TPC Sawgrass-One of the few modern courses that gives you options.
Bayonet-Before they remodeled it, there was no OB and no water and still one of the toughest on the west coast. Maybe even better now after the remodel.
Southern Hills-Great old traditional course where you always have a direction to bring it in from. It didn’t hurt my love for the course that I shot really low :-).
The Monster at the Concord-Fun, extremely long traditional course. Was 7900 from the tips when I played it in the early 90’s
Torrey Pines South-Tree lined and ocean views. What more can you ask for?
Oakland Hills-See Southern Hills
Firestone North and South-South is a monster. Tight driving holes, with lots of options if you miss the fairway. North more forgiving, but just as fun.
Cypress Point-The best short course you will ever play. Greens are just plain fun to putt and the views are awesome.
I know it’s blasphemy not to include Pebble Beach, so I will. 6-10, 17 and 18 might be 7 of the 10 best holes in golf.
