hriefs  Chicago ❄️ Golf ⛳️ Architecture 🌃

This trip has been filled with great memories. Last week, I parred the Road Hole. Last night, I found the bunker while walking back to town from the Jigger Inn. 🏖

There aren’t too many hidden gems. One exception in the St Andrews area is Elie. A tremendously fun course, especially when playing a seven-club match.

@cehufnagel and I missed out on the Old Course ballot for today. (We played it earlier in the week...) But the real play was heading to 17 tee to walk the final two holes with great friends in our group.

No trip to St. Andrews is complete without a visit to the St Andrews' Ladies Putting Club to challenge The Himalayas.

Golden hour on the Old Course as the final groups traverse the giant, rumpled fairway on 18. 📸: @mjschmitt123

"Links golf forces you to think. It is never straightforward. But when you pull off the shot successfully, it gives you a satisfaction that is more than just a well-played shot can bring. You feel like you’ve had a little mind-over-muscle and beaten the golf course." ~George Peper

Ably survived Carnoustie. And avoided the spectacles bunkers on the 14th hole in the process.

The double plateau, 186-foot green on North Berwick's 16th hole was made for heroic shots. 🐦

Golf is intended to be fun. The historic North Berwick is tough to top. 🎯

Muirfield is an expert study in bunkering — both the strategic placement and in the artistry of its shapes and revetments. Here's the second hole.

The proper H.C.E.G. experience is 💯

Wind and rain are the true defenses of a links golf course. We faced a steady 30 mph wind with gusts up to 40 mph (and occasional rain) at Turnberry today. As the Scots say, “Ney wind, ney rain, ney golf."
