Boca Raton Resort and Club Golf Course

OMG! Golfing is so much fun! I just do not understand why guys get so upset at such a fun game! We were able to lounge around in the golf cart, playing in the fun Florida sun, and chase balls into holes. Sounds pretty stress free to me. Ha! I soon learned many people are SUPER SERIOUS about GOLF!

I have watched the PGA with my dad occasionally and I have played my fair share of putt putt. You would think my vast experience would instantly make me a course expert! However, being the good girlfriend that I am, I opted to tag along to learn all I could anyways.

Jason, being the good sport that he is, was ever so patient in showing me the ropes at the Boca Resort Gold Course as well as the rules to golf!

The Rules To Golf …as I see it

[em]The gentleman golfer fills his divot.[/em] The sand in the back of your golf cart is a divot filler. It wasn’t left over from the last little kid who drove the cart. Filling a divot is not supposed to be fun or celebrated. It seems the filling of a divot means the golf swing was angry, a shot was missed or just bad luck? Perhaps it doesn’t mean anything at all (there were so many rules, you cannot expect me to remember them all.

[quote cite=’Jennifer  {In her best stately voice} ‘ align=’right’]During a proper game of golf a certain etiquette is followed[/quote]

[em]The water and sand are NOT to make the golf course pretty.[/em] Nor are they for the caddies to sun themselves when they get a break. It seems they are there for the sole purpose of annoying the golfers. If your golfing buddy gets stuck in the sand, do NOT attempt to get the picture of him getting out. You will be doused with sand.

[em]There is an order to the golf course in which you must follow in a timely manner.[/em] Crazy right? You have to go on the path, in a consecutive manner. You aren’t allowed to skip around and if you’re the one stuck with driving, you have to pay attention to signs and stuff… (totally Jason’s job). You also have to keep quiet when golfers swing AND you should not take the time to take pictures unless the staff is as courteous as they are at the Boca Raton Resort & Club, one of south Florida luxury resorts (for a reason).

After a half day of my very first time on a “real” golf course, I’ve decided it can’t be that hard. I was right! See me shoot a hole in one below!

When Jason and I visited the Boca Raton Resort & Club Golf Course, we were lucky enough to have free time to putt (hee hee) around and take some pictures. The course really was beautiful and I had a great time.

  1. It looks like you had so much fun! I’ve never golfed before, but knowing it’s not so serious & stuffy makes me want to give it a shot.

  2. 8This course looks like the perfect one for all your energy. I like the fact that they have five distinct types of accommodations, each with a unique essence and architectural style.

    • It really was beautiful! I was fortunate enough to be able to take my time to look at it all. I would say it was one of my top 5 favorite vacations!
