The weather didn't cooperate with my planned challenge, and DH offered some suggestions that were either tongue-in-cheek or not really practical. He did accidentally provide the inspiration, though, as he was listening to the commentary on the US Masters on the radio in bed.
You don't have to use golf; golf terminology in other contexts is fine - so we have the possibilities of iron, wood, green, bunkers (plenty of WW2 bunkers when I worked in Guernsey), rough, sand, eagles (an albatross isn't likely, alas)...and not having a sporting bone in my body that's about as far as I can go. But if you tell me it's golfing related, I'll believe you. I guess plaids and checks and typical golfing clothing are good too.

A birdie, holed in one - sometimes I see a pigeon perched in this hole in the quays along the river. I was lucky to spot him yesterday. It doesn't seem to be a drainage hole, in that I've never seen water come out of even on wet days, so I guess it's a nice dry shelter for the birds.
DH doesn't play golf, pitch and putt is as far as he's gone, so this isn't a grown-up club, just one of his little ones.
I live less than a half hours drive from Pinehurst, NC. My family went to the Pinehurst Country Club and looked at the beautiful greens of Pinehurst #2 while there. There are some of the pictures I took that day. They were taken before the challenge, I hope that's okay. ~ Pam

Wow Pam, that is one majestic golf course! All your photos are wonderful. I love the clock and the putter boy, but my oh my!....those clothes are outlandish. I'd sure love to see someone wear those wild shorts!
BTW, how did you manage to upload 5 photos to one post? I always thought 3 was the limit.
I took a walk onto the golf course this evening as the sun was getting low in the sky. This is a small local golf course that was created from a horse pasture, so nothing even resembling the fancy high class course that Pam showed in her photos! Keep in mind also, that our grass is still a winter brown....we need a couple of warm rains to green everything up. Photo 1. The sign at the 3rd hole, then a small water hazard, next a close up of the aerated grass on the green, and the last one is the sand trap, taken towards the sun, so it's a bit hazy.

I like those - they do look more like autumn than spring, though. Our grass is on its third cut already - a lot of other things suffered from our snow, though.
The aerated grass one is amazing - I've never seen that before.
