This wasn't supposed to be my first post of 2013 but the list is too exciting to ignore. As I start to plan where I would like to play in 2013 I can't help but glance at this list to see if I can add a new Top 100 to my list.
The 3rd hole at the Bayside Resort.
Last year I wrote about Golf.com's Top 100 Golf Courses You Can Play and I was fortunate enough to tackle six of them. This list comes to us from Golf Digest and golfers will have from 2013-2014 to play these gems. On this list I was able to play three of the top 100:
-The Dunes Golf & Beach Club (#52). I played here in 2007 on my annual golf trip and everyone loved it. I skipped over it on my last trip to Myrtle Beach but will I plan on returning in the future.
-Atunyote Golf Club (#55). This is in my personal top 10 of all time and could easily be top 5. It's a beautiful golf course in upstate New York that played host the PGA Tour for a few years. It runs about $200 but you can take advantage of the replay rate to maximize your buck. Add this to your list of courses to play especially if you're going to be upstate. (Read my review of Atunyote)
-Bayside Resort Golf Club (#79). This was the highlight of our 2010 Golf Trip to Ocean City and the Delaware Shore. We all agreed it was one of the most challenging we have played but also worth the pain. An excellent design by Jack Nicklaus, the course is carved out of creeks, marshland, and the woods to challenge every golfer. (Read my review of the Bayside Resort)
