Welcome to the 3-part review series on the three golf courses I played while in Sydney, Australia.
We start with The Coast Golf Club. I chose this club initially due to it’s proximity to the airport and coastal setting. It had 4-star reviews on Google And thought I’d give it a go and see how it stands up with the Traveling Tee Times review.

The Arroyo Golf Club

I had a short few days off and decided to take a quick trip to Las Vegas to play some golf. I ended up choosing Arroyo Club which is a short distance outside the Vegas strip to get in 18 holes. See if it’s worth adding to your list next time you’re in Sin City!

Shangri-La Golf Club

I was recently invited to out to Oklahoma to visit a friend and he recommended that we play at Shangri-La Golf Club in Grand Lake, Oklahoma. I’ll admit I was unsure what to expect going to Afton, Oklahoma which is about 2 hours northeast of Oklahoma City. Take a look and see how the course is!

Golf d’Omaha Beach

On my second and final day in Versailles, France, I decided to get another round of golf in. I was looking locally around Paris for a round but nearly all the public courses were closed on Tuesdays which was my only day to golf before leaving Wednesday. I’m not sure if this is seasonal or if this is a regular occurrence, so something to keep in mind the next time you plan on playing in Paris.

I wanted to get up to the northern shore of France to look at some D-Day sites and found Golf d’Omaha Beach was open on Tuesday and along the coast where D-Day occurred. Keep reading to see if it’s worth it on your next trip to France!

Waikoloa Beach Golf Course

Waikoloa Golf Resort was my first stop on a recent three-day trip to Hawaii. It is a partner of the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa so I took advantage of the discounted greens fees since I chose to stay at the Marriott.

Hapuna Golf Course

On a recent three-day trip to Hawaii, I tried to fill my time with as much golf as possible. I was able to get in two rounds, one being at Hapuna Golf Course. I considered this course and its famous neighbor, Mauna Kea Golf Course. After looking at some initial reviews, I figured I’d give Hapuna a chance especially considering it was significantly cheaper than Mauna Kea.

Half Moon Bay Golf Links

I took a quick trip over Labor Day weekend up to San Francisco and made it a point to get in a round of golf. I looked around and many different courses but decided to go with Half Moon Bay. ​I had the choice between the Parkland style course (Old Course) or Links style course (Ocean Course) designed by Arnold Palmer and Arthur Hills Design, respectively. Both offer their own unique views and challenges for golfers of all skills. Having never played a links style course before, I decided to give it a go.

Bethpage Blue Course

After receiving some recommendations from followers of Traveling Tee Times, I decided my first round had to be at Bethpage State Park. I was tempted to play the Black course but due to the fact it’s first come first serve and I had a limited time window, I went with a guaranteed pick of playing Bethpage Blue.​
