Re: best golf courses played

Being from Wisconsin, I so want to play Milwaukee CC, but it's SUPER HARD to get on without knowing a member.
Just played Interlachen in Minneapolis last weekend and what an experience it was. Definitely in the same category as Riviera, Butler National, and Sherwood CC that I have played.

Re: best golf courses played

IMO, Pumpkin Ridge is good, but over rated. I think the Great Blue is tougher and just as good and usually better in the winter, (lol, but not by much). With that said, I guess it depends on what one thinks is BEST. For me, I don't care about the club house that much, (nice to have but not that important to me) or how green the couse is. I like courses that play tough, make you think and excute different types of shots, have roll out to the point that it can ruin a good drive, deep greenside bunkers, fairway bunkers is collectable positions on the fairways, in short ANYTHING but easy.

Of the private clubs I've played in the Portland/Vancouver area, Willamette Valley and Royal Oaks--I haven't played them all.

The best muni course I've played in the Portland/Vancouver area would be
Heron Lakes-tends to get soggy/muddy in the winter
Stone Creek-best winter course in the area
OGA
Camas Meadows-in Camas Wa and can be shabby in the winter and tends to be over priced in the summer.
Chehalam Glenn-little tricked up, but good.

Best muni courses I've played in Ore
Gearhart Links-Seaside
Ocean Dunes-Florence
Bandon Crossings-Bandon
Haven't played Bandon yet
Tetherow-Bend
Juniper-Bend
Indian Creek-Hood River
Skamania Lodge-Stevensen

I'm sure others could add more. The only place I've golfed other than Or/Wa is SLC Ut which reminds me much of Portland also with very good muni courses that are reasonablly priced.

Reading others posts, heck I'd just be giddy to drive in the parking lot of many of those mentioned.

Many famous members, all the Mannings, Dan Marino(current club champ)
Same here. Beautiful course and pretty cool setup. It was very busy the day we played. I believe they had 15 people play that day

Re: best golf courses played

1.) TPC Sawgrass
2.) Plantation Course at Kapalua (the most beautiful place I've ever been in the world; just played terribly so it doesn't get ranked higher)
3.) World Woods Pine Barrens
4.) Lake Nona
5.) Dye Course at PGA Golf Club

This list may be completely different by the end of the summer. I've got tournaments scheduled at Orange County National, Innisbrook Copperhead, and Black Diamond Quarry.

Best course i've played at. It's up in the mountain behind town. It's just beautiful. & it's bloody challenging. Two days in a row that 2nd hole just crushed my golfing soul. Can't wait to go back!
