For myself - combining both quality of the course and value (important, I think, because of today's economy) - I like Poppy Ridge in Livermore, CA (http://www.poppyridgegolf.com/virtualtour/tour.html) and Half Moon Bay Ocean Course (http://www.halfmoonbaygolf.com/index.php?page=the_courses-the_ocean_course) in Half Moon Bay, CA.

With Poppy Ridge, one can get discounted green fees through www.golfnow.com. At Half Moon Bay, one just needs to sign up for a free email newsletter to get green fee discount info.

There are many beautiful courses in the Pa., NJ area most are private but there are some gems that are public and that's pretty much all I play. I will get a list together of all the courses I've played in a day or two. I'll have to look at some of my score cards I've saved!

I enjoy Magnolia Grove in Mobile, AL. Its part of the RTJ Golf Trail. The LPGA plays the Bell Micro Classic there every year, and its a great value for locals and snowbirds alike

I was a member of Caledonia and True Blue for several years. Caledonia is prettier but I think True Blue is more challenging and fun to play.

Yoche De He course near the Cashe Creek Casino here in nor cal. What a great facility. Truly felt like a resort experience for $65 after 1 in the summer. Maybe the greatest non-costal 19th hole patio I have been to.

I still have to say Oyster Bay in North Myrtle Beach, just great views and a great, tough course with a great staff!
