Wow - that’s amazing. Are you back in the city at all? Let me know if you want to get out for a round there during the week. I can likely make it work with a bit of notice. 

 

I can be lol. Let's work something out.

Much respect for those of you who've made that Pinehurst drive. Wilmington and back was a soft hell of driving hypnosis and nightmare drivers. My dad didn't elaborate, but his new setup is pretty sweet. They live in one of the many communities down there and his is bigger than my zip code. The Senior Goose Nest is a hard wedge from the driving range and their back patio sits on the 10th tee box of the course they now live on.

 

It was about 110% humidity and rained every day but I got 9 holes of forward tee practice and got to play the layout from 6600 the next day. Really fun layout with some thick bermuda all around, which was a culture shock to my short game but much more forgiving around the greens.

Is that Dormie Club?  I recognize it from the grass and the sense of despair after finishing.

 

And the lack of friendly employees serving beers after playing.

 

F. Dormie.

What’s the most expensive round you’ve played?

Pinehurst #2. 
 

The 350 rate but ended up not having to pay it … #influencing

Endless you've played Sawgrass too, right?  That list has it at $720.

 

Pinehurst #2 is the most expensive for me.  I assume the only reason it's not on that list is because it's only included in packaged resort prices rather than an explicit rack rate?   The cheapest on that list is $335, and I would guess #2 is more than that.

$550 was sawgrass. Lol. Was worth it because all the stands were up. Otherwise not really to me.

In my second year playing golf, about 2004, I went with a bunch of guys to the Daytona area on a trip.  We somehow managed to play at Hammock Dunes near Flagler Beach. $175. Biggest waste of money ever, not because of the course which was beautiful but because I was such a lousy player. I shot 140 and lost 29 balls.

Don't you have to stay there? That's not a cheap endeavor either. 

 

I was lucky enough to play it before it was a TPC course. 

 

 

I think so, it's been a long time since I was there and I happened to visit when every single course was either being remodeled or shut down. Greenbriar is very expensive.

Played PH #2 in April 2018 for the first time and paid the $385 rack rate plus $115 total for the caddie.

 

Kingsbarns greens fees for me in 2019 were £288 - which was about $380 at the time I paid for it 9 months in advance.  Right now it's £328 which is over $450 USD.  The course is absolutely spectacular, but it really shouldn't be the most expensive course in Scotland.
