Cart Girl of the Month: August/September 2014

Maria Barrios
Augusta Pines Golf Club

Hometown: Tomball, Texas

Most outstanding thing that has happened to you: Getting to dance and represent the best team in the NBA, the Houston Rockets.

Biggest celebrities that you’ve met: Usher, Joanna Krupa, Dwight Howard and my favorite, Hakeem “The Dream” Olajuwon.

Place you want to visit: It’s a strong tie between Istanbul and Ibiza.

Favorite music: Old school R&B soul music. You can’t go wrong with The Temptations, Al Green and Otis Redding.

Turn-ons: Great teeth, intelligence, wit and a job.

Turn-offs: Bad teeth, too much self-admiration, and a man who is politically unaware.

Fantasy person to date: Bill Rancic. He’s handsome, a successful investor, politically involved and family-oriented. I might even look past the fact that he’s a Chicago Bulls fan.

The best ways to impress you are: Challenge me and make me laugh. It is rare that I find a man who keeps me on my toes.

Your biggest inspiration: My parents. They are 100 percent self-made, my support team and the reason for all of my triumphs.

Interests: Dance, music, basketball and animals.

The best part about working at Augusta Pines: The members. They create a home and family-like atmosphere.

Worst pick-up line: “On a scale of one to America, how free are you tonight?”
