Top 100 Pursuit: 15 of 100

dukesgolfI grew up with the game of golf from a very young age. I’ve played competitively from age 10 to present including AJGA events, College Golf and various amateur tournaments around the country. Since entering the real world, I’ve become a student of the game, studying golf architecture and traveling to play the best courses in the U.S. and around the world.

We hope you can benefit by interacting and commenting on our trips and insights with experiences of your own.

Ben played college golf at Duquesne University and St. Francis University, both small division one programs. Follow him on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook

Top 100 Pursuit: 48 of 100

Planning a golf trip and then the reflection upon a well executed outing are nearly as much fun as the golf itself.  I have been so fortunate to have been part of a golf family where much of our family leisure time revolved around golf.  The presumption was that the golf course was  a safe haven for a young person to hang out and develop golf and social skills to carry on for a lifetime.  I played most of my golf at Sunnehanna Country Club from seven years old to the present.  Along the way, I collected some hardware and played college golf at Rollins College [ Country Club ], but I am most proud of my two medals from the 1977 U.S. Junior.  More than anything, golf is all about special family time, comraderie with friends and travel to new and exciting venues.

The many destinations we have visited include Australia, England, Wales, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, the Bahamas and most of the States and Provinces of North America.  These trips are never about rankings ( but a Top 100 course is usually a special experience ) and ratings, but are always about heading down the road less traveled along the way.  Hopefully, we can capture the fun and spirit of our adventures.

George has checked off many of the Top 100 Courses in the US and in the World. He has been able to contribute a great deal of his experiences at top courses through ROP. His articles are always entertaining as they capture the very best about the game of golf with a focus on taking the road less traveled.

When it comes to the game of golf, I’ve been making up for lost time since 2012. Introduced to the game for the first time at age 21, I have found that my passion for traveling has met its perfect pairing with the game of golf. With my newfound passion for the game, I’ve forged ahead building lifetime friendships and visiting new destinations I would have otherwise never been able to experience. 

 

I consider myself fortunate to have a brother-in-law in Mike who shares the same passion and desire for travel and golf. We have spent countless days and nights traveling across the country and abroad chasing our next adventure. While my articles will focus primarily on my personal golf travels and experiences, my hope is to provide you with fresh perspectives and a desire to seek more from the game that we all love!  Follow Tyler on Instagram: @thetravelinggolfer

Golf has always been a part of my life.   Since I can remember I’ve always been swinging some type of club.   Whether it was rounds at the local muni growing up in Pittsburgh, camping out at Bethpage Black or touring all of Ireland.    But the game we all love really started to grow on me several years back when me and my top golfing buddy Tyler decided to take it to the next level.   Words can’t describe how wonderful this journey has been.  We’ve been very lucky to have played some magnificent courses but even more blessed to have met some remarkable people that we can now call friends.  

No matter where you live, what you do or how well you score golf is the one thing that can bring everyone together.   Can’t wait to share some of our stories and hopefully connect with some liked minded golfers such as ourselves. (IG: @micpelli & @golfjunkdrawer)
