017 – Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort and Spa (feat. Brad Scott)

On a 415-acre tract of swampland in northeast Florida, the history of golf would be altered forever. On that site, ground was broken for what would become THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. Opening in 1980, THE PLAYERS Stadium was built to challenge the pros like no other golf course had done before, while providing an unprecedented experience for spectators at the same time. Renowned architect Pete Dye began to scribble on a placemat drawing out the makings of a course. The rest is history.

013 – Sand Valley (feat. Steve Kurtz)

Located in the prehistoric, tumbling sand dunes of central Wisconsin, Sand Valley offers three unique golf experiences modeled after the Heathland golf courses of London. The first two courses, Sand Valley and The Sandbox are by Coore & Crenshaw, and a third course, Mammoth Dunes, is designed by David McLay Kidd. Sand Valley Resort is a dream golf destination that will deliver an experience you and buddies will never forget.

007 – Erin Hills (feat. Rich Tock)

Erin Hills is a course like none other — routed over the kettle moraine areas left by glaciers, surrounded by wetlands and a river, on ground that consists of glacial till of varied composition of sand and small rock. It was an unconventional decision for a golf course in Wisconsin. The course was designed to accommodate the 2017 U.S. Open, in terms of both the challenge to the players and the logistics of the spectators.

011 – Pinehurst Resort (feat. Ben Bridgers)

Around the world, Pinehurst is where the American golf story is rooted, and where it continues to flourish. Most know of its modern history – with stories like the Payne Stewart putt that won the 1999 U.S. Open. But locked with its archives are thousands of moments that define each generation for the past 100 years. Pinehurst is America’s first golf resort.

Since 1898, Pinehurst has hosted more championships than any other club in the country and they look forward to being the site of the 2024 U.S. Open Championship. Until then, you are invited to explore all of the nine courses and create a championship experience of your own. This bucket list golf trip destination will leave you and your buddies a memory that will last a lifetime.
