Coore Crenshaw Quest Update!
As all three readers of this blog knows, I am on a quest to play as many of the Coore-Crenshaw designed golf courses as I possibly can. For a current list of the courses, check out the link here: http://www.re-gripped.com/2015/05/coore-crenshaw-bucket-list.html
I have also started a stand-alone Website for my C+C Quest and I recommend you all update your bookmarks accordingly ;)
So far, I have played just one course but it was a doozy, Kapalua!
However, this year I am really ramping up my C+C game and thought I would update you guys on what is going on!
In a month I am going on an Arizona golf adventure and will be knocking off 3, count em 3, Coore-Crenshaw courses, We-Ko-Pa and the two courses at Talking Stick. I have never played golf in Arizona and I am expecting hot, heaping, heat but also great golf courses.
Next up, and BIG news, I have been invited to play at Sand Hills Golf Club!!!! I am beyond excited and have been bouncing off the walls since the invite. So many people say its a golf-life changing experience and I can't wait to experience it for myself!
Part of my Sand Hills trip will take me through Colorado and if I can manage it, I am hoping to get a round in at Colorado Golf Club, which sounds like an ultra-hard C+C track. This hopefully won't be my only trip to the heartland this year as Sand Valley is having a soft opening for its CC course in Wisconsin and I hope I get to see it in person!
Finally, my in-laws live in Texas. I love Texas golf and Texas in general, it really is a country onto itself in many ways which I find fascinating. What is also fascinating is that Texas has 2 Coore/Crenshaw tracks and I am hoping to play Barton Creek and figure out a way to play Trinity Forest which is opening in Dallas this Fall.
In summary: Coore/Crenshaw courses played so far 1 of 21. Definitely will be played after this year 6 of 21. Maybe possibly if I am a good boy will have played by the end of the year? 9 of 21! Wish me luck and if you do have any inroads to Coore/Crenshaw courses send them my way to firstname.lastname@example.org!
