TPC Harding Park 01/03/2022

47th California - Best in Area
TPC Harding Park is a fine course that will undoubtedly satisfy your golfing appetite, but it fails to deliver anything close to pulse racing like so many of its big brot...

TPC Scottsdale (Stadium) 10/02/2022

35th Arizona - Best in Area
I had the privilege of playing this course four weeks prior to the Waste Management, when the course had more or less been built out with the stands you see on TV; I’ve b...

Mountain Lake 07/02/2022

9th Florida - Best in Area
This course is the first template course I ever played, and the reason for my love of golf architecture. Those sentimental reasons aside, this is an absolute gem of a cou...

Fieldstone 07/02/2022

3rd Delaware - Best in Area
When I first played Fieldstone, I couldn’t believe how a course this good could have escaped recognition, much less word of mouth but I guess that speaks to the quality o...

Kingsbarns 06/02/2022

2nd Fife - Best in Area 7th Scotland Ranking 16th Britain & Ireland Ranking 43rd World Ranking
If Kingsbarns were not next to the Old Course, or even on that side of the Atlantic, I’m certain it would be higher in the rankings. Challenging, fun, and scenic, it is t...

Erin Hills 06/02/2022

5th Wisconsin - Best in Area
Few courses have left more an indelible impression on me than Erin Hills. If you’ve read about the course’s history and mystique as so many have since its hosting the US...

Gamble Sands 06/02/2022

1st Washington - Best in Area 91st USA Ranking
While it may not be the most architecturally significant, nor the most challenging, Gamble Sands might be the most fun you’ll ever have on a golf course. Situated high in...

Country Club of Fairfield 04/02/2022

1st Connecticut - Best in Area
Like all Raynor tracks, Fairfield is very fun and very playable. For what feels like a small piece of land, the routing is fantastic, making the most of the topography an...

Pebble Beach 31/01/2022

2nd California - Best in Area 9th USA Ranking 9th North America Ranking 17th World Ranking
The round is long, the greens fee expensive, and despite being public, getting a tee time is no easy task… but Pebble Beach is still very worth it. Few courses match its...

Pound Ridge 27/01/2022

52nd New York - Best in Area
Pound Ridge is the answer to a question that starts with “If you give a man a bulldozer…”. I found some holes to be gimmicky, others to be quirky, and many to be downrigh...

Mid Ocean Club 27/01/2022

1st Bermuda Ranking 2nd Caribbean Ranking
Almost as good, as good gets… though I’m certain if I played it once or twice more, I’d hate myself for not having scored it a six. What’s most remarkable about MOC is ho...

Whiskey Creek 26/01/2022

15th Maryland - Best in Area
Whiskey Creek is a course I’ve played more than a dozen times… and with each round, I’ve felt the course fall more and more out of favor. That’s not to say it isn’t a goo...

Bulle Rock 26/01/2022

7th Maryland - Best in Area
Bulle Rock is as advertised - difficult, good conditioning, and every bit of Pete Dye. It’s certainly worth the price of admission as a daily fee course, and while it mer...
