Has it really been 10 years that I’ve had this job? Where does the time go?

OK, 2020 has been a long year. It felt like three years in itself. If I were to have charted my golf course visits over the last 20 years in the industry (I wish I would have), 2020 would definitely have seen a spike downward. But, it still feels good to look back and reflect on all the courses — and the people caring for those courses — I’ve visited over the last 10 years.

To celebrate my 10-year anniversary with the magazine and to wrap up this strange 2020, I thought I’d take a look back at some of my favorite covers of the magazine … and some I wish I could get back. Oh, and the team here at Golfdom thought it would be fun to ask some of the regulars in my life to give some feedback on how these 10 years went, from longtime supers to my longtime bartender.

Thank you to everyone who made these 10 years on the magazine possible, especially my family at home and my family in Cleveland at North Coast Media headquarters.
