It's seems the only time I can play a copious amount of golf is when I go away on a golf trip. Go away, take a break from the jobs and just play golf.
It's been since the early spring in North Carolina that I've had a sustained run of golf. Now Hilton Head Island is beckoning once again for me to play.
The Lowcountry at its best in the fall. Idyllic weather, amazing course conditions, no crowds and delicious seasonal southern fare. All my favorite things!
