Random Acts of Golf


If you have read much of this blog, you will know that this all started to record and celebrate the "old school" courses filled with fantastical windmills, creepy clowns, and mini replicas of local landmarks. I felt starting this blog was necessary because it seems as though these courses with character are being replaced as more and more with standardized "pirate" themes, superfluous running water that comes from and goes to nowhere, and courses trying to replicate "big" golf, becoming no more than glorified putting greens for "big" golfers to practice putts. I have found other sites that similarly celebrate the inventive side of golf. The first, redtongue.com, shares an irreverent tour of a classic course in Tucson, AZ. Agilitynut.com has an amazing photo collection of courses often accompanied by historical notes.

Here's to the old ones!
