Golf’s greatest walks are inevitably defined by outstanding terrain, jaw-dropping scenery and memorable individual holes. Without further ado, let’s take a stroll down the fairways. Here are Travelin' Joe's picks for the 10 greatest walks in golf. Go to Gallery.
1. Cypress Point Club -- Pebble Beach, Calif.
It's almost inconceivable that land this stunning was made available for golf. For the lucky few who have access to super-exclusive Cypress, they're privileged to enjoy the best walk in the sport. The trek to the 15th tee, amid wind, waves, deer, gnarled Cypress trees and near-isolation is spiritual.
2. The Old Course at St. Andrews -- St. Andrews, Scotland
If you treasure walking in famous footsteps, this is golf's ground zero. You can be excused if you're shaking in your shoes at the first tee; eventually the nerves steady a bit and you're out and about on a flattish, easy-to-walk parcel dotted with little ripples -- and with divots from centuries of Hall of Famers.
3. Pebble Beach Golf Links -- Pebble Beach, Calif.
The first tee is waaaaay old school -- right in front of the pro shop, where everybody can see your nervous first swing -- but after that, you'll settle into a groove, walking the greatest stretch of cliff-top golf in the game from holes 6 through 10, then returning to the Pacific at round's end. A cartpath-only policy and a classic routing further encourage walkers and the superb caddies top it off.
