Welcome to My Golf Adventures, the website! My name is Morais Miranda and I live in New York and I am a Golf-Aholic, a Golf Aficionado, A Golf Historian, a student of the game and history of golf and a Golf Traveler. On this site I will share with you my experiences and adventures in golf and travel, in a photo-journalist type of diary, and also as a way for me to re-live my adventrues. I will share my experiences and adventures in my quest to play America's and the World's greatest golf courses, and where my game takes me on them. I am using the golf course ranking lists as compiled by Golf Digest and Golf Magazine and I will give my own opinion and rank of these courses. You will see my view point from the photos I capture. I will review and critique these golf courses and I hope you enjoy and also learn from them. Hopefully with your comments and input you can help me in deciding my future golf adventures. This site is still under heavy construction, the first page is pretty much how I want it to be, and under "Golf Courses" only "Bandon Dunes and Royal County Down" are fully complete. All other golf courses will be updated to be the same. This takes time and I have allot of info and pictures to put here.. THANKS... please sign my guest book or send me an email, your input is very valuable....

The Great Ben Hogan
Always striving for perfection
-Golf is a solitary pursuit of an unattainable goal.
-There is a fine line between golf and religion..
-Golf is a microcosm of our life, it is the only place where we can be truely free to ourselves, it is the only place where we show our vulnerability, however, we show it to ourselves and because of it we strive to be better every round we play, just like life, where everyday we try to be a better person.
-Always enjoy what you're doing.
-If you are going to put your time and energy into doing something, do something you love. And when you do it, be the best at it.

At the spectacular 16th Hole at Vale do Lobo in the Algarve, Portugal. This is the most photographed hole in Europe. With the beach, ocean and cliffs you can see why this 230 yard par 3 is what it is, just breathtaking.
