Minnesota Golfer - Fall 2017 - 14

SOUTHERN ESCAPES
The TPC clubhouse is home to Toro,
a restaurant and rum bar featuring PanLatin
cuisine, a " suviche bar " (sushi and
cviche), and a selection of 151 rums.
Sipping the Venezuelan Diplomatico
Reserva, a dark golden molasses rum,
my petite, blue-eyed brunette neighbor
at the bar said, " I'm here for a drink and
dinner-the whole nine yards. "
" I'm here for the golf, " I lamely responded.
BIRDIES
OF PREY
Up the road from the Stadium course, is
Grayhawk Golf Club (grayhawkgolf.com),
home to the Raptor and Talon courses.
The Raptor, a Tom Fazio design opened
in 1995 and renovated two years ago, was
recently awarded the NCAA DI championship
beginning in 2020. Phil Mickelson,
like Crenshaw a three-time NCAA
champ, has been affiliated with the club
since its opening; some of his career
memorabilia adorns the walls of Phil's
Grill inside the clubhouse.
Fazio was brought in to revamp hole
numbers 15, 16 and 17. The 15th, a 305-
437 yard par 4, was rerouted in the opposite
direction, while the 16th, a short
par 3, measures 83-151 yards and offers
a menacing greenside bunker. The 17th
was foreshortened to create a driveable
par 4, measuring 226-331 yards long.
Music is piped into the staging area, adding
a distinctively young and hip vibe
to the golf experience. The Grayhawk
courses are closed (alternately) in late
September and part of October for winter
overseeding.
BOBCATS & BOULDERS
Up the road from Grayhawk is Boulders
Resort & Spa (theboulders.com), home
to two golf courses and a world-class spa
where ancient, gigantic granite boulders
loom over portions of the property, pool
and golf course.
After dinner (a tender beef filet)
and dessert (a " chocolate mess " ), the
chef sent us back to our casitas with a
nightcap, Taylor's
Port. While on the balcony sipping the
