#21: Get Golf Lessons

July 23, 2008

With a month to kill back here in Portland, I switched into planner-mode and decided to finish some items on my 101 Things in 1001 Days list. I called a few golf courses in the area, but most classes were around $50 per lesson. This seemed pretty outrageous to me, but I finally heard through a friend, of classes that they’re starting out at Rose City Golf in NE Portland. So I signed up for their ladies only 4 session group class. After a month of weekly classes, I feel confident enough to golf at a real course. I had only gone to pitch and putts so it was nice to learn how to hit with the other clubs, how to “read a green” etc. OK, driving the golf cart was fun too. ;)

    Okay, maybe I need to move to Portland. It’s more expensive where I live for lessons but heaven knows I need them. So you learned how to “read a green”? I’ve just been trying on my own. Maybe I need to bite the bullet and just pay the price. If I could learn what you did, it might be worth it.
