The last time Jen and I golfed together was January 2007. We took a New Year’s ‘baby moon’ to Cuba before the birth of Zacharie. We stayed at a nice resort with a golf course and we played every other day.
This week, as we celebrate a ‘child free week’ with the boys visiting their grands, we found time to play some golf again.Bear Mountain Resort in Victoria in the summer of 2006 (above left). I had just hit a big ratings bonus on Z95.3 and so I took my new girlfriend away for some tee time. We played Bear Mountain, and had dinner at the Sooke Harbour House and a had a romantic weekend away.
7 years later, we still have the itch, and scratched it at Maple Ridge Golf Course in Calgary (above right).
Our 7 year itch was a little different than the summer of 2006. We didn’t play a championship course, we only played 9 holes on a municipal track. We didn’t have a romantic dinner, we had hot dogs at the starter shack. We didn’t have a romantic resort, we slept in our own bed.
It’s different, but totally the same.
