Pine Valley has long been ranked among the top golf courses in existence. In GOLF's 2017-18 ranking of the Top 100 Courses in the World, it took the No. 1 spot, beating out courses like Pebble Beach and St. Andrews. But you can get on Pebble and St. Andrews any day with the right timing (or bank account). Not so with Pine Valley. Except for this Sunday, that is. Pine Valley is not only one of the best tracks on earth, it's also arguably the most exclusive. Only members and their guests can play the iconic 18, and acquiring a membership card is nearly impossible.
But the most special part of the week (and the only one of concern to you, dear reader) are the semi-final and championship matches on Sunday, Sept. 16. Why? Because the prestigious club allows the general public to walk the grounds and witness the final matches.
