I've been meaning to add some photos of Newburgh for a while (I'm a member there) but I've not had a chance to get to the course with a decent camera. These photos are all a few years old:
Woods Hole Golf Club... Woods Hole, Mass. (Where you catch the Martha's Vineyard Ferry)
I've mentioned WHGC many times, as it was where I first played a proper golf course (and firstly (and lastly) met a proper NYC hooker, courtesy of my Uncle Ben) and where my father and grandfather were long time members.

The hooker and the uncle. Maybe Dad and Grandpa, too!
Interesting that the bunker on the 11th features stacked sod (which seems quite Scottish to me) while the one on the 16th looks more like a bunker you'd find in Texas.

I will nominate a course that will have never ever been mentioned on here. Epsom Golf Club in Surrey. Not the RAC but Epsom...a downland course on common land, all on chalk, next to the racecourse. It is a course with the most natural (some crazy)greens, just extensions of fairways, It's wonderful. If you can chip and putt at Epsom you can chip and putt anywhere, I kid you not.
I don't have time to look through this whole thread tonight but there was a course Darius Oliver visited in New York that went into our book that I'd never heard of ... Mahopac ... even though it's less than twenty miles from where I grew up. Also, Granliden on Sunapee, the little Travis nine holer in New Hampshire, was another that I'd never heard of until Michael Moore mentioned it at dinner. And a third: North Jersey CC, with a few of the wildest Travis greens I've seen, where a member came up to me after an MGA speech last year to ask if there weren't really SOME greens that were just beyond the pale. I figured I'd better check it out before they destroyed it Ran's entry that I was not familiar with was Boonesboro CC in NC.
