TACOMA, Wash. — They say the greens are PGA Tour-caliber … and “they” are Tour players. “We” are not, so our first round at historic Tacoma Country Club could be brutal … or it could be amazing.
Every year, the Northwest Golf Media Association has a year-end banquet at a course the average dumb shit in the membership would never play otherwise. Last year it was at Chambers Bay. It’s been at Everett Country Club, and Seattle Golf Club … nice courses.
Nicklaus designed a course in Incheon City, Korea, which the NWGMA will almost certainly never hit it up for the year-end banquet. But just in case it does, you can get a sneak preview this weekend on your television set when the Presidents Cup settles in there for four days of exhibition golf. It’s not the Ryder Cup.
