Road T fPacking upor a Pac-12rip


The West Coast offers one of the best


combinations of football and golf in the country BY KEVIN MERFELD


Hey SEC, you can camp out all week to stake out your tailgating spot in the sweltering southern heat and brag about your seven straight na-


tional championships while chowing down on your barbeque all you want. Is that really better than playing a U.S. Open course like Chambers


Bay before getting in some pregame sailgating on Lake Washington? Or determining which is the best public course in the country—Peb- ble Beach or Pacific Dunes—before watching top-10 powers Stanford or Oregon? Or deciding how many of the 200 courses in the Greater Phoenix area you want to tackle before taking in a game in the unique desert setting of Sun Devil Stadium? You can play Top 100 Courses throughout the Pac-12—on the


ocean, in a towering forest, on majestic mountains, in a beautiful des- ert. And you can do it while also catching an entertaining, tradition- filled brand of football. There’s a reason both golf and football use yards, right? There’s no


reason why you can’t enjoy both in the fall. So let’s start planning your next Pac-12 road trip.
