Mrs. Smith goes to Pinehurst
Ever have a guy give you the news about a friend?s new baby? Here?s what he?ll say: ?hey, the baby was born.? If you?re lucky you?ll find out if it was a boy or a girl.
Here?s what a girlfriend would tell you: the baby?s gender, name, weight, length, general health, the date and exact time of birth, the number of hours of labor, the condition of the new mom, what type of delivery it was, whether or not the mom got an epidural, how many flowers she?s received, and maybe if she?s especially astute, your girlfriend might mention the décor of the birthing room.
In a similar vein, when guys report on a golf course, it sounds something like this: it plays 6,600 yards, the greens are fast, and it costs $70. If he?s especially astute, your friend might mention the course designer.
Well ladies, times have changed. There?s a new golf reporter in town, and her name is Jen Mario. I?m heading out to Pinehurst today, and I plan to find out what you really want to know. Namely, how?s the spa? Also, how do they treat our kids? Would it make for a good family trip? Do they like women there or do we all get funny looks? What is there to do besides golf? Are the courses so hard I?ll embarrass myself? Which course suits which handicap? Is it a good value?
These are the burning questions for us ladies, and I intend to find out the answers. Look for my article coming soon.
I?m packing my bags, and I?m as giddy as a little girl. Wish me luck as I tee it up on Number 2.
