Just saw the list of qualifying sites for the Women’s Open and compared them to the LPGA schedule. Totally incompatible. They used to have one close to an LPGA event (usually the Monday after) for convenience. Most players would use that venue. Not any more.
Also, Sebonack Golf Club, the site of The Open, is a good ways out on Long island. Forget about finding a reasonable priced place to stay for the caddies. Renting a house isn’t an option either. They’re asking astronomical sums. Then there’s the traffic during the Summer season. Nightmare! The only saving grace is the 3 million dollar purse of which most will never get a taste.
There is another option though. I hear if you’re willing to pitch a tent, you can get a spot in a campground for cheap.

Bubba Watson Replaces His Golf Cart With An Awesome Hovercraft – Forget the golf, this would be awesome to drive. Might be a little pricy though to replace the standard cart with a fleet of these even at the most prestigious of clubs.
