One aspect of living in Guizhou is returning to the USA periodically for a “fix” of American culture. I have returned to the USA for three months to get cataract surgery, physical thearapy for my back and to golf. I am happy to report that the first eye is done and in “perfect” condition; the back is healthy again; and I am playing golf at a fraction of the cost of a China round of golf. Eighteen holes in the USA is between 25 and 40 dollars. China, Guiyang, costs about 200 USD.
Below are a few photos of the course I played at in Northern Michigan, just outside of my home town, Traverse City. My old friend Gerry, who came to visit me in China a few years ago played golf with me in Guiyang. He brought his Grandson Nick, and a foreign friend from the Neatherlands (Koss). The four of us played 18. A fine time was had by all.
