My top 10 golf courses

I’ve been very fortunate to have played a lot of great golf courses in my 38 years, and I get asked quite often what some of those golf courses are.  With the end of the golf season upon us I thought it might be a good time to share my Top 10.  Here goes…

10.  Congressional Country Club Blue Course (Washington, DC area)

9.  Castle Pines Golf Club (Denver area)

8.  Olympic Club Lake Course (San Francisco area)

7.  Olympia Fields Country Club North Course (Chicago area)

6.  Muirfield Village Golf Club (Columbus area)

5.  Los Angeles Country Club North Course (Los Angeles area)

4.  Shoreacres Golf Club (Chicago area)

3.  Chicago Golf Club (Chicago area)

2.  Oak Hill Country Club East Course (Rochester, NY area)

And my # 1 course?  That would be Pebble Beach Golf Links, in the Monterrey, California area.  I was fortunate to play there three times in a week while I was in college (for the grand sum of $110 total), all during a national championship (the US Amateur).  You can’t really beat that…
