Your missing out on some cool charts...
Dave and Michele Brown a.k.a. cshel65
(Linked above is Michele's account since she is the one who reached out to me! You can check out Dave's page HERE.)
How old are you and what's your occupation?
Dave is 52 and does internet sales from home.
Michele is 45 and runs the accounting department for an orthopaedic office.
When did you start playing golf and what's your handicap?
Dave started playing in 1996 but post 9/11 had stopped playing.
In 2008 Dave asked Michele if she would learn to play golf with him and she said yes. In January 2009 – Dave and Michele moved into Hedingham Golf Community. This is where the amazing adventure began. Within two months Michele bought a set of ladies clubs and we joined as Platinum Members. We get to play all the golf we can – on 3 different courses – including carts and range balls for our entire family of three – all for one very low, low monthly charge. Dave now has a handicap of 10 and Michele’s is 23.
How often do you play?
At least 3-4 times per week – maybe more.
Tell me about a great shot you've made.
Dave – Last season I had a short drive on No 2 and was left with a 260 yard second short to the green. I chose to lay up with my 3 iron with the hope of getting up and down. When I got a fantastic kick off the back of the fairway bunker which propelled the ball straight onto the green and into the cup! Eagle!
Michele – It was the first night of the new Ladies League and we were playing super ball. My foursome was at the 150 yard marker on Hedingham No 3.
I hit my 7 iron nice and clean. When we got to the green – we couldn’t find my ball. I had holed out for an eagle!
What is your best golf memory?
Mother’s Day 2009. While everyone else was standing in line at the Golden Corral – Michele’s choice was to play golf with Dave. It seemed as if we were the only people on the course. We played our round in 2.5 hours and a wonderful time was had by all.

What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
Dave – Short game is where you win.
Michele – I drive it well and my putting and chipping are improving but I need to work on my approach shots.
Tell me a story.
This past weekend was the best. Michele was able to get off work early on Friday so we played 18 holes at Hedingham. Saturday we drove to Riverwood in Clayton where they have 3 nines. We played all 3 courses for 27 holes. Sunday we drove to the third course in our package – Eagle Ridge which is just outside of Garner, NC. There we played 18 and met some very nice people who live and play there. Since Monday was a holiday – we stayed here in our neighborhood and played 18 with another twosome. The course wasn’t busy so after a short stop at the clubhouse we went out for a second round – just the two of us – and finished in less than 3 hours. That was 5.5 rounds – 99 holes - in a golf-a-holics paradise!
