For me,
Bandon Dunes Resort

How about you?

With out a doubt...Wolf Creek in Mesquite Nevada.  There are 17 holes on the course, which would be signature holes on any other golf course.  Amazing experience and very affordable.  Highly recommended.

Hard to narrow it down but I'd say Grand Cypress New Course (although the other 27 holes North, South East are damn good too) in Orlando

Haven't played too many great ones.  Good courses that made an impression on me:

PGA West Stadium
Torrey South
Princeville Prince
Poipu Bay
La Quinta Mountain
Glen Abbey

Would love to catch a round at Bandon, Pebble and Wolf Creek with my Dad before he gets too long in the tooth.

Outside of the obvious (Pebble, Bethpage, etc), Kapaula Plantation in Hawaii was phenomenal to play. Lots of very fun holes and you can't beat that aqua blue water being your backdrop to nearly every shot.

Windsong Farm in Minnesota. Extremely private, not too many people know about it, but it is absolutely stunning, prestine, and challenging.

Cape Fear Golf Club in Wilmington, NC was the best for me, but I am a rookie when it comes to travel golf.

I haven't played a ton of "epic" golf courses, but I did get the opportunity to play Sherwood Country Club earlier this year and I must say it was awesome. Dustin Johnson and Wayne Gretzky were walking to the first tee as we made the turn and Craig T. Nelson was playing right behind us with his dog in the cart! Many celebrities are members here, but the course is the real star. It can be very challenging off the tee but I will say I enjoyed every moment of it.

For those who have played Wolf Creek, I'm trying to make a trip out there with 10+ buddies the middle of next year. We're looking at playing a mini tournament of sorts with 4 rounds of golf all at different courses. So obviously Wolf Creek would be one and I think Conestoga will be another, but do you guys have any opinion as to what 2 other courses would be the best? We may be open to making the drive to St. George one of the days if it's worth it.
Taylormade M2 9.5 set to 7.5 (Matrix Ozik 70 X-Stiff)
Callaway X2 Hot 3 Deep 14.5 Deg X-stiff (Aldila Rogue Green)
(Hybrid Out) Slot to be filled
Mizuno MP-64 4-5 (DG X-100)
Mizuno MP-4 6-PW (DG X-100)
Callaway MD2 50 deg
Vokey SM4 54 Deg
Callaway MD2 60 Deg
(Putter Out) Slot to be filled
Ball: Apply for position

I replaced the driver AND IRONS so now all the other clubs are nervous!

Justwellsy.... wait til we reopen March 1 at Sherwood. We're finishing a 20 million dollar renovation and it's going to be fantastic.

European Club - Wicklow, IRE ... Tough, fair, beautiful and fun. Could not have been better. I also have fond memories of Reflection Bay in Las Vegas growing up.
