During the cold winter months I like to think about the past season of golf and travel.

My steady playing partner for golf is my wife and I really enjoy playing with her. She is really good - my steady Eddie I call her off the tee box. We discovered a couples league last year and boy was that a lot of fun. We met some really nice people, and we are looking forward to doing it again this year. I even got her to get out of her shell and join a women’s league …. she’s growing.

Anyway, back to the title of this article. “Why I will never get my wife to join a golf club”. Well, I won’t and the reason is pretty simple … we like to travel and play golf ( also she is financially efficient ). When we hit a certain milestone age we decided “NO MORE COLD BIRTHDAYS”! We both have January birthdays. Our progress started out typically - cruises. One day she came to me and told me she wanted to start playing golf again … It such a sweet thing to hear … It was like finding a new cup holder in your car. As she got better we started to explore more courses and then we took our first golf trip to Tucson, AZ. AWESOME!!! We stayed at this place that was like a cruise ship on land. We were hooked on golf and traveling. So, knowing my wife ( and I am sure other men’s wives) if she paid for it she is going to use it. That would mean whatever course we joined that is the only course we would play … that is not our style.

Besides playing courses around Kansas City (which there are a lot to explore), we have traveled to Canada, Dubai, Tucson, Arkansas, North Carolina and other places to play golf. I haven’t gotten her to Oklahoma yet, but I’m gonna.

As you can see joining a single club would not really be our style.

Anyway, I just wanted to share.
