Golf, Family & BBQ

Last Memorial Day weekend, my family (parents + brothers) drove up from Los Angeles to spend time with me and Chris! Our weekend was filled with golf, barbecue and spending time together.

In case you didn’t know, I grew up in a golfing family – my dad has golfed since he was twelve; so have I. My brothers are currently in their high school’s golf team, with one acting as the team captain. Although playing on and off, golf is the only sport I really know how to play without even trying too hard. Chris, on the other hand, has been trying his hardest to learn golf so we can someday religiously golf on the weekends.

My family arrived on a Saturday afternoon and we immediately went to grab lunch at a Vietnamese restaurant. After lunch, we packed up our golf bags and headed off to the nine-hole par 3 golf course in Exeter. While the course was short, it was tricky – especially since the green wasn’t well-maintained which made it harder to estimate how strong or how slow to putt the ball in.

My dad (in orange) opted to get golf carts due to the heat – we were there from 3-5pm. I actually was surprised at how decent I played considering it’s been two years since I’ve been at the golf course/driving range. In the words of my dad, “golf is something you carry with you forever.” True that, dad.

After the game, we headed back to our place and got the grill ready for some barbecue fun! Chris and I recently bought a grill before my parents came over so this was our first time using it! Needless to say, the grill was amazing. So amazing that I ended up buying one for my parents for their house.

It was a weekend spent well with people close to my heart. We saw some rain on Sunday so we pretty much stayed indoors. My parents and brothers left around six in the evening after the rain had calmed down. Can’t wait until the next time we golf and pop this grill out!

    Aww, your family is sweet for coming up to see you two! I love that all of you are golfers, hehe. Even I don’t know how to golf and it looks hard!! Maybe you should take me one of these days, hehe (jk, I have a long way to learn to get to your level haha). The course looks super neat. It is so cool that you and Chis have your own grill! #AdultingGoals haha. Glad all of you had some fun :)! Have a great week!! ♥♥♥

    This sounds like a wonderful weekend! Time spent with family is always the best. And that’s great that you all have a sport you like to do together! I’ve only ever played mini golf haha.

    Weekends are always great when spent with family and good friends. It’s nice to know you had a nice time! I’ve only tried the golf driving range once and I can’t do it. Golf is such a hard sport for me with the posture, alignment, aim and not to mention the weight of those different gold clubs. Hahaha! But glad to know you’re still great at this sport! x

    Sounds like it was well spent indeed. I’ve been wanting to learn how to golf for ages now. It never really appealed to me. I didn’t grow up with golf but something about it seems like would be a great social bonding experience with friends or family.

    This look like a great golf weekend! You guys are luck on the west coast as you do not have to deal with humidity. I lived in Seattle for a decade and I remember when I first moved there how blown away I was with how little humidity there was in the summer. It is awful here.

    Oh I love a good BBQ! I’m glad you had such a good time with your family. J took me golfing ages ago and I had so much fun putting (I think that’s what it’s called) – I’d love to go again!

    I bet your family is really good at golfing and that you’ve got some pros in the family. Family time is great with golfing and barbecues. That is a great way to enjoy the summer.

    Post-golf grilling sounds awesome and well deserved! I used to golf like ten years ago but I think I would be terrible if I tried again today haha. Nice article and I hope you enjoy more golf & grill days soon!
