I scratched #1 a month ago at Pebble Beach. It was quickly replaced by Cypress Point after I drove by their entrance...

I've only been playing a few months, so I'm not too educated on courses around the country. As far as my home state is concerned it would have to be Wolf Creek in Mesquite,NV and Shadow Creek here in town. Legends Golf Course in South Africa would be Awesome, I'd love to try the worlds longest par 3.

While you are there you can check out some other dramatic scenery...
If you are looking for a course in Virginia, you absolutely cant go wrong with Primland. It was recently ranked in the top 20 public courses in the nation and in my opinion it puts The Homestead to shame. I've played at Primland multiple times and it has to be the best course I've ever stepped foot on.
Well, I knocked off Nevada a few weeks ago. I played Wolf Creek in Mesquite, NV. What a beautiful, but tough course. It didn't help that I was horrible off the tee that day. I definitely plan on playing it again to redeem myself (luckily it's only a 4-5 hour drive from my where I relocated to). Mesquite seems like it would be a nice place to go on a weekend golf trip, without getting caught up in the craziness in Vegas (which is of course just about an hour away if you decided that's what you wanted to do).
Now that I'm living in Salt Lake City, I've also played several courses here in UT now. I haven't had the chance to play the few that I'd really like to check out. There is definitely an abundance of courses to choose from in the SLC area... and they are all priced very reasonably.
Now that I'm out West.... any suggestions on some must play courses out this way?
I played Wolf Creek 3x & it doesn't get any easier ... it's a beautiful course in the middle of a desert - seems oddly out of place, but thats what makes it so good. My only bucket list golf adventure would be to play in Scotland or Ireland one day ...
