Don't be short, left or long on this tee shot.

 I remember telling him NOT to hit the ball left. 

In fact I was the only member of our foursome to hit the green.

Everyone else was in the water!

This was a nice little Par 5! 

The 3rd shot to the green was a real challenge!

There were 7 holes in a row along the water!

 Sandy Lane Golf Club, Barbados.  This first picture is the spot where Tiger Woods got married.

 The 18th hole.........A SHORT? Par 3 over water. 

We all missed the green but made Par anyway!

We went to Alaska in July 2005 to visit

Our son Anthony & his family.  The golf course

is named Moose Run.  I was able to Birdie this Par 5 over

That raging creek. If you look closely, you will see my ball

a foot from the pin after hitting a wedge over the creek!
