This thread is my jumping-off point for 2010.  I want to add to my top 25 courses.  That would be a subsequent step to this thread:  which would be your bottom five courses that would drop off first?  I imagine that, for all but a few, this is a fairly succinct process.  My bottom five would depend on the mood I was in.  For now, I would drop Tullymore, Southern Pines, Arcadia Bluffs, Victoria Hills and Cherry Hill
Maybe for 2022

Sven, I see no reason why we can't run out and play the Reverse Jans sometime this winter.  Seems like a good February project.

So when is the much mythologized 2010 RJ Open? :)

Stay tuned; my advice is to watch the board and keep a flexible schedule these next few weeks...

Weather lately has been promising; a torrential mid-winter rainstorm is getting rid of most of the snow that had been covering the course.

David:

The current ground covering may need to ice over a bit, don't see us getting much roll at the moment.

Happy Holidays.

I can't recall there ever being one.  That's actually a great idea.  Remembering my worst 25 courses is much easier than trying to rank my best 25.

You were in the area for Lehigh and LuLu and didn't see Huntingdon Valley?  We're going to have to rectify that...although I might be jumping ahead of myself...

Hope all is well!

George,

Pacific Dunes should have been 9th.  Thanks for calling that to my attention.

Bogey (now you know why!)

Jim, I was invited to play Lehigh (I miss Redanman) and LuLu - not so with Huntingdon Valley.  LuLu isn't as great as my ranking might suggest - it's simply everything a golf course should be in my opinion - nothing more,  nothing less.

Happy New Year.

Mike

MY TOP 25 USA ...

In 5 sections of fives ...

I jotted these down very quickly -- may have one or two others to insert and then drop off a few others ...

a work in progress ...

First Five

Shinnecock Hills -- the first among equals for me
Cypress Point -- just pure magic and beauty
Merion / East -- nothing packs as much design punch as this layout
Oakmont -- should be a major host every 7-8 years whether US Open or PGA. Just the supreme parksland layout of first rate
Sand Hills -- surreal setting with golf at its core. nuff said.

Second Five

Pine Valley -- needs to get rid of some trees and the underbrush to move up for me.
Ballyneal -- pure fun, entertainment and never a dull moment -- only measurably so-so element for me was the final two par-4's.
Rock Creek -- simply loved the layout -- only weak hole for me the finale. the best collection of Doak par-4 holes I have ever played
NGLA -- any design student needs to see it -- awesome in all senses of the word for the scope of what it provided. citizen kane golf
Winged Foot / West -- the most intense and discerning course that elicits the least amount of love.

Third Five

Crystal Downs -- the toughest short course one can play.
Prairie Dunes -- when wind is up -- the yardage becomes immaterial -- great greens and the 8th is on my short list for great holes.
Pebble Beach -- when firm and fast and the wind up it's everything and more. still has a few so-so holes that keep it down for me.
Fisher's Island -- hard to beat on a sunny summer afternoon -- the best of the Raynor layouts for me.
Pinehurst #2 -- when firm and fast and with ample fairway widths works for me -- takes more than one play to "get it"

Fourth Five

Black Mesa -- just a superb public facility for those unable to get to the ones listed above it. Superb scenery and range of holes.
The Kingsley Club -- likely should be higher but would need a second visit to confirm my original lovefest for it.
Riviera -- love when the course plays firm -- incredible range of decisions for player to decide upon. 18th is everything they say & more.
The Ocean Course / Kiawah -- often thought of as a unrelenting beast -- the course has such a range of elasticity and even playability
Pacific Dunes -- wonderful setting and the best ending with a par-4, par-3 and par-5 closing.

Fifth Five

Plainfield -- one of the most underrated layouts in the metro area and flies way too low nationally.
Bayonne -- just totally man created and works well even when in tight quarters -- goes beyond shadow creek in such a similar category
Mauna Kea -- great upgrade from Rees Jones and likely the best RTJ course I have played. The 11th is one of the best long par-3 holes
Bethpage / Black -- don't like many of the post changes -- the 18th especially -- but still a top notch design and test.
Red Ledges -- gets little attention but Jack's most striking layout with UT scenery and design elements that are first rate.


p.s. Have notplayed ANGC or Friar's Head which likely would compete for a mention

...
Flossmoor Country Club

That place must be lousy with dentists.

I guess, I need to at least add my #1 here

Jawbone Creek Country Club, also popular with dentists and their sons.
