Friday Wrap Up: Golf and Summer in Review

Golf and Summer in Review

Let me just say that I really messed this summer thing up.  It is May 2nd and we have measurable amounts of snow here in Iowa.  We thought about packing our bags and heading to a beach, however were going to give Iowa another try at summer!

Saturday

Trisha Trixie talked to us about her childhood and growing up in the 70s.  She talked about music, the outdoors and just being overall happy.  You must read to find out the meaning of “don’t stir the ice cream!”

Sunday

We prepared beef kabobs ala summer fun!  This simple, fast recipe is great for busy weekends.

Monday

Mad Men had a focus on the shooting of MLK.  This made Trisha Trixie think about how this tragic event correlated with what occurred in Boston.  That is was okay and normal to feel the pain of those we have never met and question how something so horrible could ever happen.  “How are yousince it happened?”

Tuesday

We created a repurposed frame for the golf fanatic. This project could be done with any sport.  It is a fun twist on an old frame!

Wednesday

We looked at golf fashion throughout the ages.  It is fun to see how dress has evolved over the years to meet the needs of golfers.   Also, we had a date night in a jar to feature for May day!  Did you get any lovely May day surprises?

1894

A group of women from Morristown New Jersey Opened a seven hole golf club.  However, they made the mistake of allowing men and once one was elected president the club became a man’s only facility.

1904

The raisable skirt was introduced in golf; it had been popular with crochet players in the past.  The free stroke coat was introduced so women could freely use their arms.

1950s

The one piece dress made popular in the 50s was also popular on the golf range.  Women golfed for social interaction.  Shouldn’t women do more today, just to socialize beyond Facebook?

1960s

It was acceptable for women to wear short sleeves and bermuda shorts on the range.

Today

Women’s clubs are made about an inch shorter than men’s clubs due to the assumption that the women’s swing speed is slower than a mans.  This was not always the case. in the past, where the biggest difference might have been a girly club house.

These cute little slipcovers were found at Ladies Golf News.
