Peacock Gap Spotlight-Alan Kay
Nov 03, 2017
The beauty of golf is that it is never too late to learn how to play. Alan Kay, a regular at Peacock Gap, recently sat down with Professional, John Grund to discuss his love for the ageless sport.
Alan first picked up golf when he was 78, “about eight years ago,” he said with a smile on his face. He has lived in Marin for the 55 years and claims the biggest changes he has seen is there are a lot more people and cars than when he first moved here. Alan started golfing because he loves the outdoors and wanted an alternative to biking. His happiest golf moment is when he hits the ball in the center of the clubface; something we can all relate to.
When asked what he does while he’s here, he replied that he usually hits balls, chips, and putts. Once in a while he plays with his wife, Jean, or takes a lesson with “his favorite pro, John Grund,” he said smiling again. His favorite part about Peacock Gap, however, is RangeCafe and ordering pancakes on Sunday mornings.
Alan comes to Peacock Gap about four times a week on average, doing what he loves. What more can one ask for?
