I am SO EXCITED about this super cool opportunity and hope a bunch of you will join us!!!! What a fun way to start off the Memorial Day weekend!! **PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A WEATHER-PERMITTING MEETUP! PLEASE CHECK THE COMMENT WALL OF THIS MEETUP IF WEATHER IS LOOKING IFFY THAT MORNING!** If you have never played legit golf in your life OR if you've played a little and don't really know what you're doing OR if you've played and you're super rusty and need a refresher on the basics, THIS IS THE MEETUP FOR YOU!!! We have been offered a wonderful opportunity to dip our toes in with BREC's Golf Development Manager, Jack, at what I'm told is a beautiful golf course in Baton Rouge! Jack, our event planner and golf instructor, suggested we meet at BREC's Santa Maria golf course because it's big, and we will be able to carve a little area just for us. Jack is going to provide some super basic instruction and practice time, and then he will divide us into pairs for a little just-for-fun competition! (We will NOT be doing 18 holes; no one has 842 hours to devote to this Meetup as beginners chase their golf balls all over South Louisiana. We will be sticking in one small portion of the course.) We expect the clinic and competition to last a total of 2 to 2.5 hours depending on attendance. WE ARE MEETING AT 9:00 A.M. to get paid up and ready to go on time; class starts at 9:30 a.m. SHARP! (Exact meeting location TBD.) We are ONLY being charged a fee for golf balls(!!!), and (including tax) they charge $4 for 45 balls, $7 for 60 balls, and $10 for 75 balls. HOWEVER, Jack said it will be difficult to nurse a small or medium basket for the full time, so he's offered unlimited balls to anyone who pays the $10. THERE IS A SPECIAL DRESS CODE for golf courses that must be adhered to . . . More details soon! BREC will provide the golf clubs, but if you can bring your own, Jack said you only need a wedge and a putter. For those interested, we will head to a nearby TBD lunch spot after playing! Please invite any friends and family members 21 and up! Just include them in your RSVP. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!!
