Augusta National, Georgia
This incredible course is 7,435yards and a Par 72. The annual Masters Tournament has been held here since 1934 with only a break during WWII. There has been many different design changes over the years with some re-routing, water hazards, greens, mounds and lengthening as well as re-bunkering.
Pine Valley, New Jersey
Pine Valley golf course is 7,057yards of beauty. This is a par 70 course and blends together penal, heroic and strategic elements throughout each hole.
Cypress Point Club, California
Pebble Beach is home to the 6,524yard Par 72 course that is an absolute delight to look at. This course stretches through sand dunes, coastline and cypress. This course has been hardly touched and remains an iconic course.
Shinnecock Hills G.C., New York
With a distance of 7,041 yards and being a Par 70 this golf course has been remodeled twice and even almost entirely been replaced in the 1930s. Virtually untouched it is now in the process of some parts being restored in preparation for the 2018 US. Open.
Royal County Down G.C, Newcastle
This beautiful course in Northern Island is 7,186 yards and is a Par 71. The only trouble is the weather isn’t always the best! But if you get this course on a clear day you can see the Mountains of Mourne to the South and Dundrum Bay to the East. It is a very picturesque course! Over the past 120 years it has been refined multiple times this course has plenty of bunkers to steer clear of.
Royal Dornoch G.C. (Championship) Sutherland
6,704 yards and a Par 70 this course is arguably one of the most natural in the world. The famous Donald Ross called this course home as he was born here and learned how to play on the links. The biggest obstacle – playing into the strong wind!
The Old Course at St. Andrews Links
Located in Fife, Scotland this course measures in a 7,279 yards and is a Par 72. This is considered the benchmark course and is used to create new courses either copying or completely changing the course design.
Muirfield, East Lothian
Muirfield is a low-key 7,209 yards par 71 course that is pretty straightforward. It must be noted that the 11th shot is a blind tee off! Again the weather in particular wind is going to be the biggest difficulty with this course.
Royal Melbourne G.C. (West) Victoria
The first Australian course to make the list! This is 6,643 yards and is a Par 72 course that fits into the contours of the natural landscape. The greens are really neat and are smaller versions of the surrounding topography.
What would be your dream course if you could pack up and go?! I’d be happy with any of the above- that’s for sure. What would be your dream golf set to take with you? Any new accessories you would buy specifically for a trip to your ideal golf course? Perhaps the colder climate ones require some heavy duty winter gloves and a very sturdy umbrella, whereas the warmer ones maybe a new golf push cart?
