Report My Girlfriend Likes Golf in Golf Talk December 30, 2019 On 12/20/2019 at 9:39 AM, NM Golf said: Good luck man, I play golf to get away from my wife. We've been married 20 years, and we spend plenty of time together without me having to take her to the golf course with me. Funny story, this past summer my buddy and I were catching an afternoon 18 and the twosome in front of us was a man and his wife (or girlfriend I don't know for sure). I don't know what he had done, but she was pissed off at him. The #6 green and #7 teebox are right next to each other and as we drove up they were walking off the box and she was giving him an ear full. I turned to my buddy and said that's why I don't play golf with my wife. The next three holes that guy was always on the opposite side of the fairway from her, I know it was on purpose. 😜 Yes it's a double-edged sword.I think the ideal would be a wife/girl-friend that SOMETIMES plays. I've seen couples that look like they always partner on the course. I think it changes the dynamic - and not in a great way.
