The Future 45

A bucket list, of sorts, as I blatantly rip off a similar concept called The Next Fifty over at my favourite golf course architecture website Golf Club Atlas.

I've broken down my dream list into three groups of fifteen, with Canada, the United States and the rest of the world all represented.

Thankfully, most of the great private clubs in Canada and the rest of the world are accessible to non-members so I've not restricted myself in any fashion in those two groups. However, the elite private clubs in the United States are a different matter altogether and many are simply out of reach for mere mortals like myself. I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed!

I have not played any of the following courses but hope to visit all of them at some point in my life.
