Do your golf clubs suffer from S.A.D.?

It’s January 21, 2012 — almost two months since I lifted a golf club.  I remember the last time as if it was yesterday.  18th hole, Ka’anapali Kai…  My golfguy and I were reminiscing about the last 3 weeks when we played golf every day in paradise. We were moaning a bit that we were down to our last 2 ... Read More »

Is it adios time for the Aloha season?

Every January I count down the days to the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.  Imagine an event where only winners are invited to play – what could be more exciting than that? Well, actually almost anything this year. Last weekend I had it on in the background while I did more stimulating things – like tallying year end expenses for my taxes. Normally when ... Read More »

Add this CLUB to your golf fitness regime

How often have we heard people complain that golf is an elitist sport for the wealthy?  Well, I’m not wealthy by any means and I play golf as much as I can.  But I do have to admit some golf courses charge so much for green fees I feel like I have to use my house as collateral before handing over my ...

If it’s good enough for Annika, it’s good enough for me!

Back in 2010 I was very focused on improving my golf handicap.  I put together a 10 step program to better golf and dropped 3 points off my index.  It was a very good year. 2011?  Not so much… Last year my handicap remained flat even though my game felt okay and I shot my lowest score twice while vacationing ...

Golf Fore Gals on Maui: Where Wahines Win!

For those of us who began playing golf with husbands or boyfriends, we all remember how naked we felt on the first tee in front of strangers, especially those golfers who never bothered to wait for us to tee off before heading down the fairway (or into the woods) to hit their next shot. I almost gave up the game ... Read More »

Golf doesn’t get any better than this!

Every year I hear first-time PGA Tour winners talk about how delighted they (and their wives) are about finally being able to travel to Maui in January to play the PGA TOUR Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Even though they had just won over $1M (which could buy a lot of golf rounds :)), they are as excited as a kid ... Read More »

Great Gift for the Ardent Golfer

Legs like Buttah! I’ve always thought that Ernie Els’ swing was poetry in motion. It looks completely effortless and rhythmic; some might even go so far as to say it is as smooth as Barbra Streisand’s legs… “Like buttah!” (Ooops, I think I’m dating myself 🙂 ).  Anyway, back to golf… Except for my comments on The Big Easy, I ...

Don’t let grumpy golfers get you down

How many times have you played a round of golf with someone you hope you never lay eyes on again?  Not very often I’m sure.  99% of the golfers I meet on the first tee are wonderful people – friendly, supportive and fun.  So imagine my dismay when I drove up to the first tee last weekend to discover a ...

Ka’anapali Golf – Where fun and friendships flourish

I just read this quote from a Facebook friend … “The friends you make on the golf course are the friends you make for life.” – Jessica Anderson Valentine, Scottish golfer and thought how timely it was.  Let me explain… Last week my golfguy and I played a round of golf at one of our favorite courses — the Royal Ka’anapali Golf ...

Playing Golf Vegas Style in Maui

Every year I can’t wait for November to arrive – it’s the month of my great escape to paradise where I can golf golf golf.  Each time it’s more wonderful than the one before and this year was no exception, because it started off with one of the most fun-filled scrambles I’ve ever played.  The day after I arrived on Maui, I ...
