According to this list of iconic landmarks, I still have 3 places to visit to complete my golfing life.  I have never been to Oakmont, Beth Page Black, or visited Merion.  I hope to complete these in the future.  But  of Golf Digest has put together a “who’s who of golf landmarks” and strongly encourages us to make it our quest to see all 13.  Does anybody want to invite me to Oakmont?  Anyway, it would just be fun to be in all these wonderful places.  I would like to point out that the famous “Cypress Tree” in Pebble Beach is an Australian Pine.  Sorry, America.

The Barclays visits Bethpage Black this week, a course so brutal that a first-tee marquee infamously warns players on the impending difficulty. The sign has become as popular as the course itself, with many a golfer stopping to snap a photo of the post. Which got us thinking: What are the most famous landmarks in golf?

12th at Augusta.

An area so sacred that it has multiple landmarks — Rae’s Creek, the Hogan and Nelson Bridges — within its confines.
 

2. Swilcan Bridge, Old Course at St. Andrews.

The Swilcan Bridge.
Astonishing not only because the game’s greats pass over the stones at St. Andrews’ 18th, but the links’ public nature gives the common man a chance to walk through history as well.
 

3. Putter Boy, Pinehurst No. 2.

Putter Boy

Originally known as “Sundial Boy” until the 1970s, the statue was briefly located in the World Golf Hall of Fame. However, it returned to the Pinehurst clubhouse in 1990, residing once more by the Pinehurst putting green.
