Golf is Not Just a Man’s Game

A sneak peek to Golfing In Heels…

My Dad golfs.  So do my brother, husband, boss, and most of the men I know.  If you ask a guy why they golf, most will answer (other than the obvious: it’s a sport, and I am a guy, so of course I like it) that it’s relaxing, fun and an enjoyable activity to do with friends.  I think men are onto something here.  How many women do you know participate regularly in activities that are relaxing, fun and enjoyable to do with friends?  None come to the top of my mind.

What activity do you know of that takes the better part of a day, is encouraged by your employer, may lead to new opportunities, provides socialization, is conducted in (mostly) beautiful weather, and is exercise?  I don’t think a trip to the mall qualifies, unless you are a professional shopper.  Ladies, we need to take advantage of an activity that our male counterparts have known about for years.

Men have dominated the sports profession since the beginning of time.  If your weekends look anything like mine, then you are notified of the seasons changing not by the weather, but by what sport is playing on television.  From the crowd roaring football games, to the buzzing of race cars zooming around the track, they merge right into each other.  I do know a few ladies who enjoy a good sporting event, but don’t plan their work, travel and leisure schedules around them.

Why Women Should Get Into the Game

We hurry everywhere.  We hurry to get the kids off to school, we hurry to work, and we hurry home to make dinner.  When you do find that unexpected moment of calm, do you know what to do with yourself?  Do you ever plan for some down time?

Fire Up the Presses


Just under a year ago, I embarked on an adventure.  I started writing a book.  This blog has helped me to get the writing juices flowing, and I am happy to say that my work is complete.  Golfing In Heels is off to the publisher, and will be bound and ready for sale in the coming months.  Writing has given me an outlet to express myself, and to share with others my perspective on life a little bit at a time.

I am sharing with you a photo of me writing this book last summer during a trip to Mexico.  I must admit, writing this book was hard work.  I went through phases where the words just poured out, and then went several weeks without touching the computer.  If you are embarking upon the same challenge (writing a book, a blog, or writing anything at all) don’t get discouraged when the words don’t come to you automatically.  In fact, during my Mexico trip, I didn’t touch the computer for the first few days.  Then, the words just bubbled up and onto the page they went.

Over the coming weeks I’ll provide you with a taste of Golfing In Heels and hope to get your feedback as it becomes bookshelf ready. So, fire up those presses!
