5. The patch / Augusta Municipal This is a very short golf course, even from the back set of tees. The layout is not bad, but displays little to no challenge. The course conditions are usually pretty bad, but they seem to be getting better with time The course does have a driving range, and a short game practice area 4. Goshen Plantation Golf Club Goshen provides an extremely challenging layout The course provides various sets of tees that accommodate each and every skill level The greens are slow, but run true course condition is fair, but seems to be improving has an excellent driving range and short game area. 3. Forest Hills Very historic golf club Has many sets of tees to accommodate many skill levels Greens are blazingly quick, and have a ton of slippery slopes Layout is my favorite of the local public clubs. Has a driving range, but a very limited short game area 2. Mt. Vintage This course is the most challenging public course around Course provides few sets of tees, but are spread out alot greens are slow, but run true The rough is no joke There are no flat lies, the ball is either above or below your feet Has the best driving range and short game areas 1. The River Incredibly scenic, especially the first and last 3 Challenging, but not impossible Many sets of tees, but the back set could be longer Water everywhere, and I mean everywhere Perfect condition year round super fast and true greens pace of play is slower than christmas Thanks for reading - Myles Riley
There's a really good blog post digging into golfer performance by handicap level this morning, which utilizes TheGrint's database of recorded rounds. One of the other features of TheGrint is the ability for everyday golfers, like you and me, to give a brief overview of the condition and playability of the courses that you visit. I've been a 'Grinter' for the last year and have found it really useful - I've even played a round with a random person through TheGrint and the local Club that I'm a part of. TheGrint have come up with the Top-20 courses in the US. I know, everybody has their own list of Top-20 courses - this list is compiled from over 100,000 reviews on its site from members who have played the courses. The list is limited to courses that have had at least 30 reviews, but gives both a 'fun rating' and 'shape rating'. There are some well known courses on here, but most I've not heard of (no local courses in Hawaii make the list, unfortunately). http://www.thegrint.com/range/2014/11/thegrint-top-20-golf-courses-ranking-grinters/ The link has photos of all of the Top-20 courses as well - some of which look amazing! Have you played any of these courses? Would you agree with the rankings for the ones you've played? Are there any surprizes in your neck of the woods?
