Golf: My original passion and now 5th priority

Now six years out of college, I’ve established my presence in the real world as I continue to pursue my career in Corporate America. Prior to entering the cubicle farm, golf was my job as I competed on a D-I AA golf team. I was lucky to be introduced to the game at a young age and played competitively before I even knew how to tally up my score. It’s….

The Old Course at St. Andrews

The Old Course at St. Andrews is a course we all aspire to play at least once in our lifetime. I always knew I’d take the trip someday, and that day came when a business trip to London was put on my calendar in early April. Immediately, I decided I’d look into traveling to Scotland in hopes of playing the Old Course. Our plans were sealed a few weeks before playing:….

I have played in some amazing destinations but once landing in Papua New Guinea, its understandable to have mixed emotions. One side you’re a little concerned about the unknown (your safety) the other is letting yourself settle into the untouched by our modern privileges that we all take for granted. The jump across the pacific was far from smooth sailing. Landing in the capital (Port Moresby) at 1:30pm on Monday….

Stonewall Golf Club

Despite the rather commonly used name of Stonewall Golf Club, there are very few golf clubs (not a country club, to be sure) in the world that have managed to get every aspect of the golfing experience absolutely as right as has Stonewall Golf Club in Elverson, PA. Stonewall exudes understated elegance. The club entrance is subtle, the entrance drive pastoral, the clubhouse and associated outbuildings authentic stonybatter construction. As….

Canyata Golf Club

| 10.07.2013 | 0 Comments

Without question, Canyata Golf Club was the most incredible days of golf I’ve ever had. It’s almost impossible to explain the unique experience. Nothing could have prepared me for Canyata. First of all, nobody knows anything about it, and nobody knows where it is. There are no members. There are no people. There is no golf staff. There is no professional. There are no shoes allowed indoors. There’s a locker….
