WHO ARE THE TEEBIRDS?
TeeBirds are retired Illinois State University faculty or staff members (or their spouses/significant others of retirees) who meet on Thursday mornings for 9 holes of golf.  

The group’s home course is our own D. A. Weibring links at Illinois State University, along with a good sprinkling of area courses to give us variety.  Weekly play alternates between individual scoring and various scrambles, shambles, and other group formats.

Like to play 18?   Several players opt to go the second nine!

Annual membership dues are $15  for weekly prizes and support of social activities—the group has monthly lunches or coffees.

Here’s to a great 2024 season!

GOLF TIDBITS

Over fifty years have passed,
Tho’ it seems like just the other day;
My father gave me golf clubs,
“It’s a game you need to learn to play.”

He said, “It’s very difficult, but so is life.
There’s more to learn than grip and swing and rules,
Like honesty and dealing with adversity;
Then, pointing to his head, “… and how to use ALL your tools.

Play the Course… and Mother Nature…
Focus on just one shot at a time;
Try to learn from each of your mistakes;
Then, do your best to leave them behind.

These clubs will teach you more
Than our ‘man to man’ talks.
This you'll learn for yourself,
So you can “walk the walk.”

“Practice makes better, but not perfect.
And always remember what they say:
‘”Golf is not a game that we can win.
It’s just a game we play.’”

His lessons served me very well,
Took them to heart and play the game.
And life is much like a round of golf.
Despite the bad shots, I’m always glad I came.
