  • The Masters
    • Why?: c’mon..
    • April 6 – 9, Augusta, GA

The PGA TOUR wraparound season has 49 events in all across the USA, Canada and Europe. Don’t take our personal favorites as the end all be all. Of those 49 stops, 23 states are represented. Major cities include Vegas, NYC, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, LA, Austin, San Diego, Tampa, Miami, New Orleans and Charlotte. If you haven’t figured it out already, in order to host a TOUR event it has to be WARM! Because nobody wants to go to Toronto in February. Leaving you no excuse not to take a summer trip to the Milwaukee metro for the 2017 U.S. Open.

Be sure to check out the PGA TOUR in your neck of the woods. Or, venture out! PGA TOUR events are great for vacations because you’ve got four days to pick from making it easy to intertwine it with other plans you may have.
