Sean:

Fair enough.

I'll put together such a list with a bit of time to think it through. I don't have any Asian or Aussie / NZ selections but will throw together something by early in the week.

The bulk of such couses will come from UK / Ireland, Canada, the island off North America and Mexico, to name just a few other places.

Sean, be curious to see your USA only listing of the top 25.

Matt

What happened?  Cat got yer tongue? 

Anybody else loosened their tongues yet?

It will become obvious that it is an "area specific" list, with a couple of exceptions.
It will also become obvious, that considering I played for 8 years on tour, I wasn't impressed by too many
courses out there.  Australia Tour played much better courses on average

1  CPC
2  Kingston Heath
3  Royal Melbourne
4  TOC
5  Pebble Beach
6  Plainfield
7  New South wales
8  NGL
9  Winged Foot
10 Victoria (Melbourne)
11 Ridgewood
12 Ridgewood  (any combos ;D)
13 Hollywood
14 Mountain Ridge
15 Royal Adelaide
16 Riviera
17 Forsgate
18 TPC sawgrass
19 Carnoustie
20 Essex County
21 Whipporwil

Grew up, errr..was raised ;)  on the Jersey Shore.
Dad was a long time Head pro at Deal.    Moved to California in '81 when I was 19.

Having parents and a grandfather that were golf pros made access pretty good for a snot nosed kid!

Speaking of cat grabbing their tongue -- where is your USA only top 25 listing that I asked for some time ago.

Its a bitch when yer memory fades.  At least my suspicion that the list I presented wasn't very memorable proved to be true.

"Sean:

Mainly Pennsy and MI courses.

Curious to know what you liked so much at OH/S.

Thanks ..."
