Engineers 19/05/2019

23rd New York - Best in Area
Quirky and wild in spots. If you like interesting and wild greens, you'll love this course. It is a lot of fun with more memorable holes than higher ranking courses. #2,...

Calusa Pines 18/04/2019

5th Florida - Best in Area 72nd USA Ranking 82nd North America Ranking
Calusa Pines is your typical Hurdzan/Fry with wide fairways, raised greens, and gigantic bunkers. The conditions are spectacular and you won't find a more photogenic cour...

6th Florida - Best in Area 95th USA Ranking
I had played the Blue course 3 times and the Red course only once because I favored the Blue. On my most recent trip, I played the Red again and the Black. The Black beca...

Shoal Creek - Alabama 02/04/2019

2nd Alabama - Best in Area
I had low expectations going into Shoal Creek. Aside from Muirfield Village, the Jack Nicklaus courses I played were underwhelming. However, I was pleasantly surprised wi...

East Lake 02/04/2019

4th Georgia - Best in Area
I played Eastlake this week and after the first 4 holes I was underwhelmed. Then the rest of the course was fantastic. The par 5s are the highlight and are memorable. How...

Westwood Country Club 11/12/2018

23rd Ohio - Best in Area
This course is a hidden gem in Cleveland. While it is a short course, that is part of its charm and makes it an enjoyable walk. The par 3s are fantastic, among the best i...

Forest Dunes (Weiskopf) 21/10/2018

8th Michigan - Best in Area
Forest Dunes is a fantastic public course with plenty of eye candy. While the eye candy is mostly out of play, there are some very good holes on the course and it is fun...

Sleepy Hollow (Upper) 27/06/2018

17th New York - Best in Area
I had the pleasure of playing Sleepy Hollow a few weeks ago. I consider myself a pretty tough critic (check out my other reviews), but this is a vastly underrated course...

Wannamoisett 09/06/2018

2nd Rhode Island - Best in Area
Wannamoisett is only 104 acres but has tons of character. At par 69, the par 4s still play long. The routing is great, but the highlights are the bunkering and greens. Th...

Fox Chapel 20/05/2018

5th Pennsylvania - Best in Area 94th USA Ranking
I've had the pleasure of playing a few Seth Raynor courses, including Fishers Island and Yale. Fox Chapel is another Raynor gem. There's a good balance between long par 4...

Dye Preserve 17/04/2018

33rd Florida - Best in Area
The Dye Preserve has a stunning clubhouse. There are many professional golfers at the golf, which adds to the atmosphere when you are hitting balls on the range next to a...

Seminole 17/04/2018

1st Florida - Best in Area 17th USA Ranking 17th North America Ranking 29th World Ranking
Seminole is arguably the best work of Donald Ross, along with Pinehurst #2. It is one of the most disputed courses among rankers, but I can't see why some don't like it--...

Misquamicut 17/03/2018

9th Rhode Island - Best in Area
Many people describe the course as schizophrenic due to the substantial differences between the front 9 and back 9. The front has wild, rolling terrain, which I found uni...

Chambers Bay 05/02/2018

2nd Washington - Best in Area
I can't think of a modern course that has been so controversial and has such a wide range of ratings. Some have argued it is too wild, while others say the wildness makes...

Chechessee Creek 05/02/2018

7th South Carolina - Best in Area
A good Coore and Crenshaw course that gets rated a little higher than it should. It is a very good course, but slap a different name on it as the architects, and it won't...

Hidden Creek 05/02/2018

12th New Jersey - Best in Area
The greens here are fantastic. Great bunkering too. I had high expectations from hearing how great this Coore and Crenshaw design is. The front 9 didn't live up to my exp...
