    We will probably split into 2 groups depending on abilities. This is a road ride. The faster group does about 27 miles. The slower group does around 22 miles. The first ride of the season will probably be less miles.  We can stop afterward at Booze Hags.

    It's Golf time!!    


    We are a FUN golf group- we are not all great golfers, just enjoying the sport, friends and the outdoors.   

    We will be playing 'Pay as you Go' which means you can come to any one or all the dates. No prior commitments more than 1-2 weeks in advance. They are county courses, we play 9 holes and all the courses have carts available if you want one.

    We can't make reservations until 2 weeks prior, so can't confirm that we have that park or time slot until reservations are made. So, if you are interested, please call, text or email me and I will let you know for sure where we are playing. We will be starting on June 1st and will most likely golf on Tuesdays.

    We try to start at 5:20 pm or as close to that as I can get and then after golf get together for drinks/food and bragging rights about how great we all did (LOL)!

    Let me know if you are interested and I will send you a tentative schedule and add you to the weekly email list with confirmations of the site and time.

    Please email me:

    Name:

    Area of town you live/work that you will be coming from:
