I’m travelling from Australia to San Francisco and Las Vegas in September on business and will be able to swing 3 days (Fri/Sat/Sun) in between to go play golf as a single (although may get a mate from Canada to join me). I’m a member of a private club in Sydney and play off of 3 but have zero contacts in the US so with the way clubs operate in the US I’ll need to go down the public access route. I have already played Pebble, Spy Glass and Pasatiempo about 20 years ago so think I’ll need to go further afield. Getting to and from Bandon seems to be a mare with the limited time I have so initial thoughts were to either fly to Chicago and loop round Erin Hills, Whistling Straights, Blackwolf Run and Lawsonia or fly to Raleigh and do Pinehurst and Tobacco Rd. Plan to finish off with Shadow Creek if I can although it will be overseeded so not sure what that will be like. Any advice welcome, I feel like I’m probably missing something easier in the west coast but keen to play some top/unique courses while I’m there and this seems the easiest way.
