Re: Best Municipals?Harding Park, San Francisco
I'm hoping to get out the Seattle Area in the spiring of 2013. Will definitely visit this course. I was stationed briefly in Bremerton, WA many years ago in the Navy, but did not play golf there.
Tampa has a few good ones. Rogers Park, Babe Zaharias , and Rocky Point. Wife and I have a Sports Authority discount card and walk 18 holes for 18 bucks on week-ends. Cheaper during week and twilight (12.00 bucks). Good variety of courses. Right now they are in the best shape I have ever seen them in, but they get a little brutal in the summer (greens etc). Kalamazoo Michigan has some great ones also (Milham Park and Eastern Hills).
Aiken Municipal in Aiken, SC another Donald Ross design which is a pleasure to play. People from the North would stay in Aiken when visiting the Masters in the early years, and Aiken became a very quaint getaway for golfers and horse-lovers. We stayed at the Wilcox Inn which was a total delight and commuted to the Masters about 15 miles away.
Wow, I did not know about Chambers Bay. A quick Google revealed it is the 2015 US Open site. I'm now very anxious to see it up close and personal.
