I mentioned on my story a couple days ago that I’m going to start a YouTube series featuring public golf courses. I grew up on munis and public courses, that’s where I feel most at home. What public golf courses should I visit? And let me know if you want to be involved, I’ll need people to show me around your home courses ☺️ #growthegame #letsmakegolfinclusive I’ll be featuring the course from this video. If you know, you know haha.
