On a cold, frosty morning in Alaska 38 teams teed off in the First American Title of Alaska 26th Annual Golf Classic. My company, CaridianBCT (formerly Gambro BCT) sponsored a hole, and I had to do my part in providing proper representation. A couple of new experiences for me on the golf course: for one, I have never been on the course at 6:30 am! (people really like to start their activities early around here!) It was still so cold and frosty....I could see my breath! Not to mention the greens were frozen, so they had to set up temporary greens....which is crazy. Why not just start at a more civilized hour? Before teeing off, a few announcements were made:
  • "Be advised of the moose that is heading toward the driving range"
  • "Be aware of the mother bear with her 3 cubs on hole 18"
  • "Oh, and be mindful of the cow and her newborn calf on hole 13"

Only in Alaska.....

Moose heading toward the driving range.

Turned out to be a beautiful day on a beautiful course.  

Feeling pretty good about my birdie on lucky hole 13!  
I know!  I couldn't believe it either!
