Happy Fun Fri-Yay Everyone!

I’m a golf widow on many of days but I’m not complaining by any means.

The boys days spent on the green are my sanctuary of peace;

writing, doing yoga or practicing my tai chi and meditation.

While they chip, I peck away with my kitties and dogs under toe.

Sometimes they land in the sand trap like I do in a wordless phase but

we both often hit par or a birdie at the end of the day.

We’re both on the back nine that’s for sure but not my son who’s

taken the lead, and just won his annual tournament with his friend with a score of 2 under par.

Whoo Hoo!!!!!

The last time we were all together we went to the driving range with the whole fam and it was actually lots of fun.

I picked up my driver and hit airmail (a term for the ball going longer than expected) and I’m no Ace player.

I’m going to go out today and try my luck if the smoke let’s up and it’s not too hot.

Below are some pictures of the the highlights of my husband and son’s courses they have played.

Most day’s they travel far and wide to find a good deal but these are some of the best courses you’ll find in our area and they were so privileged to play, so I wanted to share them with you.

Enjoy!

Stanford Driving Range
Half Moon Bay Golf Links Course, California
Half Moon Bay Golf Links overlooking the bluff

There are two different golf courses that are set upon Northern California’s dramatic costal bluffs. It is an hour south of San Francisco. The Bay Area resort’s parkland-style Old Course, originally designed in 1973, features cypress-lined fairways and an oceanside 18th hole. The aptly named Ocean Course features a traditional Scottish design, a water view from every hole and challenging play with tight fairways and knolls. This is 30 minutes from our home so my husband and son often play here. On a beautiful day, you can see forever. These pictures don’t do justice the the course. This is where my son won the tournament with his friend Chad.

Spy Glass Hill Golf Course in Pebble Beach, California
Spy Glass Golf Course

Spyglass Hill Golf Course is in Pebble Beach, California and is ranked # 10 in America’s 100 Greatests public Corses. It is the Greatest meeting of Sand and Trees. The defining takeaway at Spyglass Hill is how starkly the first five holes juxtapose the rest of your round. It features 6,862 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. It was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. ASGCA, the Spyglass Hill golf course. It opened in 1966

Spanish Bay Golf Course in Pebble Beach, California
Spanish Bay Golf Course

My Husband just got home from playing here on Wednesday and had a great time. Again, smoke from the fire made for dismal pictures but none the less, it’s pretty hard not to have a great time in all of this beauty. Spanish Bay Golf Course is in Pebble Beach, California nuzzled among the undulating sand dunes on the western tip of the Monterey Peninisula sits The links at Spanish Bay. Designed in 1987 by a team comprised of Robert Trent Jones Jr., Tom Watson and Sandy Tatum, The Links at Spanish Bay was modeled after an authentic Scottish course.

Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, California
My son Garrett

This was by far the biggest highlight of Covid for my husband and son playing with their friends. Pebble Beach Golf Links is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful courses in the world, overlooking the coastline of Carmel Bay, opening to the paacific ocean on the south side of the Monterey Peninsula. It is considered the No. 1 Golf Resort in America. With three top 50 public courses canvasing the spectacular coastline that wraps around California’s Monterey Peninsula, golf at Pebble Beach is a truly unforgetable moment.

Harding Park Golf Course in San Francisco, California

This was an acopoliptic day on the course with the smoke from the fires. Harding Park Golf Course in San Francisco, California. The park has 27 holes of championship golf-the 18-hole Harding Park Course and the 9-hole Fleming Course (when they open up 3 holes, I might try it. Lol). It opened 95 years ago on July 18th, 1925. It is named after Preident Warren G. Harding, an avid golfer. The course covers 163-acre (0.66km 2) along the shores of Lake Merced, in the city’s southwest corner.

This book that sits on our living room table was compiled by Connor Licolli, my Godson as a labor of love to his Grandfather Hal Gevertz. It is a compilation of 357 articles of his writings from 1971-1983 and 1987-2009, which were originally written for the San Mateo Times Group Newspapers and later for the Northern California’s Golf Today. It is a beautiful coffee table book and I’m so proud of you Connor!

Thanks so much for reading and have a great weekend until we meet again.

Love and Blessings,

◇ – Diamond Hard – ◇

◇ So YOU!!! Have Experienced ALL that YOU EVER!!! Wanted and Demanded to Experience, ARE Now, based on YOUR!!! Experience, Avoiding ALL of What YOU!!! DisLike if it’s Firmly in YOUR!!! Control; so What Now EveryOne 🤔 ? WhatEver it is Let it ALL UnFold in Ways YOU NEVER!!! Expected and Enjoy it when it’s There To Be Enjoyed and Endure it when it NEEDS!!! To Be Endured; as Both WILL!!! Pass, the One and Only Constant Being Change so Be Prepared for AnyThing

nisi mortuus nec neque nolite vicit 🤭🤫🤐

◇ – Diamond Hard – ◇

ON INSISTENCE

♤ To Insist means Insisting on Getting YOUR!!! Own Way; this may be to YOUR!!! Benefit, the Benefit of The Other or, in The Best Way Possible, The Benefit of ALL

…♤♤♤…

ON MENTAL HEALTH AND AVOIDING CO-DEPENDECY

♤ Co-Operating and Co-Depending ARE Very Different; when We Co-Operate We ALL Take The Rough with The Smooth; when We ARE Co- Dependent We ARE Either Dominant or Submissive, hence and ergo:

♧ Clubbing – STIGMA!!! and Shame – Clubbing
♡ MisUnderStanding and ANGER!!!

ON SPLIT PERSONALITY

◇ So Just How Long does a USE (Ultra Sensitive Empath) HAVE TO!!! Put Up with People Being Pleasant and then Being NOT!!! So Pleasant in The Blink of an Eye 🤔 ? Personally, Ideally, I THINK!!! it’s Three Strikes and They’re OUT!!! and, Quite Often, One Strike and They’re Out…so I Suggest Setting Boundaries Fellow USEs; so Look After YourSelf First like in ANY Emergency like DePressurisation on a Plane then Gently or, if Deemed Necessary, AGGRESSIVELY!!! Assert Boundaries

Cindy, thank you for taking us on your golf outing. I don’t play but I have two neighbors who are golf pros. I live vicariously through them. My friend lives in Danville and plays several courses around the San Francisco area.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. You have a beautiful family.

Wow Cindy. Great that you did this and in a way made all of us a part of those beautiful places. Such greenery and cleanliness. I haven’t played golf ever but once our college camp was organised at a golf course and we watched a person play. He took a bad shot and five of us including me, we laughed so hard at him that he didn’t even bother to search for his ball. Haha. Good times. Loved reading this. 😇

I”m not a golfer, but I would go for those wonderful views, and from your photos I could imagine the smells and breeze coming off the ocean. Took me back to many days wandering Northern California beaches. Thank you.

I’ve played low stress golf with my brother and our kids (very low stress golf since we’re all terrible) and what fun. I don’t blame you for taking advantage of a peaceful home at times, Cindy, but it sounds like getting out there is a great way to spend time with everyone. I love the views of the ocean especially when the sky is blue. Even up here in Oregon, the smoke has put a damper on outside fun.

Really loved all the pics you shared. At one time I was playing lots of golf, usually in the low 90’s. The best time I had was when I visited my friend in Ireland. Man, some of those bunkers were nearly as tall as me (6’0). My addiction ended all that. I still get angry over my psychotic ex forcing me to sell my clubs. I kept them for years with the intention of going again one day. Never did. Thanks for the obvious work you put into this post. It shows.
