Have been blessed to have time to travel and play this wonderful game for 50 years. Have enjoyed getting to many top 100 courses both near and far. I love the fact that so many GB&I courses allow visitor play without member invitation, thus 23 trips over have been made.

Twisted Dune 30/06/2019

37th New Jersey - Best in Area
The first hole is a great opener. It's a fairly wide open par 4 which is of average length. For those who stray dramatically it will be a lost ball as the confines left a...
