OT--Patios

I know that we have had this thread before, but we are sitting on the patio overlooking the 18th at Mid Pines on a spectacular Carolina day. Difficult to think of a better 19th hole venue.

Pebble Beach, Augusta, Whistling Straits,
Live Jupiter, Fl, was  4 handicap, played top 100 US, top 75 World. Great memories, no longer play, 4 back surgeries. I don't miss a lot of things about golf, life is simpler with out it. I miss my 60 degree wedge shots, don't miss nasty weather, icing, back spasms. Last course I played was Augusta

Do I really need to shout out Gleneagles SF? There is patio with a quasi-bar overlooking the 9th/18th which leads to hilarious cheers and jeers as folks take on the brutal tiered green.

You havenít really played there until youíve been heckled for falling short putting up the mackenzie and then rolling back, past where youíre standing, and off the green. But putting one close will get you a standing ovation.

I am kinda partial to this view from the porch at Musgrove Mill.

I have a very vivid memory of sitting outside the bar at Saunton, as the Sun was setting many years ago.  Spectacular.


The outside seating at Crail can be pretty good on a nice evening.  Surely CPC is in the conversation?  I am very fond of the patio area at Elie.

For not having an ocean view, I really thought for the expansive views Piping Rock was great.  It is long and narrow, but overlooks the huge old polo field.

Lots of great ones with many different vibes, but for views it's tough to beat Old Head on a sunny day and for intimacy it's tough to beat Dunes Club.

There is nothing like incorporating the house amenity areas with the course. Woking does it about well as well as well can be.

There are so many great places. Mid Pines is pretty darn good.


Ben's Porch at Sand Hills? Wonderful.


Sitting behind the 9th hole at WBYC having a drink watching balls roll down the hill toward the hole is fun.


The covered patio between the pro shop and locker room at Shoreacres...delightful.






I think I'm realizing I enjoy 19th holes more than I typically like the preceeding 18?!  ;D ;)

There is no experience like hitting a second shot into 18 at Caledonia on a weekend afternoon. The patio is jammed with overserved bros on mancations, and the chirping is ruthless and constant. Oh, and the view from up there is pretty nice, too.

An October view from the patio at Ballyhack is pretty nice.

On a nice sunny summer day, Wallasey Golf Club in England and Kilspindie in Scotland provide a comfortable setting and great view of the 18th green.  The empty pint glasses pile up.  In particular Kilspindie is right on top of the situation.  No attorney, insurance provider, architect nor operator in America would allow such proximity.  Still it seems to work.  I would post some pictures but this web site has never made that easy for this lazy contributor.
It must be kept in mind that the elusive charm of the game suffers as soon as any successful method of standardization is allowed to creep in.  A golf course should never pretend to be, nor is intended to be, an infallible tribunal.
