How to Pack a Suitcase Efficiently for your next Golf Trip!

My wife starts planning her packing several days before we leave for a trip.  She puts items of clothing to one side (to make sure they are not worn before we leave) and she will systematically mark items off her travel list to make sure she does not leave anything behind.  I on the other hand, will pack an hour before I leave for the airport, throw things in a suitcase and inevitably arrive at my destination having forgotten several items.  Which one are you? Here is a really neat set of travel hacks brought to you by . . .

Check out Stunning Cabot Cliffs in Northern Nova Scotia!

 

Two golf course developers named Mike Keiser and Ben Cowan – Dewar combined their talents to produce not only Cabot Cliffs, but it's elder sibling, Cabot Links. They chose designers Rod Whitman for Cabot Links, and the now-famous team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw designed Cabot Cliffs.  

I've discovered while writing these posts that golfers enjoy seeing images of beautiful courses. I'm with them!  This post exposes you to the newly-opened (July 1, 2015) Cabot cliffs golf course in northern Nova Scotia in Canada . . .

We match Top Chefs at Top Golf Courses. A Golfing foodie’s dream!

I love great food and good restaurants.  Add a really good bottle of wine, and I'm in heaven!   I envy a journalist like Josh Sens who gets to try out all these restaurants and GOLF Magazine pays him to write about it.  Need an assistant Josh?  Joking aside, Josh does a great job of bringing us a taste, albeit one vicariously, of the best food in golf!  Next February I'll be playing in the Mizuno Pebble Beach Pro-Am, so I guess I'll be dining at Roy's at Spanish . . .

Come with me in 2019 and see the West Coast of Ireland like never before!

I absolutely LOVE Ireland, the people, their music and their great golf courses.  In order to appreciate Ireland, you have to experience the journey.  Travelling all the way from Malin Head down the west coast of Ireland to the fishing village of Kinsale.  Kinsale is home to one of the finest golf courses in Ireland, Old Head Golf Links.

If you have not visited an Irish pub, listened to local musicians, and had a pint of Guinness, you have not lived!  Start planning now to come with me in 2019 to Ireland . . .

When playing in Scotland take a Caddie for an unforgettable experience!

The best caddie I ever had was at North Berwick in Scotland.  I was fortunate to get a European Tour caddie whose boss, Manuel Pinero, had taken the week off and his caddie was available.  On that day I saw what a difference a really good caddie can make in a round of golf.   I shot 68 that day.  Without the caddie, I would have scored at least 4 strokes higher.  

There are very few courses left in the USA that offer caddies for hire. As many of us agree, it's a shame . . .
