Before the kids started to arrive, I was lucky to play allot of golf. I think the membership to OSU was $125 or $150 in my day, so my class schedule usually in spring was front loaded with early classes.
Both parents are Scots so I was lucky to travel across the pond 4 times in the 90's. St. Andrews and Carnoustie are the easy two. We spent most of the time on the East Coast, so I can't claim Turnberry or Royal Troon. East of Edinborough are two gems. Gullane # 1 is one of the toughest courses I have played and North Berwick is very scenic. If you can get north to Inverness (my favorite city in Scotland), play Nairn. Spend the night in Inverness and then travel just a little farther north to my favorite course in the world Royal Dornoch. If I could pick one course to play the rest of my life, it would be that one.
i got to play a couple of courses in the London area. Woburn (at the time) was site of the British Masters and Kings Park was where they filmed some scenes for "A Bridge too Far"
i've played most of the public courses in Columbus. Belonged to Jeffferson before I moved south and got to play New Albany a few times. Muirfield was one (and the Golf Club) that I was never able to get on. I got to play Longaberger several times before the basket business went to hell. My favorite course in the Columbus area is Granville.
Have done Vegas numerous times and one of my coolest rounds was playing the Desert Inn just weeks before they plowed it under. It was amazing how well maintained the course was right until the end.
