Where’s the green?


As the story goes…an elderly, die-hard golfer from Fosters passes away from this old world and finds himself at the pearly gates. St. Peter unfolds the Book of Life and tells the old golfer that he has lived an exemplary life and can enter. Of course, the first question the man asks St. Peter is, “Where is the golf course?”

“I’m terribly sorry,” replies St. Peter, “but that’s one thing we don’t have here.”

The golfer is quite unhappy and decides that he will see if he can swing a better deal in hell. On the road to hell, he is greeted by the devil, who has already heard of the golfer’s unpleasant rejection of heaven. “This way, sir,” says the devil, “the finest tournament-quality 18 holes you are likely to find this side of Augusta, Georgia.”

The golfer looks around and agrees that it is the finest course he has ever seen. He decides he’d rather spend eternity there than in heaven, so he signs up for the full package. “So,” he says to the devil, “why don’t you go get me some clubs and balls and I’ll have the game of my after-life.”

The devil responds “I’m sorry, sir, we don’t have any.”

“What?” says the man. “No balls or clubs for a fine course like this?”

“No, sir,” says the devil, “that’s the hell part of it.”

Just a little golf humor to remind you to reserve your spot in the Swinging for AHF Golf Tournament. It will be held Thursday, November 5, at the Pine Tree Country Club. Hosted by the Birmingham Lions Club, the tournament proceeds will benefit the Lions Club Sight Charities and the Alabama Humanities Foundation.
