I wanted to get something out there to explain some of my reasons for playing certain courses. This is prompted because I get a lot of recommendations for courses to play when I travel. I want those to keep coming, so please don’t misunderstand what is to follow.I stick to my four lists because that is the basis of this quest, but also for financial reasons. I’ve mentioned before that I am a regular guy. I don’t have unlimited resources. So if I have an opportunity to play a course from my lists I definitely will over something else. That doesn’t mean I am blowing off your recommendation. Nothing could be further from the truth, but I have costs associated with all trips. Hotels, flights, gas, food, etc. When I go to destinations I try to maximize my time there.
This is really a long-winded way of saying that I am not trying to disrespect your recommendation. Believe me, I am filing it away for when I get back to certain places. That may be in a year or hopefully in retirement. So keep the course suggestions coming because I really do appreciate them! Thanks for indulging my ramblings and thank you for reading.
