Squeezing in a Quick Round: Part 2

"Achievements on the golf course are not what matters, decency and honesty are what matter"  ~Tiger Woods

     Hello and welcome back to GET SOME Golf! This post is a continuation of the previous post regarding my favorite courses of all time. At the end, if you would like to list what your favorite golf courses are, please leave them in the comments below.

The 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass
     The silver medal goes to: The Players Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. I have always admired the work of Pete Dye and the history behind the 17th hole is amazing. Dye intentionally wanted to the hole to consist of a tee box, a green, and nothing but sand in between. His wife made the comment about saving money on sand by filling it with water and he fulfilled his wife's idea. Now it is one of the toughest holes on the PGA Tour during the Players Championship and if you don't believe me, you can look up statistics about it. If you would like any other information about this course, or want to view some of the beautiful holes please visit:

The 12th hole (Amen Corner) at Augusta National
     And finally, my all-time favorite course and dream course that I would love to play is: Augusta National Golf Club. Augusta National has been around since the 1930s and has hosted some of the biggest names in the world of golf. Since 1934, this course has hosted the Masters tournament where the first winner of the tournament was Horton Smith. Ever since then, it has grown to be one of the most iconic and beautiful places in the world to play. The only way to play the course is if you are a member there, have been invited to play, or you have been inducted as a member of the course. If you would like to know more about the history of the course, view some of the holes and course layout, or find more information regarding the Masters tournament please go to: for more details.

     I have dreamed about playing these courses and wish I could on some of them, but time and money will tell if that will come true or not. As mentioned, I would like to extend this similar idea out to anyone: if you would like to tell me your favorite golf courses, please let me know! I will say there are some spectacular courses throughout the United States and it would be amazing to see what people love and want to play.

     Thanks for reading "GET SOME Golf!" Please pass this along to your playing partners!
