Golf Related Bucket List?

Tue Jan 03, 2017 11:51 pm

Posted by DennisMiller


Ever since the movie with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, I'm sure we've all heard talk about bucket lists.

Do you have any golf related items on yours? Be reasonable... No wishes to play Augusta National when you already know it's just not going to happen.

I have a few, but the main one is to travel back to Louisville, Kentucky, where I grew up. I want to play golf with old friends and on some courses where we grew up together.

Another is a bit looser, to get to the UK for a Forum Day, or at least if I can get there, to play golf with a bunch of you.

How about you?
I've had a good day if I didn't fall out of the cart...

Pebble Beach, Leopard creek and move to Hermanus so I can join Hermanus GC and chill out in the Western Cape.

Secondary to TPC Sawgrass, I'd like to go to the World Golf Hall of Fame that is part of the complex.

Every time we drive up Interstate 95 to North Carolina on our way to visit our grandkids, we pass the exits near Ponte Vedra Beach that advertise it.

I haven't given up on Augusta yet. Never thought I'd play Pebble Beach either :)

(did I mention I'd played Pebble Beach? :lol:  )

I don't really have many courses now on my must play list as I've been lucky enough to play most of the ones I really wanted to. Probably Royal County Down, Crans-sur-sierre and the Old Course at Sunningdale would be the three I'd pick now.

Same as Hursty, my aim is for my first hole in one. Also to make it once to category one (handicap 5.4 or under). Finally to shoot under par gross.

Not to much to ask for eh? :D

In this order:
An Albatross. I want this more than an Ace. My new MP59's will help me achieve both.
Carnoustie My favorite course. I will play this one day.
Pine Valley. A private course in New Jersey. Supposedly harder to get on than Augusta. I don't believe that.

After I had my accident I spent many hours sitting thinking about where I'd played over the years and where I'd like to play if I was able to make it onto the course again. I don't really have a list as such, but, what I have done since then is enjoy every time I've made it onto the golf course again. Doesn't matter if I played to handicap or struggled to break 100, I can honestly say I've enjoyed each and every round and every good shot. You never know what's around the corner, so make the most of it when it's there  ;)

I have been very fortunate to play some great courses over the years but have never had a must play list,very much like DCB.If i happen to get the chance to play a great course then so be it but i certainly won't go out of my way to make sure i play any.Asthey say " live for today,your a long time dead"

No Jay you never mentioned Pebble Beach ;) - You're one up on me there, but I will raise you RCD & Sunningdale both of which I have played several times - Promise I won't mention my 4x HOI's or my Cat One handicap :lol:
