The below images are golf courses that I have not played, but would hope to someday. Perhaps you have played similar type courses as shown below. If you have, then count your blessings. Even though we do not have ocean views here in Arizona, we do have some spectactular golf.
Sometimes we just miss the point of being fortunate to have the means to pay to play golf. Some of us (including me) may never get to play Pebble Beach, St. Andrews, Augusta National, and many other world famous golf courses. But we can embrace our local golf courses here in Arizona with pride and enjoyment.
So, the next time you complain about the greens, bunkers, slow fairways, and lack of a beer cart; remember you could be somewhere else thinking about playing golf.
