European Ryder Cup Team Bags Feature Seve Ballesteros – Confirms My Ryder Cup Pick

I’ve picked the European team to win the Ryder Cup every year since I can remember.  I was thinking if perhaps this would be the year I finally picked the USA team.  After seeing the European Team’s bags, my pick is confirmed.

I’ve got a tear in my eyes as I write this…  They’ve put a silouhette of golf and Ryder Cup legend Seve Ballesteros at the top of their bag, so they can see it every time they pull a club.  Inspired by Seve, I think the European team is going to be hard to beat.  They are my pick to win.

Salish Cliffs is located in Shelton, Washington, about 1.5 hours southwest of Seattle. The course opened in September 2011 as part of the Squaxin Island Tribe’s Little Creek Casino/Resort. I’ll be posting my golf travel review of Little Creek’s resort soon.

Salish Cliffs Golf Club Overview

Gene Bates is the course architect for Salish Cliffs.  I’ve played many Bates designs, and I can honestly say this is the best one I’ve played so far.  The previous Bates designs I’ve experienced don’t have the dense forest and interesting terrain that Salish does.  Bates did a fantastic job utilizing the terrain to make a fun, challenging and beautiful track.
