Where Is Your Next Golf Trip Going to Be?


Recommended Posts

Two things that are undeniably awesome in life are travel and golf. I've traveled plenty during my life so far and this last year enjoyed my first full season of golf. I was fortunate enough to score two free tickets anywhere Alaska Airlines flys, so a buddy and I went to Palm Springs for a weekend. It was such an awesome trip that immediately after it was over I was thinking about the next one. We are going to keep it in state this year and just head over to Seattle for a long weekend of awesomeness. Where is your next trip going to take you?

I'm resuming my 50 state capital road trip on June 10, 2018. I'm planning to play in 25 capitals plus Washington DC. The list has the courses I plan to play and the order, weather permitting. 

Going to the Pinehurst area at the end of March. Playing Mid-South, Pine Needles, and Tobacco Road.

My goals are to return to Hilton Head and to go to Ponte Vedra along with a visit to the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine. As I have posted on other threads, I was fortunate enough to go to th

My goals are to return to Hilton Head and to go to Ponte Vedra along with a visit to the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine. As I have posted on other threads, I was fortunate enough to go to the Sea Pines Plantation in 1989 and 1992, but we were not able to play Harbour Town. As to St. Augustine, I agree with the Black Knight-"For the LOVE OF GOLF, YOU must go"-to the Hall of Fame!

In about 10 days I'll be headed to Palm Springs for a week.  After that, I have two weeks in Ireland planned for June, and our normal Thanksgiving week in Pinehurst.  Looks like a good year!

We are pretty much settled in for the winter. We just returned from Mexico after a 2 week stay. Got some golf and fishing in while down there. 

Our next road trip will most likely be our trip up into the northwest to visit some friends. Main golf stop will be in Bandon , Oregon. What routes we take to get there is anyone's guess. My wife navigates these trips. 

Long range plan is our annual trip to Death Valley in August. About 10 of us meet their every year for yearly golfing sun burns.

I'll be in SF and Tucson in a week. Hope to get at least a round or two in each city. 

Seeing that CO is covered in snow, no golf here for a while.

I will be in North Padre Island, TX in May for a week.  Plans are to fish twice and play golf 3 times...Not sure yet what courses are available in the Corpus Christi area, but I am sure I will be able to find some...

My next trip is to Coorg (approximately 250 km from Bangalore), which is coffee growing district and is a hill station, and which is also where we have a coffee estate.  This is second weekend of April for a golf tournament (The Coorg Family Cup).  Currently a lot of my travel for golf is mostly for tournaments due to work and family not giving me much time for long trips.

Enjoy!

In 10 days I will start my 50-state-50-capital golf trip! First course, Raven golf club in Phoenix, Az.

That sounds like a blast!  I know others have said this, but please keep in touch as you travel.  I'll bet you'll find playing partners from TST all along the way.

Being a man of modest means and cheap tendencies, we have one vacation per year and its always the Outer Banks. This year, it's looking like early September, That ought to at least get us out of peak season, so three rounds or so will be in the offing. Carolina Club and the Pointe have always been good for us. May give Nags Head a shot this time.

I'm heading to St. Petersburg, FL during the third week of May. Staying out at John's Pass. Mainly going to visit family and do some snook fishing, but I will likely ship the clubs down and try the course @vangatorsuggested - Mangrove Bay. There's also a par 3 in Dunedin that looks nice. Might even try Twin Brooks down on the south side of town if I have time.

First day back in the office after returning yesterday from Pinehurst NC...that yearly pilgrimage never disappoints!! Did winter / early spring trips this year to Pinehurst (father son trip), Miami, Jamaica and Pinehurst again(golf and drinking buddies trip) - now it is home for the rest of the golf season and start getting groups together for next winter.

Thinking Palm Springs over Christmas for epic family vacation with son being Senior year of HS, Vegas because well it is Vegas, Tampa (clients) and of course Pinehurst right around now just like every year!!

    • Billy, no, but there are sometimes snakes, although Ihaven't seen any personally but I've seen LOTS Of twisted sticks on the ground that have scared the crap out of me -- i don't know if that counts or not?  Also, there is a bat tree on the front nine in Lusaka, it is a huge tree and has enormous bats in it for half the year (then they migrate). So, that's cool!  
    • The above post is almost 13 years old.  I've now played in 48 states (all but Alaska and Hawaii) and 13 countries. Total number of courses played exceeds 750. My wife no longer thinks the golf ball collection from courses played is a good hobby.
    • So maybe I give the whetstone a try before getting Scott’s flux capacitor Ken Onion sharpener?
    • Any lions on the course? I have never visited Zambia, just see nature shows about the country, but have been to SA, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Kenya, and Tanzania, on safaris. Zambia sounds like a good safari destination.
    • My wife convinced me to buy some Cutco knives.   They will actually come to the house to sharpen our knives for the life of the knives.   They weren't cheap but work extremely well.
