Can you feel that? The calendar might have just turned to spring, but we are all already thinking about teeing it up in the summer.
That got the Travel Caddie thinking about some of the hottest courses — pun intended — to play from June through September.
Here are five spots to make sure you hit up:
Brewster, Wash. will definitely be the talk of the golf world come May as it opens Quicksands, a new short course designed by David McLay Kidd. Carved into a 25-acre portion of the larger Gamble Sands property, the course holes range for 60 to 160 yards, so it will put your short game to the test.
Kidd had a bit of fun with this design, with the first hole being called “Plinko,” the third nicknamed “Crater” and the ninth carrying “Corkscrew” as its calling card.
Getting the ball close to the hole? Yeah, it’s going to be tough.
“I think that when the golfers get out there, they’re going to be shaking their heads and chuckling, and figuring out how they’re going to get the golf ball close,” says McLay Kidd.
