Check Out My New Blog

Yeah, this one never really got going, but it helped me figure out how I actually want to write about golf. I’ve got a new blog, Rub of the Green, where I will be posting on Mondays (and sometimes Thursdays) about courses, equipment, and general happenings in the golf world. My first post is up: it’s a profile of a neglected Tom Doak course called Aetna Springs, and I feel good about it.

If you enjoyed a thing or two I published here on Public Golfer, I invite you to join me over at my new digs: Thanks!


Golfing Cheap in a Land of Plenty: Introducing Public Golfer


I live in a golfing mecca. My apartment is a three-minute walk from the eighteenth tee at Spyglass Hill, a four-minute drive from the pro shop at Pebble Beach, and a five-minute downhill bike ride from the gorgeously framed 13th green at Cypress Point. Since moving here, I have played about 30 rounds of golf in the Monterey area. Not one of these rounds has been at Cypress Point, Pebble Beach, or Spyglass Hill — nor have they been, for that matter, at Monterey Peninsula, Poppy Hills, or Spanish Bay. Inside the 17-Mile Drive gates, where I live, I can’t afford the greens fees.
