Your Rules Submissions — A Few Samples
I really don’t like golf, but I LOVE Scottsdale! My Rule? Drive the golf cart as much as possible and enjoy the gorgeous scenery while your husband is golfing and teaching you a new cuss word every two seconds because he does not golf well.
There are NO gimmes in golf – well, other than “gimme another beer!”
Have fun while playing by the rules. Count all your shots. But, if the game starts going bad, just add some “lubricating fluids” to help make everything better.
Rule #1: Never make tee times too early since Rule #8 will always come into play. Rule #8 usually occurs in some type of drinking establishment.
Make memories, friends, birdies, cash or just about anything else. Just do not, under any circumstances, make excuses!
Rule #1: Play golf with Brandel. Rule #2: Beat Brandel. Rule #3: Take Brandel’s money!
Rule #1: Birdies should be celebrated. So, never ever forget the Birdie juice!
Rule #1: No complaining about anything…ever…while on a golf trip to Scottsdale. Every day at work you’re paid to be annoyed. Don’t allow it to happen, because Scottsdale is the land of “complain less.” Enjoy the city, the courses, the shots and the holes. Everywhere there is poetry!
Rule: Rules? We don’t need no stinking rules! Scottsdale golf is fabulous. Dining and entertainment are superb. Just get out there and play!
Rule: Rattlers are like gators — a free drop — but, it’s good to have some snake bite medicine. Bourbon or Scotch will do!
Rule: White belts on golfers are not allowed if their Body Mass Index is greater than 24.
Rule: The only water hole you should aim for is the watering hole in the clubhouse.
Rule: Playing slow golf is ugly — Playing no golf is a sin!
Rule: Make sure your group has enough players so that if you have to roll boulders out of the way under the “loose impediment” rule…you can!
Rule: You can pick up your golf ball, but don’t try to pick up the beverage cart girl. You are the 80th obnoxious golfer of the day, and she has heard it all.
Rule: When it’s time for “last call,” it doesn’t mean using your cell phone.
Rule: If the pants you are wearing are brighter than the Scottsdale sun, then you must play from the back tees.
Rule: If you whine about the shot you just hit while it is still in the air, and it turns out to be a good shot, then you must hit a mulligan!
Rule: No tee times before 10am. There are too many Scottsdale distractions at night to play early the next morning.
Rule: Make sure your friends bring cash and the beer cart is full.
Rule: If you are playing golf in sunny Scottsdale and your friends are freezing in the snow and ice back home, always text them and send pictures so they know what they are missing!
Rule: If you hit your ball into the surrounding desert and a local critter wants to keep the ball…let it.
Rule: Whenever you visit Scottsdale, make sure that your accommodations carry The Golf Channel so you can watch Scottsdale Ambassador and Golf Channel Analyst, Brandel Chamblee.
