It’s the end of July and doubt is setting in. Though I am confident that I will, someday, break 100, and even better for that matter, I’m losing hope that this is my year. I think there’s two main factors in this realization… time and LOT.

Winter Getaway 2011 - Rollin' Cajun Style

Winters in Wisconsin can be brutal. And the 2010-2011 winter has given us plenty of “oh man, more snow?!?” moments. Seriously, shoveling snow is so fun when you have to throw it above your head to get it over the snow bank. However, every time the snow starts piling up, my thoughts turn to the annual golf trip I take with some fellow golf professionals. A long car ride followed by multiple rounds of golf and good food warms me up every time.
Each year we pick a different destination. Past sites have included: Amelia Island (FL), Jackson (MS), Austin (TX), and St. Louis (MO). This year we set our sights on the Crescent City – New Orleans (LA). Average February temps are in the mid 60’s, golf courses are abundant, and, most importantly, the food available in the Big Easy is world famous.
The 2011 expedition included a two night stay in downtown “Nawlins” and three days of golf (visiting 4 different courses and playing 5 rounds of golf). Without going into too many details (gag orders from Louisiana courts carry stiff penalties – but that’s another story), I can honestly say this was the best winter getaway trip we’ve had. The combination of the golf course layouts, hospitality of the local people, night life, and variety of incredible food make New Orleans a true winter golf destination (even with frost delays on two mornings – yes we had to bring a little of Wisconsin with us).
Before I end this article, I must admit that each golf trip we go on is also an educational experience, and the New Orleans trip was no exception. We all learn a little about the city we visit and the people in the area. Additionally, we learn how much rust has built up on the old golf game in the last few months (this can be one painful lesson). I can’t speak for the other guys, but I felt like the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz – I needed oil and a lot of it! For posterity reasons (and because I like to see my own words in print), I wrote down some of the “lessons” I learned on our trip.
