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)
Gavea

All of them were great fun.  I really ought to play golf more often.  Alas, it's snowy again in Traverse City.

Pasatiempo...very cool and interesting golf course

SFGC...perhaps a technically perfect golf course, but I found it a tad bland

Cal Club...I very much enjoyed playing this golf course

AAC-Riverside...much better than its sister course, Highlands.  Fun, enjoyable, interesting golf

Chateau Elan...not too shabby, good middle holes

Atlanta CC...under-rated golf course, really great greens

Peachtree...WOW!!!  Best greens I've ever seen?  Perhaps.

Cherokee...great vibe, great land

Cobblestone...Uh-oh...avoid.

Gulph Mills...cool for an architectural buff.  Lots of fun shots.  8 green is really cool!

Rocky Crest... GW Canadian #3 modern; routing is really incredible given the terrain; I was less impressed today than in the past, but it's still really good.

Bigwin Island... My home course... profile upcoming.  I love it.

Hawk Ridge (Meadow's Nest)... ...  ::)

Sand Creek Station... In some tough company with some course nearby in Hutchinson, but there are some seriously good holes out there

Prairie Dunes... It's not a dog track

Wichita CC... Really should be the second part of any 1-2 punch with PD.  Amazing greens.  6 green is one of the best I've seen. Ever.

Flint Hills National... So what's everyone's problem with that tree on 18? Didn't seem so bad to me.

The Patriot... Fun Fun Fun.  RTJ Jr et. al. did most everything right here.  Not walkable, but that was embraced in the routing.

Muskogee CC... Little known Maxwell.  Really good set of greens and a couple of standout par-3s.  Not his best, but worth seeing on a tour of Maxwell's work.

Southern Hills... Much has been said about it before.  I really liked it; wouldn't mind if one or two trees were struck by lightning, but a really good and varied set of greens and (not surprisingly) a tremendous routing on perfect golfing terrain.  12th is world-class.

I will update since I'm now in double digits of courses in 2012.

From oldest to newest:

Champions Golf Club (Jackrabbit), Houston, TX

Champions 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.

Your playing partner at Carlton Woods helped make it a fun day.

I'm posting a new list; it's been a few months, and I feel like going through the exercise.  Only a few new ones.  This takes me back to October last year.

PR-Witch Hollow
PR-Ghost Creek
Half of Waverly GC, restovation looks very good.
Stone Eagle
Eldorado
PGA West - Nicklaus Tournament
PGA West - Stadium
Bandon Trails
Old Macdonald
Pacific Dunes

Could be worse.  Pumpkin has been very wet this spring, and the rough is brutal.

Burnham x6 - the rough is getting narsty - time to cut back on the golf!

Camberley Heath - so close to superb, but one can't really go wrong with playing a Colt

Pennard - it was great to go back after a long lay-off and see how good this course really is

Painswick - nuff said

Cleeve Cloud - when folks talk about wide I will forever use this course as the measuring stick - almost the exact opposite of the much more clausterphobic Painswick

Corey, I'm guessing the Mystery courses will feature quite prominently on this site in months to come...

Jeff, I have elaborated (a little) on dingle on the Links website / our blog. It is most definitely worth a trip. Raw geography, unassuming course that let's you play.
