Mikko has an interesting post on Books About Games. It reminded me of a fantasy book I read in the early 1980's called Hobgoblin, which was about a teenager that gets caught up in a role-playing game similar to Dungeons and Dragons. One interesting aspect was the game system: it was a hybrid role playing and card game that looked similar to Magic: the Gathering (10+ years before it was published of course).
Our final round at Bandon was at a new-to-all-of-us course: Sheep Ranch.
Our Thanksgiving day golfing adventure took us to Old Macdonald, probably my favorite course anywhere.
Before we traveled to Bandon Dunes I did a series of emails to my three golfing companions sharing details on the overall experience as well as each course. ...
I eased the foursome into Bandon Dunes golf by booking the amazing Bandon Preserve par 3 course as our first go.
