My travels brought me to Savanna Georgia. I’ll be honest after all the courses I have visited recently and with Tobacco Road still left on the trip, I was having trouble getting up for the round especially when I was sitting in traffic going to Bacon Park. The course itself was designed by Donald Ross… Continue reading Bacon Park
Wow, I have seen some impressive clubhouses on this trip, but driving up it is a very impressive and daunting at the same time. TPC Sawgrass opened in 1980 and is the flagship of all the TPC network. In 1978 the PGA Tour bought the 415 acre track and built the TPC Sawgrass. The two… Continue reading Dye’s Valley TPC Sawgrass
The day has finally arrived, I’m playing the Stadium Course, home to Tiger’s “better than most putt” and a host of other big time shots by Tour pros. From the yardage book “Every hole on Pete Dye’s masterpiece demands precision and commitment, none more so than the most recognized hole in golf and the defining… Continue reading TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course
So my travels brought me to Kiawah Island. Wait didn’t you just go there? Yes, but I didn’t get to play Cougar Point. The course is right at the beginning of the resort property so you see it as you drive in. It looked so amazing, so green! Very different than Pinehurst in looks and… Continue reading Cougar Point
My last day at Pinehurst, with the rain I switched around the rounds and was playing No. 4. The course has a rolling topography and natural ridge lines with exposed sand areas, huge cross bunkers and the native wire grass blend. Designer Gil Hanse says “No. 4 is a companion in the landscape, but it… Continue reading Pinehurst No.4
When you call the Pinehurst Resort they answer by saying “another beautiful day in PInehurst”. Well as much as yesterday was a washout today was the exact opposite of that. Some clouds in the sky, a bit of a breeze and temperatures in the low 70’s, a perfect day to tackle the crown jewel of… Continue reading Pinehurst No. 2
I got down to the Pinehurst area in pretty good time on my drive, so I decided to head into the pro shop to look around. I could have spent a long time looking at all the memorabilia on the walls, so much history in these halls. After walking around the pro shop, I heard… Continue reading Pinehurst #3
There are some courses that bill themselves as a resort style course, this is one of them and Rum Pointe does not disappoint. After the long twisty tree lined road to get to the entrance, you make the turn into a semi private drive up to the course. As you are driving up you have… Continue reading Rum Pointe
Another day, another round of golf. Today I found myself at Eagles Landing, which runs along the bay and has a lot of marsh land that comes into play. The clubhouse is a bit smaller but they have a nice little restaurant inside. There is a chipping and a practice bunker but no full driving… Continue reading Eagles Landing
Over the past two days I got the chance to play the two different courses at Ocean City Golf Course. The Seaside course which was built in the fifties, then came the Newport Bay course. On both days the course was pretty busy. The course has a driving range, putting green, well stocked clubhouse and… Continue reading Ocean City Golf Course
