Ron: I am thinking Matt is none other than Bart Bradley's son, star of many of Bart's pics from his course reviews.

I've gotten to know the others ranked above it better after multiple rounds. Good GCA (IMHO) takes time to flesh out. If i'm lucky enough to play NGLA many more times, from the looks of it there's a healthy bounty of architectural genius out there that will bring me to tears just like those above it do. It's actually the only course in my top 10 i've only played once. Lastly, ranking golf courses is one of my pet peeves, I put this list out there more so that you all have a better idea of where i'm coming from critically, in reality this list changes every day. Old Mac, which was also on the list, I played 90 holes at over the course of 4 days (45 one day) and in different winds, so i was able to really sink my teeth into the brilliance there.- Nuke is my real name
