Back to School

Golf school that is!!! My husband and I went to a three day golf school this past weekend and boy was it fun. He is a great golfer and was able to tweak a few old habits BUT I'm a new golfer and learning it ALL. The weather was gorgeous and so wonderful to be outdoors. The school is in Stratton Vermont which is high in the mountains. Skiing in the winter and golfing and biking in the warmer weather. Here take a look Stratton Mountain

We had golf school Friday, Saturday and Sunday 9am to 1pm.....yes, that is a lot of one on one and yes, I was exhausted after each session but it was so worth it. I really want to be a good golfer, I have a long way to catch up with Hb. But I'm not worried because we are doing it so we can have a healthy hobby to do together in up coming retirement. (few years yet)

The scenery is so beautiful, so green, they don't call Vermont the Green Mountain State for nothing. Here have a look.

                                                     Green, sunny and blue sky

                                             Golf cart when we played at the course, not lessons

                                                   My Clubs


                                                   More green at golf school

                                                     Practice greens

                                                    Had to throw one in....and action shoot

                                                   I sat many times

Any other golfers out there!?! Any helpful hints or funny stories!?
It was a fun weekend and great to learn something new, never to old, they say!

Thanks for popping in dear people. Welcome to my new followers and a big thank you to all my true blue followers who started with me years ago. I welcome you all and am thankful for this wonderful way of communicating with all of you.

  5. That sounds so exciting Robin, and what a good thing to do in preparation for sharing that wonderful hobby together. A gorgeous golf course too, and I love your buggy with all that purple! Keep practising, and enjoy it! xoJoy

  6. Hi Robin, Have fun learning something new in a beautiful setting. (that is common here in Michigan---ski in the winter and golf/biking in the summer).
    Happy learning, dear Robin.

  7. Hello dear Robin,

    Looks like you had great time, one happy golfer there swinging :) We have a course quite nearby, but unfortunately I haven't even tried it! I dream of mastering it once we retire and move to Spain (not that near future ) so maybe I should try it?

    Wishing you wonderful golfing-days, sunny and summery!
