The Club at Morningside – Golf luxury…pure luxury!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailSpring is in the air is a term that just did not fit the best place on earth this year. In fact, it was warmer in Vancouver during the Winter Olympics than it was from March through April. Golfing was a real challenge unless you like wearing 10 layers of clothing and fur-lined golf gloves. Being a golf addict, I ... Read More »

Maui – where women golfers feel right at home

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail Last summer the National Golf Foundation released their 2008 report on the number of people who played golf in the USA over the past decade.

Arg!!! At first I thought, “Okay, I’ll just go back to bed and maybe when I wake up, it will all be gone.” But then I ... Read More »

Legacy Golf Club – Scottish Links in Las Vegas

I’ve played at probably 10 courses in Vegas, and liked most of them, but one of my favorite courses is Legacy Golf Club in ... Read More »

BO GFW: Angel Park Mountain – Golf that’s juusst right!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailThis past spring, my golfguy and I spent 5 days in Las Vegas, playing golf at a different club every day (Angel Park Palm, Boulder Creek, Revere, Angel Park Mountain and Legacy). We had some interesting experiences, some bad experiences and some really memorable ones. Today was one of the memorable ones because it was just sooo “nice”. “Nice” seems ... Read More »
