  1. I "stole" this from The Golf Vacation Insider email today and wanted to share it with you...... I have a confession to make: I steal ball markers, tees, and divot tools from the golf courses I play. And I'm guessing you have done this at least once, too. I'm going to tell you my reason, and then I'd love to hear yours. Of course, “steal” probably isn't the right word, because I'm talking about the stuff golf courses and resorts offer on the pro shop counter or outside the starter's shack. Again, pencils, tees, ball makers, divot tools…the kind of stuff they WANT you to take. I only take one or two…but I always take them IF they include the course's name or logo. No, I'm a collector. Not of “stuff,” anyway. But of happy golf trip memories; and these freebies are great at triggering them long after you return home. Want to get a nice dose of happiness when you least expect it? Just throw these things in your golf bag and forget about them. The next time you're fishing around for a ball marker or divot tool, you'll randomly pull out one of these mementos…and smile. You can do the same when you stay at “special” resorts or hotels. For example, take home your little bottles of shampoo and mini soaps and you'll be reminded of your stay when you're in your own shower. Or you could take your room's keycard and use it as a bookmark (people still read physical books, right?). Or sign up for the email newsletter; whether you read it or not, you'll be reminded of your stay each time it arrives in you inbox. If you fly, don't take the baggage stickers off your luggage when you get home; instead leave them on. The next time you pull out those bags, you'll be reminded of your last destination. I know all this sounds corny, but these “happiness triggers” really do work in my experience. Do you do anything like this to trigger fond memories of your golf trips long after they're over? Last week while vacationing at Hilton Head Island, I took the scoring pencil from Port Royal and Shipyard courses. They had their names embossed and had erasers.....love erasers on golf pencils....
