I live in the twin cities (MN) western Suburbs.  

not sure if these are all strictly within 20 miles.   but, all close enough for me to make a 7:30am tee time.   so, I'm counting them.  

1) Windsong Farm (private) - Maple Plain, MN

2) Spring Hill Golf Club (private) - Orono, MN

3) Chaska Town Course (public) - Chaska, MN

4) Olympic HIlls (Private) - Eden Prairie, MN

I live in Charlotte and here's my list of what I think are the best courses here.

#1 Quail Hollow Country Club

#2 Charlotte Country Club

#3 Carolina Golf and Country Club

#4 Carmel Country Club (South Course)

#5 Myers Park Country Club (My Home Course)

What do you think are the best five in your community?


I’m also in Charlotte (Waxhaw actually) but not fortunate enough to play the courses you have played. (Ahem, I’m always open to an invite 😁)

My best based on what I have played are:

1) Providence Country Club

2) Ballantyne Hotel course

3) Springfield

4) Eagles Chase (Marshville)

5) Redbridge


Best I’ve ever played are Pinehurst 2 and Old North State courtesy of work connections.

    • My wife and I will be staying there also. She will be sightseeing at Colonial Williamsburg while the rest of us are golfing.
    • Simply the best! Muirfields
    • Thanks guys, yeah that is definitely something to consider if I go down that route about the pairing and tags for sure @Missouri Swede.
    • Yes, you can manually tag the putts with the iPhone app, the Apple Watch app, or on their Link belt device. (I don’t have the link—I use either the watch or iPhone.) In fact, it’s pretty common for me to adjust the # of putts as I finish a hole, since I often have to add on the tap in putts—I don’t have the patience to let it register a tap in. You do have to pair the putter sensor with the app. If you don’t, the system won’t work at all (just the way they designed the system, I guess). Found this out the hard way: my putter sensor died, and I tried to re-pair it, unsuccessfully. No big deal, I thought. Except next time I went to play (replacement not yet arrived), it wouldn’t let me start the round: “need to pair your putter.”  Next time the putter sensor died, I knew better: ordered replacement, but didn’t un-pair the dead sensor.  Arccos thought I was chipping in every hole, no putts recorded.  I just added the putts manually as I went. So for you, pair the putter sensor at home (a onetime thing), put it away in your desk or wherever—don’t throw it away, because you’ll probably need it sometime in the future. Then add all putts manually, as I did when my sensor died. Here are what the iPhone app and Apple Watch app screens look like (don’t know what Android looks like—I get the impression it’s set up better for Apple): [Yes, I’m on my third sensor now.  First one lasted about 5 months IIRC. Second one only lasted 23 rounds.  Both replaced free under warranty — forget if it’s 1 or 2 years. But I’m a little concerned they both died so quickly.]
