Where the THP Tour Van Takes Us!

So I just got back from a tour of the different courses here and I must say, I am pretty blown away. As many know, that does not happen often by a course, but these layouts are truly spectacular. We got as many pictures in before the thunder started, but hopefully this will give you a taste of what to expect when it comes to the THP Fall Golf Outing & Demo Day. There was very little sun, but these should give you an idea of the layout and beauty that is here at this resort.

Getting a chance to play a course that has held a PGA Championship, a Ryder Cup, and a regular PGA Tour Stop is something special. Now I see why all of these events have been held here. My pictures do not do justice to the incredible conditions that I saw today. I am so excited to come back here in the fall with other THP members and play these courses.

Some of the pictures of courses may be slightly mixed up, since I am going off of memory and took over 100 photos quickly before it rained.

All carts come with GPS.
















The Haig Course








The Palmer Course

Wow. Just wow. Nice place.

And, by the way, I like the GPS! hehe (Do they release from the holder easily in case it's needed off the cart?)

those bunkers are going to kill me!

I just got back from my final spa treatment and all I can say is WOW! The best massage I have ever had, fantastic mud wrap (in fact it was so good I fell asleep haha), and a phenomenal mani/pedi! I haven't felt this pampered in years. First class all the way. Plus I spent the time between treatments at the mineral pools relaxing in the "dead sea" it was simply spectacular.

Very nice pics, JB. My question is: did you carry the bunker?

Golf Chick The Bear Trap is one of the most amazing collection of holes you'll ever play. It is named such because Jack Nicklaus (The Golden Bear) designed the Champions Course and Jack named holes #15,16 and 17 that because historically that is where the most action has taken place. The three hole stretch is a tremendous combination of risk-reward, all out challenge and of course, add the pressure of a Sunday on TOUR and you can see where the The Bear Trap gets its name. I've been fortunate enough to play the Champions Course and stay at PGA National. In fact, it is soooo good, it is THE place we chose to introduce the Bridgestone Golf brand to U.S. Golf market. We had a collection of the finest media in golf attend our "Coming to America" event that we staged for Bridgestone in 2005, and without exception all were blown away by the course, food, service and of course the products we unveiled. : ) I'm hoping to make the THP outing, but if I don't I know you'll all be having a wonderful time. Great pics JB, but even these good photos don't do the place justice.

I have not played it. Just simply here to take pictures to showcase the resort and courses that everybody has the opportunity to come to at the THP Fall Golf Outing.

everything looks amazing. I can't wait to get there. Did you like the Palmer or Haig course better?

I have not played either. But from looks alone, I would say Palmer.

sounds like the perfect 4 fybrid/5 iron for me depending on how i'm hitting it then. I doubt I will play from the tips anyway, although it is appealing.

I cannot state enough how my pictures do not do this course justice. The Champion course looks amazing and we think each and every person that joins us this fall will be blown away.
