Extreme Golf: 2 Courses in one day!

CPAs and accountants love to play golf--and the game often is used to strike that next 'big' deal! However, who in their right mind would think you could play two courses miles and miles apart from one another in the same day?

A new service from a resort company in Scottsdale, AZ (one of the nation's primo golf capitals) is using helicopters to transport players from course to course in a single day. Cost for the day trips range from $450 and $925 per golfer, including transportation and green fees.

The trip, though, is not for the faint-hearted--although it could be ideal for the duffer in all of us. Those who have ridden on the trip report sudden dips and explosive takeoffs, not to mention the landings.

Perhaps we should stick to the links in our own backyard?
