Either the Dunes Club or Crystal Downs.
only one course for the rest of your life and you're going to take 9 holes over 18?
Have you ever played at the Dunes Club? I've played there more than 100 times probably and still find new ways to play the holes. There are so many tee choices and combinations it's never the same course. It's tough to beat Crystal Downs just because of the greens though. They could put those pins in places and watch people suffer forever. I'd probably pick the Dunes Club, just because of the caddies and the fact that you can find a new tee box combination every time you play.
No, i have not yet played the dunes club. Im sure its an amazing place, and the varied tee options allow you to play each hole differently each time around, I still just don't see the logic in going with 9 holes over 18. This is for the rest of your life, it just doesn't make much sense to me to cut your number of holes in half. From what i can tell the Dunes Club is your favorite place to play, however your favorite place to play isn't exactly the best answer to the question.
Anyway...Its your choice (not mine) i still just don't see the logic in taking the Dunes over a full 18.
Each and every answer to this question has a flaw. Personally I'd hate the world if i never got another opportunity to play links golf again, so I'd probably choose a links course. Dornoch is both the best and my favorite links course that i have played, so its the logical choice for me. All that being said, playing everyday in the unrelenting wind would be exhausting.
