No one seems to have addressed your original question, Fairway. For me, I'd have to pick at least five courses near me, so I could play a different course every weekday (as a retiree, I don't play much on the busy weekends). It would be wonderful to pick five course to travel to, but it would be very hard to do, because of the travel costs. Like everyone else, I'd love to play Pebble Beach, Augusta National, and The Old Course, but getting there to play more than once would break my bank very quickly. I'd probably pick some tournament quality courses near me here in Texas, like Colonial, TPC San Antonio, TPC Four Seasons in Irving, and possibly the TPC Louisiana, and Annandale (Madison, MS).
