Pefect Day

Yesterday, Steve, Doug and I played 18 holes at Hidden Valley Country Club here in Sandy, UT. It was a sunny, blue sky day, about 64 degrees. We teed off at just after 3:00 and finished at 6:00. No one holding us back, no one pushing us. When I arrived at the course, a fox was walking on the grass near the parking lot. About 20 feet behind the fox was a large deer who seemed to be following the fox to where ever the fox was going. A few other of our resident deer were grazing at the far end of the driving range. Seemingly unaware, or at least unconcerned, about range balls being launched in their direction. After all these years at HVCC it still thrills me to have the deer, fox and other critters share the course with us.

We played our normal games with some good holes and some not so good. The bets were small, no one won or lost enough to buy dinner; just enough to make you want to beat the other fellows. The course was in good shape, the pace of play could not have been better, the weather was great and my companions were a pleasure to be with.

A perfect day of golf.
