The is a popular maxim when discussing the minimalist school of golf course design: More often than not, except for the most pure of linksland, that a lot of maximalism goes into the creation of a “minimalist” aesthetic. And so it was at TPC Stonebrae, where renowned minimalist David McLay-Kidd set about moving heaven and earth (but mostly earth) to create such an experience in the hills high above the city of Oakland.

Such a location affords players views of the San Francisco Bay from many points. Playing alongside the descending hillside creates many adventurous holes, such as No. 12, which — despite being more than 600 yards from the back tees — almost seems reachable. Be wary when taking big swings, however: Although the course’s founders aimed for a Scottish feel on the course, balls that fade too far right may end up in the neighboring Park Ukraina.
