WBGD’s Best of 2017: 10 Amazing Memories

0

Dear 2017,

We will never forget you — no one can take these memories from us. There were so many special people and places. The golf and food was incredible — we will write songs about the arepas in Colombia, poems about the mussels in Nova Scotia and love letters for the margaritas in Cabo. The strip steak at Reynolds Lake Oconee lives forever, the pints of Guinness in Dublin were poured by angels and the seafood on Seabrook Island, South Carolina was fit for Neptune.

The golf we played and saw, oh the golf. In chronological order — we keep these moments close to our heart until the end of time.
