Two golf widows tee off their business partnership with the purchase of a pro shop, but despite their style and savvy, scoring with the eccentric country club clientele may prove more of a hazard than they bargained for.
With their husbands lost to the links, their kids headed to college, and plenty of time and money on their hands, Jen and Sandra decide to fulfill — well, if not the dream of a lifetime, at least the dream of one boozy night: They buy the pro shop at their husbands’ golf club. With little know-how and less to lose, they set out to build a fashion-forward business while keeping an eye on the green… and the green.
Meet The Main Characters
JEN PRESTON, 44, is an affluent, white suburban housewife. Joyful and warm, Jen loves to laugh, loves a challenge, and loves having fun. People like her, and she likes people. She also likes herself. (No shrink needed here.) Jen met and married Steve, a widower 15 years her senior, in a whirlwind courtship when she was 25. He already had 2 grown children when they met. Their daughter Jocelyn was born only a year after they married. Jocelyn recently graduated from high school and is on her way to study at Bryn Mawr.
Jen and Steve have quiet understandings. Among them is this quid pro quo: Steve readies himself for retirement from his high stress corporate job by playing as much golf as possible. In return, he happily – and easily – funds any ventures, hobbies, or interests Jen develops with his ample 7-figure earnings.
SANDRA DOWNING, 47, (pronounced san-dra) is an affluent, black suburban housewife. While she also loves to laugh, she is more guarded around new people than Jen. Nothing gets past Sandra; she is intensely present, sharp as a tack, and the product of a fine education. While Jen married into her wealth, Sandra earned hers, working with Earl, her husband of 25 years, to build a limousine company from the one car he drove himself to the multimillion dollar business it is today. The tough times are far in the past, but their memory lives in Sandra’s bones.
Sandra and Earl have twins, a boy and a girl they named after themselves, although the younger Sandra prefers “sahn-dra” and Earl likes to be called Tiger. The twins attended the same tony private school as Jocelyn – in fact, that is where Sandra and Jen first met – and, like her, have just graduated and are college bound.
