2. Maple Hill - Marshall Street, Leicester, MA
3. Waterworks - Kansas City
4. Fountain Hills - Phoenix, AZ

My list seems to change day to day with my moods so I won't even try to assign an order.

Top 10 (in no particuliar order)

Woodshed - Paw Paw, WV
Rockburn Branch- Ellicott City, MD
Killens Pond- Felton, DE
Highbridge Gold, Highbridge, WI
Blueberry Hill, Highbridge, WI
Heroes (private course) Hartford, CT
Little Lehigh Parkway- Allentown, PA
Codorus State Park (54 holes) Hanover, PA
Warwick - Warwick, NY
Druid Hill- Baltimore, MD

Well that reflects my bias for today.

Honorable mention goes to Rutgers in New Brunswick, NJ. I'm playing there tommorrow in the Jersey Jam. I love the Jam layout that we play in tournaments. The only reason it didn't make the top ten is because the non Jam layout is too short and doesn't include the super cool pond holes.

1. Seven Oaks - Nashville, TN
2. Henry Horton - Chapel Hill, TN
3. Barfield Crescent - Murfreesboro, TN
4. Two Rivers - Nashville, TN

I started playing about 3 months ago and I'm as addicted as it gets. Those are the only courses I've played so far, anyone on here been to any of them? This week I finally managed to shoot par at Seven Oaks, so I think I'm making some decent progress.

Seven Oaks is a great course, played it on my way to Bonaroo a couple years ago. I forgot the name though cause we played so many...

I still havent gotten to play any courses outside of colorado (I still havent played all the courses I would like to. but my top 5 colorado courses would be

1. Copper (have not yet played aspen)
2. Frisco (another good mountian course, much less elevation change)
3. Pacos Gultch (my new home course 15 minutes away from my denver house)
4. Badlands (alot of elevation change for a in city course, w/ the blair witch holes making the course 27 theres some tight stuff too)
5. Johnny Roberts (sure its just a putt and mid coruse, but it still challenges me, I can throw -11 (my record there) one round than even the next. )

1. Waterworks Park-Kansas City, MO
2. Frisco (the view)-Frisco, CO
3. Rolling Hills-Lamoni, IA
4. Frontier Park, Hays, KS
5. Chautauqua Park, Beatrice, NE

Waterworks gets my #1 vote because it has a little bit of everything. Frisco is beautiful and the ski lift chairs on each tee pad are very unique. Each time I get to play a new course it's an adventure and I look forward to playing many more!
