  • To play your best game, learn the rules of golf before heading to the course

     Golf is a game of both honor and intrigue. The golfer does not actually play against other golfers. The player plays against the course. 

    Yes, there are group and team competitions, but the essential game of golf is played by one person and the competition is not the other golfers but the course. 

    Golf is simple. The lowest score played against the course wins.

  • Golf: A mountain treat in Gatlinburg, Tenn.

    My husband, Gene, and I went to Gatlinburg, Tenn., last week and we loved it.
    We had heard it was a lot like Myrtle Beach, and that was a fine reason to go. I love our crazy, funky, touristy area with its Canadian and Minnesota tourists, its bike rallies, golf courses, shows and big buffets. They say Myrtle Beach is the blue collar capital of the world, and that’s fine with me. Heck, I’m the daughter of a Maryland chicken farmer, so I’m comfortable with blue collar.
