Video Script

Hi, I'm Randall, and golf is a popular sport here in Utah, and uh, golf courses fill up on the weekends. Near my house is a beautiful course, and it includes a driving range and 18 holes of golf. For nine holes, it's only fourteen dollars ($14), and add eight dollars ($8), and you get a golf cart along with it.

Uh, for 18 holes, that is forty-one ($41) dollars, and uh, they also, at the golf course, have a reception area, so you could play golf and get married and . . . on the same day.

So, enjoy golf wherever you are.
