In July of 2012 Kate and I were coming up on our 7th anniversary, so we decided to take a 7-year Itch Tour to London. We started looking for plane tickets and found that during the week of Thanksgiving, they were cheaper (apparently because nobody from the US goes to UK during Thanksgiving, because they […]

Bentwater Golf Club is located in Acworth, GA, about 45 minutes to an hour north of Atlanta. It’s one of the 20+ golf courses in the Canongate stable, of which I’m a member. I’ve played here about a dozen times, and consider it our home course. Also it’s very female-friendly, with reasonable chances for par […]

Harbour Town Golf Review - Hilton Head, SC

I have been looking forward to playing Harbour Town Golf Links for quite awhile. I’ve watched the PGA tournament there (currently Verizon Heritage) for years, and was always impressed with what looked like the tightest fairways on tour. Not sure if they are the tightest on tour but they are extremely tight, which made for […]

Pubcon 2010 In-House SEO event

October 10, 2010

Was thinking of all the good times I had at the Pubcon In-House SEO event 2 years ago, and thought we should do it again. Considering how busy everyone gets at Pubcon, it makes sense to get together on Monday night to watch the football game. Cincinnati is playing Pittsburgh, so it should be a […]

We heard good things about Mirror Lake Golf Club (specifically the condition of the greens, which were impressive) so I took a Friday off and we drove down to Villa Rica to play. Mirror Lake has 36 holes – the Lake course and the Mountain course. We played the Lake, but enjoyed it so much […]

Pine Meadow Golf Course Review, Mundelein, IL

I’ve played Pine Meadow 4-5 times in the past, and have always been impressed with the conditioning. It costs about $100 to play (with cart) which is a bit more than most, but it is an above average layout, so worth it once in awhile. Since I was only in Chicago for the weekend, and […]

Tierra Rejada Golf, Moorpark California

I played Tierra Rejada on a warm and breezy Wednesday afternoon. I arrived around 12:30 or so, and was able to get on pretty quickly. I rented a set of clubs and paid my greens fees (teed off at 1, getting twilight) with a total cost of $85. Although the rental clubs weren’t the greatest […]

Lost Canyons golf review - Sky course - Simi Valley, CA

I walked in to Lost Canyons clubhouse on an early Sunday afternoon in August. I was fresh off a 4 hour flight, but determined to get a round in before my meetings started on Monday. I was greeted by a very friendly person at the counter, and chose to play the Sky Course (Lost Canyons […]

Pinehurst 8 golf course review – Pinehurst, NC

July 4, 2010
Pinehurst 8 golf course, Village of Pinehurst, North Carolina

The final round of our Pinehurst trip was at Pinehurst #8, and it turned out to be my favorite course of the 4 we played (including Pinehurst #4, #6, #7 and #8.) Pinehurst #8 was built by Tom Fazio to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Pinehurst Resort. There also aren’t any houses on the course, […]
