Streamsong (Red) 23/09/2019

3rd Florida - Best in Area 61st USA Ranking 70th North America Ranking
Let me start this by saying I seem to be the only person who doesn’t think streamsong is fantastic. Generally not a very interesting course. The fantastic panoramas fea...

The Links at Spanish Bay 23/09/2019

46th California - Best in Area
Spanish Bay is a great example of how bad greens can ruin an entire course. The greens are too small and overly undulated. There are some good holes on the property a...

Torrey Pines (South) 23/09/2019

26th 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) 22/09/2019

24th 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 22/09/2019

14th 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 22/09/2019

9th 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) 22/09/2019

35th 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) 22/09/2019

27th 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 22/09/2019

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...

Ravisloe 22/09/2019

39th 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

31st 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

23rd 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

24th 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,...
