Torrey Pines (South) 23/09/2019

25th California - Best in Area
I really loved Torrey Pines. Great views of the ocean overlooking cliffs and a challenging yet playable design. Definitely worth it if you can snag a teetime.

PGA West (TPC Stadium) 23/09/2019

23rd California - Best in Area
Typical early Pete dye design. Most of the hallmarks are here. Railroad ties, outrageously deep bunkers, mounding, and an island green. Personally I prefer the Nicolas...

Spyglass Hill 23/09/2019

10th California - Best in Area
The early holes on the ocean are some of the best along the coast in Monterey. I just wish they came later in the round. Spyglass subsequently turns inland and takes on...

Pasatiempo 23/09/2019

8th California - Best in Area 63rd USA Ranking 72nd North America Ranking
Pasatiempo was the unexpected star of my trip to Monterey earlier this year. A MacKenzie gem. He actually lived on the course at the end of his life. Feels like steppi...

TPC Scottsdale (Stadium) 23/09/2019

28th Arizona - Best in Area
TPC is a good golf course but don’t expect it to look like it does on TV without all the stands erected. Not really a traditional desert course. If you’re looking for th...

Troon North (Monument) 23/09/2019

26th Arizona - Best in Area
Troon North is probably the best of the public golf available in the greater Scottsdale area. I prefer monument slightly over pinnacle, but long for the days when I f...

Desert Highlands 23/09/2019

3rd Arizona - Best in Area
Best course I’ve played in AZ. Site of the original skins game. Surprisingly narrow if you don’t choose the right tee. Many elevated tee boxes allowing me to majestica...

Glen Club 22/09/2019

37th Illinois - Best in Area
Generally uninspired, run-of-the-mill modern design on the site of the former Glenview Naval air station.

Ravisloe 22/09/2019

36th Illinois - Best in Area
Ravisloe is as a classic Donald Ross design that was private for nearly 100 years. It maintains many of the Ross design elements. I only wish I had been able to play...

Chicago Highlands 22/09/2019

27th Illinois - Best in Area
I ranked Chicago Highlands average only because it is well-maintained. The golf course is absolutely terrible. This used to be a landfill and I think I would rather v...

TPC Deere Run 22/09/2019

25th Illinois - Best in Area
TPC Deere Run is a blast to play. It boggles my mind how low the pros shoot here as I always seem to have trouble. There really are not any weak holes here. Some of...

Bull Valley 22/09/2019

21st Illinois - Best in Area
I am an unabashed Bull Valley fan! The course has many interesting holes and is certainly a challenge to play. Deserves a higher rating by the larger publications an...

Rich Harvest Farms 22/09/2019

20th Illinois - Best in Area
Rich Harvest Farms seems to be very polarizing among golf aficionados. Many of the larger publications have it ranked very highly. I disagree with its high position,...

Cog Hill (No.4) 22/09/2019

15th Illinois - Best in Area
Former host to the Western open now known as the BMW championship. After the course was remodeled, many of the PGA TOUR pros were quite vocal about faults with the re-d...

Medinah (No.1) 22/09/2019

12th Illinois - Best in Area
Medinah No. 1 seems to have garnered some additional attention after it’s remodel following the Ryder Cup. I can’t figure out why. It is short, bland, and generally u...

Flossmoor 22/09/2019

10th Illinois - Best in Area
A great classic design with a lot of history in Chicago south suburbs. Many of the greens are not very large, but they are very very quick, and have some very severe slo...
