In an area blessed with incredibly diverse, quality options, that should be all one needs to know.

January Poll Question: Are you REALLY committed to walking the golf course?

I’m an ardent golf course walker.  I’m not a radical absolutist; I will ride a cart when necessary. However, when given the choice and opportunity, I prefer to walk, for a lot of the obvious reasons. I firmly believe that exercise is a critical component of my golfing experience, and nothing accentuates this like walking…
