Next closest is Pueblo El Mirage, a "Fuzzy Zoeller" design. Looks utterly awful.
I live on a mountain in the woods 8 miles outside of Lehighton, PA, where I'm presently adding four foot thick lead walls to my basement in anticipation of the next four years. Nearest privates to me I haven't played are two nine hole community courses, Naomi Lakes Timber Trails (1974 - likely Logan Steele and Ray Hansen) (32.3 miles) and Thornhurst Estates CC (Art Hitson 1963) (38.5 miles).Nearest public is a 1150 yard par three nine hole course at Newfoundland GC (Vance Megargel/John Rasmussen 1947) (51.6 miles)Of 18 hole private courses, the nearest are Panther Valley CC (Allamuchy, NJ) (RTJ Sr.) (52 miles), while in PA I haven't played Squires GC in Horsham, PA (George Fazio) (63.3 miles) and Old York Road CC (William/David Gordon) nearby (65.3).Nearest public 18 hole course I haven't played is too difficult to determine but is likely something in northern NJ, but in PA they would be Rock Creek GC in Nicholson, PA (72.5 miles) and Cricket Hill GC near Honesdale (78 miles).Other than lack of invites, I have no real reasons for not playing any of them and would enjoy playing them all, even if some are likely horrific architecturally based on drive by's.
East end of long island: Maidstone, Shinny, FH
What's the nearest course to you which you haven't played? Two categories: Public and Private. Public: Fair Way Golf Course - Lebanon, Indiana - 28.7 milesPrivate: The Club at Chatham Hills - Westfield, Indiana - 10.4 miles
I've now played all the Buffalo-area private clubs, so the next closest private clubs would be Hamilton, Ontario (any Ancaster members out there?) or Rochester (calling Oak Hill, Monroe, et al.) I still haven't hit the mom'n pops in between Buffalo and the PA border, so perhaps I'll get out to them this year.
