    We are blessed in SA with golf year round and some truly AMAZING tracks. Champagne Sports and Leopard Creek (home of the Dunhill Championship every Dec) are two of my favorites. I'm lucky to be able to play these!

    Hi eclark, yea they are. I'm going to play both of them now in the first week of April. Champagne Sports' leaves will be turning and the colors are just amazing. I'll post pics again on this thread to show you. I visit there about 8 times per year. Simply amazing.

    That game had me worried. I had to watch. I even watched most of Kentucky because who doesn't love to see a little carnage now and again, like a car wreck.

    I kept telling myself not to watch anymore, but there I found myself, slowly rolling by, rubbernecking at the TV. Like a lion destroying a young gazelle. So much for 36-1. Don't poke the bear WV!

    When I win Powerball, one of my "bucket list" items is a trip to SA to play golf with a couple of guys from ShotTalk. SA is the ONLY overseas area I'd be the least bit interested in spending money to visit.

    What is the "cash" of which you speak?? Is that something new? We're old, feeble, almost retired, barely getting by on the local food pantry and Meals-on-Wheels. Woops! Just heard a loud fart come from the bedroom. If she's eating enough to have gas, she'd got some food stashes I don't know about!!! Durn women!! Gonna be a long day if Grandma's got the walkin' farts!!!!!
