My most enjoyable courses played have been
Carnoustie (despite the rain, mist and fog),
Pebble Beach (who could not enjoy that place),
St Andrews (atmosphere),
Bandon Dunes (existential),
Pasatiempo (sheer class), and
Royal Melbourne (pure golf).
Hoping to add Sand Hills and Royal County Down to that list over the next year or so.

So jealous! This is a great list. I have heard so many great things about Sleepy Hollow... Hoping to get out there someday. Fishers is the only course I have played of the ones you listed, interested to see where that ranks at the end of your season!

Honorable mention goes to Whiskey Creek in Maryland.

In 2019 I'll be going to Scotland for 4-5 rounds, so I'm sure I'll have a few new additions to the list.
