I've been playing golf courses and studying golf course architecture for a good bit of time now. Although I do have a natural inclination to ranking and ratings things, I've come to the conclusion that ranking golf courses against one another short changes them. In fact, during a round of golf one of my playing partners said to me, "I don't keep a list of the best golf courses I'v played, I just have places I like to play."
With that in mind, here are some courses that have a special place in my heart.
-Dismal River Golf Club White Course; Mullen, NE
-Dismal River Golf Club Red Course; Mullen, NE
-The Golf Club; New Albany, OH
-Rivermont Golf and Country Club; John's Creek, GA
