What is it, time for another year? When did this happen? What happened to 2017? I have a lot of questions but the only answer is play more golf!
I knocked off a few C&C courses last year all over the country and this year I aim to do it again. Here are a few on the hit parade for 2018!
Texas is a big state and just big enough to accommodate 3 Coore-Crenshaw courses. I have already been fortunate to play Trinity Forest (can't wait for my next round there!) but there are still 2 more I have to play.
First up is the mysterious Austin Golf Club. There are few pictures of this course and even fewer people have played it but I am hopeful to get my mystery card punched in a few months.
Next is Barton Creek's course. BC has multiple golf courses, all of which look awesome but my heart is set on the aptly named "Coore Crenshaw Golf Course". Can't wait to check out the resort and also some Texas BBQ while I am in Austin.
I have had so many rounds at Bandon Dunes scheduled and then dashed due to life getting in the way but not this year! This is the year I finally play the Trails course, which people rank as either the best course at Bandon or the worst. Such polarizing opinions, I can't wait to see for myself! Also, C&C designed the short Preserve course and will definitely add that to my must play list while at the resort.
I was so close to playing NJ's only C&C course last year but fell just short. This year I am hoping to play this bad boy and perhaps help out a charity while doing so. If I get on, I am going to try and also play Friar's Head or East Hampton on my NY swing.
First there was Bandon in Oregon. Now there is Sand Valley in Wisconsin. Where do I think the next golf destination will be? How about Branson, Missouri? Big Cedar Lodge is really upping their game by adding multiple courses including a C&C course which is slated to open sometime in 2018.
So here I go, hoping to knock off at least 3 C&C courses this year and perhaps ending up playing 6-7 of em! Will I do it? Stay tuned, same C&C Time, same C&C channel!
