It’s been close to five weeks since I’ve swung a club and that means I’ve started daydreaming about potential golf trips for 2011.
I have conducted intense negotiations with my better half and the end result sees me having ten vacation days (Monday to Friday) that I can use toward golf. With weekends also available to schedule trips around, I might be able to squeeze out three ‘long weekend’ type trips or I can opt for two full-week trips.
It will be practically impossible for me to outdo my 2010 season, which saw me get the opportunity to go to Colorado (Ballyneal) and Nebraska (Sand Hills – still chipping away at my review for this site). I also did a separate trip to British Columbia to play Tobiano, Predator Ridge and Sagebrush.
The quality of the golf is the most important factor for me when determining a potential trip – if the golf is that good, even cost takes a back seat in some respects.
I’m not sure if I’ve alienated my faithful readers with the shocking lack of posts lately but if you’re still reading, let me know your thoughts on potential road trips or other trips I should look into taking for 2011. Even if the courses are private, throw up your thoughts in the comments section or throw me an email!
