For me, first stop is always Bermuda. I enjoy playing Mid-Ocean, but something about Port Royal appealed to me more:
But playing in Vegas last year, I really enjoyed these 3 stops:
And Rio Secco:
The woodlands course at lawsonia in green lake Wisconsin. Very good rates and a scenic course. Here is the 7th hole on the links course.
The 3rd hole on the woodlands course. About a 68 foot drop and 170 yards
I am a big fan of Hilton Head. Nothing beats a morning round at Sea Pines and an afternoon 18 at Palmetto Dunes!
Let's not forget Spanish Bay
and of course MPCC
And of course, Pebble Beach...
Just be more for the wonderful time at Pebble.....
Country Club in Manila, Philippines which is the oldest course in that country, Nirwana Country Club in Bali, Indonesia which was designed by Greg Norman, Dalit Bay Country Club in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, and Huis Ten Bosch Country Club in Nagasaki, Japan designed by Jack Nicklaus. These are just a few of the amazing courses I have had the pleasure of playing around the world.
I hope to hear of some more courses people have played world wide. While I believe some of the best golf can be found in America, there are most certainly some hidden gems around the world....
I've played a lot of places but my favorite has to be Myrtle Beach, a lot of great memories!
The Honors outside Chattanooga, TN is my favorite course to have ever played. I spent a weekend there last year. Top notch. It's designated for Amateur events, but it is PGA quality. TPC Sugarloaf was fun, but that rough was impossible.
My favorite place to play was the Ocean Club in Nassau, Bahamas. Simply one of the more visually stunning courses I've ever had the privilege of playing on.
My favorite golfing destination would have to be Payne Stewart Golf Club in Branson, MO. This course is simply remarkable for the $50 green fee in the off season.
