      LM - Our lives are so parallel. My hubby took me once too but I hit myself in the head with a ball when it bounced off a tree. Needless to say I have not gone again.

      My husband took me golfing once. There's a reason he never asked me back. I look much like a windmill trying to hit that dang ball.

      Caddyshack is such a great movie!!!!

      Some very good ideas here. Most of the golfers that I know tend to be rather fanatical about the game. Unfortunately, they're not that close of friends for me to be buying them gifts.
