ARCHITECT 1. Pine Valley. Pine Valley, NJ. ARCHITECT. George Crump / Harry S. Colt. YEAR BUILT. 1918. Analyzing a golf course need not be complicated. One simple but effective way to judge a design is by the quality of the course’s property, its hazards and greens.
2. Cypress Point. Pebble Beach, CA. ARCHITECT. Alister MacKenzie. YEAR BUILT. 1928. It’s almost inconceivable that land this stunning was made available for golf. For the lucky few who get to play here, they enjoy one of the game’s most inspiring walks as Alister MacKenzie’s design effortlessly transports the player around the diverse property.
3. St. Andrews (Old Course) St. Andrews, Scotland. ARCHITECT. Old Tom Morris. YEAR BUILT. 1400. The birthplace of golf features blind bunkers, huge double greens, quirks such as the Road Hole and Hell Bunker and strategic options that vary with the day’s wind.
4. Shinnecock Hills. Southampton, NY. ARCHITECT. William Flynn. YEAR BUILT. 1931. Venue for five U.S. Opens since 1986, most recently in 2018, this is William Flynn’s design masterpiece.
5. National Golf Links of America. Southampton, NY. ARCHITECT. C.B. Macdonald. YEAR BUILT. 1911. NGLA, or “National,” as it’s known, brought Seth Raynor and C.B. Macdonald together for the first time and what they created still stands as a marvel of strategic design.
6. Royal County Down. Newcastle, Nothern Ireland. ARCHITECT. Old Tom Morris. YEAR BUILT. 1889. The evolution over more than 130 years of this design is fascinating and has yielded what many consider to be the game’s finest front nine.
7. Royal Melbourne (West) Black Rock, Australia. ARCHITECT. Alister MacKenzie. YEAR BUILT. 1931. The immense appeal of Alister MacKenzie’s Golden Age masterwork is captured by former world No. 1 Nick Faldo: “I love the way it plays firm and fast-running, the way the bunkering frames and almost intrudes into the putting surfaces and the brilliance of the bunkering style with the native scrubby look.
8. Oakmont. Oakmont, PA. ARCHITECT. Henry Fownes. YEAR BUILT. 1903. No course thrives more on looking mean. Indeed, the beauty of Oakmont is how it doesn’t doll itself up, and yet to a purist the view from the crest of the hill on 15 is as breathtaking as any in the country.
9. Augusta National. Augusta, GA. ARCHITECT. Alister MacKenzie/Bobby Jones. YEAR BUILT. 1933. Augusta National is the vision of Bobby Jones and his chosen architect, Alister MacKenzie.
10. Sand Hills. Mullen, NE. ARCHITECT. Bill Coore/Ben Crenshaw. YEAR BUILT. 1995. Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw moved teaspoons of dirt to construct the most natural, hew-to-the-land layout built since World War II.
ARCHITECT 1. Pebble Beach. Pebble Beach, CA. ARCHITECT. Jack Neville/Douglas Grant. YEAR BUILT. 1919. The first great American public oceanside course, Pebble benefits from an ingenious routing that brings the player to the ocean’s edge, then onto much higher ground, before returning to the cliffs for the climactic final two holes.
2. Pinehurst (No. 2) Village of Pinehurst, NC. ARCHITECT. Donald Ross. YEAR BUILT. 1907. Donald Ross’s chef d’oeuvre rolls spaciously through tall longleaf pines in the Carolina Sandhills with holes culminating with legendary inverted-saucer greens.
3. Pacific Dunes. Bandon, OR. ARCHITECT. Tom Doak. YEAR BUILT. 2001. This unconventional Tom Doak treasure catapulted him into the spotlight. A slew of par-4s on the first nine gives way to a 3-3-5-4-3-5 start to the second nine.
4. Cabot Cliffs. Inverness, Nova Scotia. ARCHITECT. Bill Coore/Ben Crenshaw. YEAR BUILT. 2016. Canada’s top-ranked course is a six-year-old Bill Coore/Ben Crenshaw that alternates between big dunes at the southern end and cliffs at the northern end that rise more than 100 feet above the Gulf of St. Lawrence, inspiring Pebble Beach-like awe.
5. Bethpage (Black) Farmingdale, NY. ARCHITECT. A.W. Tillinghast. YEAR BUILT. 1935. The Black intimidates golfers with a sign at the 1st tee that recommends the course “only for highly skilled golfers.”
6. Kiawah Island (Ocean) Kiawah Island, SC. ARCHITECT. Pete Dye. YEAR BUILT. 1991. The blend of tidal marshes, scrub-topped dunes, live oaks and the soothing sound of the Atlantic on every hole make this one of the South’s most memorable playing experiences.
7. Casa De Campo (Teeth of the Dog) La Romana, Dominican Republic. ARCHITECT. Pete Dye. YEAR BUILT. 1971. Founder Alvaro Carta deserves credit for hiring Pete Dye in 1970 to build this centerpiece attraction for his retreat and then allowing him to have nearly three miles of coastline with which to work.
8. Bandon Trails. Bandon, OR. ARCHITECT. Bill Coore/Ben Crenshaw. YEAR BUILT. 2005. Several of Coore & Crenshaw’s finest designs are located at hard-to-access private clubs but many of their works thankfully are available to the public, often courtesy of developer Mike Keiser.
9. Bandon Dunes. Bandon, OR. ARCHITECT. David McLay Kidd. YEAR BUILT. 1999. Bandon’s original course is a David McLay Kidd design draped atop craggy headlands above the Pacific.
10. TPC Sawgrass (Stadium) Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. ARCHITECT. Pete Dye. YEAR BUILT. 1981. Some sniff at the artificiality of a course being hewn from a swamp, yet that’s also what makes the Stadium Course stand out from the crowd.
