Golf Camp!

We signed Caleb up for Golf Camp this year at Sand Hallow Golf Course.

Technically you have to be 8 but it helps when you are friends with the Golf pro at the course. I wasn't sure how Caleb would feel about golf. He was really excited because both Great Grandpa Henderson and Grandpa Larry are big golfers and he wants to be like them. On the other hand golf takes a little more discipline than Caleb likes to exhibit.

Everyday he would come home and say, "I just love golf so so much."

On Saturday they had a tournament and being the dorky Mom I am showed up to take pictures. I ended up staying to the whole tournament and had the best time. (Good enough that I want to start golfing again)

Caleb did so good. He was remarkably accurate for 7 year old. He got even more so when I told him to find the flag and line the shot up first :) They had obviously been doing most of their time before this on the driving range!

One of the things I was most impressed with was his manner on the golf course. He acted more like a gentleman and played politely and with a lot of discipline. I was wondering how he would do golfing in a few weeks with my Dad but I know he will do great. He was amazing and I am so proud of him not only learning how to hit the ball but also trying to adhere to the etiquette of the game.

We got him 3 of his own clubs (ugh golf is expensive)! He has a driver, a 7 iron, and a putter and loves having his own clubs. He collects tees, has 8 golf balls, and thinks his world is now complete that he has a golf bag. Oh, and he thinks golf carts are the ideal wheels for any boy :)

His little golfing group.

I think the future looks pretty bright for this little golfer!
