What are some unexpected golf courses on your bucket list?

University of Michigan Golf Course - Alister MacKenzie design I’ve heard great things about.
Pasatiempo - Another MacKenzie design. This may be a “usual suspect” but I still think it flies a little under the radar.
Pinehurst #4 - Overshadowed by #2 but I’ve heard great things.
I played both No. 2 and No. 4 last year. If you gave me one round at Pinehurst I’d go No. 4.
Don’t get me wrong, 2 is amazing and the history is great. But 4 is more scenic and just a more enjoyable round of golf.
Live like 2 hours from Pasatiempo. Was going to play there for my birthday a few months ago, but played Half Moon Bay instead
These are great additions! I think Pasatiempo and 4 definitely fly under the radar.
The Reserve at Moonlight Basin, Montana. I played it some years ago when it was just 9 holes. (back 9) It would be good to get out and play the full 18.
Wow just looked it up. Stunning.
That’s where they okayed the match this year correct? That place looked incredible
I just saw video of this course called northwood. Its 9 holes in upper caifornia. Pretty much in the middle of a redwood forest. It is also a MacKenzie course.
That’s exactly the one I was talking about :)
I just played there on Saturday. Absolutely gorgeous course!
Cabot cliffs, Nova Scotia. I'm in Ontario so it's not too far, just have to find the time.
Yes!!! 100% agree with this.
Funny you mentioned it was because of tiger woods video game; spyglass is on my bucket list because of that as well.
Those games were great. Haven’t been any good golf games since.
Not typical but booking sawgrass and dyes valley next year with my old man - beyond excited
Awesome! TPC Sawgrass is on my list.
Cape Arundel in Kennebunkport, Maine. Right on the ocean in Maine is going to be beautiful. It's a relatively short course but challenging to navigate, designed by Perry Maxwell and Walter Travis. I'm very ready for it to kick my ass. Hoping to play it next summer with my dad.
Beautiful. Hope you guys have a great time!
Cape Arundel isn’t that difficult especially since it’s not overly long. There’s definitely a few quirky holes though. It really shouldn’t kick your ass. It’s too bad there really aren’t any ocean views though. I know it was recently rated as #1 in the state by golf.com (and #2 by golf digest) but there are definitely other courses I would play over Cape Arundel. Check out Sunday River, Sugarloaf, Belgrade, and Boothbay Harbor for some amazing views and great courses. Don’t get me wrong, Cape Arundel is definitely worth playing, especially if you’re in the area.
Ohoopee Match Club: https://golfweek.usatoday.com/2020/01/24/beauty-of-match-play-on-display-at-gil-hanses-ohoopee/ Love match play as a format and would love to play a course where that's the whole deal. No keeping real score, no specific tee boxes, just negotiate a game and go play against your opponents.
Damn these are awesome. Ohoopee looks insane, but also looks really hard to get on. The newest course at PGA National is a match play course and looks amazing. Check it out.
Edit: Dad Miller (Tiger Woods’ HS team’s home course) should be on any Woods fans list. It’s a fun little muni.
