Playing 6, 55, and 64 from the top 100 US public courses this weekend. PH #2, Tobacco Road, and PH #8.

Have you played Pasatiempo ????.....that place is talked about like a golf Mecca bu in reality it is a dump !!!!  I wouldn't rank it in the top 40 in CA in terms of playing conditions.  

* Sorry but ive been there 5 times over the last 3 years and each time it gets worse and each time the pro shop tells me that I caught the course at a bad time......I doubt it ever has a good time......

So why keep going back as I'm assuming you are paying?

I played it in 2016 as part of a larger SF trip and was great.  The architecture is genius Mackenzie, you have to forget about the homes around the course, although I admit it takes away from it.  I thought the course was in very good shape as well, not immaculate but definitely above average.  Not long, but greens are very tough.

I have played Pinehurst as well after the C&C renovation and it was awesome!

So respectfully disagree.

Pasa had water restriction brought on them. Fairways were purple.  Firm and fast though.  MacKenzie lived on the course. If anything its underrated. People are such maint whores and don't get real golf.

Italics are ones on the list over the next 12 months. From playing all of these I can tell I am not a Donald Ross fan. Just played Pinehurst #2, not a huge fan. After Pebble I would say my favorites are Dormie Club and Bethpage.

I'll do the public list since I've at least played 6 of those:

8. Bethpage Black - Farmingdale, NY
30. Quarry at Giants Ridge - Biwabik, MN
48. Wolf Creek - Mesquite, NV
57. Wilderness at Fortune Bay - Tower, MN
58. Classic at Madden's Resort - Brainerd, MN
69. Troy Burne - Hudson, WI

My order would go

1. Bethpage
2. Wolf Creek
3. Wilderness
4. Quarry
5. Troy Burne
6. The Classic

Yes.  It's a good course but highly overrated in my opinion.
