Lake Geneva Country Club

I must confess I had never heard of LGCC until so well connected golf friends of mine started talking about it. The course sits on the magnificent Lake Geneva a vacation destination for well-heeled vacationers mostly in from the nearby cities of Chicago and Milwaukee. The oldest club in Wisconsin the course boasts the longest […]

Glens Falls Country Club

When the 2020 Golf Magazine Top 100 rankings came out, I read through the list to see what was new… To my delight, an old Donald Ross “hidden gem” called Glens Falls made the list (and even better after a google search I discovered it was just a few hour drive away from my house). […]

Caves Valley

Caves Valley is a wonderful course located outside of Baltimore.  While ranked in the second top hundred and not the “top 100” it is certainly underrated in my opinion.   The course is immaculately maintained, challenging and yet super fun.  Recently renovated to make way for the PGA Tour BWM Championship, the bunkering is beautiful and […]

Shoreacres

For a number of years now I have heard that Shoreacres is one of the best courses in the US and perhaps the nicest in Chicago (even over Chicago Golf Club). Located north of the city, and along Lake Michigan, the course did not disappoint and is worthy of all this golf-nerd hype.   Designed […]

Lake Shore Country Club

I had the chance to play Lake Shore Country Club along Lake Michigan just north of Chicago. The Donald Ross course was recently redone and is sparkling.   The course is pristine and varied. Much of the property and holes reminds me of Chicago Golf Club and Medinah (not shockingly given its relative proximity).   […]

The Ridgewood Country Club

Ridgewood is a New Jersey based course designed by Tillinghast. The course is rated in the top 100 in the US for Golf Magazine and the second hundred list for Golf Digest. The course has a similar feeling to other Tillinghast gems in the region such as Winged Foot, Bethpage Black, Quaker Ridge etc.). I […]

Whispering Pines

Located a few hours North of Houston, Whispering Pines offers a serene and beautiful golfing experience. The property is so large it takes a number of minutes to drive from the front gate on the property to the club house. Members are offered cottages to stay in on grounds and the hospitality of the staff […]

Ohoopee Match Club

One of the great new courses built in the last decade, Ohoopee has moved into a top 10 overall experience in golf. Casual, and chill, fun, and irreverent, the club provides all that is good about the new world of golf. The course is quirky and different (which I like a lot!)… there are 22 […]

Bayonne Golf Club

Located just a few miles south of lower Manhattan this modern course delights every time I get the chance to play. A feat of engineering the course is made from the dirt dredged from the Hudson River. Piles of sand make the course hilly and somewhat mountainous at times. Really enjoy it here and definitely […]
