    We're lucky being in NC having Pinehurst #2 which will be espcially nice to play it in US Open conditions but I doubt I'd rank Mid-Pines about Dormie though.

    Interesting to see that.  My "home" course TPC Deere Run took quite a leap this year.  Can't believe its above Eagle Ridge though.

    Interesting list.  I need to go to work.  I have played none of the courses on the list in Georgia.

    Thanks for sharing. Definitely some courses that I've played over the years (in MA, CT, VT, IL) and some that I wouldn't have guessed would be on the list at all.


    Interesting...nice to see as a resource when traveling!

    Some interesting courses in here  - As a MA resdent, great to see Crumpin Fox get credit. Fantastic course about three miles from where I grew up in western MA.


    Yes, I agree, Mark... fun to see...

    I can't believe Rustic Made #4 over PGA West Stadium as #7.

    Rustic is a great course, but the Stadium is very demanding.

    Also, I wonder how much weight is in modern vs. classic rating.

    Torrey Pines at #9 ???

    •2. Spyglass Hill, Pebble Beach (No. 20, m)

    I saw a few of the courses I got to play when I lived in Vegas.  The Oklahoma list is good, but I do question two of the choices and how easy they are to get tee times.  


    One man's trash is another man's treasure.


    Have played all of the Virginia Course except for Riverfront (guess I need to make a trip to Suffolk) and need only one the West Virginia courses - Stonewall.

    Can't believe Tobacco Road is rated that high in North Carolina (just my opinion).


    Interesting to see the list.  Thanks for sharing.  I've got a few check marks, but there's many more I need to play


    Thanks for sharing the list,.I have played 7 of the top 10 in WI, so looks like I have my list of courses to play TY to hit all 10.

    Adding the 5th out of 20 here in Michigan this summer. My golf league is on the 16th ranked course. I get to play that one every week.
