It’s a sunny Saturday at the Links.

The men and women sit around and laugh and chitchat. One of the oldtimers confirmed what I already suspected. They visit the golf course every weekend just to be with each other. The main thing is the camaraderie, the friendships. The golf is secondary.

Sure they enjoy some time out on the course. But the real fun comes when they’re together on the patio talking about whatever they want to talk about. That’s the real fun on this beautiful fall day.

I’ve never been a golfer. But I can totally relate to the joy of being outdoors and the thrill of visiting with friends. The laughter. The smiles. Sometimes the tears. We all savor our moments together, especially during this year of struggling with a pandemic.
