Pick one? Sort of like having a Lay's Potato Chip isn't it? Pick one as.....? What?
If I had to pick one to be the course I wanted to play for the rest of my life everyday I would probably say something like Hilton Head National. That would mean I'm retired and so I'd want to live where it's warm and I truly could play golf every day. It's down on the South Carolina coast, has 27 holes to play, and they treat you like you are at a private course for around 50 bucks! How do you beat that?
If I had to pick the course that I would want to play at but I still had to work I would pick the Finley Course at The University of North Carolina. Duh.... Seriously, I would want to be back in Chapel Hill, and that was the course for me down there for a ton of reasons.
Eric, the courses I picked are all ones that have really special memories one way or another. I have been very lucky to travel extensively for work, and have gotten to play in many states here in the USA, lots of great courses in the Toronto area, and a few in Mexico. Nothing outside North America yet, but there is time for that.
The moral of this story? Pack you clubs and take them everywhere you go. I have met great people around the country and seen some great courses, like many of you. That's why golf is the greatest game there is, which we all know.
