I play with my wife 5 or 6 times a year. I really enjoy it. She likes it once she gets there but I usually have to cajole her a bit to get her to go. We always play 9 holes at an easy course. We both play from the ladies tees - I play with irons-only. We don't really follow the rules .. ie, mulligans and free drops abound.
It's always a good time. I wish I could get her to go out more because she's got some natural talent . .but she never practices so she's pretty awful . .quite a bit worse than me and I'm no ace.
