The two courses I played here on Florida’s West Coast were fun and challenging, but how many of my readers would play them? I’ve had the privilege the last few days to spend some time with an old...

Carriage Greens - Course Review

Carriage Greens - Course Review
Sunday I had the decision to play golf, or watch the Ryder Cup. With the outcome of the Ryder Cup I’m glad I played golf.
