Just off of Tyvola and South Tryon, you can find a golf course whose name recognition is greeted with respect and reverence by top players around the world. Travel further north to the Beatties Ford Road area for a course that is not only universally thought of as one of the best in the world, but hosted a world championship round in 2012 that was the first of four consecutive titles for one of the game’s greatest players. Finally, take a 30-minute drive south from the center of the city to step foot on the home of the sport’s most prestigious title held annually on a picturesque course for 17 straight years.
