The only true links course I've played (or heard of) in Canada is Cabot Links on the east coast.
Both Eagles Nest & Pipers Heath would be two of the better links style courses in and around the GTA though.
I had high expectations for Greywalls and thoroughly enjoyed it...great shape and incredible views with lots of elevation changes. However from a golf standpoint I thought TimberStone had more of a wow factor. Only negative was the 4 greens that were in really bad condition. Sweetgrass was nice too but definitely a distant third to the others.
Took longer than planned but finally made it to the U.P.....here's my updated list (in order):
Grand Traverse Bear
Shanty Creek Legends
Next up.....western Michigan.
Boyne - Hills*
Treetops - Masterpiece*
*Great courses (although not the best) but ideal for 36 because you could change it up with Heather & Signature. Personally I would sub in Elk Ridge for Treetops.
Great list.....now you have me considering the U.P for next summer.
Totally agree with your top 3...only change I would make would be to slide Black Lake into the #4 spot. I thought it was an amazing track!
Headed to Mesquite next month....already have Wolf Creek booked but will only have time for one more round. Can anyone make a recommendation.....Casablanca or Falcon Ridge perhaps? How does Conestoga match up?
We get down to Phoenix/Scottsdale every other year or so...just can't beat it. My favorite so far has to be Troon North....hope to play We-Ko-Pa next visit though.
Have they started putting homes up around Vista Verde yet?
