DI­AL­ING FOR MIR­A­CLES

Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - The Golf Life -

▶ With­out say­ing I work here, I called Golf Di­gest’s 100 high­est-ranked pri­vate cour­ses and asked if I could play. One of them, cany­ata golf club in Illi­nois, said yes! It’s pri­vately owned but al­lows pub­lic play for $500 to $750. (I de­clined.) A pair, In­di­ana’s vic­to­ria na­tional and Colorado’s bal­lyneal, sug­gested I visit as a prospec­tive mem­ber. Eight didn’t re­turn my calls, and the re­main­ing 89 said no. Most, in­clud­ing Au­gusta Na­tional, were very po­lite, but there were a few curt replies. One of my fa­vorites came from a fa­mous Bos­ton-area club. Said the pro: “We don’t al­low peo­ple to just come play golf.” —christo­pher pow­ers
