City, State: Colts Neck, NJ
Price Range: $30-45 Residents (Over $50 for Non-Residents)
Course Website: http://www.hominyhill.com / https://www.monmouthcountyparks.com
Brief Description: For a course that's part of a county park system, its meticulously maintained with fast greens but also provides penalizing rough. It's designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and is just a classic beautiful parkland design. There's no "gimmicky" holes and a great course to walk. It's an absolute steal for residents but still worth the price for non-residents. It may not be a hidden gem for golfers in New Jersey, but probably is for anyone outside the state considering its location in the suburbs and away from the most popular tourist areas in the state.

- A brief description of why you think it's a hidden gem (and please include a photo if you have one!):
- The course is usually in decent to great shape and for the price it is very hard to beat in the greater Austin area. The front nine is a links type of layout, while the back nine provides dramatic elevation changes as the holes wind through pine trees along the Colorado River.

- Course Name: The Course at Sewanee
- City, State: Sewanee, TN
- Price Range: $41 on weekends
- Course Website: http://www.thecourseatsewanee.com/
- A brief description of why you think it's a hidden gem (and please include a photo if you have one!): Renovated by Gil Hanse's Team in 2013. Just a fun course to play. It is on top of Monteagle Mountain and so it stays a little cooler up there than in the valley below. (Guy in pro-shop said about 8* cooler is a good rule of thumb.) It is only nine holes but is worth going around a second time. It is only about twenty minutes from Sweeten's Cove as well. You can play your early nine at Sweeten's then go up the mountain to play the nine at Sewanee to beat the afternoon heat. The view from #3 green is pretty awesome. Very walkable course despite being on a mountain.

- Highlands Park
- Birmingham, AL
- Fun course to play in Birmingham. Great views of the city on several holes. Some challenging holes but some easy short par 4's to offset. Great price to get some solid conditions and generally pure rolling bentgrass greens. For the price you will not find a better spot in Bham - especially considering proximity to everything downtown/five points area.

I do believe me, I travel for work around the country but NE/Mid Atlantic does have some of the best courses. Cheers
