Getting rid of geese on the golf course

Friday, May 16th, 2008

The “Geese Guy” is hired by course management to try to keep geese off the course. He has a golf cart, border collie and a small canoe. The two of them chase geese on water or land.


The family regathers. The baby geese dive and scatter when the dog comes near. The Geese Guy doesn’t let the dog get too close or chase the young ones too long.

Roy is a high 70’s low 80’s golfer who hits a long ball. Once a year I outdrive him.

Gator Lakes Golf Course

Saturday, March 8th, 2008

Hulburt Field Air Force Base is home of the Air Force Special Operations Command. We played the Gator Lakes Golf Course on Base last Wednesday. Played well and scored well but were disappointed that none of the many alligators that we had seen on previous visits there were around(or at least that we could see)


Just off one of the fairways was an old burned out plane (I think a C-130) that we assumed was used for fire training.


Ole Tom and Old Roy

Monday, March 3rd, 2008

Sunday was a busy day. Breakfast at Corems (have to face away from the cooking area), Church, nap, Golf (95). On the eighth hole we saw our first gators on the course this year(more later). The real excitement was on the 18th fairway. A wild Tom Turkey and his ladies were crossing the fairway in front of us. I asked John if he knew the mating call of a turkey and he said:”As a matter of fact I do”. He then proceeded to whistle some nonsense and right before our eyes the Tom Turkey got attentive, faced us and started walking towards Roy. I started to take pictures while the Tom suddenly got aggressive and tried attacking Roy who got out a club and tried to run off the Tom with his golf bag. Then the Tom decided he didn’t like his picture taken so he came after me. I traded in my camera for a golf club and started banging it on my bag. Finally, ole Tom left.


That is Roy’s leg behind his golf bag


Rained Out

Friday, February 22nd, 2008

Happy Hackers planned outing yesterday was rained out. We drove the 65 miles to Dogwood Lakes golf course before it started raining. Then it was would it or wouldn’t it and should we or shouldn’t we? When it started to come down in buckets (the same as raining cats and dogs). Anyway we went to an outlet mall on the way home and then stopped at the “Old Mexican” Restaurant for lunch.
