"I've started a golf club without real estate called South Bay Golf. We're a bunch of guys who like to have fun playing golf, with no agenda, but we like to create an experience. I think that's what's great about golf is you can totally create your own experience. If you want to keep score, if you don't want to keep score; if you want to play 9 holes, 18 holes, or you want to be competitive. I mean, that's what I really love about golf and my club in general, is that you can create a new experience every day, depending on what you're looking for."

A little #acoursecalledamerica Saturday night #quizzo: Can you name this course? And can you name the course from which it got its name?
🚨🚨🚨LAST MINUTE TEE TIME: Bethpage Black, tmw Sunday May 26th 9.30am, have room for one. Arrive 8.30. Greens recently punched and round isn’t comped, but if interested share with tag #acoursecalledamerica
Have you ever seen an inverted bunker? Me neither. But now you have. 12 at a course in Long Island that doesn’t allow phones so this picture doesn’t exist, for the record. #acoursecalledamerica
From the carefully curated aesthetic of The Bridge, I explored the other side of #thehamptons golfing coin with @jeff.warne85 of @siriusxm_pga_tour_radio . Hopped the ferry for #shelterisland and the original #goathill nine holer. No fuss. Just hit it hard and let the hardpan work its magic. #puregolf #acoursecalledamerica
The Bridge is a damn good golf course on wild terrain, it’s formerly unwalkable layout reworked to roll naturally over the dune-ish landscape. It’s also on what was formerly a road racing track, thus the everywhere car theme. Good as the course might be, I couldn’t stop marveling at the clubhouse and the modern art installations around the course. By many miles, the most unique approach to a golf club I’ve ever encountered. A sports car sculpture in the locker room, with tall glass windows that are NOT mirrored on the others side. Trophies made of engine parts. No dress code. A space pod by the entrance where a bar and lounge await. Full scale race car simulator room in the basement, near the black panther golf bag replete with Uzi, plus millions of dollars of everywhere art, some by member Richard Prince—it’s so out there it works. And for 1.1 million, the first tee is yours.
“Golf is instrumental in my life. I've had some of my best experiences, I've made so many of my great friendships; it's just part of my life. I always laugh because in Scotland, when you ask somebody about someone, they'll say, ‘Oh, well, Tom so and so, yeah, he's John and Mary's son. He works down at the butcher shop and he carries a four.’ So his handicap will be integral to his persona, and I kind of feel like golf is that way with me. The game is integral to who I am.”
— Jimmy Dunne, golf’s most interesting man
