Hard to choose. This is in no particular order although Riviera is #1.

Riviera CC
Pebble Beach
Spyglass
St Andrews Old Course
Muirfield
East Lake CC
Echelon CC
New Berwick GC
Barona Creek
Pelican Hill South

I wish I had been a better golfer when I played White Columns and Golf Club of Georgia. Can't really assess them against the others although I know I enjoyed them. Same with Pasatiempo (they had just punched the greens).

Edit to include the Prince Course at Princeville, Kauai. Probably in place of Pelican Hill because it is more exotic. Just loved playing toward the ocean then turning into the jungle. Fun design.

Here is my humble assemblage of my favored tracts.

1. Torrey South
2. Balboa Park
3. Torrey North
4. Ram's Hill
5. Maderas
6. Arrowood
7. Wood's Valley
8. La Costa Champions

Not as glamorous as some of these other lists, but these are courses I play on a semi-regular basis (Besides Los Verdes and Presidio that I played once each). It did say favorite courses, right?

Ten courses I've played that were very memorable - not specifically 'the best' layout, condition, etc., but most definitely want to play again... in no particular order, w/State. There are others, but have forgotten the course names over the years. At 58 1/2 years old, I have no idea how many golf courses I've played!

1. Pebble Beach (CA)
2. Spyglass (CA)
3. Oakland Hills (MI)
4. Baltusrol (NJ)
5. Hominy Hill (NJ)
6. Ballston Spa Country Club (NY)
7. Innisbrook Resort - Copperhead course (FL)
8. Torrey Pines South (CA)
9. PGA West - Nicklaus Tournament course (CA)

Tied for 10th/Honorable Mentions:
Black Gold, Goose Creek and The Crossings at Carlsbad in So. Cal, Farmstead Golf Club (NJ), Warrenbrook (NJ), Dunham Hills (MI), Leslie Park (MI), Cherry Creek Golf Club (MI), Pacific Grove (CA), Bodega Harbour (CA), Tanoan Country Club (NM), PGA West - Stadium course (CA)

Had to update my list to now include Pasatiempo.

1. DragonRidge Country Club (Las Vegas, NV)
2. Kapalua - Plantation (Maui, HI)
3. Wolf Creek (Mesquite, NV)
4. Southern Highlands (Las Vegas, NV)
5. Pasatiempo (Santa Cruz, CA)
6. La Quinta - Mountain (La Quinta, CA)
7. Hacienda Golf Club (La Habra Heights, CA)
8. Ojai Valley Inn (Ojai, CA)
9. Lakeside Golf Club (Toluca Lake, CA)
10. Rustic Canyon Golf Course (Moorpark, CA)

One thing this exercise made me realize is that I really skew toward the modern over the classics. While I love the classics I’ve played, I find more fun and excitement in my top 4, all of which are modern courses.

Finally, while I respect the fact everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion, a couple things really stand out to me on people’s lists. Nickesquire prefers Maderas to the Plantation Course at Kapalua? How can that be? Also, I see TPC Las Vegas on several lists. I know lots of GKers really enjoy that course, but it doesn’t even make my Top 10 in Nevada list. (I'd rank it 18th of the 33 Nevada courses I’ve played.) I’m not criticizing; just amused by how incredibly subjective all of this is.
