So it goes like this… of the courses you've played, you have ten rounds left to play in your life. Where do you play them and, briefly, why? In no particular order… Oakmont - One of my absolute favorites, partly in how unrelenting it is, and partly because of the connection I feel with the place growing up in the area. Plus, I can stop at Oakmont Bakery on the way to and from the course. Pine Needles - One of my favorites and for a course that's not near to me, one that I've played a fair amount. Until Pinehurst #2 was renovated I'd have rated this one well above #2. Bedford Springs - One of the first courses I played before the renovation, and a really nice course now after the renovation. Special memories here. Lake View Country Club - The course I grew up playing years 2-4 of my golf life. Always a pleasure to play there again, despite 17 having a 17-yard-wide fairway. Kiawah Island - One of the few Pete Dye courses I've enjoyed, and a big chunk of that has to do with the scenery and the challenge of playing by the ocean. Caledonia Golf and Fish Club - The Myrtle Beach-area course that I enjoy the most, by far. And one of these days, I'll actually be playing decent golf when I get there… Whispering Woods - It's still a fresh challenge every time I play it, and it takes every club in the bag. The Old Course, St. Andrews - What more do I need to say? I thoroughly enjoyed my round there, and it exceeded my high expectations. North Berwick - The Redan, the first green, the 18th hole, the crazy 16th Biarritz… just a really great and under-rated, FUN course. Camargo Club - One of Seth Raynor's famous template courses, this one has perhaps the best collection of his par threes in the world.
