My Goal: To play, photograph and review the best golf courses in the nation. In my “Course Reviews” section I have dozens of unbelievable golf courses reviewed, and I want to expand that to make my site the preeminent destination for other golf addicts who want to see what to expect from our country’s highest rated tracks.
I am motivated by “Experiences” – I need things to look forward to, and love the conversations, and sometimes the debates that come along with them.
Why is one course higher than another? What makes an incredible golf course? I want to uncover all of that and share it with my readers!
