Rubenstein on home courses of the pros, GCA.com


The Globe's Lorne Rubenstein writes in today's paper about where the pros play when not on the tournament trail. The place line on the story says Lorne was at the Abaco Club in Bahamas, a ultra private course that is referenced in the story a few times. Apparently the course has attracted interested from the PGA Tour's elite:

Els is scheduled to return next month. The local residents are betting that basketball legend Michael Jordan, who sometimes plays at the Lyford Cay Club in Nassau, will be here within a few weeks.

Jordan often tees it up with Redtail Golf Club owner Chris Goodwin at Lyford, but I suspect Abaco is a better course. Not like Jordan can't afford to add another to his list, which surely surpasses the 14 club rule.

Rubenstein also discusses the recent move by Tiger Woods and the speculation he might acquire the McArthur Club. Apparently he likes to jog on the cart paths, though I'm not sure how you make it from there to where he acquires the course. I'm sure a membership would be enough.

On the subject, Lorne says:

Meanwhile, the news that Woods is thinking of joining McArthur has led to all sorts of conjecture. Much of it can be found at golfclubatlas.com, an entertaining World Wide Web site where architecture wonks gather.


The Golfclubatlas thread was called "so far off the whole mark that it's unbelievable," in Rubenstein's article.
