Tobacco Road - Sanford, NC
"I want every hole to exude the spirit of the game." That was Mike Strantz's vision when he created Tobacco Road Golf Club. Opening in 1998, the land was previously a tobacco farm and a sand mine. Today the course is one of the nation's most uncompromising and bold designs.
With a combination of calculated risk taking and good ball striking, I found myself sneaking under par after a birdie on #14. Unfortunately, I would find trouble and some 3 putts on the remaining 4 holes and limp into the clubhouse at +3. I was this close from successfully navigating "The Road." Either way, Tobacco Road is one fun golf ride.
