If you feel a deep connection to golf, you're likely familiar with -- and have probably played -- some of the game's golf course shrines.
But you can also have some incredibly meaningful experiences in your travels without setting foot on a golf course.
Take, for example, visiting the grave of Bobby Jones, which many Masters participants will do this week before they tee off at Augusta National.
The next time you're in downtown Atlanta, take the five-minute ride to Oakland Cemetery.
There, you'll find the gravesite of the late, great Robert Tyre "Bobby" Jones.
You can pay your respects and tee up or place a golf ball beside his headstone for good luck.
Then, across the street and overlooking the cemetery is Six Feet Under Pub & Fish House, where you can ponder the man's grand slam, his founding of Augusta National and the Masters, and his overall contribution to the game...all while enjoying some incredibly good fish stew.
Some might call it corny, but I think it's one of the golfiest off-course experiences in the word.
What are the coolest or most meaningful off-course experiences you've had?
