I have had the good fortune to play 7 of the Top 20 Toughest Golf Courses in the USA as picked by Golf Digest course-ranking panelists. I have not played the top 2, so they go on my priority list!
We have all played courses that we think are tough, which is obviously subjective, just like this list. The toughest course I ever played was a course in Colorado called Cougar Canyon near Trinidad, CO. It was a Jack Nicklaus course, and unfortunately, the 2007/2011 recession caused this course to close. Another course that I played recently, which is included on my ‘toughest’ list and Golf Digest’s, is Spyglass Hill near Pebble Beach. A real brute from the back tees!
Post your comments below on which course you think was the toughest you have played.
