In Search of...The Most Beautiful Golf Courses in the US
Golf is a true American pastime. It differs from many professional sports in that it is not played in a large, imposing, crowded stadium, but rather in the solitude and splendor of the great outdoors. Tournaments, championships, even a casual game with friends, all take place on an open course surrounded by the beauty of nature. What an inspiring setting for sport.
There are golf courses throughout the US with truly breathtaking locations, such as at the foot of a gorgeous mountain, on a bluff overlooking the sea or right smack on the beach. What better way to spend the day than playing a round of golf in the middle of stunning scenery.
