I think the last time I played golf was in the early 1990s with George. I have no idea what possessed us to go golfing — we were spending the summer in our university town, Kingston — but a group of us decided to hit the greens. One particular moment I remember was when George was hidden behind a clump of trees. I heard a scream of frustration from his direction, followed by a couple of flying golf clubs.
Come to think of it, it’s been ages since I’ve even played video golf. The last time must’ve been around 1999, when Adam and I were partners in an indie software development company and working out of his living room. We played Hot Shots Golf on his PlayStation 1 when taking a break from developing these applications.
All this changes today at 2:30 p.m.. That’s the tee-off time for the Tucows Sales and Marketing company-bonding golf-a-rama at Remington Parkview Golf and Country Club. As Technical Evangelist, I’m part of the Marketing team and therefore have been invited to this event; while I’m not a golfing type of guy, I’m not going to pass up a company-sanctioned afternoon in the great outdoors and a free dinner, especially on a cloudless and cool day like today.
If I can keep my score below 500, I’ll be happy.
(Yes, I’ll take photos.)
