Named “Best New Product” at the 2012 PGA Merchandise show, Crocs Golf with Hank Haney shoes might just be the lightest, most comfortable golf shoes in their class.

All Crocs™ Golf with Hank Haney shoes styles were designed with the busy casual golfer in mind: a shoe that can be worn all day long. A technically engineered design that’s versatile enough to go from tee to green — to clubhouse to home.

From the range to the clubhouse, the collection features a variety of styles for both men and women.”

“The Crocs Golf collection is a natural brand extension for Crocs as it offers a casual alternative to the traditional golf shoe,” said Dale Bathum, senior vice president of product development for Crocs. “They still provide all of the same technical engineering, but with the comfort and innovative design consumers have come to expect from Crocs footwear. The launch of this new line continues to showcase the depth and breadth of our styles. Currently, we offer more than 250 styles of Crocs shoes, ranging from the original clog-style shoe to wedges, flats, boots and, now golf shoes.”

Holla! VIP!

Since Teddy became addicted to Frisbee Golf aka “Frolf” he has gone through a couple pairs of his trusty Athens sandals.

This means we get to hit the Crocs Outlet in Aurora together! I don’t usually bring Teddy because I could easily spend an hour or two in that store trying on the new styles and chatting with the fun employees!

On this rainy weekend day, I thought I would test my “VIP” status. The outlet mall is a zoo on the weekends near back to school. I drove around and around looking for a spot. All we needed was one pair of Athens for Teddy. A quick stop! The rain became a downpour. AND we had baby Tanner with us. This is a topic for another day, but…how DO you transport an infant in a car seat or stroller in the rain?

I called the store and asked for the manager Scott. He yelled out, “HEY Kat! I saw you driving around the parking lot! How are you?” Being a realtor I have magnets on my car with my name on them…I am hard to miss. I told Scott we couldn’t find a single parking spot in the lot and had Tanner with us….and could we please park briefly at their back door, run in and run out? YES! Scott rocks. He even came out with an umbrella for us!

Scott and Hope....they rock!

To avoid being towed or placed on the Bad Boy List like Scott is on we scrambled to find Teddy’s size and headed out. Hope and the rest of the sales team were awesome as always….thanks for making me feel “VIP”!

Frisbee Golf is FREE!

My husband’s new obsession is Frisbee Golf. Have you played it? Or do you wonder what those crazy-looking metal baskets are in your local park? Do you “Frolf”?

Ted approaching the 8th "hole"

Ted and I love to be outside…A regular round of golf can take HOURS. 18 holes of Frisbee Golf can be done in under an hour.

I am able to come along with Tanner in tow and watch Ted and his pals play. They are really good and pretty competitive. The discs are something special…they are not regular frisbees. You CAN use a regular frisbee, but leave it to the fans of Frisbee Golf to create their own tools.

Teddy “blew out” his Athens flip flops at his last outing…that means I get to see Hope, Scott and the smiling crew at the Crocs Aurora Outlet store very soon!
