  • Looking for a good value in golf this fall or winter? Try the Alabama/Florida coast.

  • Read our review of newly renovated PGA National, which was the stage for the 1983 Ryder Cup, 1987 PGA Championship and 1982-2000 PGA Senior Championship.

  • THE WOODLANDS, Texas – The forecast this week for the Champions Tour's Administaff Small Business Classic is, well, pretty good. Highs in the 80s, lows in the 60s with only a slight chance of rain: that's pretty good around here.

  • HOUSTON – Sometimes I enjoy attending Champions Tour events more than regular PGA Tour events – even majors. This, I'm pretty sure, will be one of those weeks.

  • The U.S. team's dramatic comeback attempt at last week's Ryder Cup might have come up just short, but Ryder Cup fever doesn't have to end there.

  • HONOLULU – For golf fans, the Ryder Cup is at or near the top of the list of can't-miss TV golf events.

  • HALF MOON BAY, Calif. -- The 36 holes of Half Moon Bay Golf Links are just another reason the northern California coast is probably my favorite overall golf destination.

  • San Diego can be expensive, but here's proof it can be had on a budget

  • ARLINGTON, Texas -- With football season right around the corner, I've been busy this week scouting out where to play golf, where to eat, where to stay and where to amuse one's self in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

  • HARRIS, Mich. – The talk up here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is all about this week's PGA Championship at Whistling Straits and, of course, whether or not Tiger Woods will be a factor.
