I think it's been 17 yrs my DH has wanted to get me golfing, he would take me out now and then and I always thought of it as a "blah" day. He has always golfed and never gave up trying to get me golfing; what a golfer will do to get out more. I'll never forget the day he got me clubs in hopes that I would start golfing, it didn't work they sat in the closet for 8 yrs before I got them out on the course. He would take me to the driving range and we would hit balls, and I think I golfed maybe 5 times up until last year. Being an empty nester I think has something to do with my new found love, time is no longer an issue and maybe we have more patience? :evillaugh We went to Mexico for 2 weeks in 2013 and DH had booked 5 tee times; all of which I joined him for. I don't know what it was: was it the tequila? the course? the fabulous people we met? or a combination of everything? Talk about hook, line and sinker; I caught the bug! We weren't even home and I was itching to go out and golf, which in February in BC is a hit or miss pending on rain (possible snow) and crummy wet conditions. That June we joined a club and ever since then pending on weather we are out on the glorious course chasing the little white ball as much as possible. What got you hooked on golf?
