I love Valentine’s Day, especially this year, since it falls on the Saturday that I’m posting this golf blog. Love and golf seem to go hand and glove, whether it’s the game itself or that special one you’re golfing with. With that, here are several love/golf quotes to share with your significant other over a glass of wine this evening. Happy Valentine’s Day!
