What's that one course that sticks out in your mind as the best place you've ever played. That one course you could play at every day for the rest of your life and be happy at. I don't really have a favorite, but I know a lot of people do. What are your thoughts?

I must agree, what a great course! You are definitely lucky to live so close to the hole!

I just played Mystic Rock at Nemacolin yesterday. It was the site of the 84 Lumber Classic. By far the nicest I have played.

Pebble Beach, Spyglass, Spanish Bay

It's official, I just returned from Carmel, California where I played Pebble Beach, Spyglass and the Links Spanish Bay. As you may know, the Greens Fee's are significant, sometimes you just have to say, It's not about the money!

#1 Pebble Beach is simply incredible, the feeling you get when you walk onto the first tee is amazing (Gallery of about 100 people watching) the views, the changes in elevation, the professionalism of the staff is second to none. The course conditions on the other hand are average IE: #1 , #2 and #3 greens are in terrible condition, one is a bent grass green that has never really grown, the others are patch work. Just forget about that and enjoy the rest of the experience, yes it's memorable and it will be the an EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME.

#2 Spyglass From the Pacific ocean to the pines this course takes you another fantastic journey. I personally loved the layout and course conditions, we had blast playing Spyglass. About 1 hour before our tee time we received a call that we could play Cypress Point an exclusive Private club in Monterey, CA. We could not cancel our tee time at Spyglass, oh well. 3/4's of the round feels like Pinehurst only with more changes in elevation. Loved it!

#3 Links at Spanish Bay Surprisingly, this was our sleeper pick of the 3. The course conditions were the best of the 3 and several holes along the Pacific Ocean were impressive. The service at the Inn at Spanish Bay was also "Off the Charts - Good". Only negative was there is no driving range, shuttle to Spyglass. Undulating Fast greens are the staples of Spanish Bay. Once again we loved it, you will see deer walking around the course all day, just incredible. Don't forget to catch the Bag piper at dusk each evening!

we were here for a week, I can answer some questions if you have one!

Enjoy!

i havent played many great courses but the best and most enjoyable so far has been Flamborough Head GC in North Yorkshire. Played 2 rounds in the day and it was very very windy being on the coast. Loved every single minute of it. Great views over the cliffs. Compared to most good/great courses it will be way down the list but it was my first Links course. Awesome !!!

Here is one of the most scenic courses I've ever seen. Haven't played it in several years, but it's just about 5 miles south of my home. Arrowhead Golf Club, semi-private.

Doral Resort & Spa - Miami, FL

Believe it or not Doral has 5 golf courses!

The Blue Monster is the primary draw. It's a great golf course with terrific finishing hole. Although it lost a bunch of tree's over the last few years, it's still pretty difficult.

The White Course - this is Greg Normans design. It's a wide open layout with crushed cochina shells in place of rough. It's almost like a fine, hard, white sand. There is always plenty of wind and a few tricky par 3's.

The Red Course and Gold Course - are both located at the resort and are fun golf courses, always in pretty good shape.

The Silver Course - is located a short shuttle drive away and has it's own club house. I like the layout!

Enjoy Doral, I did!
