Rise and Shine --- A good walk spoiled

Good Morning and here we are again!

For a short time, golf seemed like a fun game. It gave a few hours of fun outside and a little bit of exercise (well, those times we didn't use a cart).
Then, playing the game became too expensive. When fees started reaching the $30 range, well, there were other (better?) things to do with the money.
A couple of weeks ago, the boys found the old clubs in the back of the garage. They pulled them out and started hitting balls around the front yard. Well, before any windows were broken or cars were dented, they were put away.
Now, the question comes all the time: "Can we go golfing?"
They've never been out on a regular course. Minature golf, though, seems to be keeping them at bay.
Hitting red (or orange or yellow) balls through various obstacles gives us a few laughs and some fun.
Most of those courses are down at the shore, but, not wanting to drive there every weekend, we've had to adapt. We've found 'courses' around the area.
It's only a matter of time, though, when the clubs are going to have to come out.
