1. Golf Club of Houston Tournament Course. Humble, Texas. Although the course isn't very walkable, the host site for the Shell Houston Open has the best collection of holes of any daily fee in the area.
2. Cypresswood Golf Club's Tradition Course. Spring, Texas. Down to 36 holes after one course closed a few years ago, the pine tree-lined Cypresswood Golf Club has two solid layouts in the Traditions Course and Cypress Course.
3. Woodforest Golf Club. Montgomery, Texas. Designed by local resident and former PGA Tour player Steve Elkington, Woodforest Golf Club, located just north of The Woodlands, just keeps getting better with time.
4. BlackHorse Golf Club's South Course. Cypress, Texas. Another terrific, 36-hole facility, the South Course is more memorable of the two Jim Hardy-Peter Jacobsen designs northwest of Houston, primarily because of the quarry holes on the back nine.
5. Memorial Park Golf Course. Houston. This original 1936 John Bredemus design in the middle of the city played host to the Houston Open from 1951 to 1963 and was wonderfully restored in 1995.
6. Meadowbrook Farms Golf Club. Katy, Texas. One of Greg Norman's better designs, Meadowbrook Farms made quite a splash when it opened in 1999. The layout features some of the area's best risk-reward holes, especially when it comes to the par 5s.
7. Tour 18 Houston. Humble, Texas. This is the original replica course. And while there are other courses that have tried to mimic Amen Corner at Augusta, Tour 18 Houston might have the best rendition.
8. Wildcat Golf Club's Highlands Course. Houston. There are two 18-hole courses at Wildcat, both designed by Roy Case, both built on a landfill and old oil field, and both feature great views of the city and NRG Stadium.
9. The Wilderness Golf Course. Lake Jackson, Texas. For those not familiar with the area, this Jeff Brauer-designed Audubon Sanctuary course qualifies as a hidden gem.
10. Augusta Pines Golf Club. Spring, Texas. This former home of the Insperity Championship on the Champions Tour is owned by one of the previous owners of Tour 18.

1. Pebble Beach. Pebble Beach, CA. ARCHITECT. Jack Neville/Douglas Grant. YEAR BUILT. 1919. The first great American public oceanside course, Pebble benefits from an ingenious routing that brings the player to the ocean’s edge, then onto much higher ground, before returning to the cliffs for the climactic final two holes.
2. Pinehurst (No. 2) Village of Pinehurst, NC. ARCHITECT. Donald Ross. YEAR BUILT. 1907. Donald Ross’s chef d’oeuvre rolls spaciously through tall longleaf pines in the Carolina Sandhills with holes culminating with legendary inverted-saucer greens.
3. Pacific Dunes. Bandon, OR. ARCHITECT. Tom Doak. YEAR BUILT. 2001. This unconventional Tom Doak treasure catapulted him into the spotlight. A slew of par-4s on the first nine gives way to a 3-3-5-4-3-5 start to the second nine.
4. Cabot Cliffs. Inverness, Nova Scotia. ARCHITECT. Bill Coore/Ben Crenshaw. YEAR BUILT. 2016. Canada’s top-ranked course is a six-year-old Bill Coore/Ben Crenshaw that alternates between big dunes at the southern end and cliffs at the northern end that rise more than 100 feet above the Gulf of St. Lawrence, inspiring Pebble Beach-like awe.
5. Bethpage (Black) Farmingdale, NY. ARCHITECT. A.W. Tillinghast. YEAR BUILT. 1935. The Black intimidates golfers with a sign at the 1st tee that recommends the course “only for highly skilled golfers.”
6. Kiawah Island (Ocean) Kiawah Island, SC. ARCHITECT. Pete Dye. YEAR BUILT. 1991. The blend of tidal marshes, scrub-topped dunes, live oaks and the soothing sound of the Atlantic on every hole make this one of the South’s most memorable playing experiences.
7. Casa De Campo (Teeth of the Dog) La Romana, Dominican Republic. ARCHITECT. Pete Dye. YEAR BUILT. 1971. Founder Alvaro Carta deserves credit for hiring Pete Dye in 1970 to build this centerpiece attraction for his retreat and then allowing him to have nearly three miles of coastline with which to work.
8. Bandon Trails. Bandon, OR. ARCHITECT. Bill Coore/Ben Crenshaw. YEAR BUILT. 2005. Several of Coore & Crenshaw’s finest designs are located at hard-to-access private clubs but many of their works thankfully are available to the public, often courtesy of developer Mike Keiser.
9. Bandon Dunes. Bandon, OR. ARCHITECT. David McLay Kidd. YEAR BUILT. 1999. Bandon’s original course is a David McLay Kidd design draped atop craggy headlands above the Pacific.
10. TPC Sawgrass (Stadium) Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. ARCHITECT. Pete Dye. YEAR BUILT. 1981. Some sniff at the artificiality of a course being hewn from a swamp, yet that’s also what makes the Stadium Course stand out from the crowd.
