Probably the best courses I've played so far are the 3 at Kapalua Bay in Hawaii.


I lived on Kauai for a bit and had the pleasure of playing the 18 hole Prince and 27 hole Makai courses at Princeville a couple times. Probobly the best golf experience ive had (and will until i get back there). My alltime favorite hole was a par 3 on the Ocean 9 on the Makai course that has a cove between the tee box and the green that you have to hit over. Thats just awsome!

Atlanta Athletic Club is tops for me. I also loved the Golf Club at North Hampton in North FL.

Had the privilege of playing Merion CC in Ardmore, PA back in the early 80's. No yardage markers, wicker basket flag sticks, and caddies. I tried to hit my 1-iron from the plaque in the middle of the 18th fairway where Hogan famously hit his. Of course I had far worse results than he did. What an awesome experience though.

For me it's Sanford golf course in Sanford, NC.

I've played at Quail Ridge, Sanford, Carolina Lakes (way too many houses on every course) and Knights Play.

The girlfriend likes Knights play because it's a 3-par course and she doesn't care for the 500 yard long courses. I like it well enough but my short game sucks so it kills me to go there knowing that I can't touch my driver or 3 wood.

 

My opinion might change when everything starts turning green again though. I started playing golf at the start of the year and I still haven't played on a course with a green fairway yet.

Muirfield Village has been my top play

post #366 of 429

I would have to say it's a toss up between Spyglass Hill and the TPC Las Vegas.  Spyglass, with all the ocean views and the wildlife (deer, sea lions) was an amazing experience to a landlocked guy like myself.  TPC Vegas was my first experience with desert golf, a great course and don't forget your "rock club".

I haven't traveled much outside of Michigan, but within the state the three best I've played in order are:

1. Arcadia Bluffs

2. Elk Ridge

3. Detroit Golf and Country Club

 

Like I said, haven't travled much, but from what I've heard and read Arcadia Bluffs holds up against any course in the country.  I personally can't imagine a course getting much better than that.

If your from michigan, try heading up to treetops sometime. They have 4 amazing courses with dramatic elevation change, and probably the best par 3 course in the world(no joke). All are  in amazing conditions, and usually they run some sort of special where you get a round on all 5 courses and 2 nights stay for $300ish. Garauntee you will have a blast.

Here are my top 5:

 

1)  Spring Hill (Orono, MN)

2)  The Golf Club of Tennessee (somewhere in TN)

3)  Troy Burne (Hudson, WI)

4)  Rush Creek (Maple Grove, MN)

5)  Tournament Club of Iowa (IA)

 

Spring Hill is an amazing track in MN, but besides that I haven't gone anywhere else that is world class like many of the tracks listed above.  My only connection that I have going for me is that my cousin just got married and his father-in-law is a member at Augusta National, so hopefully sometime I will get to play out there that would be the greatest round of my life.  It has come in handy so far because he got us free tickets to the Masters whenever we want, and he even took us into the clubhouse!

I really think Pumpkin Ridgeis a good playgrount.However,sometimes,it is a little busy.

I haven't had the chance yet to play any high end courses but our local course in Northern Maine is one of my favorites, Mars Hill Country Club. There is a small course in Winter Harbor, ME I love to play called Grindstone Neck. The views are great, right on the ocean and cheap to play. Not always in the best condition but love it because it is where I learned with my Grandfather who taught me how to play. Natanis Golf Course down by Augusta is a great course, I have only played Arrowhead as that is where the state team and individual championships are held. Coaches get to play with the kids there so I always enjoy heading down there.

Riviera and LA North probably two of the best courses in the world.  I personally like Riv a little more, but both are awesome.  I would love to play there on a regular, but that ain't happening any time soon, haha.  :(
