One to watch for will be the Dirleton Links at Archerfield when it matures.
Located between Muirfield and Gullane. Plans to be the Loch Lomond of the East they say.

Have to agree with Las Ramblas, Costa Blanca, some stunning holes not for the faint hearted !

Depends on if you mean favorite known of or favorite played. If it's the later I'd say Crooked Stick, Carmel Indiana, site of the 1991 PGA that John Daly won.
If it's the former, I don't have an opinion if I haven't played it.
Hole-in-one PRO 10 years ago
Bandon Dunes, Oregon (all 3 courses in fact....Pacific Dunes, Bandon Dunes, and Pacific Trails). They blow away Pebble (Spyglass and Links @ Spanish Bay included), Torrey Pines, and Whistling Straits.

I have to say that Caledonia in Pawley's Island, SC is one of my favorites.

Caledonia in Mist 2

Also really enjoyed playing at Bay Hill Club in Orlando, FL. But I desperately want to play in Scotland.

Spyglass at Pebble Beach. More challenging than Pebble and has a great mixture of views. Nothing like the view of Pacific ocean, cypress trees and sand dunes at Spyglass.
Mostraum PRO 10 years ago
It's always hard to decide on favorites, but I have to agree with Las Ramblas, Costa Blanca beeing one of the best, some stunning holes not for the faint hearted ! Back here in Norway my favourite is of course Meland GK outside Bergen. A challenge for anoyone. PRO 10 years ago
All four of the courses at Kohler in Wisconsin. If I had to pick one, it would be the River Course. Straits is beautiful, but almost impossible for a 15 handicap to break 100.

Tioman Island, Malaysia. Less than 1% of the golfing population of the world are aware of it's existence, on a small island in the South China Sea. In the UK I've played probably 7 or 8 courses that are better than Wentworth West Course. One of them is The Edinburgh Course at Wentworth. And a few miles up the road Camberley Heath. But favourite UK course is probably Carnoustie Championship. It's a monster!

I havnt played all that many outside of the areas that I have lived. I have played a couple of the Disney courses in Orlando that were highly recommended but I would say that my favorite course is the Legends Course in Brentwood/Franklin Tennessee. Very well maintianed and a great course.
Any golf course is better than what ever else I could be doing..

The Golf Club of Scottsdale is the best I have played. Great layout, very well maintained, service, beauty, challenge, and views from everywhere you might be. Several elevation changes. Every few holes, there is a box with drinks and snacks. Help yourself. Private and expensive.

I am on a college golf team and we've traveled all over the eastern United States... My favorites that i've played would have to be Old Memorial Golf Club in Clearwater Beach, Florida - a private club where members are invited to join, only 100 local members in the Tampa area. It was an insane experience since everyone gets their own caddy and one of our alumni is a member... amazing! I also absolutely love El Campeon at Mission Inn & Resort in Florida as well. The last two years our National Championships were held there... it is one of the most beautiful and challenging courses I've ever played.

I would love to be able to play St. Andrews and other famous ones in Scotland and Ireland one day.

Of the courses that I have played, I would have to say that the Mount Kidd course at Kananakis, Alberta would be my fave. And I also enjoyed the Banff Springs the few times I played there (minus the elk crap all over the fairways).
A. Dawson 9 years ago
Augusta National hands down. I went to the '99 Masters and was blown away by the course as many would be. The one image that sticks in my mind is walking through the gates and up to the first tee box, noticing the contrast between the green grass and white sand of the fairway bunker on #1. The history there can be felt as you walk each hole, cresting the hill on #11 and seeing the picturesque 12th ahead is another one that is burned in my mind.

Mine is Urriðavöllur golfcourse in Garðabær Iceland. It has a tricky lava surroundings which make your every mistake a big gamle. Then of course in Iceland you can play golf all day long and the night also in June because then we have the light nights.

My all time favorite golf course is the "Evergreen Golf Course" in Nipawin, Saskatchewan, Canada. It's not Pebble Beach, Bethpage or St. Andrews but it was my home course for many years. I formed many long lasting friendships, developed countless lifelong memories and basically learned the great game of golf on this course. Many nights spent relaxing in the 19th hole after a long day of golf. Playing the 18th hole in the dark with your partner pressing the bet. Hours upon hours practicing at the range. How can you beat your home course?

Away from home - Augusta National

Still haven't played it but I visited the Highlands Links, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and think it's one of the finest for many reasons. Sadly only open half the year due to the weather. Brilliant website though, and even that's worth a visit.

In the UK the most challenging I've played was the Royal North Devon, at Westward Ho!.... oldest course in England and IMHO not "on the circuit" because it's too difficult even for the pros!

I'm more of a 'pay as you play' type now and get around Eastern Ontario.... some really good courses at very good prices, though it seems that if you wanted 'real golf club catering' you have to pay silly prices. Again, sadly, most are only open April to October.

If I had to choose my favorite I've played, it has to be Mahogany Run Golf Course, St. Thomas USVI. It's a beautiful course and challenging.

Well I got to play my round at Cape Kidnappers. It was a dandy. It rained (it's in New Zealand, what do you expect?) but we had a great time. Never been to a place like it. The whole experience was otherworldly right from the 8km drive from the front gate to the clubhouse. Everything about the course itself is perfect. But for sheer beauty and scenery it's still Tioman Island Golf Club for me.

The 27-holed golf course is truly fabulous to play on. Set in the most beautiful surroundings it's no wonder James Bond and Bridget Jones were filmed here. So close to London yet away from the hustle and bustle this is the perfect place for a round of golf!

I have just recently started taking on golfing and it is not as easy as it seems. I have been using the local country clubs in the area but the best one I have been to is the one located in Palm Beach, Florida. The best ones I have seen picture wise are the ones I seen in the UK, in particular the ones in Scotland. I never realized how detailed and elaborate golfing apparel was until I started going on the courses either . I think I am going to get one of the custom embroidered shirts that I have seen recently with my initials in it, so I can start blending in with the rest of them!

Cypress Point, the Old Head, Bandon dunes (all of them) and Pumpkin Ridge (both courses) offer very memorable experiences. Weather, however can be the worst at Bandon if you are unlucky. Port Ludlow off the Hood canal in Washinton is a great track too.

Difficult to pin it down to one. As far as scenery goes Tioman Island Golf Club just off Pahang, Malaysia is light years ahead of anywhere else I've been. If you miss the faiway you are in a lagoon, the jungle or the South China Sea!

Cape Kidnappers was a magnificent experience from the moment we dropped our bags to the moment we drove away. Service like no other place.

Burnham & Berrow GC is links golf in its purest form, its my favorite course in England.
