What To Play – June 2016


Pebble Beach Golf Links (blacks) by Brandon Pugh


We looked at some courses last month that were on the extreme ends of he scale, either courses that played the easiest or courses that were most difficult. This month I will be focusing on the middle of the spectrum, highlighting courses that I have marked as Medium-Easy, Medium, or Medium-Hard difficulties. These may fluctuate on your own personal spectrum, but these should provide for a good moderate range of challenges. You will also see a good mix of designers, themes, and different styles to choose from. And lastly, as usual, you will see my appreciation for real courses also reflected here with a number of them mixed in.
