There are few more classic sporting atmospheres than Philadelphia’s Merion Golf Club. The site of the 2013 US Open (where it will host a record 19th USGA Championship), the place is steeped in history, tradition, and an essence that takes you back to the Golden Age of Golf. It’s also ranked 7th in Golf Digest’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses. So there’s that.
I was lucky enough to spend two glorious days at Merion, taking part in their annual Summer Stag Day, and was pegged by A True Golfer to do a write up on my experience. Getting to play one of the world’s most exclusive and renowned clubs was a treat beyond belief. Getting to document and share my experience with words and photos was truly an honor. Read it here.
