Where the outdoor fun is found, even if you play the course


I’d find this funny in any case, but as a golfer I find it humorous in the extreme, and a great example of why it’s important to keep a close tab on your punctuation.

Today I found in the mail a flyer from an area golf establishment offering special rates on memberships that include play at a number of area courses, cheap lessons, family social events, etc., and all for a reduced entry fee.  I’m not likely to join since the course closest to my house is about ten times as far away as where I play now (at a much lower monthly rate), but still I looked over the flyer.  There, among the many enticing offers and colorful photos and alluring graphics, is a testimonial from “Canongate Member since 2011.”  Well, if old C.M. really said this, in this way, I understand his reason for maintaining anonymity.

In the pull quote the man tells me that he and his wife and sons have spent their first day as members at their new club, that they enjoyed a lovely meal, and that then they spent “three hours outdoors together having more fun than we’ve had in a long time, and playing golf too.”

It’s a smile…
