Pusch Ridge GC - Hole #6

The El Conquistador Country Club offers spectacular views of the Santa Catalina Mountains and the Tucson Valley. This Hilton property offers two 18-hole championship golf courses and a challenging 9-hole course carved through the rolling hills of the Sonoran Desert. I chose the  Read more →

Pine Meadows CC #3

Sign in residents backyard off 3rd fairway.

Was the three hour drive from Phoenix worth it to play this 9-hole course? The scenic and serene drive north on Highway 87 was, as it cleared my head and stirred my creative thoughts. As I turned east on Highway 260, I knew I was in trouble when  Read more →

Overland Golf Course

Cruising across I-90 in Montana between Billings and Bozeman, I understand why they call this Big Sky country.

Hole #2 – Par 5, 490 yards. Tree trouble down left side.

Hole #10 “Lake” – this is the first hole I found. Interesting, I thought this was a 9-hole course. I drove a little farther and located Hole #1 (also named Lake).

If you have a nasty hook, have another ball at the ready. Hole #2 “Long” – tree trouble left at this straight 490 yard par 5. Hole #3 “Pines” – pine trees left and right and a big Read more →

Hotchkiss GC #3

Hole #3 Par 5, 401 yards. Watch out for that hidden bunker.

Nestled in the beautiful northwest corner of Connecticut, The Hotchkiss School Golf Course is just a hotch, kiss and a jump off Route 112. But getting to Route 112 is another story. Autumn is a great time to travel to this 9-hole hidden gem, so whatever route you decide to take, it will be the road less traveled. Know it is going to take some time to get there, so take a deep breath, relax and enjoy the scenery along the way. Read more →
