I can't think back that far right now! But my last three [since the first of November] were:Old Macdonald [Renaissance Cup]Streamsong (Blue)GaveaAll of them were great fun. I really ought to play golf more often. Alas, it's snowy again in Traverse City.

I will update since I'm now in double digits of courses in 2012.From oldest to newest:Champions Golf Club (Jackrabbit), Houston, TXChampions Golf Club (Cypress Creek), Houston TX -- a great 36-hole day. Super cool place. The Club at Carlton Woods (Fazio), The Woodlands, TX -- pretty darn good Fazio. I know since I post here that I'm supposed to hate his stuff, but this is good.Mississippi Dunes Golf Links, Cottage Grove, MN -- bad golf course, but it was the earliest in March I have ever played golf in Minnesota.The Wilds Golf Club, Prior Lake, MN -- decent Weiskopf/Morrish CCFAD.Ravisloe Country Club, Homewood, IL -- very fun. very cool green complexes.Columbia-Edgewater Country Club, Portland, OR -- Very solid course. A few too many trees in some spots, but some fun holes. Eugene Country Club, Eugene, OR -- Really, really good. A great mix of challenging, but still fun. You have to hit good shots, but it doesn't just beat you up.North Oaks Golf Club, North Oaks, MN -- Stanley Thompson course that had work done by Tom Lehman et al in 2007. My first look at it since the work was done and I thought it was good. Better golf course than I remember with the exception of a couple of holes. Southview Country Club, West St. Paul, MN -- home course. Fun sporty, but short course. Some good green complexes.
