Gullane No. 1KilspindieKingsbarnsMuirfieldRenaissance ClubMusselburgh OldTrump ScotlandRoyal AberdeenCruden Bay (first time, loved it)North BerwickTrump, like it or not, is very cool. Unsurprisingly, money cant buy you time, so it needs a while to settle down. Heroic shots, great interaction with the dunes, nice bunkering but perhaps over-cooked on some of the par 5s like 4 and 18. The visuals are stunning. Far more playable than one might think by just looking at the pictures. It will unquestionably be one of the best courses in the UK, if not the world, once it has some good growth on the fairways, surrounds and the greens are up to speed. Very, very good indeed. It lives up to the big man's chat.

I am a heavy "no" lean on the golf but looking at my list above... perhpas I should reconsider... you know... broaden my horizons and all.
I must be doing something wrong Although I am proud of my list, and have a couple of really great courses on there, it pales in comparison to the lists that are being put up. Here is mine from most recent and not including replays. 1. Trysting Tree2. The Reserve Vineyards (North)3. Running Y Ranch4. Eugene Country Club5. Mallard Creek6. The Golf Club of Oregon7.
