The timing of this blog post might seem curious, given the United States’ recent loss in the Ryder Cup. However, we feel that as proud Europeans here at findagolfbreak.com, it’s a good time to be magnanimous in victory by affirming that America remains an emphatically brilliant place to tee off.
America, of course, has given us no shortage of legendary names in golf, including two of the most storied names in the sport who were in action at Le Golf National – Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
Unfortunately, they also now rank one and two as the players to have suffered the most losses in Ryder Cup history – Mickelson leading that particular ‘charge’ with 22 in total. However, there’s equally no doubt about the incredible part that the duo – together with the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Walter Hagen and Amy Alcott – have played in making the United States one of the world’s most admired golfing nations.
A remarkable inheritance of celebrated golf courses
Golf may not have originated in America, but the sport remains central to national culture and prestige, played by Presidents, seasoned athletes and ordinary fans alike. It is said to be played by almost a tenth of the country’s population, and is broadcast on major television networks including Golf Channel, NBC, ESPN, CBS, TNT and Fox.
Such famous courses as East Lake, Oakland Hills, Pebble Beach and Augusta – which hosts the US Masters itself – have all contributed to golfing’s American dream that continues to make holidays in the States among the most in-demand golf breaks worldwide.
