I'm going to knock off two more courses next year on my trip to Scotland (Old Course & Royal Dornoch) -

When will you be at The Old Course?

I would love to play Royal Dornoch, but it’s not in the cards on this year’s trip; however, I do get to play a few other courses on my “bucket list”, including Carnoustie and North Berwick.

DR - Callaway Paradym AI Smoke TD, Newton Motion 4-Dot

4W - Callaway Paradym 3HL, Newton Motion Fairway shaft, 4-Dot

HYB - Paradym X 18*, HZRDUS Smoke Red 80S; Sub 70 949X 21*, same shaft

7W (if played) - Sub 70 849, ProForce Black 80-S

Irons - Callaway Paradym, HZRDUS Silver Gen 4, S-flex

Wedges - Edison 2.0, 53* and 57* (bent to 58*), KBS TGI 100

Putter - (currently in flux, but usually an Evnroll 8V

Ball - Maxfli Tour-X CG (2023)

Bags - Ghost Golf Maverick Black Ops

Cart - MotoCaddy M7 Remote (without the remote)

Spoiler

driver / off the tee is no longer a weakness for me!

Was gonna say Bandon .. with #2 = Sand Valley & Mammoth Dunes .. but .. I think @vandyland and @Jnoble89 might've just flip flopped my picks!! 👍

 

Oh PS: most likely will be joining that Midwest July outing to Wild Horse, NE

I'll extend the same invite! If you make it to SV let me know so I can join and we will finish the evening with cocktails and a boat cruise!

@vandyland as someone who has been on-site at SV (have only played the Par 3 course, sadly), You are 100% correct. Once you enter the property you feel like you're transported to a different area of country. It is NOT at all what Wisconsin geographically is anywhere else in the state. Truly a special place.

...if you make the trek to play it someday, let me know! My in-laws have a lake house 10 minutes away! Would gladly join you and take you on a cruise on the lake afterward!

How do I sign up for this?

Because we have an actual plan in place to play this one, I’m going with Old MacDonald at Bandon Dunes

IMG_2358.jpeg

I don’t want to lose any time getting there, but 2026 is going to be a special year 😁

Can't wait to go back - I've heard from many that the "cheat code" is to go in December.  Greens fees are managable ($110 for first round, $55 for replay) and weather is actually quite manageable (Bandon, OR is in the "banana belt" of Southern Oregon).

I have to ask...why 2026? Why not...2024? 😉

It is a group trip and some of the group are traveling in from Europe. So 2026 gives us enough time to coordinate schedules and what not.

Mine is a bit closer to home, but I will probably never have the opportunity to step foot on it (Cypress)...

If you were to tell me that the only way I could get a chance to play Cypress was if I did it wearing only my underwear, with no golf shoes, during a ladies club day, I'd be like-

Me: Hey Honey, here's $10,000, you're going to need it.

Wife: What for?

Me: bail money. I'm going golfing and won't need a suitcase.

My number one bucket list course would obviously be Augusta National, but since that's not a reasonable ask, the next would be the tournament course at TPC Sawgrass.
