I don’t know if my family can pull this off. At the very least, we are already raising eyebrows at the driving range. However, we have a good friend who has volunteered to teach the girls to play golf, and the girls absolutely love it. It’s kind of crazy the way they pay attention and don’t seem to get bored.
So far I have concluded that dresses aren’t going to work. I’ve been perusing thredUP for golf-y clothes without much luck, but we do have some preppy looking shorts on the way. I think I will need to purchase more practical shoes as well. Larkspur may be going to golf camp this summer, and I don’t want her to stand out as a “nature person.”
Seth is joining them at my insistence. He’s pretty one track with his interests, and we do our best to encourage (gently force) him to widen his horizons. He definitely likes playing, so while he might complain about changing his plans a couple afternoons a week, he has a great time once he’s at the golf course. Gabe and Keats want to play too, but no way! They already play travel baseball, and that is enough. They get to tag along and putt sometimes but that’s it. My boys are funny. At my house they either they want to do everything or nothing when it comes to sports.
Any golf playing families out there? Care to share any tips, fashion advice, or just general stories? This is a foreign land for me. So far the main conclusion that I have reached is that I think golf will pair best with sock knitting.
