And even if He three-putted, God couldn’t get angry because even He had to be overwhelmed by what He had created. “No, it isn’t irreverent to talk of God and a golf course in the same breath, not a golf course located halfway to heaven at the base of the statuesque Three Sisters.

“If you want to play golf on a scenic, well-groomed course, Tokatee is the place.”
“From the moment you turn off the main road until you walk off the 18th green, you realize that the concept of keeping the entire facility as natural and as peaceful as possible has been very successfully carried through.
