Journey to 50 States

Golfadelphia is gunning to play in all 50 states!  Back in 2014, I started wondering how many states I’ve actually played in.  It ended up being quite a few, which made me wonder whether I could play in all 50 states at some point if I started working on it.  Well, here’s the list of states played, along with those I played in red once I start planning it out:

  • Alabama: Oxmoor Valley
  • Arkansas: Hardscrabble
  • Arizona: Desert Forest
  • California: Pasatiempo
  • Colorado: Bear Creek CC
  • Connecticut: Yale 
  • Delaware: White Clay Creek
  • Florida: PGA National – Championship 
  • Georgia: Lookout Mountain
  • Hawaii: Kapalua Plantation
  • Idaho: Coeur D’Alene Resort
  • Illinois: Ravisloe
  • Indiana:  Played October 2016 (Chariot Run)
  • Kansas:  Played October 2017 (Prairie Dunes)
  • Kentucky: Heritage Hill
  • Louisiana: TPC Louisiana 
  • Maryland: Rum Pointe
  • Massachusetts:  Played August 2015 (Red Tail)
  • Michigan: Ravines 
  • Minnesota: Played July 2019 (Somerset Country Club)
  • Mississippi:  Played November 2015 (The Oaks)
  • Nebraska:  Played June 2016 (Dismal River)
  • Nevada: Paiute Wolf Course
  • New Hampshire: Countryside GC 
  • New Jersey: Pine Valley
  • New York:  Played August 2015 (National Golf Links of America)
  • North Carolina: Echo Farms
  • Ohio:  Played June 2015 (Reserve Run)
  • Oklahoma: Played February 2019 (Jimmie Austin)
  • Oregon:  Played January 2018 (Bandon Dunes)
  • Pennsylvania: Glen Mills
  • South Carolina: Harbour Town
  • Tennessee:  Played September 2015 (Black Creek GC)
  • Texas: Old American 
  • Vermont:  Played August 2015 (Equinox)
  • Virginia: Raspberry Falls
  • Washington: Chambers Bay
  • West Virginia Played March 2016 (Lakeview)
  • Wyoming: Jackson CC

And here are the states I need to play in:

Alaska
Iowa
Maine
Missouri
Montana
New Mexico 
North Dakota
Rhode Island
South Dakota
Utah
Wisconsin

No doubt some of these states will be easier than others to knock off, but my plan is to get to all of them, leaving Alaska as the last one.  Once that happens, my wife and I will go there for vacation and I will get my round in.  There really isn’t a time table for this, but it’s something that I’m now considering when I’m making my golf plans for the season.  

What this means for the site is that in addition to more local reviews, there should be reviews of each course I play in from each state.  So really, looks like this is the season of more content, all of which should be a lot of fun.  Here’s to me golfing in all 50 states and having some great stories and memories coming out of it.  I’ll update this list as the states start coming off.
