Beyond the Tri-State

Every now and again, I get to venture outside the OINK area to play golf. It doesn’t happen very often; so when it does, I try to capture the moment.

So far, my travels have been limited to Florida, South Carolina, and New Mexico. I also played a decent course in Pennsylvania, but unfortunately didn’t take many pictures during that round. In fact, before my trip to Florida in 2004, I was still using actual film to record my shots. So if I do any reviews of those courses, I’ll have to scan my pictures to a digital format. How old school of me.

Eventually, I’ll get around to posting the pictures of all my trips. For now, this is my list:

Florida
Eagle Creek Golf Club – 2004
The Club at Eaglebrooke – 2004
World Woods (Pine Barrens) – 2004, 2011

    Hey, great site! Just stumbled on you today through Golf Club Atlas. How does one get a log-in ID for GCA, anyway?

    Anyway, insightful course details and great pix on your course reviews. You have a good eye and do a better job of capturing elevations changes and a good vantage point to give a good feel for the hole (better than some golf mags). I was curious what type of camera you use?
    Check out my golf travel site at http://www.fatguygolf.net, an amalgamation of personal and magazine course, bar, and restaurant recommendations from the golf mags and other sources. Drop me a line sometime.

      Joby, I appreciate the kind words! As far as GCA, I reached out to Ran and he hooked me up. I must have lurked on that site for 6 years before I finally had the nerve to ask for access. I usually stick the topics I know best.

      I have a fairly basic point and shoot camera (Canon PowerShot SX120 IS). I “upgraded” in the summer of 2010 from a 4MP camera to the 10MP PowerShot. I admittedly don’t take a lot of pictures around the green, but I guess that’s my style. I like showing my readers the tee shots, plus any other features I think are worth mentioning. With this blog, I try to give a good view with pictures and words of courses that don’t get a lot of detailed attention from other sources. Plus, it helps me keep track of where I’ve played.
