We have talked about closed courses, the worst courses, so why not discuss your favorite course. Your favorite course may not be the “best” course you have played, it just may be a course you scored well on or suited your game well.
I really liked Tidewater, I know some people have issues with the course, I just think it is a fantastic layout and very scenic.August 3, 2019 at 11:05 pm #46461
I would have to say mine would be Prestwick. Just like the golf course. Have had both good and bad rounds there but it is fun, fair and a very good test of golf.
I don’t have a problem with Tidewater as far as the course is concerned. Very good course, good test of golf. The stupid local rule concerning balls hit into homeowners property and whether they are found or not makes no sense to me considering it is “off the course”.August 4, 2019 at 7:12 am #46463Bob NewmanParticipant
What local rule do they have? All local rules have to come from approved USGA section of Rules.August 4, 2019 at 7:22 pm #46468
There is NO OB at Tidewater. Yet you have houses along the fairway. Played there in the WA. Was told by the pro, if you it you ball into a yard, drop the ball outside of the yard…no penalty. But, if you do not find you ball in the yard…it is not deemed a lost ball and you must return to where you hit the shot from and hit another.August 4, 2019 at 7:36 pm #46469
Rick when you say you must return to where you hit the shot from, are you hitting 1, 2 or 3.
1 – The shot never happened
2 – Rehit without penalty
3 – Rehit with 1 stroke penaltyAugust 5, 2019 at 4:58 pm #46491
Bob when you have a chance please shoot me an email

My favorite course is Kings North. I’ve never really shot great there, but I think it is a real challenge and really beautiful. Easy course? Possum Trot.August 9, 2019 at 7:55 am #46552Timothy TullioParticipant
True Blue for me.August 9, 2019 at 8:48 am #46554Rick MurgittroydParticipant
I think my All-Time favorite would be the Thistle. Love that place. Glen Dornach a close second!August 9, 2019 at 11:36 pm #46566
Tommy, see Rule 18-2 for the Lost Ball scenario. It explains the Stroke and Distance pretty well.August 10, 2019 at 12:43 am #46567
Rick I am very familiar with the rules, here is what you wrote:
” . . . . But, if you do NOT find you ball in the yard…it is NOT deemed a lost ball and you must return to where you hit the shot from and hit another. . . . . . ”
Did you mean to say if you do not find your ball it IS deemed a lost ball . . . .August 10, 2019 at 4:25 am #46568Ricky HermanParticipant
I think the best ones are the 5-6 courses you play when you arrive in MB. The practice rounds and the four during the tourney. Why because its 10 days at the beach and away from the work grind. VACATION. Good luck all.August 10, 2019 at 9:22 pm #46575James CarterParticipant
My favorite is Pine Lakes, followed by Grande Dunes.August 11, 2019 at 2:28 pm #46582Lee HooperParticipant
