    The Camp David 9-Holer. Hasn't been the same since they shortened 3 and 4.

    Actually, Camp David only has a single green with a couple of tee areas. Judging by the most current GoogleMaps image, it's currently undergoing renovation. The nearest course to the compound is Maple Run, which is quite possibly the worst pos golf course on the face of the Earth.

    Clearly you have never been to Camp David.

    I would love to, but they are not likely due to location. My next few destinations are;

    Cabot Links
    Lake Tahoe
    Punta Cana
    Banff
    Bandon Dunes

    You probably already know this, but...
    if you’re going all the way to Cape Breton, you might want to play Highlands Links too. Like Banff, it was designed by Stanley Thompson. At least top 10 on every list of Canadian courses that I’ve ever seen.

    I've played Banff and I have played Highland Links. Highland Links is more spectacular. Both were exceptionally enjoyable.

    Next year it's Winged Foot (imo a great US open course, probably the best), Harding park (looks good to me on TV, but many who've played it don't seem to agree), and royal at george's which I dont know much about other than having some sahara sized bunker.

    Pebble and Pinehurst, glorified resort courses

    Gee, don't forget Torrey and Bethpage, glorified munis. A good course is a good course.

    Exactly, but those aren't good courses, they're just in the inner circle.
    PGA West Stadium and PGA National are good courses. Could you imagine those with a US Open setup? It would be crazy

    I actually wouldn't mind seeing PGA National host a major.

    PGA National hosted the 1987 PGA Championship, but obviously it's not in the majors regular rotation. With the PGA being played so early in the year now, it may get more consideration again. Of course, the Honda would have to be played somewhere else that year.

    Sawgrass is a great course. Probably better than half the courses being used for the PGA Championship.

    Thats the good thing about players being held there, at least that crappy track won't get to host a real major. Other than the par 5's, that course is useless
