Employee Golf

Today I played employee golf with Stacey & Kelsey.
We played a Modified Pink Lady format. Here are the rules:
1. Each team is provided a pink ball.
2. That ball rotates among players. For example, Player A uses it on the first hole, B on the second, C on the third, D on the fourth, then back to A on the fifth and so on.
3. On each hole, the player who has the pink ball, must use their drive. Therefore, the pink ball is always chosen as the drive ball
4. The player playing the pink ball has to use that ball for their shot in the scramble (in other words, just because you have the pink ball doesn't mean you can skip hitting the ball).
5. Just like in a regular scramble, the team chooses the best shot from all four players and proceeds to finish the hole the same way.
6. The lowest scores will be taken from only those teams returning a completed score card AND their original pink ball.

Mike explains the rules & hands out the pink balls.

Here's our pink ball (photographed somewhere on the course during our first 8 holes).

We played the front nine of the Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass starting on the 7th tee. The battery in one of our golf carts died going up a hill on the way to eight. I was gonna call AAA for a tow, but luckily the drink cart girl noticed we were stranded & radioed to get us a new cart. I'm not sure what's going on in this photo, since Stacey is smiling & waving at the camera. She is normally very camera shy!

Kelsey celebrates a great putt.

Sometimes she gets a little carried away!

Everything was great until the last hole. I didn't realize that it was my turn to hit the pink ball. I hit a white ball that landed right in the middle of the fairway. Then I found out I had to hit the pink ball. I lost it in the woods on the right side of six. We were disqualified. Besides that we did pretty good, considering it was our first time playing nine holes alone. We shot par on the (par 3) fifth hole & 50 in the round. I can't believe I lost the pink ball on the last hole!!!
