Torrey Pines From GolfBlogger’s round in 2007
During the months-long golf off-season here in Michigan, I find that I am thankful for the PGA Tour’s Hawaii and West Coast Swings. The television images of sunny skies, palm trees, and beaches are a welcome relief from the dark skies, snow and mud here in our Pleasant Peninsula. While I would not trade Michigan summers and autumns for anything, I’m envious of those who can play year-round.
I don’t have long until I can retire from my teaching gig, and I look forward to being able to spend a couple of weeks in January or February playing golf among the palms. I managed to get out to play Torrey Pines a couple of years ago. Playing Riviera is on my bucket list, but like Augusta, I have no idea how I’d ever pull that off.
