    Here goes<br />
    <br />
    1: The K Club (Ryder Cup 2006)<br />
    2: Hacienda del Alamo (Spanish Open 2009 I think, unreal course)<br />
    3: Fota Island (irish Open 2001, 2002)<br />
    4: Cork Golf Club (Alistair MacKenzie design, 10 minutes from the door)<br />
    5: Harbour Point (Home club, a real toughy)<br />
    <br />
    I don't mind about the course once the greens are fast and the fairways are short

    After playing Forest Creek in Pinehurst this summer, I can't put together a list anymore. It tops all of the few good courses I've played by a long margin.

    Tough to get on but absolutely incredible. Probably in the top 1 or 2 I've played to date. Was a few years ago with a tour player and 2 of his sponsors. Great day.<br />

    <br />
    <br />
    You know what, I honestly feel Fazio blew it with Great River. I think the practice facility and clubhouse are second to none but I can't put it above any of the 5 public I listed. The reason I think he messed up is he has a parcel of land seperated by train tracks. However, instead of using the upper section where there was adequate land he opted to use the land along the Housatonic River. This caused the course to be squeezed into a piece of land too small for what they were trying to accomplish causing many holes to run parallel with one another. Just my opinion take it for what its worth.

    Hi,<br />
    <br />
    I thought that both Doral and Bay Hill were over rated, big time!!<br />
    <br />
    The only thing that was worth it at Bay Hill was hitting balls a couple places down from Arnie on the range, and a couple groups ahead of him on the course.<br />
