By the end of July, all 50 states and the District of Columbia have closed down for the summer, marking the end to the summer vacation season.
This means it’s time for all of us to get back to work.
But which of the 50 courses will offer the most bang for our buck?
Here are the best courses for newbies.
“This summer is going to be a very exciting time for golfers everywhere,” said John Burt, president and CEO of the National Golf Foundation, the nation’s largest non-profit association for players.
“We’ve been blessed to have a long and successful golf season with no major problems for players, spectators, families and the general public.
We’re looking forward to a full summer of golf, with a lot of excitement for everyone.”
Here are some of the top courses for beginner golfers to enjoy: New York City’s Madison Square Garden is the second-best course in the United States, according to the PGA Tour.
Northeast and Midwest golfers are also looking forward the upcoming summer.
In Minnesota, the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Greenbrier and the Dalles Golf Club are the only courses open during the week of June 15-16.
And on the West Coast, California’s Pebble Beach and Palm Springs Golf Clubs are both offering courses for golf beginners in summer.
This summer, however, the Golden State is closed to golfers for the season and players will be restricted to the golf course until the summer of 2019.
The Golden State also requires golfers who are eligible to play on the PPLs and the PDGA Tour to have at least a bachelor’s degree, an associate’s degree and a professional golf club membership.
