  • I just played Sleepy Hollow today, and it might have cracked my Top 5. It’s amazing!
  • ChancemanChanceman Members Posts: 581 ✭✭
    My most enjoyable courses played have been

    Carnoustie (despite the rain, mist and fog),

    Pebble Beach (who could not enjoy that place),

    St Andrews (atmosphere),

    Bandon Dunes (existential),

    Pasatiempo (sheer class), and

    Royal Melbourne (pure golf).

    Hoping to add Sand Hills and Royal County Down to that list over the next year or so.

    So jealous! This is a great list. I have heard so many great things about Sleepy Hollow... Hoping to get out there someday. Fishers is the only course I have played of the ones you listed, interested to see where that ranks at the end of your season!
