Says Winston Churchill about golf:

"Golf is a game whose aim is to hit a very small ball into an ever smaller hole, with weapons singularly ill-designed for the purpose."

Green Fairways

Golf balls, green fairways

Gas Carts with clubs whizzing by

Years lost in bunker

Bag of Clubs

In my bag of clubs

A driver, putter, and wedge

A note from my wife

My Strong Grip

Between my strong grip

The great one, Jack Nicklaus lives

Except, my short game sucks

Cosmic Golfing

In cosmic golfing

Aliens play without clubs

Starship handicap

Electric Cart

On electric cart

I whiz through fields of green grass

Drunk and five over par

Long Ball

Long ball swung wildly

Making a divot in turf

Penalities looming

Thanks, Lora. Miniature golf is fun. Regular golf, especially for 18 holes, would be frustrating. I’d miss the little windmills and funny obstacles.

Thank you, Nithya.

Me, too, John. It’s a skill I haven’t developed yet.

Lora Hollings on July 30, 2021:

These are very clever and entertaining haikus, Mark. The only thing funnier than these haikus is me trying to play golf. I’m not even good at miniature golf! I enjoyed them. Thanks.

I enjoyed reading these fun haikus, thank you for sharing.

Fun haikus about golf, Mark. Me attempting to play golf is even funnier.

Thanks, Brenda. That guy must be into it if he plays with Day-Glo golf balls.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on July 29, 2021:

Mark,

Great job on these Haikus.

I love these 2:

On electric cart

I whiz through fields of green grass

Drunk and five over par

In cosmic golfing

Aliens play without clubs

Starship handicap

I was talking with a guy who was headed to play night time golf.

He tells me the balls glow in the dark & it's a bit hard to see, but loads of fun.

Thank you, Kyler.

"Years lost in bunker," killed me, LMAO!

"Drunk, five over par," is way too relatable on the back nine LOL!

10/10, got two hearty chuckles out of me.
