Yesterday I played miniature golf for the first time in my life. I posted this photo on Facebook, captioned with 1st time ever playing miniature golf….. and here are the comments that immediately followed:
Seriously? You’ve never played??
EXACTLY what the person above asked / said…
Ever? How is that even possible?
Lisa, this is the shocker of the day!!
You got me “first time playing miniature golf”….
Who knew that I had been missing out on something that apparently was “a rite of passage at the Jersey shore” according to another friend. So here we were at the Jersey shore and I was finally going to have a go at it.
It was pretty difficult trying to use just the right amount of pressure with that club to hit the ball. My husband reminded me it wasn’t baseball and the club wasn’t a bat.Then trying to line up the ball with the hole which was sometimes hidden out of sight. The first few holes it took me between 8 and 10 times to get the ball in. By the time I got to the 10th hole things started to improve and it was taking 3 tries, and the last few holes only 2. Final score: Husband: 55, Me: 70. As my husband said, it would have been a good score for bowling. The score didn’t matter, it had been loads of fun, the course located on the boardwalk facing the ocean, the sun was bright and I had done something I had never done before. FORE!
