Sampling Some Apres Golf in Music City, Nashville, TN:

There is no doubt that Nashville's reputation is based on the twangy notes of the country music industry. The Tennessee capital has been building on that identity, establishing itself as a cultural and economic hub of prominence within the south.  With the recent successes of its sports teams placing Nashville in the eyes of North America, The Music City has become more than a place to celebrate country music crooners.

On The Tee at Wolf Creek, Mesquite, NV:


It is difficult to look at any of the plethora of "Best 100" or "Must Play" lists of major publications and not encounter Wolf Creek Golf Course in their rankings.

This remarkable one hit wonder is located in Mesquite Nevada, a once sleepy Mormon farming community that sits adjacent to the Nevada / Arizona border.

Shotmaking on McCormick Ranch, Scotsdale, AZ:


The extensive Scottsdale Greenbelt is home to a vast collection of golf courses. The McCormick Ranch Golf Club is one of these facilities, a wonderful 36-hole complex surrounded by the master-planned community bearing the same name. Built during the early 1970's in the height of suburban expansion and large-scale developments in Scottsdale to handle the influx of people looking for a desert oasis to call home, the once- thriving ranch land filled with Angus cattle and Arabian horses was transformed into a terrific residential golf community and resort certainly worthy of a visit...
