Caledonia Golf & Fish Club in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina Driving up to the clubhouse is the closest most of us will get to driving up Magnolia Lane to Augusta! Sent from my iPad using MyG

I have a few, but top 2 would be Arrowtown Golf Club in Arrowtown NZ. It is a quirky fun course that offers a ton of variety, stunning views and some very unique holes. There are no bunkers on the cou

My favorite course I’ve played so far is Peninsula State Park Golf Course in Ephraim Wi. It is right on Lake Michigan and filled with views as well as a really fun 69 yard par 3 that you just use a pi

I was going to play #4 last year on our annual trip, but they wanted close to $350 or 375 I think for it and just figured if I am going to pay that, I might as well play #2 again.  I have not heard one bad thing though about 4, maybe I need to find a member down there who can get us on as guests for cheaper.  That's typically what we do to play 2, we know a guy. hahahaha. 

I too like Mid Pines, the greens always roll great and the course is never in bad condition.  It is a fun course to play and you are right, you need to have a lot of shots in the bag to do really well there.  It's not a stupidly hard course but knowing what direction the ball is going is a must. 

We're headed down in a couple of weeks, and have friends who are members at PH.  We're hoping to get a chance to play #4, either this trip or at Thanksgiving.

Isn't geography one of those optional courses in school now?

Thanks for the catch!

Always Talamore and Mid South.  We'll check on availability and pricing at Mid Pines and/or Pine Needles, maybe look at Southern Pines (good reports since the new ownership is in place), Tobacco Road, Dormie Club, and almost certainly get a round in with our friends at Pinehurst.

That's one hell of a plan!  As always, I'm jealous!  We did not get a chance to go down there this year due to Covid.  We will hit it up again next year for sure!

Love the Michigan representation!

I haven't played too many courses, but for what it's worth my 1 and 2 are The Gailes in Oscoda, MI and Diamond Springs in Hamilton, MI, respectively.

The Gailes gets pretty good run, but I think Diamond Springs is severely underrated. There's all sorts of super interesting topography, as well as some high risk/reward holes. I'm not gonna do it as much justice as Andy Johnson did from The Fried Egg, I'd highly encourage checking his course review out: https://thefriedegg.com/diamond-springs-golf-course/.

Arcadia is on my bucket list for sure!

Erin Hills in Wisconsin - site of the 2017 US Open.  I've always wanted to play a true American-style links course and this really checked all of those boxes for me (not sure if its the architect's intent, but more so my interpretation of it).

Spanish Bay and Monterrey area of California.  Spanish Bay for its sheer beauty and breathtaking views of the ocean, with that links-ish feel to it on some holes.  Many folks put Spyglass above it, but I'm in the minority there in stating I like SB better.  Another good one on that 17-Mile Drive area is Poppy Hills.

Best public course under $100 I've ever played was Black Horse on Fort Ord Army Post in California.

Did you really stay in the one I own?  I'm trying to remember if I've ever shared which unit is mine.

Yes, a while back you and I talked about owning the condo then you sent me a screen shot of my name.  There is no better place to stay down there then Talamore! So, next round is on you!!!  hahaha

My all time favorite has to be the Pete Dye course in French Lick, Indiana. Challenging but absolutely stunning in the fall. The course is just immaculate. The French Lick resort has done a nice job with their courses (Donald Ross, Sultan's Run, etc.), but the Pete Dye is head and shoulders above anything I've ever played. Volcano Bunkers were a sight that just blew me away!

Here's a photo I snagged off the web. I hope to get up there again this fall and play!

I honestly do not recall the name of the course but it was in the Lake Tahoe area.  My Dad took me on a weekend trip and we played a couple of courses over a weekend.  I recall it having a couple of super high elevated tees and the grounds and views just gorgeous. Plus I got too drive the cart 🤗.  I was about 14 years old at the time and it was just one of those great memories I have with him golfing.

Could it have been Edgewood? I'm heading out to Tahoe in a few weeks and plan on playing there!

It's truly unbelievable. If I get up there this fall I plan on staying in the West Baden (once the largest man-made dome in the world) and trying to play more than one round. Hopefully that will let me snag some sunrise and sunset pics with the leaves changing. I'll be sure to post them here.
