Ray Beaufils: PNG Open Recap

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….

After throwing the towel in and being adamant that I would never be back, I have decided to get back to playing professional golf 6 months later. At the time it was a decision that I had thought long and hard about as I wasn’t enjoying what it meant to be a professional golfer but I now know that you can’t put a price the simple things in life, or your overall happiness.

As is appropriate during Masters week, we have a major champion who solely benefited from a rules infraction to win such a major. In this instance, it is So Yeon Ryu who made up four strokes on leader Lexi Thompson without either player playing a single shot. Naturally, that didn’t stop Ms. Ryu from jumping in the love canal of Palm Springs to celebrate the win. I would categorize such….

Williamsport Country Club

On the road less traveled, the wandering golfer often encounters the hidden gems of courses. As the weather forecast for March 7th predicted sun and sixty degrees for central Pennsylvania, our thoughts turned to what a friend termed “a great little club” and we set forth to play Williamsport Country Club, in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. Williamsport Country Club is an A.W. Tillinghast design and is a wonderful time capsule of golden age golf….

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….

Almost inconceivably, North Carolina is an underrated golf destination despite its wide range of world class venues, the Pinehurst factor and its incredible genteel hospitality. Having traveled to North Carolina for a Spring golf trip for some twenty five years, we are still checking off courses in the state’s Top 100 list (an amazingly bold ranking for in state courses) and have yet to be disappointed. For 2012, we again….
