Maserati at the Ocala Golf Course
The Ocala Golf Club is a municipal golf course and, in my opinion, one of the nicest courses in the Ocala area, excluding the exclusive private golf clubs.
The first shot is of the fifth hole, a par three over water.
One sees a variety of vehicles in the parking lot on any given day. Usually there is a selection of sedans and SUVs and some pickup trucks. A few of the sedans and SUVs are of the "luxury" class.
But I've never seen a Maserati in the parking lot before. Yet, there it was, parked in a slot just like all the regular cars.
I don't know much about Maseratis, other than they are very expensive and usually driven by rich people. When I asked about this car, I was told it probably cost between $100,000 and $150,000.
I liked it, but would be afraid to drive it on local highways and byways.
[The Ocala Golf Course is managed by Billy Casper Golf, an organization that operates over 140 courses around the world. Billy Casper was a prolific American golfer, winning 51 PGA tournaments (ranked 7th all-time). He was most active in the 60s and 70s.
Casper died of a heart attack in 2015. He is survived by his wife of 60 years. In his 30s he joined the Mormon church and took seriously the charge given to Adam and Eve in the creation story to populate the earth - he had 11 children and 71 grandchildren!]
