Top 5 Courses:
- Emerald Isle, Oceanside, CA
- Pickard Park, Indianola, IA
- Water Works, Kansas City, MO
- Whistler’s Bend, Roseburg, OR
- Toboggan, Milford, MI
Why these courses: I grew up at Emerald Isle and learned a great deal about distance control there. Pickard is one of the most beautiful courses I’ve ever played. Water Works has the perfect combination of fun and tough shots. Whistler’s Bend is an amazing course that starts off wooded and then transitions to a bomber course with great views. And the Toboggan Course is the most challenging course I’ve experienced. Every shot there is different and crucial to scoring well.
