Being around friends who play golf over the last two years rekindled our interest though and so in early February, we looked on Craigslist and found a men's and ladies starter set being sold by a couple in nearby Labelle, Florida. They delivered the clubs to us at the campground. They were inexpensive box "his and her" Knights sets but were like new and would work well enough to see if we wanted to pursue the game. After a couple of days looking for golf shoes, we were ready to hit the links.
Our first golf outing was with Pam and Ernie where we went for 9 holes at Lehigh Acres Resort Golf Course. I had not hit a single practice ball or swung the new (used) clubs. Naturally, I feared I wouldn't be able to strike the ball. I did hit it but not I couldn't get it off the ground. We laughed and called them "worm burners"

|A good laugh to loosen up.|
|Old guys (with bellies) rule.|
He's still got it!
|Yours truly, looking strangely awkward but excited to be there.|
|Pam. Not sure but I think this was her old driver.|
Before she got the new Cobra which "strikes" regularly.

Here's Pam, Nancy and Sue after 18 holes that nearly killed me. Whew!
