I am starting a road trip this Friday (21st of August). I am looking for some recommendations of places to eat or roadside attractions to see. Im trying to plan some golf, and I am always down to meet up with some guis. I am pulling a small trailer with my truck and will be going solo. I am bringing the sticks to play some awesome golf on this trip. I haven’t booked anything yet so I am completely open. I have a few courses on my planned itinerary, but I don’t have anything locked in yet.
I’m open to all suggestions on golf, and especially want to meet up with some people.
here is the current plan:
Pick up on the 21st of August
