Fairy Tale Friday



A half price offer in the local newspaper for a round of golf intrigued the girls. None of them had ever played golf before, but they could just see the course from the top of the tower, and it was always full of rich men with sporty cars. That gave the possibility of booze, romance and a life lived happily ever after. To ensure their place on the course, the girls bought up all the newspapers in the local shop (can't have any rivals getting the same idea) and then it was time to get some golf clubs and the correct clothing.

Clubs were borrowed from the local vicar. Subtle comments about turning up for choir practise, and how the girls had been practising their singing panicked the vicar, and his clubs were in the girls possession as quick as a flash.

The girls next stop was the local sports shop to invest in smart casual wear for the course. Amazed at the colours and patterns available, the girls spent four hours trying on different styles and colours. The final result looked like an explosion of distress inks inside the shop.

The girls climbed into the back of the minibus and careered down towards the golf course. Gayle was trying to drive sensibly, but every time she looked in the rear view mirror all she could see was a blinding array of colour.

Pulling into the car park, Gayle ran the minibus up a verge smashing into a signpost which said "Village Golf Course, please drive carefully" and before Gayle could reverse to re-park, the girls had clambered out the minibus and were swaggering across the car park looking out for handsome, available men, leaving Gayle to bring up the rear pulling the only set of golf clubs on a little trolley.

Stepping up to the first tee, the girls muscled in in front of two guys who looked on dumbfounded.  Claire was up first, she lay her ball on the wee 'spiky thing' that she found in the golf bag then pulled a 'stick' out of the bag. The biggest one she could find. "Watch this ladies" she said as she swung with all her force missing the ball completely and spinning round and round in a circle. Her next swing took a huge divot out of the ground and her ball bounced forward twenty feet.

The guys behind looked on trying not to laugh.

Gayle came up next and pulled out the shortest club, the putter. She struck the ball as hard as she could and it rolled 30 yards down the hill. The girls all let out a scream, and Gayle yelled 'mine' and ran away down the fairway with her putter.

Forty minutes later, the girls all arrived at the green (the two guys had given up and went to the pub). They could have been quicker, but with only one set of clubs the trolley was wheeled from left to right, then backwards...then it was left into the woods, pulled back out into the sand bunker, onto the next hole where Colette managed to slice the ball, and finally back to the green. All the girls stood there watching, eyeing up the hole trying to look professional.  Colette had the driver in her hands as she tried to putt from 3 feet. She struck the ball and it went 30 yards past the hole and took a big lump of grass out of the ground.

Disaster after disaster continued. In fact by the time they had finished that hole, the course looked as if there had been a battle on it. Huge chunks of mud taken out all across the course, there was no sand left in any of the bunkers, and several trees had been felled when Gayle got stuck in the woods and refused to come out until she had hit the ball.

And so they went from the 1st hole straight to the '19th' hole (the bar). The girls got drunk, and were gushing about how good golf was. In fact they were going to come back next week and play the second hole. As unknown as the girls were when they went into the bar, by the time they left, very much worse for wear (although Gayle was sober as she was driving), the girls had become infamous, and a lifetimes ban is now on the way in the post!!!
So, as that's another new 'hobby' ruined!!!  While the girls figure out what to try next they managed to make some wonderful cards...x
