I have played Colonial enough to be familiar with how it sets up, so my favorite has to be Colonial.  As an aside, I played Colonial on Sunday before the tournament.  Played really well, 78 from as far back as we could.  First round, some tour guy showoff shot 63.

I lived in FW for many many years & walked the entire course a couple times every year at the Colonial tournament.  I finally got to play it a few years ago, shot 89, & was happy with it.  The course is not terribly long, but there are other issues to be sure. It was in awful shape the time I played it, because of an unusually hot summer, the greens were awful too.  That Fall they redid the greens & made some changes, but I guess this year they are revamping the whole course.  I've been gone from FW for years now, but still love watching the Colonial tournament.  It'll always be just "The Colonial" no matter who sponsors it.

Another vote for MPCC Shores course.  Very underrated.  They need more cameras out there when broadcasting the clambake.  The Dunes course (too short for a tour event) is also fantastic since Fazio spruced it up.

 

Pebble, Spy, Spanish, MPCC, and Cypress all within 10 minutes of each other.  Where else do you find that in the world?!?!?

Another vote for pebble, such a classic and I think the 18th is my favourite hole in all of golf (either that or 13th at Augusta)

 

I also love Kapalua, but a lot of the reason for that is because when they play the tournament of champions it's the deep end of winter in the UK and we're lucky if the course is even open due to weather, meanwhile our favourite players are in Hawaii living the dream

Agreed. I like it better than Pebble Beach. I'm sure I'll be scolded for say it out loud...

 

How good is the 14th on the Dunes course? You tee off with spectators behind you who parked their cars just to enjoy the view.

For me watching on TV the holes 13-18 are what I look most at, and the lack of boring standard holes among those holes :
 

Quail hollow and Crans-sur-Sierre are two with drama all the way in. Menorial 17 and 18. the PGA nationals of France and US. I want to be entertained. Austin CC.
 

Some because of the scenery, Mpumalanga and Liberty National. 
 

Some famous and generally brilliant courses have too many bories the last 6, most notably AN, PB and Old Course. Sawgrass with those 14 and 15 among the otherwise spectacular last 9.
 

This is of course up to taste. Those courses with the idea long par four corridors of grass in the woods, like Firestone, Colonial and Pinehurst, not my cup of tea.

Down the list, Old White, Austin CC, Colonial.

If you're talking Greenbriar I agree. Was fortunate to play it the week before the tournament with local caddies. The hotel is hokey but the course is really lovely...surrounded by trees and nothing else. The people there were very nice...i could see living there. A lot cheaper than N. CA that's for sure..

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
