Nothing's more important than who you invite

A group of buddies could just as easily visit the world's worst golf resort and have a blast as it could travel to Pebble Beach and be miserable. More than lodging, food, weather and even the golf courses, the people you bring are key. Buddies trips take you out of your comfort zone. You're away from home, sleeping less than usual, playing unfamiliar courses, competing hard, drinking copiously. This isn't the time to introduce your pals to a friend who "might" irritate the hell out of them. He will, and the trip will suffer because of it.
