I only get past the '1st hole', with Royal County Down ticked off. Played there last week! Hope to play St Andrew's and Muirfield in the next year or so.

Thanks, Kevin. I need to get over to your golf neighborhood.

I'd have to agree with Kevin on RCD, although Ballybunion comes in at a close second. Then again so does Waterville, Carne, The Old Course, Cruden Bay, Royal Dornoch, it's hard to pick just one!

Played Pebble and the Old Course at St. Andrews from the list above. I doubt I will ever play any of the other courses listed. One of just many frustrations in my golf life is that so many of the "top" courses in the USA are private and usually very exclusive.

Pine Valley is always at the top or near the top of many lists. I sometimes wonder if the media pundits and the golfing elite are pulling a fast one on the rest of us. Is there really a course called Pine Valley? Is it really as special a place as a select few want us to believe? How would we, the dregs of golfdom ever know? At least Augusta is on TV every year whereas Pine Valley is only known to the rest of us by its presence on top 10 lists.

Brian: I agree. No one can get on Pine Valley and Augusta. Well, I don't know anyone who can. The list, for the most part, caters to a very exclusive clientele.
