Favorite courses ever played

Recommended Posts

I’ve played Whistling, prefer Black Wolf run -

TPC Sawgrass
Black Wolf Run Championship course
World Woods Pine Barrens

Pine Barrens is actually affordable - under $100 even for someone from out of state in season. I doubt I’ve ever paid $50.

Taylor Made Stealth 10.5  Aldila Ascent Red R flex

Ping G410 5, 7, 9 wood  Alta 65 R flex

Wilson D7 forged 5-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

Edison Wedges 54 and 59 KBS Tour Graphite 80's

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Still on that elusive hunt for a 3 wood that I'm able to hit - I don't know why, I crush the 5 wood and it's really a 4 wood anyway.

Well, I’ve got a new course, not better than the Pete Dye Course at French Lick I mentioned earlier, but close: Edgewood at Lake Tahoe. 


I just played last weekend and it was great! The altitude helps ball flight, the course was in immaculate shape, and the views were spectacular!

It wasn’t overly challenging, open enough to forgive a miss now and then, but the bunker and tree placement made some holes tricky and interesting. One thing I hadn't seen before was on a blind tee box they had a TV showing the hole up ahead so you could see the group in front of you clear out of the way. That was very cool. 

The photos don't do it justice, I was too busy playing to capture as many as I should have but the finish from 15-18 all leads into or alongside beautiful Lake Tahoe. On 16, I hit near the edge of the course and I just had to slip my shoes off and dip my toes in the water that ran along the side of the the hole as I walked to my ball.

TPC San Antonio was a pretty cool course that comes to mine.

I also really liked Links of Lawsonia in Green Lake, WI. Cool course

Beverly Country Club in Chicago is also a super nice private club, it's where all the blackhawks, bears, and other high profile clients play.

I don't have a favorite course I have played. 

As I think about it, the people I played with are more of the memory than the course. 

Someday I may have a chance to play a memorable course. 

Golf is simple - people are complicated.

5w Taylormade SLDR S 19* - 220yd, Ping G2 5-U - 190-105, Maltby M+ 54* & MG 60* - 95-75, Evnroll ER8, Titleist 816 H1 4h 21*, Maltby 4 Hybrid Iron 24* - 210-200, Callaway XR16 8* - 235 carry
