Adventures at Fowler's Mill

So the golf team has pretty much lived at Fowler's Mill this past week. We've been here Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and will be here tomorrow too.

The first story I have to tell you is about our practice round Thursday. The ninth hole on the Lake nine is this weirdo hole with a river down the middle of it, so it essentially has two fairways. I teed off, and dummy me goes in the water...or so I thought.

We walk down so I can drop my ball and see that there are three balls in the fairway, and one of them was only about 50 or 60 yards away from the green. Just for the heck of it, I go see who's ball it is. Lo and behold, it's my ball! Of course, Emily and Becca throw a fit about it. The funny thing is that we saw my ball splash in the middle of the river. And it just decided to hit some rocks or something just right and hop into the middle of the fairway. I guess it decided to be cat-like and hate water. Sometimes I wish more balls were like that.

And today was the first day of OAC's. As a team, we almost reached our goal for the season of a 360 or 370, which would be awesome. And with our super awesome rain gloves, we are so gonna be prepared for tomorrow's down pour. So bring it on, rain! I'm ready for you!
