2017 Quest Update


The first half of 2017 has been a little quiet on the course-visiting front but on the course-planning front it has been full speed ahead! Here is what is going on for the second half of 2017:

Up First- Hidden Creek:

The only C&C course in New Jersey, I hopefully will be visiting this course as part of a trip back East to see family. The course is in Egg Harbor Township which is really close to the Atlantic Ocean but yet tucked in the Jersey pines which should give it a unique feel. Cross your fingers for me that the invite comes through! 

Then- A ThreeFer:

One thing about C&C courses is that they are spread out in out of the way places. As I don't have an unlimited amount of money, if I find myself in a certain part of the country I am going to make the rounds while I am there. In more or less proximity you have:

Sand Valley (Wisconsin)
Warren (Indiana)
Colorado Golf Club (Colorado)

I plan on hitting all three in a whirlwind trip and also see a few other courses in those areas. I am going to spend the most time at Sand Valley and it will be my first Mike Keiser golf resort and I am looking forward to all that entails. Is Wisconsin the next Oregon for golf? Time will tell! 

Warren typically isn't on people's radar but it should be! I hear it is a super solid course, certainly enough so that it is hosting the 2019 US Senior Open! Very excited to play that track! 

Finally I am capping it all off by a trip to the Colorado Golf Club. This course hosted the Solheim Cup and from what I hear it both a beast and beautiful! 

Finally- Clear Creek Tahoe:

I have never been to Tahoe but I hear it is beautiful and while C&C typically design their courses out in vast tracks of space, I am eager to play a course amongst the pines. 

So there we are, I am going after 5 courses in 5 months. Hopefully it all lines up and you will be reading trip reports a plenty over the next few months!
