I had a little down time last week and decided to list all of the golf courses I've played (63). Then decided to rank them (Ok, I had a LOT of down time). So I pose the question. What are your personal top 10 golf courses you've played. Use any criteria for your ranking system (beauty, challenge, prestige, pace of play, location, etc). Whatever makes you want to go back and play again.

Here are mine.

1. Pebble Beach
2. Spyglass Hill
3. Kapalua
4. Aviara
5. Indian Wells Celebrity
6. Ka’anapali – Ocean
7. Spanish Bay
8. Desert Willow - Firecliff
9. Ka’anapali – Mountain
10. Blackhorse

Alex, I guess if you don't sleep it creates a lot of down time. Thanks for bringing back some good memories with this post. My criteria would be if I was withing 100 miles, which courses I would be most disappointed in not playing. So am kind of screwing the SoCal courses.

Trump Scotland
Ballybunion
Cruden Bay
Tobacco Road
Old MacDonald
Pacific Dunes
The Prince Course
Royal Dornoch
Reflection Bay
Wolf Creek

Haven't played too many courses (roughly 65) but here is my top 10:

10. La Purisima - played twice, got my behind handed to me both times
9. Poppy Hills - before the renovation, but LOVED the layout
8. Gold Canyon (Dinosaur) - the perfect mix of difficulty and natural beauty
7. Journey at Pechanga - extremely enjoyable layout and they treat you right
6. Classic Club - my favorite desert course away from the madness of Palm Springs
5. Maderas - one time is all it took for this one to show its teeth
4. Rams Hill - still the most finely manicured course I have ever played
3. Aviara - a true test playing this right after the LPGA stopped by
2. Torrey Pines (South) - lucky enough to play here a few times a year and the ocean views rarely disappoint
1. Bayonet/Blackhorse (Bayonet) - will never forget how amazing the course conditions were when I played the first time; a perfect golf setting

Honorable mentions:
- Balboa: my home course and supremely underrated track that really tests your skills from the tips (ask Rat-Patrol)
- Coyote Creek (Tournament): a true oasis in the middle of nowhere. Loved the layout especially holes 2-8 on the other side of the freeway
- We-Ko-Pa (Saguaro): even outside of peak conditions, I loved the course layout and shot well
- Torrey Pines (North): yes the revamp ruined some of the charm, but it's still a wonderful variety of holes plus 15 is still the prettiest par 3 in golf

d%mn , I hate this question. There is a reason I rank courses by region on my blog because I hate trying to compare the whole list (874 courses and counting). I also like to split my lists between public/private and regulation/short. Oh well, here is an attempt at an overall top 10...

1. The Coeur d'Alene Resort - Coeur d'Alene, ID
2. Arcadia Bluffs - Arcadia, MI
3. Banff Springs - Banff, Alberta
4. Wolf Creek - Mesquite, NV
5. Cypress Point - Pebble Beach, CA
6. Cog Hill #4 (Dubsdread) - Lemont, IL
7. Lake of Isles (North) - North Stonington, CT
8. Harbour Town - Hilton Head Island, SC
9. Pasatiempo - Santa Cruz, CA
10. Paa-Ko Ridge - Sandia Park, NM

Honorable mentions (top 25 in no particular order, I guess) - Pumpkin Ridge (Ghost Creek) (North Plains, OR), Seven Canyons (Sedona, AZ), Cal Club (San Francisco), Sherwood CC, Stone Eagle and Bighorn (both courses) (Palm Desert), Spanish Bay and Pebble Beach, Pacific Dunes and Bandon Trails, Bethpage Black, Cascata, Torrey (South)...

Sentimental favorite will always be Mt. Shasta Resort, but that's a little different list for me than a pure top 10.
