But just because I know nothing about golf doesn't stop me from posting about it. After all, Wayne Swan knows nothing about budgeting and that doesn't stop him.
|"Every golfer will get a climate change support payment of $850 to buy extra sunblock cream"|
|Answer: Just a few - there are over 170 courses in the area|
|“I once showed Pat Bradley my swing and said, ‘What do I do next?’ Pat replied, ‘Wait till the pain dies down.’”|
Grand Cyprus: Considered the best course in Orlando - well 4 courses really! North, East, South and New!
|“My only regret is that they don’t have an intensive care unit in the Eisenhower Medical Center for my golf game.”|
It's all finely mown grass, raked sand and Florida Slash Pine as far as the eye can see
The Reserve at Orange Lake Resort:
|“Bing was an excellent player, with the slowest backswing I’ve ever seen. While he was taking the club back you could fit him for a tailored suit.”|
Disney's Magnolia Course. Don't tell me you weren't expecting these sandtraps:
|“That reminds me of Sammy Davis (Jr.). Sammy hits a nice ball, about 90 yards. But his jewellery flies 110.”|
|“It’s fun playing with Dean Martin. Dean doesn’t drink liquor anymore. He drinks Windex. He gets an awful hangover but his eyes are so clear…I’ve seen Deano send a ball over 250 yards…just by breathing on it.”|
Disney's Old Key West Resort is built around Disney's Lake Buena Vista course. You could tee off straight from your balcony:
|“Arnold Palmer …He’s the biggest crowd pleaser since the invention of portable sanitary facilities… He’s won as much money as I’ve spent on lessons.”|
Visit Florida has a couple of videos. This first one shows Rosen Shingle Creek and Grand Cyprus
“I went to play golf and tried to shoot my age, but I shot my weight instead.”
Here's a couple of minutes of golfing at WDW:
"If President Eisenhower slices the budget like he slices a golf ball, the nation has nothing to worry about."
Hmmm .... that brings me back to where I opened - I wonder if Wayne Swan slices when he plays golf?
Oh - and remember to take that extra sunblock you'll be buying with your climate change bonus. Orlando in June is hotter than ..... well .... let's keep it polite and say the outback in summer.
for my friend Marg - keep swinging!
