The ultimate golf insider’s view:
As Arnold Palmer once said, “Success in golf depends less on strength of body than upon strength of mind and character.” To me, this perfectly sums up why golf is more than a sport, and it’s a game virtually anyone can learn to play.
Golf is a sensory experience. There’s something magical about stepping up to that first tee box of the day and taking in a gorgeous expanse of lush green, smelling freshly cut grass, listening to birdsong, and feeling the breeze and sun on my skin. Even after a challenging round, when things don’t go exactly as I would like, a day on the golf course is a great day indeed. I’m thrilled to share my experience as a golf enthusiast, and I hope to meet you on the links one day!
I am sure many of you feel the same way that I do living in the Northern states right around the middle of January. After dealing with months on end of snow, cold temps and limited daylight, my husband decided I was in need of some Vitamin D.
After checking out the calendar, he discovered I had zero commitments in two weeks. This never happens. My hubby called my partner in crime – aka my sister – and coincidentally she was available too. Before you knew it, we had a trip booked to Scottsdale staying at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess and booked two full days of sun, golf at Troon North Golf Club and great food.
Ballyneal Golf Club is located in Holyoke, Colorado and proved to be a great stop on my most recent #FoodTravelGolf quest. When my travel schedule allows, I enjoy getting the travel destination ahead of my team to do a bit of exploring. I was excited when I was able to arrange getting to Denver ahead of the schedule and do just that. While I have been to Denver several times, most of the visits were spent in a conference setting with limited free time. I am sure a lot of you can relate.
