Chambers Bay to Cabot Cliffs: Top golf destinations to visit in 2015

2015 is shaping up to be an exciting year in golf. The U.S. Open heads to a brand new venue in the Pacific Northwest at Chambers Bay.

Meanwhile, in the Maritimes of Canada, one of the most anticipated courses in recent memory is scheduled to open: Cabot Cliffs in Cape Breton.

I discussed these courses and more as the top destinations for golf in 2105 on Morning Drive:
