The Ultimate Golf Course Bucket List

The Ultimate Golf Course Bucket List

When you think of the ultimate golf course bucket list, what would be on your list? St Andrews, of course. The Masters? Without a doubt! A sheep course in New Zealand? If not, well, it should be!

In our travels, we search out the best, the most beautiful, the most unique, and the most historical golf courses the entire world has to offer. Located in over 60 countries on 6 continents, our Ultimate Golf Course Bucket List is an unbelievable 550 courses long!

We knew traversing the globe chasing our list was going to be a full-time endeavor. So, in 2018 we quit our jobs, sold most of our belongings, and set out with just backpacks and golf clubs on our backs. Can we make it? Who knows, but we are going to give it a try!

We realize many courses on our list are private, which means that we most likely will not be able to complete our goal. However, we have been amazed by the generosity of strangers who have become friends in an effort to help us achieve our dreams. If there is a course that you may be able to help us play, please drop us an email. We would be forever grateful!

The courses listed below that we have played are in bold. If you don’t find your favorite golf course below, please drop us a comment and we will do our best to play it!

But enough about all that, because we are here to talk about the Ultimate Golf Course Bucket List, so let’s get right to it….
