I live in NYC and LOVE Dyker Beach...not because it is the greatest course, but because it is an example of how golf can bring together lots of different types of people (city golfers, kids, cops and potential Sopranos cast members)...as I travel I'm always looking for these types of courses that bring together weird communities.

I saw the Adventures in Golf about the Compton Par 3, interested in what other people think in their communities. As I travel its great to play Tour courses but nothing is better than an unexpected Muni.

Played a course in Clarksville, MO called Eagles Bluff that fits this bill. Course is in the middle of nowhere on the Mississippi River bluff on the Missouri-Illinois border. Conditioning was a little suspect, but the people were really nice and the layout was fantastic. I would definitely go back.

NYC courses are such a cool place to meet freaks, geeks, and everything in between. Van Cortlandt, Clearview, and Pelham/Split Rock have some interesting folks. I've played public and private golf in a lot of places, but the NY metro and surrounding area is the best!

Iíve played Pelham/Split Rock, my playing partner and I were paired up with a Bronx native who owned 50+ Mr. Softee trucks and worked out of Huntís Point.  He kept us entertained the whole afternoon in a good way.  You look around and see golfers dressed like Ricky and others dressed in jean shorts and wife beaters.   Conditions may not be ideal but theyíre fun courses and the company makes the round.
