Others have raved plenty - but the scale, variety, beauty, strategy, and fun this course embodies make it one of the best days of golf one could ever imagine. The start/f...

Gem USA - Best in Area
Totally average in my opinion and overpriced for what you get in the quality of the design. Water on almost every hole. Very much a "here's a shot, execute it" type of te...

58th California - Best in Area
In my opinion, this course is the best public option in the Coachella Valley. Fantastic views of the mountains abound. Real thought must be given to your approach on near...

Desert Willow (Firecliff) 29/04/2021

84th California - Best in Area
Honestly found this course, as much of the golf in the Coachella Valley, forgettable. A 5+ hour round, unwalkable, and, with the exception of the great conditioning, not...

Rustic Canyon 29/04/2021

16th California - Best in Area
This must be the best value in America. Having played this course 3 times, it continues to elude me how this track can be played for such a low price point, or why the re...

Enjoyable layout surrounded by nice homes. Pristine conditions. I love Weiskopf courses and I was not disappointed in this experience. That said, I found much of it to be...

4th New Mexico - Best in Area
What a piece of land! This course swallows you whole. The undulations don't stop. It reminded me of Tobacco Road for a number of reasons, the key difference being that th...

This course throws everything your bag can handle at you with long approaches into the very strong wind (sometimes so strong play becomes impossible), flip wedges downwin...

This Norman course is certainly worth half a day. Where it strengths lie is where Norman's did as a player - on the tee box. Nearly every hole requires a decision on club...

20th Mexico Ranking
Vista Vallarta is a wonderful complex with a satisfactory driving range, putting green, chipping/bunker area, and very good restaurant. The vibe is pure resort course and...

Streamsong (Black) 19/01/2021

6th Florida - Best in Area 99th USA Ranking
A course that revels in the "unfair" with more blind shots than visible ones, endless green complexes. I imagine those playing first for score or test of skill would bick...

3rd Florida - Best in Area 61st USA Ranking 70th North America Ranking
Of the three courses at Streamsong, Red was my least favorite, which speaks more to the overall strength of the resort than this course in particular. It's the most "trad...

On a trip that included Pinehurst, Pine Needles, Tobacco Road and a number of others, this was the best course we played (unanimous among our foursome). The fun factor is...
