The quarry is a beautiful beautiful, hard course. Its a great venue for the ACE Group Classic.
I know the feeling. I've played Treviso Bay a few times, but the first time was when it first opened and before they played the ACE Classic there last year. It was a LOT of fun watching (a few) of them in the same bad spots I'd been in. Although on the flip side of that, I went to the Shark Shootout this year, and those boys played Tiburon Gold a little better than I did. :)

Never played The Quarry, but I've played next door (Heritage Bay) many, many times. One of my favorites down there.

Best course I've played has to be Blue Rock down the cape. It's an 18 hole par 3 - http://www.redjacketresorts.com/blue...urse/index.cfm
The holes range from 108 to 255, so it does force you to use all your clubs. The fact that I played it a bunch with my grandfather makes it even better to me.

A"best" list with no particular order to rank the courses.

Paa Ko---New Mexico
Black Mesa ---New Mexico
The Dinosaur--Gold Mountain--Mesa AZ
The Bull--Wi.
University Ridges-Wi
The Legends at Bergmount--Wi
All The Capital Hills courses on the RTJ trail-Al
All the Grand National Courses on the RTJ trail Al

I have played "The Quarry" in Texas and found it to be a very interesting course.

The Quarry, Heritage Bay, and Arrowhead are the best public golf courses down here in my opinion. Yes. THE QUARRY IS PUBLIC. I have a ticket to a free foursome at the quarry that I can cash in anytime :). I hear only good things about Heritage Bay. Everyone loves it. It's a challenging course but beautiful and a nice layout. Just like The Quarry. And Arrowhead is the course I live on and work at. Very nice condition for a public course. Great places to play if you're ever down here in Naples.

Re: best golf courses played

Wow, this is tough but I think my Top 7 are

1. Cherry Hills CC - Colorado (Played it a few times, just a classic course, you feel like everything is in it's right place)
2. Ritz Carlton Golf Club Dove Mountain - Arizona (Actually just played this last week and was blown away... granted it was setup for the Accenture Match Play next week which didn't hurt... grandstands and all!)
3. Castle Pines CC - Colorado (One of the hardest I have played... long and strong... miss The International stableford the PGA used to hold here.)
4. Pelican Hill South - California (A beautiful Fazio course that runs down the Pacific)
5. Sherwood CC - California (Challenging course, great Nicklaus)
6. PGA WEST Stadium - California (Maybe not Dyes best stadium since houses run so close on some holes, but a classic design)
7. Kapalua Plantation - Maui (Tough tough course, wind and beauty)

Honorable mention -
Four Seasons Peninsula Papagayo Golf Club - Costa Rica (The most beautiful course I have ever played, a Palmer, not the best course... but absolutely gorgeous)

Re: best golf courses played

Valhalla is a great one to play
Crooked Stick is fabulous
and The Brickyard Crossings is cool just because part of it is inside of Indianapolis Motor Speedway if you are a racefan it is a rally cool experience

The Ocean course is outstanding and of course Caledonia.

Granite Links in MA. Interesting they tell you to watch out for rattle snakes and use your club to find the ball up here.
