Knollwood 13/10/2019

18th Illinois - Best in Area
Tremendously underrated is how I would describe Knollwood Club in Lake Forest, IL. A Colt/Allison design dating from 1925, Knollwood has hosted 1956 US amateur, 1982 US...

Chicago 09/10/2019

1st Illinois - Best in Area 14th USA Ranking 14th North America Ranking 24th World Ranking

Cabo del Sol (Ocean) 23/09/2019

2nd Mexico Ranking 50th North America Ranking
This is the best course in Mexico. Better than Diamanté. Dare I say-I would put it on par with Pebble Beach. It combines elements of two of my favorite styles of golf...

Blackwolf Run (River) 23/09/2019

6th Wisconsin - Best in Area
Blackwolf Run River is nearly as good as the Straits Course. Different style of course with river being an inland parkland style layout. Actually, the best course in Ko...

Erin Hills 23/09/2019

5th Wisconsin - Best in Area
Erin Hills is one of those courses I find to be terribly overrated. It’s just long for the sake of being long without any of the redeeming features you would normally fi...

Pinehurst (No.7) 23/09/2019

44th North Carolina - Best in Area
I can’t figure out why No. 7 has fallen so far down in everyone’s rankings. Personally, the only Pinehurst course I liked better was No. 2. No. 7 was certainly the most...
