Earning the title “Golf Nomad,” Matt Cardis established his footing in golf with many professions: photographer, content creator, travel expert and entrepreneur. However, the online community knows him best for merging his love for travel and golf into a fresh perspective that showcases the culture of American golf and the “modern golfer.”
And it’s called Golf In Your State.
Since its inception in the fall of 2016, Matt has traveled more than 100,000 miles, photographed 300-plus courses and connected with thousands of like-minded golfers. He photographs his love for the sport and its culture throughout his travels. Spending nights in parking lots, truck stops, Interstate rest areas, roadside pullouts and golfers’ driveways, he sleeps anywhere he can so he can continue documenting life on the road.
In December 2018, Cardis traveled to Rams Hill Golf Club for the first time. He described the experience as “getting lost and found” in the desert. In addition to finding himself, Cardis found the idea for a meet-up experience like none other.
As January transitioned to February, the next chapter of Golf in Your State initiated The Highway Golf Series with Rams Hill listed as the first course featured. Our growing golf destination had the privilege to host a “destination immersion.” Consisting of talented professionals ranging from a wedge designer to a surfboard shaper to a golf instructor, The Highway Golf Series with Golf in Your State was one for the books.
We caught up with Matt for a Q&A about his adventures as a successful golf-content creator.
