    Joe, Joe's Niece and I had a great day of golf today. Met up with Joe(Eracer) and his niece over at Morning Star golf course in Mukwanago WI. What a gorgeous course. Built in an old quarry it had some great eleveation changes and some really nice hole layouts. Really just an all around beautiful track.

    Great golf, Great food, Great company.

    I'll let the pictures do most of the talking.

    I was behind the camera for all the pictures and i completely forgot after the round to get a picture together with him.

    Here is one of him in one of the many bunkers we both played out of that day.

    lol, nope, it was upper 80's and humid. Surprising thing to me was that there were no water buckets on the course. Only in the clubhouse could you get water(unless you bought bottled water from the cart girl) Since my dumbass didn't have any cash left, i waited and drank about 6 glasses of water with lunch.

    All the courses we play no longer have water coolers on tee boxes. A few years ago, there was a contamination issue at some courses in Arizona. Staff, I believe, was filling coolers from garden hoses that had become contaminated with chemicals, etc. Golfers were upchucking over more than chunked wedges. So... that gave an excuse to courses to cut the cost of coolers, staff filling coolers, and collect additional revenue by selling water in bottled form.

    We all just take a couple bottles with us each round. If we need a refill, we'll hit the water fountain that is inside the clubhouse at the turn.

    All the county course down here have water every few holes. They have jugs inside padlocked wooden boxes and the rangers bring the water from the clubhouse. Pretty safe, lot's of ice in it and it is extremely refreshing.

    I had a great time, but jeebus man you should have told me you needed water! I'd have sprung for a bottle or two.
    Nice golf course. Thanks for being patient with my niece.

    I was fine. I was in too much of a hurry to stop by the ATM on the way out, so I should suffer the consequences. No big deal.

    She played very well! I think with some clubs more suited to her game and a complete matching set would help her immensely. I'm not sure i could have hit those blades as well as she was.

    Nice to see you're screen name back here!

    Yeah, lots of fairway bunkers too. I'm not used to fairway bunkers at all. I got into one on the back nine that was deep enough I couldn't see over the lip. I got over the lip but still not over the hill and i couldn't see any fairway. So i just hit it again in the general direction of where I thought it should go. Get over the hill, Joe tells me, Did you see your ball? It's in that other bunker....

    :(

    The second bunker was still at least 150 yards out...lol

    From what I see, the bunkers are all placed in locations your ball's not supposed to find anyway. I don't understand the problem here? ;)

    I will say that the day we spent (Eracer, my wife and I, and my oldest boy) playing golf in FL was a great day. Joe is excellent company and a solid golfer. I was lucky enough to meet his dad (we played his course), and I can tell you that the apple fell very close to the tree: dad was a great guy as well!

    Yep! I wear them when I want to hit my gap wedge 95 yards like Rock!

    Doing well. Family is growing and active, which = less golf time for Susan and I.

    How about you? And how are your folks?

    btw, William's played 2 years of high school golf already and has played some nice courses. He told me recently that the nicest course he's ever played was your dad's. He really enjoyed that day!

    In my defense, I jarred that shot. So, you can eat your panties (if you haven't already done so).

    the parents are getting older, but both are good. My brother got married 10 days ago, which is why I was in Eric's neck of the woods. The family was there, and we had a good time.

    Tell William the best part of my day was seeing his excellent swing. It sure wasn't mine, lol.
