Learning to Love Your Guy’s Golf Habit
I used to refer to myself as a Golf Widow, complaining constantly about what a burden it was for me to have my husband at the golf course for 20 hours a week. But after all of my hemming and hawing, he finally said “Just try it, you’ll like it.”
So I tried it. And I LOVED it! I’ve shifted gears from hating golf to learning to love and embrace it. In fact, I finally realize how much easier some things are because of his golf habit.
Gift Buying is a No-Brainer
Golf Equipment can range in price points. If I need to buy a big gift- I can go for the more expensive stuff like a new driver or set of clubs. If it’s a smaller gift I need, I can get him some new balls and tees or a Golf Pass that gives him access to other courses in the area.
Its a Fun Date Night
Suddenly the golf range is my favorite place to be on a nice evening. We laugh, we hit stuff and sometimes, we get ice cream afterwards. Win-Win!
It Keeps Him Active
Sure, there are other ways to get active but walking 18 holes on a mixed terrain really does his heart good. I don’t worry about him getting out of shape because he knows how much it would impact his golf game if he let himself go.
It Keeps Him Social
If all he had going on was work and home, he’d have very little to talk about. A day out with his golf buddies negates any awful thing that may have happened at work that week- making dinner conversation a lot more tolerable, waking up a lot more pleasant, and idle threats of becoming a stay-at-home dad far and few between.
It Gives ME Free Time
Maybe I’ll spend the Saturday at the beach, or roaming the aisles of Target or vegging out with a Kardashian marathon. Whatever I want to do, I know that I have two whole days to do it.
