The sun appears to be returning, and we find ourselves dreaming of golf course adventures as we look outside and see grass getting green again. To celebrate spring and the return of golf, we offer this rerun, originally posted on the wildly famous Western New Mexico Lunatic Fringe Golf League blog. (You can look it up. It’s still there.)

At WNMLF League practice today, golfer Joan commented, “I am very happy with almost-par.” Kudos to Joan. She had several almost-par holes today. We will refrain from embarrassing the other golfer and not refer to her performance.
And so we introduce a new guideline for WNMLF League play—if you get within one stroke of par, you are doing a pretty darn good job.
This seems like homage to another founding guideline for WNMLF: No day that includes golf can be a bad day.
We will not mention the interesting tee shot that went down the dreaded hill on #4 or the ball that was eaten by evil golf sprites on #5 never to be seen again…and a few other creative shots.
The sun is shining, the grass is beginning to green up, and golf seems more possible than it did a month ago.
Cheers. Here’s to another season on the course. See you out there.
