"If there's a golf course in heaven, I hope it's like Augusta National. I just don't want an early tee time."—Gary Player
I don’t know if there’s a golf course in heaven. But if there is, I would think everybody, including myself, would behave better in this life to guarantee getting their membership.
So, if heaven doesn't go extra holes, there is one thing I’ll love to do as long as I’m able, besides playing golf, and that's to play golf in different places.
When most of us think of the golf shrines to pay homage to before we die, we pick the obvious: Pebble Beach, St. Andrews. If we think we might be going to hell, we’ll add Pine Valley and Carnoustie.
But golf here on earth is played almost everywhere now, even in countries you don’t associate with the sport.
Play the nine places I’ve found and you’ll probably never look at the game the same way again. If not, I’ll press you on the back side.
