For the tournament the 70+ children attending the camp were broken into three groups: Advanced (9 holes), Intermediate (6 holes), and Beginner (3 holes).
Our girls played in the beginner group, and the boys played with the advanced (they had been moved up from intermediate early in the week). Hubby had signed up as a volunteer (or rather I signed him up), and was assigned to keep score for the team that our girls played with, including one other cute little girl. They were so fun to watch!
The forecast was predicting rain, but thankfully the downpour waited until the kids were finished and it just sprinkled here and there while we were out on the course.
Surprisingly, especially since my parents and so many of my brothers and sisters now play golf (one brother is headed to college in a year on a golf scholarship), this was my very first time walking a golf course! One of these years I'd love to learn how to play too. In the meantime it was sure fun to watch and snuggle with my little Bud.
I was amazed at how much the kids had learned over the week. Our godson won first place in the tournament for the beginner group, Rascal was very excited about his 3 shot par, and Captain won the prize for the Most Improved and Inspirational Player for the week!
They all had such a great time that we decided to enroll them in a second week of golf camp, which began this morning at a different golf course. This week's camp is for children ages 5-16, so even our little Snuggles is now old enough to join the "big kids." Hubby was able to take them all this morning, and I stayed home with the two babies. (I'll head to town in a little while to pick everyone up.) Rose just woke up and is eating her breakfast and Bud is still sleeping... (I'm sure he is extra tired after fussing most of the night... poor baby!) It is so quiet around here I hardly know what to do with myself! ;)
