Does anyone know if there is a ranking of the best ClubCorp golf courses? Mission Hills, Indian Wells, and Firestone are the obvious choices, but regardless of location what are the other best properties to visit?

Thanks!

Not clubcorp but part of the Sign gold/ONE is PGA National. I've played a few in Dallas and most in Houston, as well as Austin. Hills of Lakeway, Flintrock has to be my favorite of those in Texas.

I don't think there is any ranking.  To be honest a lot of the club corps courses are pretty similar so it's really hard to rank them.  Nothing spectacular but nice enough, safe courses designed by big name designers.  The other thing is available courses change constantly.  I just checked the website and my favorite course played through club corps is no longer listed (Pete Dye Golf Club in WV) but noticed TopGolf is a partner offering 50% off on Mondays.

After looking through the current available courses here's how I put what I've played (with club corp area listed).  Hard task because they are all pretty vanilla and similar.

Saddle Creek (no houses when I played) - Stockton
Traditions - Dayton
White Columns - Atlanta
Mission Hills (Dye) - Palm Desert
Firestone (West I really like the front 9) - Akron
Missin Hills (Dinah - mostly because they hold the LPGA event) - Palm Desert
Dayton Country Club (old classic that I really like but tough to compare to the modern courses) - Dayton
Country Club of the South - Atlanta
English Turn - New Orleans
Coto De Caza (South - most will probably like the north) - Orange County
Anthem (Ironwood)- Phoenix
Gainey Ranch - Phoenix
Ealges Landing (27 holes) - Atlanta
Coto De Caza (North) - Orange County
TPC Michigan - Detroit
Mission Hills (Palmer) - Palm Desert
Indian Wells (Classic) - Palm Desert
Glen Abbey - Toronto
Bears Best - Atlanta
Fireston (North - I don't really like the course) - Akron
Atlanta National - Atlanta
Pinehurst #9 - Pinehurst
Diamond Run - Pittsburgh
Fair Oaks - San Antonio
Seville - Phoenix
Carmel Valley Ranch - Monterey
Tucson National - Tucson
Omni La Costa (Legend) - San Diego
University Club of Milwaukee - Milwaukee
Old Ranch - Orange County
Indian Wells (Cove) - Palm Desert
Regatta Bay - Pensacola
Shadow Ridge - San Diego
Aliso Viejo - Orange County
Desert Falls - Palm Desert
Morgan Run (don't know which combo I played) - San Diego
Santa Rosa - Santa Rosa
Porter Valley - Los Angeles
Canyon Crest - Orange County
Lost Key - Pensacola


If you're looking for a trip I'd say Atlanta and Toronto are the places to go and none of the courses are worth a trip on their own.
I didn't list Firestone south because it's usually a significant up charge.
I want to get to Davenport Iowa and play Davenport.

Losing The Pete Dye club was a tragedy. Epic course and great staff...very friendly and unpretentious. Going to miss that course.

I liked the Classic Course at Indian Wells - conditions were perfect, staff was extremely hospitable, and the mountain views were great.

Did not have an opportunity to play the Cove course.
