Golf and Kilts

Golf and Kilts

By Ann Roberts

Joseph looked at Kate and smiled. They had just come in to Scotland for the first time. They planned to celebrate their 20th anniversary here. And Joseph had gotten a trip from his company to compete in the golf tournament at La Monga club. This was a golfer's dream. It is one of the best known in the world and has been in operation since 1626.

As they looked around them at the rolling countryside, they both took a deep breath of the fresh air. They looked at each other in disbelief that anything could be so beautiful.

The limousine picked them up and they headed to the Royal Golf Hotel. They had been told this was a place that had easy access to some of the most beautiful gardens in Scotland and also to the wild and dramatic countryside. Kate was anxious to see the gardens. Although Joseph wanted to rest for the first day of the tournament the next day, he decided to humor her, as it was their anniversary.

They rented an automobile and set out for a tour of one of the nearby gardens. While enroute there they encountered a parade. Kate had always liked bagpipes and there were 100 men in kilts performing.

And then she got the thrill of her lifetime….a swift wind came up and she got a chance to prove what she had suspected all her life. What do they wear under the kilts? The photo she took was proof positive that her suspicions had been right.
