The Wonders of Wisconsin

The major golf road trip of 2017 was tabbed “The Wonders of Wisconsin” many months before we actually experienced the beauty and charms of the Badger State. We kicked off our four day tour with a blazingly hot afternoon round at Blue Mound Golf and Country Club. Despite the encroachment of the Wauwatosa sprawl and the looming Mayfair Mall on number one, it is quickly realized that Blue Mound’s Seth….

Hopefully you had a chance to read my first post about my commitment to get back into competitive golf.  It’s the only game I knew for a long time and it’s time to get back into it. Playing corporate outings and casual rounds has put a damper on my scoring and on course mentality. So I’m spending the next few weeks preparing for the West Penn Mid-Am in late August and….

Twisted Dune Golf Club – A Jersey Jem

| 11.04.2014 | 0 Comments

Twisted Dune Golf Club is a wonderful course full of little pleasures with conditions comparable or exceeding that of any private club. The biggest surprise in playing Twisted Dune is that the course feels and looks natural and the design and routing match the surrounding environment. The “Dune” does not give the impression of massive earth moving and site work upheaval despite the fact that such a large scale undertaking….

Laurel Valley Golf Club

| 06.14.2011 | 2 Comments

Laurel Valley Golf Club in Ligonier, Pennsylvania is a world class golf course with a fascinating history.  In the late 1950’s, the titans of Pittsburgh industry (in essence, the titans of industry, period) hatched the then unique notion of an exclusive golf retreat in a secluded setting easily reachable by car from downtown Pittsburgh but yet far from the real world.  The founders of Laurel Valley Golf Club were George….

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:….

We set off for Atlanta last week for a couple days of golf and music, both of which we did very well at. We even managed to fit in a visit to the Oakland Cemetery to complete our journey through Bobby Jones’ storied career by visiting his grave. Despite the deep freeze that the US experienced earlier in the week (the polar vortex), East Lake was in immaculate condition. The….

Pronghorn Resort

| 08.07.2013 | 0 Comments

Pronghorn Resort is officially listed as being located in Bend, Oregon, but it is really quite remote from any identifiable point of civilization. To illustrate, we touched down in Portland and took the road less travelled through the Columbia River Gorge (breathtaking), turned south in the town of Hood River and circled the foothills of Mt. Hood (awe-inspiring), then sliced through the high desert of central Oregon and reached the….
