89th California - Best in Area
When one thinks of "golden age" courses in Los Angeles, the list seems to start and stop with LACC, Riviera and Bel-Air. However, do not sleep on Saticoy, which takes des...

77th California - Best in Area
LMGC is one of the most underrated golf courses in Northern California, which isn't surprising given its proximity to such luminaries as Olympic, Cal Club and SFGC. That...

I feel sorry for the golf courses in Southwestern Oregon as all of them are overshadowed by the Bandon resort. Certainly when you have 4 world-class golf courses next doo...

The back nine at Pacific Grove will give you everything you want out of a golf trip to Monterey for a fraction of the price compared to the neighboring courses. Lighthous...

8th Illinois - Best in Area

Warren - Indiana 04/09/2017

4th Indiana - Best in Area
The subtle parkland routing of the front nine gives way to a fantastic back nine capped off by a great stretch from 16-18. I have never played an English heathland course...

7th Wisconsin - Best in Area
A great course in the middle of nowhere! The conditioning is fantastic and I really liked the routing with both two nines. The par 3 with the severe slope to the right is...

One of the most underrated golf courses in Hawaii. The first few holes provide a straight ahead warmup for the great golf to come. Great mountain views, jungle encroachin...
