I would play any goat ranch in the world if I could have some time with my mom again. That being said, I would rather choose the course, Augusta.

Any course? Definitely chose the course and play with random people.

I'm rather solitary any how, so I end up playing with a lot of different characters each year. 

Picking the course would be a once in a lifetime chance because I never figure to cough up the kind of money it would take to play one of the world's best courses. Think it would have to be The Old Course.

For those of you choosing the course OR the playing partners, WHERE or WHO are you choosing?

I'd choose the course. I'd likely have to choose a place I haven't played before, though one I know won't disappoint. Pine Valley, most likely, but that place will eat you up if you're not prepared. Augusta National, some part of your game had better be on point, but you could get it around. Cypress Point, perhaps? I'd be good with any of the three, TBH. Whichever had the best forecast for the day, I guess. 😄

I think this one is pretty easy. I would choose the golf course. I'll take my chances with the playing partners.

I am choosing Augusta National. Its not the best of the architectural masterpiece golf courses (though its pretty dang good), but its the least likely the I will ever have the chance to play on otherwise...so that's what I would go with. Plus I could watch the masters every year knowing I played that course and remember what it was like.

I enjoy both but since I can't sit on the fence, I'll take playing with my regular group at a completely random golf course.    This year, of  the 55 rounds I played, we played 40 different courses.

If talking a single day, then take the course - could be any truly bucket list course.  If talking about a weekly occurrence, take the buddies - life's too short.

I'm going to change my answer.  I think I read Erik's question incorrectly.  I'll go for the random course and play with Arnold Palmer, Ben Hogan and Phil Mickelson.  And if we all have to play a goat track in the middle of nowhere so be it... it'll be a change of pace for those 3 guys.

Not a Tiger fan, though I do admire his comeback from multiple surgeries.  Besides I think those other guys would be more interesting to banter with... eh, maybe not Hogan.  But I want to ask him about his book and swing.  And see if I can get him to sip a Arnold Palmer afterwards in the grill.

Two of those guys are dead. You can't play with them.

Then I'll go with Phil Mickelson, Gary McCord and Erik Barzeski.

Funny.  Kinda.  Perhaps I can play with those boys on a Mexican goat  track on Dias de los Muertos.  How do you say "Fore!" in Spanish?  And now I'll try to get Hogan to sip a good tequilla... loosen him up a little and let him try his swing with a sheet of glass fitted over his head.

    • Yes for me its the opposite I play 60-70% of my Golf solo ...which I enjoy ..its my workout -mental health-work on my game .... sometimes if I have a comp coming up I really hope to do well in I'll play full 18 hole round and tee off 2x to 3x balls off each hole and usually add another ball or too when it comes to my short game .... is a real workout but I find it brilliant for endurance to my game hitting 200+ shots in a round ... (still have just one ball I keep a score to...) I am lucky to have a total population in my region of much less than 50k yet 5x courses I can play including my own for less than $30..weekdays usually very easy to just turn up without booking and get out .... you can decide your pace , tees ,go for those hero shots ,focus just on your game ... unlike my last monthly medal where one of the foursome found out I was a  fulltime ASX Sharetrader so wanted to talk about the sharemarket he was also trading which is fine but next minute my mind was thinking about the market(which it does 40hrs+ pw) and drove the ball OB !! my own mental weakness fault..  
    • Like I was saying he's under the radar but would have played well at the Pres cup ....now maybe  in the top 25 in the world .. will make the next Masters..... >>>>>>>>>>> When it comes to motivation, Ryan Fox didn’t glean much from being bypassed for Presidents Cup captain’s pick a few weeks back. However, as he navigated St. Andrews’ Old Course to the tune of 4-under 68 and a one-shot victory Sunday at the Alfred Dunhill Links, Fox was spurred on by something else: his late pro-am partner. “To be honest the only person I can really think of at the moment is Warnie,” Fox said on the 18th green afterward. Fox, the 35-year-old son of New Zealand rugby player Grant Fox, had paired with Australian cricket legend Shane Warne a few times in this event, including last year when the duo finished second. That marked the last appearance for Warne, a regular at the Dunhill Links who died from a suspected heart attack last March at age 52. “There was definitely some extra motivation there this week,” Fox added later. “Maybe not so much the Presidents Cup, but definitely to try to do something special for Warnie … and I'm pretty proud to have been able to accomplish that.” Fox, who ended last year at No. 213 in the world rankings, is now expected to rise inside the top 25, 
    • Obviously Fox saw the discussions here and proved a point yesterday
    • It's been a long time since I've played alone, but I'm looking forward to doing it again one day. I like it as an intermediate zone between the range and golf with other people. I find it much easier to play alone, and it allows me to practice shots I otherwise might not think to try if I was on the range. Added bonus that it's very peaceful and low stress, and it's a nice thing to mix into the routine.
    • I quit because I have to. It's kind of difficult to golf through 3 feet of snow. Right now my issue is a lot of family demands and very little light. Also I often have issues with heightened expectations when I haven't been playing great as of late.  Since becoming an avid golfer, I haven't really quit golf, I've just put it on pause.
