Some golf shopping in Athens

Trying the new clothes on

Trying the new clothes on

At the very first day of our Georgia tour last year, on the route to Athens from Atlanta, on the half way we saw a huge PGA superstore and noted it on our to do list on top. As a limited experienced golfers and coming from a country that do not have even a one tenth of such a huge store, you may guess how we felt like “children at Disney” and bought a trunk full of clothes, accessories and things I still do not know how to use.

We were very keen to try all we bought, but we had two little problem. One is, it was hot like hell in the beginning of July in Athens and second we did not have our clubs with us.

Of course these did not avoid us to give it a try, so we went to the University of Georgia Golf Club at a late afternoon time and rent the clubs from the club house. Unfortunately I can not say it was wonderful, because of the hot weather and the rented clubs being very old and used. So after one basket we felt like going to a cool restaurant and enjoy a fine dinner (yes…again).
