My band is playing in Pinehurst tonight at a wedding rehearsal, so I thought it was only appropriate to write a Pinehurst themed golf song. The last few years I’ve had the pleasure of going to Pinehurst a few times a year to perform or to play in golf tournaments. The Carolina Golf Hall of Fame is there as well and I’m hoping my friend Howard Ward, a wonderful writer who has carried the golf voice of Pinehurst will get the nod this year.
“The Golf God and Pinehurst” is about how if there is a golf god, he’s living in Pinehurst.
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
