A rumination and three cheers for that collection of golf courses that are truly familiar, old haunts that are comfortable to play, no matter how long it’s been since it was last played. As we head into the New Year, it’s a time for lots of plans and planning. What new places to visit? What new goals to shoot for? That’s all fun and fine, but it’s also a time for appreciating the good places in golf that are already known to us.
