    So why keep going back as I'm assuming you are paying?



    I played it in 2016 as part of a larger SF trip and was great. The architecture is genius Mackenzie, you have to forget about the homes around the course, although I admit it takes away from it. I thought the course was in very good shape as well, not immaculate but definitely above average. Not long, but greens are very tough.



    I have played Pinehurst as well after the C&C renovation and it was awesome!



    So respectfully disagree.

    Pasa had water restriction brought on them. Fairways were purple. Firm and fast though. MacKenzie lived on the course. If anything its underrated. People are such maint whores and don't get real golf.

    3. Pacific Dunes

    4. Erin Hills

    Conestoga isn't bad, but there are a few too many meh holes on the back nine. Sand Hollow has a wonderful stretch on the back nine along the valley, but the front nine is a real snoozer. Now, take the front nine from Contestoga, and pair it with Sand Hollow's back nine, and I think you have a winner.

    You don't think one of the allure of a great course is it's ability to get us to come back and play it over and over? I think I've skipped wolf creek every chance I had when I'm in the area. I head straight to sand hollow and just enjoy my stay there.



    I'd even argue the paiute courses in vegas is 100x better than wolf creek.

    Sentry World is a real treat... just make sure you play the correct tees or you'll be hitting hybrid-wedge into a bunch of holes

    'Just got back from central Wisconsin. I added Sentry World (34) to the list. The course is a very nice parkland layout with superb conditioning, but it's very overrated at #34. I'd probably rank it in the bottom 20 of the list. I also played Sand Valley and Mammoth Dunes, and I expect to see both on the '19-'20 list next year.

    Have all the top 26 on every list done. Started this in 1976. Amazed at how many in the second 100 used to be in the top 100 and have moved out never hear about anymore.




    The top 26 over the year of the GD lists you mean? That is an unusual even number to have. It is just by happenstance or are you striving for something?

    I just got back from Jacksonville, and I added TPC Sawgrass Player's Stadium (#51/#12) to the list. While it's always fun to tee it up where the pros play, I believe it's a bit overrated at #12 on the public list. I'd place it in the #25 to #30 range. Based on value, it drops near the bottom , as it's just not close to a $500 course. $250? OK, now we're in the ballpark.
