Carlyle, I live in ATL, but my home course is the Cotton Creek Golf Club in Spartanburg, SC (now known as 'The Creek Course').
It is an average course at best, but it has great memories because I played it with my father when I would go home. Now he can't play anymore (age 81, and bad back), but great memories, and he always walks with me when I play).
Question: What does a golf course have to be in order to make it "special" for an individual player? I would love to have a crack at ANGC, PVGC, CPGC, NGLA, Merion, etc, but if that never happens, I will be fine with my time on the links with my dad, no matter where the course.
Any thoughts from the treehouse regarding memorable rounds with sons/daughters, relations? With future pros? With Huckaby??
