What I expected in beautiful Pinehurst..by Rory Spears Golfersongolf.com The Gog Blog’s Editor and Director of Content. Follow Rory on Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter @GogBlogGuy, just not down I-75 today in Kentucky and Tennessee.
What I would have got, had I actually made it there. While Pinehurst is not as bad as Kentucky or Tennessee, and it will be back to full golf real soon, but tomorrow won’t be opening day for me on #8.
Jack Bickart is Executive VP of Sales, Jack and his team can set up your next visit to Pinehurst for all the great golf, spa, food & beverage that you need. You can find more information at Pinehurst.com.
So I finally get Bickart to take a break from working the phones, and the ice and a little snow show up to spoil our day on the course. So Pinehurst 8 will have to wait until another day.
The Gog Blog is taking a detour instead, via Georgia and into South Carolina, where the golf season opener has been pushed back until Sunday in Santee. By Monday I’ll have a recap on Santee and the great golf there. The fact that it’s expected to be in the low 60’s and not snowing or raining, makes it a great place already.
From there it’s down to Orlando and the PGA Show that starts at Demo day on Tuesday.
If your watching the weather that is sweeping up and own the east coast, doesn’t it just want to make you book a trip to somewhere warm and start the golf season right now.
I’m just a couple of hundred of snowy miles away from golf season, gotta keep pushing on. #Thinkgolf. RS
