On more than a few occasions -- Christmases mainly -- my lady has handed me an envelope containing a scorecard and gift card to a phenomenal golf course.  Thanks to her, I've enjoyed some of the best the sport has to offer.

The very best courses in the world may be just a half-day's drive from my doorstep. Bandon Dunes is home to four, count 'em four, courses that Golf Digest annually ranks in it's Top 100 Places to Play.  Last Wednesday, my Dad, his friend Jim and my buddy Mike and I set out to see what Bandon Dunes' newest course, Old Macdonald had to offer.  Incidentally, it's ranked #2 on the list of The Most Fun Courses by same publication.

I'm not much of a landscape photographer, but with my golf bag on my shoulder and my DLSR in my hand, I did my best to capture the adventure without getting penalized for slow play.
