Top Ten Courses On My Bucket List

I have been playing golf my entire life, I have a burning passion for anything golf, whether its playing, watching, or talking about.

1. Augusta National Golf Club

Augusta National Golf Club is an easy first pick for me. This is one of the most exclusive courses in the entire world. The only way to become a member is for the club to reach out and offer it to you. The course is the host of the Major tournament The Masters every year, where Scottie Scheffler Just won this past spring. Although this seems like a long shot that I could ever play here this course will always be at the top of my list.

2. Pebble Beach Golf Links

Another iconic course Pebble Beach in California is known for its breathtaking views over the Pacific Ocean. The course is known for hosting the annual Pebble Beach Pro-Am which has really helped the course gain popularity with golf fans around the world.

3. Shadow Creek Golf Club

This one I can actually check off my bucket list! I had the opportunity to play here in the winter of 2016. And let me tell you this course is everything its promised to be. The views are breathtaking of the mountain ranges in the background on every hole, but for a desert course there is so much greenery. While the course is extremely challenging I would highly recommend playing here if the opportunity presents itself.

4. St. Andrews Golf - The Old Course

Another course that you have probably heard of, they are known for having the widest fairway in the sport of golf. This is a truly historic course located in Scotland known as one of the oldest golf courses with golf being played on the grounds in the early 15th century. This is another obvious addition to my list as this is one of the most historic courses in the game of golf.

The host of the Waste Management Open I almost want to be a spectator at the WM Open more than I want to play this course. This tournament is one of the most fan friendly tournaments of the year, and it has brought so much attention to the course itself, leading me to put it on my top ten.

6. TPC Sawgrass

This course is the host of the Players Championship, and has one of the most iconic holes in the sport of golf. The 17th hole is a short par three island hole with a tiny pot bunker in the front of the green. For just a pitching wedge into this green it is known for swallowing the tour pros golf balls being a very tough green to hold.

7. Oakmont Country Club

This course is another older course with a lot of history behind it. The course is divided by the Pennsylvania Turnpike cutting right through the course. The iconic image for this course however is the Church Pew Bunkers that come into play on the 3rd and 4th holes of the course. They are also known for their 18th green that is bigger than most practice putting greens at other courses.

8. Winged Foot Golf Club

This course is supposed to be one of the toughest courses out there. They have hosted six different U.S. Opens, and are known for chewing up and spitting out golfers. Many of the winning scores at this course are usually over par, which if you watch professional golf this almost never happens.
