I love to play golf. I would play 18 holes, seven days a week if I could. That said, the one time that I do not like the game of golf is when I cannot see or find the ball. When the grass dies in the winter it becomes light brown and almost white. Combine that with a sky that tends to be overcast and it is hard to find the ball when it is hit off the tee or the fairway. With so many neutral colors it can be extremely difficult to find the ball even if it is hit in the middle of the fairway.
This afternoon I had a 12:06 tee time but I knew it was going to be pushed back because of a frost delay. I assumed the frost delay would push back all the earlier tee times which would mean I would tee off around 1 or 1:30 pm. I received an email around 10:30 am stating there would be a shotgun start starting at noon due to the frost delay. In the back of my mind I was thinking this was going to be a complete disaster. My home course does not get lots of play so a shotgun start on a Saturday was sure to be interesting.
