A deserving top 100 public golf course in the country, and top 3 in the state of Arizona, Quintero Golf Club in Peoria features desert golf at its finest: Challenging and strategic target golf with impeccable conditions, beautiful scenery and some of the most memorable par threes anywhere.

Nakoma Golf Club in Madison, Wisconsin is a great classic parkland course originally designed by Tom Bendelow and opened in 1925.

We took great advantage of this perfect Fall day, got some nice photos and played excellent golf including some of the best greens I’ve played in Wisconsin.

Two thumbs up, Nakoma.

I knew I was in for a treat when I was asked to play Green Bay Country Club, but I had no idea how much of a treat that was going to be.

Green Bay CC is one of the top 3 private golf courses I’ve played in the state.

There’s not a more dramatic course or golf landscape in Wisconsin – not even in Sheboygan.

Green Bay is the best golf course hardly anybody knows about.

My wife and I recently spent a couple nights at Geneva National celebrating our 4-year anniversary.

The brand new Suites at Geneva National were the perfect home base for our weekend getaway, which involved outstanding golf, luxurious and comfortable accommodations, spa treatments and a tremendous culinary experience.

My favorite of the three courses at Medinah Country Club, Course 1 features great design, terrific routing and the best of all worlds: A lot of wide, forgiving fairways with strategic playability, great par 3’s and 5’s and a little bit of tree-lined parkland style thrown in for good measure.

Last month I had a 9 am tee time with my cousin, Frank, at The Club at Lac La Belle. I’d been there earlier in the season, and several other times for preview play and had a good idea of the shots – especially drone shots – I most wanted to get….

Here are some of my favorites.
