Why Forecaddie?

When I was young, my father and I did a lot of stuff together, but more than anything we golfed.

We loved to explore new golf courses. Sometimes they were fancy tracks, often hard and acclaimed by critics, but the places we really loved were fun courses; the interesting ones that left you energized and happy to be alive.

After I graduated college, we played less and less frequently. We were both busy and we few opportunities to get together. When I moved cross country, we ceased playing altogether.

A few years ago, one of us had the idea that we should take a golf trip together. Happily, we busied ourselves with planning every detail and course we would play on our short adventure. We had a great time.

Now, we try to take a golfing vacation every year. And we make a point to seek out those fun courses, the ones that make you happy to be alive. It’s brought us closer together.

That’s the power of golf and of travel — both can bring us together like few other things can. If you have the means, I believe you should seek out and travel for fun golf courses. Preferably with people you care about.

When my father and I started planning our golf trips, we were struck by how difficult it was to find the information we needed. It’s all out there, but spread far and wide across the internet and a handful of books. You have to know where to look, and even then its time consuming. Planning our trips was a total slog.

I created Forecaddie to be the resource that we needed. On Forecaddie, I’ve collected all the information you need to find and play great golf courses, whether on a golf trip or in your own hometown.

This is not a collect of the best courses in the world. Those exist in many other places. Instead, this is a collection of memorable and interesting courses, often in spectacular settings. They are, in a word, fun.

So dive in and go explore what’s out there and experience the power of golf yourself.
