2009 in Review/ 2010 Preview

I would like to thank all of you who have stopped by my blog during it's first year. Slowly, I am getting to the point where I will be posting pictures and a short article every time I play a new course. I hope you have enjoyed viewing the photo's I have on the site so far.

In 2009 I added 40 new courses to my list. I was fortunate to be able to play some of the better courses in the USA and discover a few hidden gems. As you can see from some of my photo's I was fighting the rain for most of the time I spent in the central and northern US. Several courses I had planned to play I got rained out and hopefully will be able to play in the future. Luckily, I was just one step ahead of the huge rains in Florida in May and Southern Indiana the end of July.

I try to take a couple of week long golf trips every year. In 2009 my two trips concentrated on the Midwest region around Ohio and Indiana. One of the most picturesque courses I played was the new Dye Course at French Lick, which won best new 2009 Public by Golf Digest magazine. There has been a $500 million renovation of the two historic hotels with the addition of a Casino. In addition to the Dye Course there is the 1917 Ross Course, another 9 hole track and a practice center. Well worth the trip to Larry Bird's hometown. On this trip I also played Victoria National, Wolf Run, and Sycamore Hills.

In the Spring on my way back north I made it to Wade Hampton which would be at the top of my list for courses I would love to be a member at. What a slice of heaven that area is. After that I stopped by Valhalla, Camargo, Scioto, Inverness, and Tullymore.

For 2010 I have already reserved my tee times for my biannual trip to Bandon Resort the first of August. With the addition of the 4th course there we will be playing 36 holes a day for four days. I am thinking about heading north to Seattle after Bandon to play a few of the courses in that area. My second trip is still open, either the Chicago area or going to the Northeast to experience golf in that area. Even though I used to vacation in the NE, I have never golfed in the 13 state region and could really add to my states played with a couple of trips there in the next few years.

I didn't play any competitive golf the first half of the year so I decided I would play in my club championship for the first time in several years. In the qualifier I finished 6th which got me in the championship flight, which I was quickly knocked out of in the first round. Only consolation was that I was the oldest guy in the field. Next year I hope to play more Senior events when I am 60.

My handicap stayed in the same , 2-4, range it has for the past 2o years. Even though I feel I am a better player than years ago, with much more knowledge of the game and a wider assortment of shots, it is hard to put it all together for 18 holes. I was really in the "zone" one day for a seven hole stretch where I made 5 birdies and missed two other putts inside 10 feet. It seemed like this was a year of birdies in bunches, then a week long drought.

It was a great year for me in the number of new courses I was able to play and the friendly people I met along the way. Another 16 years like this one and I will be close to 1000.

Why 1000?

I have followed other interesting golf blogs with their goal of playing the top 100 in the World or the Golf Digest US top 100. But what happens to those golfers once they have played all the top courses? What is next for them? Will they ever appreciate and enjoy the thousands of other courses that aren't in the top 100 after playing the best there is? Don't get me wrong, I surely appreciate the opportunity to play top 100 courses but I do not enjoy that golfing experience anymore than playing other courses. For me I needed to find an enjoyable, lifelong, golf journey.

In 2004 when I first started adding up how many courses I had played , I was already at around 200. Initially, I thought 500 would be a reasonable goal. But it was definitely attainable. I needed to find something that would be a real challenge for me. At about the same time, I read an article titled "1000 Marbles". The author was about my age, 55, when he discovered his theory of a thousand marbles (www.topachievement.com/chronicles/marbles.html). At that time he went out and bought 1000 marbles (small beads are smaller and cheaper) and put them in a large container. Every Saturday morning he would take one marble out of the container. By watching his time on earth dwindle away he felt it helped him get his priorities straight. If he made it through all the marbles, to age 75, then he had been given some extra time. This story was what gave me the idea of 1000 golf courses and playing in all 50 states.

What a better way for an avid golfer to see your life go by then to be traveling around the United States playing new golf courses? When I started this journey at age 55, I had a bit of a jump on the 1000 (marbles) golf courses. I have found it a harder challenge to play a new course every week than taking a marble out of a container. If I can play around 45 a year until I reach 75 years old I will hit 1000. Easy to say 1000, but with age comes potential health problems and diminished earnings. So, I have three major hurdles to contend with health being the most likely one to stop me short of 1000.

I have created a challenge for myself which I am very much looking forward to the journey to complete. Do I really think I am going to hit 1000 by age 75? Probably not, but just think if I do eventually reach my goal at say age 83. What more could a golfer ask for? And just maybe I might shoot my age along the way! To date I have shot in the sixties twice in competition, most recently in 2008. So maybe in the next 10 years I might be fortunate enough to check one more item off my Bucket List.

This blogs intent is to give you a feel for the golf course from the many pictures I have taken of each course. The only narratives will be about my favorite golf holes from the various courses I have photographed. I will admit my lack of literary skills and I sure thank God for spellcheck. Being I am only writing about my favorite holes at each course the tone of the blog will be very positive.

I have played a broad spectrum of courses. If you look at my simplistic color rating system of all the courses I have played, it pretty much looks like a Bell Curve. If you have not played a course and want a pictorial preview with a little history of the course, this blog will help you become familiar with that course. If you are like me and have played the course but have over the years forgotten most of the holes, I hope you enjoy the memories of when you played there.

Retracing my golf footprints

It was in early 2004 that I began to wonder how many courses have I actually played? My initial thought was probably somewhere around 200, it actually turned out to be 180. At that point I started to write down on a legal pad all the golf trips I could remember going on and the courses I had played. That was a pretty good start. Next, I tried to remember all the golf courses around the areas I had lived in. Another good number were added to my list. Still, there were a lot that I could not recall the name of the course but I could still remember some of the holes.

I discovered Google Earth has a function which will outline in green all the golf courses in the world for you. As you get closer the name will appear and if you are still not sure it is the same course you can focus right into the individual holes. This was a great help in that several of the courses had changed names but I definitely knew I had played them by the hole features. Google along with the U.S. Golf Course Directory website (http://www.thegolfcourses.net/) got me about 90 % of the courses I had played to that point. At this site you can go to a state and then get a list of all courses in a particular city, another great memory jogger.

By the winter of 2006, my appetite for playing new golf courses was getting up to around 30 or more per year. I now start to put what I recall the quality of the course was when I played it with every name I have on my legal pads, along with the the year I first played it. During this process I remember several other courses that I had forgotten about. To date, I know there are still a few courses out there that I will eventually recall. Some have been destroyed due to development and I just haven't been able to remember the name, even though I know exactly where they were located. Just this July 2009, surprise, another course popped out of my memory bank and I added one more to the list.

It took me over four years to retrace my golf journey. It not only produced a chronological list of 99% of the courses I have played, but more importantly so many wonderful memories of golf played with friends and family over my life. Funny, how most every day I recall playing all these courses it's always sunny and 75 degrees.

Slideshows

In 2006, I entered the digital world and bought a Sony camera that was small enough to slip in my back pocket. Initially, I would snap a shot of an interesting hole, then I progressed to taking one per hole. It has now evolved into trying to take a series of photos (100+) to get a feel for the whole golf club. You will notice that the first photos of each slide show are all about the history, physical structures, and practice areas of the club. Next, I try to either take a photo of the hole marker or of the yardage book to give you an idea of what you will be seeing. Usually I try to take 3 or more photos from the tee to the green. Sometimes I get distracted, usually by a bad golf shot, and miss a photo here and there. A few rounds the weather has not cooperated and prevented me from taking any pictures and you might see only the yardage guide. Some of the courses that I have played more than once since 2006 I have done some updating with newer photos. It is interesting to see the changes that have been made and how courses look in different seasons. Hole #16 at Bandon Dunes is an example of how the look of a hole can change from the last time I played it. Check out the side bar, under Slideshows, and I have posted most of the better courses I have photographed from 2006 to the present. The average slide show will take about 7 minutes.

To view a particular course first click on it and you will be taken to its Picasa album, next click on slide show, last click on F11 for full screen. You can adjust the pace of viewing by going to the bottom of the picture and clicking on the + to add more seconds to each view. Initially the range is set at 3 seconds per slide. I hope these slide shows will give you a better idea of what to expect at the courses you may be considering. If you have already played the course I hope it brings back fond memories. If you are unable to play the course these should give you a good flavor of the club. Foreign courses are followed by an asterisk *.

Favorite/Featured Holes-Photographed

On the side bar you will find a list of Favorite/Featured holes. These are holes that I have photographed from courses played since 2006. To access them just click on the hole(s) and it will take you to the Picasa album. Once there click on slide show and it will take you through the pictures.

This blogs content is meant to be more pictorial than an extensive narrative on golf course architecture or the great courses of the world. There are many other wonderful web sites that give in depth descriptions of every hole of every great course that can be found in my Links. I will try to give you some insight into why I have made these my featured holes and how I played them. In most of the Favorite/Featured hole narratives you will find a link that will take you to the pictures of that hole.

How does a hole make it on my Favorite/Featured list? Most, but not all, will fall into one of the following categories: 1. I love shorter/medium length par 4/par 5 holes that have a high risk/reward and tempt you for going at the green when all logic tells you to lay up. These holes give you alternate routes to the hole and more than one option of club selection off the tee or on your second shot. The so called Half Par holes really bring out the genius in the great architects. 2. Pucker Factor-Holes that require you to make a forced carry or other visual intimidating type of shot. The 8th hole at Pebble Beach certainly would fall in this category and is my all time favorite approach shot. 3. Holes with spectacular visuals, either natural or created. 4. Holes with Classic design features and holes that I want to illustrate a common feature specific to that course 5. Last, holes that I have made an exceptional shot on, when what I visualized actually came together to produce a nice result. If I have to chose between two holes that are near equal in illustrating a point, you are more than likely going to see the one I made a birdie on versus a bogey.

Of the courses I have played and photographed you certainly could make a case for several other holes that should make my list. I have tried to limit it to only one or two holes per course, or in a few instances a series of holes that I feel are outstanding for a particular reason. An example of multiple holes that I will feature are #13-#17 of the Quarry Course at Black Diamond Ranch. These five holes are some of the most spectacular that I have seen. You can't show one with out all the others to get the full effect. The three finishing holes at Sawgrass are examples of risk/reward at it finest. At Pebble Beach, I could have easily included #18 or even the stretch of holes from #6-#10. Sometimes in earlier photo's my most favorite hole of a course may not have adequate photos to do it justice so I have chosen another. Check out the Slideshow sidebar for photos of all the other holes of a particular course.

Wawashkamo #3 and #4-Classic design

Wawashkamo Golf Club is located on Mackinac Island in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. For those who have not visited Mackinac Island, it is a step back in time when the only mode of transportation was by foot, bicycle, or horse. There are three nine hole courses on the island with two of them being owned by The Grand Hotel. Wawashkamo is a privately owned club that is open to the public. It is located centrally, past the airport on British Landing Road.

A Scottish links style course, Wawashkamo was founded in 1898. Alex Smith (winner of two U.S. Opens, runner up three times, and 11 top tens) was the architect and left the land pretty much undisturbed. I had played the course many years ago and recently had the opportunity to return. There are only nine holes but the tees are set separately on each hole giving you a bit of a different angle and length, so as to simulate an 18 hole experience. I was told that a few years ago the club had come under some financial stress and a group had come forward to purchase it and restore it back to its original state. I found the greens and course to be in very good condition, better than I had previously remembered it.

On Mackinac Island things move at a very slow pace. I stopped by the Proshop at the Grand and asked for them to call me a taxi for my 5:00 tee time. The assistant told me it would cost about $7 and there should be one here soon. 45 minutes later and now past my tee time the horse taxi finally arrived. A leisurely 40 minute ride up the hill through Harrisville and past the airport got me to the course about an hour late and $25 lighter in my pocketbook. Not a problem with the starter as the course was not busy. The twilight rate of $20 was very reasonable compared to the two other Grand Hotel courses on the island. After the round I decided I would walk back with my bag, as I thought it was mostly downhill. Obviously, I was not paying attention as the first 25 minutes are uphill. With a couple rest stops it took me an hour and 10 minutes to make it back to downtown. If I had to do it over again I would have ridden a bike up and back to Wawashkamo.

It was a perfect evening to play golf. Wawashkamo has a quaint clubhouse filled with history and a small open air porch to sit and relax after your round. Surprisingly, most golfers who come to the Island have no idea this course even exists. For me this would be my first choice for golf on Mackinac Island.

I have a definite bias for holes with classical design features. Hole #3 and #4 both exhibit these traits. http://picasaweb.google.com/InPursuitof1000/Wawashkamo34?feat=directlink #3 is a short par 4 with two bunkers positioned out about 200-220 yards from the tee. I hit driver up the right side of the fairway past both bunkers and was between a gap or sand wedge into the small, firm green. I went with an easy gap wedge and the ball hit about pin high, but the shot trickled off the green two inches into the Circus Ring. What is a Circus Ring you ask? According to history it was an attempt to require the golfer to loft the ball on the green, not be able to run it on. This hole has been modified from the original in that there is a small opening directly in front to allow ground shots. The two foot wide grass (rough) ring is pretty nasty stuff, in both height and thickness. I hacked out and two putted for my bogey. I would play the sand wedge if I had another chance and take the risk of leaving it a bit short. For a front pin position you could actually try to land a lofted shot short of the Circus Ring and bounce it on.

Hole #4 is a 123 yard Dell style hole, with most of the flag stick hidden. The green is small and slopes away from the line of play. If you are paying attention when you are on the second tee you will see where the pin is located and the slope of the green. I was oblivious to this when I was there and pulled out my 125 yard club when I got to the fourth tee. Again, I hit it pin high and it rolled off the back of the green several feet. An average pitch and putt left me with another bogey. What, I should have done was played one less club just short of the green and let it roll on. If only I could go back and replay one shot every hole, I could be making some big money at this game.

Wawashkamo and Mackinac Island will give you the turn of the century feel of America. If you are in Northern Michigan be sure and spend at least a day on the island and play a round of golf at Wawashkamo Golf Club. Don't forget to take some of the famous fudge home with you.

If you drive across the bridge to take the boat to Mackinac Island there is a neat nine hole course in St. Ignace, right across from the McDonald's. It is a Tom Bendelow design which features some nice classic holes. I drove past this course many times thinking it was a goat farm, only to be pleasantly surprised when I finally played it this past summer. Even better is the price at under $10.

LPGA #7 and #18

The Legends course at LPGA, in Daytona Beach, was designed by Arthur Hills in 1994. This is a 36 hole complex with a practice/teaching center that includes a three hole practice course. It also houses the headquarters of the Ladies Professional Association, who play host to the final stage of Q-school each year. The condition of this course is always impeccable.

http://picasaweb.google.com/InPursuitof1000/LPGA718?feat=directlink
Hole # 7 is a long par 3, 207 yds from the tips, that plays uphill into to the prevailing NE wind. You are usually playing some sort of hybrid or FW wood into this hole, unless you get a westerly wind. It is protected on the left front by a long, deep bunker and if you miss the green right you will have a tough up and down. So you need to either hit it on the 40 yd deep green or miss it short or long left. Hitting this green is very difficult for most people. I was in a group of 40 golfers that play here twice a week. One day this was the closet to the pin hole. The pin was located in the front, only one person hit the green and he was 100 feet from the pin. A birdie on this hole will usually get you a skin.

I usually play at least 1-2 more clubs than the yardage, maybe more depending upon the wind. If it is a back pin don't be concerned about being long, because long left is a good position to miss. If a front pin, don't be long or you will be facing a tricky downhill chip or putt. I have played this course so many times that I have birdied every hole a few times. I have taken my share of big numbers on this hole. This is one of the toughest par 3's I have ever played.

Hole #18 is a superb, finishing hole. You will need two good shots here to have a chance at making par. On the left corner of this dogleg is a large oak that will prevent you from even thinking about going for the green if you are anywhere near it. Off the tee you need to play to the right center of the FW and be out at least 250 yards to have a good look at the green. This could leave you with as much as 185 yards, depending on how far right you are. If you hit it long enough and can draw the ball, go for it. I have gotten around the corner a few times and had a wedge left in. Draw it too much and you will punching out and hoping to get up and down. The wind can swirl here and if that is not enough the green is severely sloped and protected short by an unplayable area. Make sure you have enough club with the only place to miss, long left. A par here will feel like a birdie for most golfers. By the way, the hardest hole at the Legends is the par four #17. Very few golfers ever finish par par here.

Other notable holes: #4, 11, & 14.

Trump #17 Complex

Trump International GC in West Palm Beach was designed by Jim Fazio, nephew of George, in 1999. I was told by Trump Teaching Professional, Gary Wiren who accompanied me on the back nine, that this piece of property was virtually bare and very flat when it was purchased. As you will see from my photo's this property has been turned into a Shangri-La. Thousands of trees have been planted along with landscaping that blends in many vibrant colors of vegetation to produce one of the most aesthetic golf courses in the world.

The dominant feature of the property is the whole complex surrounding the waterfall on hole #17. This includes the #14 green, #15 tee, #17 green, and the 18th tee. (http://picasaweb.google.com/InPursuitof1000/Trump17Complex?feat=directlink) A small mountain, by Florida standards, has been constructed in this area of the course. You first get a glimpse of the backside of it from the green on the 12th hole. Once on the tee of the 14th hole you get a great view of the front side which includes the elevated 14th green. The day I played the course there was a strong left to right wind coming out of the south. I hit a decent tee shot that left me in the fairway about 150 yards uphill to a front pin position. I hit my approach almost pin high but had too much spin on the ball and it sucked back off the front of the green to the position you see in the photo. I pitched on past the hole and had a knee knocker 25 foot downhiller that I was able to two putt for a bogey. The 15th tee makes up the rest of the backside of the complex. It has 'nine' teeing areas. We were playing the Blue tees, which is 6666 yards. This hole is a really great hole as far as options to play it. With a good drive you can attack the green up the left side of the double fairway and maybe get on in two. Otherwise you need to play it up the right side. The fairway is divided by a creek, which is meticulously landscaped. Most courses would just leave it as a creek but at Trump you have bunkers and vegetation lining it. This day, my best drive into the 2-3 club wind was not good enough to allow me to go for it. Even after a well struck 3 wood to the right fairway, I still had a 7 iron into the green. My approach made it on the green to the right back side. Not until I got to my ball did I realize I had another fast downhill putt. My caddie, Bill Baker, warned me how fast this putt was going to be but I still rolled it 10-15 feet past the hole. Luckily, I drilled it straight back up the hill into the hole for a par.

Walking to the tee of the 17th hole it is like the 4th of July, with so many brilliant images jumping out at you. My description will not do it justice, look at the pictures several times to appreciate all the different types of vegetation and the waterfall. When I looked behind me, there is what appears to be a natural hot tub with another waterfalls. Looking back at the green here comes a white swan paddling in front of me. To many distractions, is got to be the reason why I hit such a weak shot into the right fringe vegetation. I used a 5 iron from 176 yds off the tee, and was fortunate to be able to chip it on the green out of the cabbage. From there I two putted for a bogey. The visuals are absolutely sensational on this hole but just an average playing hole. From the 17th green you drive up through a beautiful canopy of palm trees to the 18th tee. Once there you see a very demanding, finishing, Cape hole. One of those holes you don't want to bite off to much or you will be re-teeing, my caddie told me to aim between the two bunkers on the far hill. I for the first time on this nine finally hit it right where he said and had 185 to the pin. The LPGA holds their season ending event here and Lorena Ochoa and Natalie Gulbis battled it out on this hole for the 2007 championship. Ochoa made birdie out of a deep old divot to win. The right side of the hole is crowned steeply to the lake, so anything right of the green well roll in the water. I hit my approach with a 4 hybrid and rolled off the side of the slope and found the water to the right. Instead of going up and dropping laterally, I "Tin Cupped" it and put my next shot on the middle of the green and two putted for my double.

We played the back nine first, due to an event on the front, and Gary Wiren had to leave after nine holes to give a lesson. He is 73 years young, and out drove me on every hole. He topped out at 320 yards off the tee on hole #12. I played very poorly on the back but was able to put together a very good front side, with two birdies, to have a respectable score. As in most designs, the front nine does play easier than the back at Trump. If you look at the picture of the tee area on hole #2, you will see a white wall with a wooden door. This is the bomb shelter built for President Kennedy while he was vacationing in the Palm Beach area.

On the front nine it was just me and my caddie, Bill, who is also 73 years young and was a tour caddie for many years. He told me some interesting stories about being out on tour. He had Al "Mr. 59" Geiberger in his later years on the tour. My first question was, where you on his bag when he shot the 59? He sheepishly said no, which perked my interest as to when he did caddie for him. He told me of how after three years of being on his bag he didn't think Geiberger would ever again finish any higher than second and there was this up and coming young player named Leonard Thompson. So Bill made a new deal and left Geiberger for him. I again asked Bill how long it was after you left Geiberger that he shot the 59? He said "The NEXT WEEK". He won by three strokes. Al Geiberger ended up winning 21 PGA and Sr events, including the 1966 PGA title. For those who don't remember the first "59" ever shot in competition it was June 10th, 1977 in the Danny Thomas Memphis Classic. The course at that time was considered tough and long at 7200 yards. But what makes this the greatest 59 round ever shot is it was played in high humidity and 102 degrees. And as the late Paul Harvey would say, "That is the rest of the story".

No matter what your opinion is of Donald Trump, he has produced one of the most visually aesthetic golf courses that I ever played. A must play if in the area. In 2006 a New Nine was added, which to date is the best nine hole course I have played. I am told Mr. Trump flies down almost every weekend in the Winter months to play these courses and is a decent golfer.

Other notable holes: #3, 8, & 9.

Trump New #8

The Trump New Nine in West Palm Beach was designed by Jim Fazio in 2006. It is accessed in the vicinity of the 13th hole and north end of the practice area of the 18 hole layout. This course is just as nicely maintained as the other course but the day I played it the only other person I saw on it was an assistant pro practicing. My caddy confirmed that it doesn't get that much play. To date it is the best nine hole course I have played.
http://picasaweb.google.com/InPursuitof1000/TrumpNew8?feat=directlink

Hole #8 is an Island Green hole that plays from 85 to 153 yards. If you are going to build any classic Island Green you are no doubt going to be compared to the world famous #17 at Sawgrass. The first impression is that #8 is just a mirror image of the 17th with the bunker placed on the left side. When walking to the tee you notice that it is much more elevated than #17 which makes the green appear larger, actually it is a larger flatter, green. The front tee is only 85 yards to the pin so even when you are playing it from the same distance as Sawgrass, 135 yards, the green feels much closer due to the lack of distance you need to carry the water. Even though Trump #8 is not nearly as an intimidating hole when you step on the tee as Sawgrass, it still is an exciting hole to play. Looking back at the tee from the green, #8 is very visually stimulating and the landscaping is outstanding.

The day I played this hole there was a strong left to right wind coming out of the south. I decided to play it from 135 yards to get a similar feel and distance as Sawgrass. I hit an 8 iron at the left edge of the bunker and the wind blew it right to about 12-15 feet behind the flag. I had a relatively flat putt that I made for a birdie.

Old Marsh GC #5

Old Marsh GC is a 1988 Pete Dye design in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. It was originally 460 acres of marsh land. As typical of most Florida courses they are very, flat designs compared to Northern Michigan where I have played most of my golf.

Hole #5 (http://picasaweb.google.com/InPursuitof1000/OldMarsh5?feat=directlink) is a short par 4, being only 360 yards from the back tee. It is bordered by water on the right and directly behind the right third of the green. I would guess that Mr. Dye was restricted in what he had to work with in the length for this hole, so he wanted to do something to make a relatively easy, defenseless, hole into something more challenging. The previous four holes I felt were a rather docile stretch of golf for a Dye designed course, so he may have felt some pressure to toughen up the course starting at the 5th hole. What he did was construct a 10-12 foot high mound directly across the front of the green with a bunker in the middle creating a blind shot, a classic Dell design hole. He also placed a smaller bunker adjacent to the back middle portion of the green to catch any long approach shots.

The result is you have an interesting, challenging, very memorable golf hole. There is no chance of being able to drive the green, let alone being able to even see the flag stick. If you look closely at the pictures of the mound, you will see a small triangular target rock on the crest of the ridge which indicates where the pin is positioned for that day. Just like the original Dell hole, #6 at Lahinch GC, County Clare, Ireland. Mr. Dye's genius, of using a classic hole design, has produced a hole that is very memorable and fun to play. In fact many of the Dye courses will have some sort of signature blind hole incorporated into its design.

Leaving the green you will pass a bell, dedicated to his father, that is rung to let the group behind you know you have completed play of the hole. Take notice when you ring that bell because there is a tough stretch of holes ahead of you.

The day I played this hole, I hit driver from the back tee to a generous landing area and gap wedge to the smallish green. I ended up just short on the fringe and was able to two putt for my par. I was surprised to see where my approach shot had ended up, as I thought it was going to be long when I struck it. My caddie told me that most players either like this hole or hate it, which is typical of most blind holes. I like it because it is the most memorable hole of the course, due to the fact Mr. Dye choose to incorporate a classic hole design to make it a more challenging hole.

Other notable holes: #7, 8, & 16.

Course Rating Criteria


Let me first say, that I have never played a bad golf course but there are definitely some that are much better than others. I use a six color coded system that is similar to the tee boxes at your local golf course. The forward (Red) tees would equate to the lesser quality courses and the championship (Black) tees would be reserved for those world class courses. I try to play as many upscale courses as possible, so my ratings may appear somewhat skewed to the upside. The ratings are based on when I last played the course, some being over 50 years ago, not what condition they may be in today. Conditioning, Course Design, and Shot Variety are the three main components of my basic color rating system. I do use a few more criteria for those courses that fall into the Black category to help differentiate those . I am always open to your opinion on where you think a course should be rated in its present state.

9 hole courses are noted (9) and do get a bit of a deduction compared to 18 hole courses of the same quality. Those courses that have unique onsite lodging and amenities available will get a bit of a bonus.

RED (R) - OK. If you are in need of a golf fix, there is a tee box and a flag stick to shoot at. What more can one ask for when you have a golf addiction?

GREEN (Gr) -FAIR, basic design with marginal to fair conditioning. Couple of decent holes.

WHITE (W) - GOOD, basic/decent design with fair/avg conditioning. A few notable holes.

GOLD (G) -VERY GOOD, decent design, avg/well conditioned, with some distinctive holes.

BLUE (B) - EXCELLENT, exceptional design/well conditioned or great design/avg conditioned. A must play if in the area with many memorable holes.

BLACK (Bk**) - EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIENCE, this course has or will be on some golf publication's top 200 list. Great design with a variety of playable holes of different lengths that challenges the player as to club selection and offers various options to play a shot. Several of the holes are very memorable with a strong group of finishing holes. It is very well conditioned and usually plays firm and fast (I have a bias toward Links style courses). This course most often offers the option to walk or take a caddie for your round of golf. The majority of the holes will have adequate isolation from adjacent holes, with very little if any residential impact, providing a great visual experience. Never pass up an opportunity to play a course of this caliper.

*I am an independent golf course rater not affiliated with any golf publications.*

Every time I play a new course I place a color coded pin on the framed USA map pictured above. It is an interesting topic of conversation when other golfers visit my home.

Introduction to Courses by State/Region

I have divided the courses I have played into nine regions:
1. Eastern US- courses east of the Mississippi not included in other regions
2. Carolina's
3. Florida
4. Michigan- Upper Peninsula
5. Michigan- Northern Michigan, below the Bridge above Mt.Pleasant
6. Michigan- Lower Michigan, south of Mt. Pleasant
7. Western US- courses west of the Mississippi not included in other regions
8. Arizona
9. Foreign

In each state/region I have organized the courses with what I feel are the better golf courses at the top of each list. The first number corresponds to the chronological order I played the course- followed by the course name, city- year first played, and rating.
