Obama Takes a Three-Day Golf Vacation in Palm Springs

I know what you’re thinking. Should he really be doing this given that the economy is just so-so and the world is in crisis? But look, it’s been six weeks since he had a vacation. I mean, give the guy a break.

President Obama is taking a three-day golf vacation in Palm Springs, California. Obama arrived there Saturday after a quick flight from San Francisco, where he a had two “official” events and a fundraiser.

While the events in San Francisco were legitimate, it is also legitimate to ask whether he schedules them out in California so he can get his golf vacation in without any bad PR.

So before you play your next round, I’d like to offer up a bit of advice on how you can fit right in with low-handicappers — all without having to buy the fancy gear or shoot the low scores.

But first, an admission: All of us in the game need to do a better job of not only lightening up the rules a little for you but also educate you with the complex ways of golf course etiquette.

World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses

Golf Digest has been ranking courses for almost half a century. Here, for the first time, we present the World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.

We compiled a ballot of the world’s best layouts, from Aamby Valley to Zimbali, and sent it to our U.S. Course Ranking panelists, our 27 international editions and their respective Course Ranking panels, and other selected people we have come to know and trust. In total, 846 knowledgeable, well-traveled golfers completed our survey, rating each course they were familiar with on a 10-point scale. Courses needed a minimum of 20 ballots to qualify for our ranking.

Top of the list, by a clear margin, was Pine Valley, New Jersey’s heathland homage to Sunningdale in England. Forty of the top 100 are American courses—a fitting number given that America’s 15,619 courses make up 46 percent of the estimated 34,000 global total. Our ranking spans 18 countries.
