As the winter months begin to subside and shed their heavy coats, there are a few universal signs that spring is on its way. The grass becomes greener, the trees begin to sprout new life, and the animals come out of their homes in order to survey their new surroundings. Many of these animals emerge carrying clubs, with the sole intent of knocking a few balls around and enjoying the great outdoors. With this in mind, the experts at GolfBallsUnlimited.com would like to present their picks on the “must-see” courses in America for the spring season.
- Pine Valley Golf Course (Pine Valley, NJ). Pine Valley is one of the premier courses in the country. Rated by many as the top course in America, Pine Valley’s creation, in 1913, set the standard for many courses to come after it. Designed by George Arthur Crump, the course was built on several key principles that made it, so no player would be able to see any hole other than the one they were currently on, no hole will run parallel to another, and no two holes should play in the same direction. With a simple yet elegant clubhouse, the course’s history is evident in its atmosphere, scenery, and design.
- Winged Foot Golf Club (Mamaroneck, NY). This invite-only course was founded in 1921 by a fellowship of members from the New York Athletic Club. Although listed as a par 72, the course par is lowered to 70 during USGA championships. Because of this, the ninth hole has become the longest par four in championship history. Situated in the historic area of New York, purchased from Chief Wappaquewam and his brother Manhatahan in 1661, this 36-hole course is a must-see for any serious golf enthusiast.
- Seminole Golf Club (Juno Beach, FL). Ben Hogan would famously spend 30 days a year at Seminole in order to prepare for that year’s Masters. Guests included then President Eisenhower, as well as the Duke of Windsor. Seminole Golf Club proudly holds to its traditional heritage and design in a time where other courses modify and change to appeal to the championships.
- Cypress Point Club (Pebble Beach, CA). In keeping with the films produced from the same state, Cypress Point is known for its dramatics and action when it comes to course design. The 18 holes of this course play alongside (and over) the Pacific Ocean, through the Del Monte Forest, as well as the coastal dunes. Founded in 1928, this course is a benchmark for quality courses in California, as well as the greater United States.
- Shinnecock Hills Golf Club (Long Island, NY). Built in 1892, Shinnecock lays claim to the oldest golf clubhouse in the U.S., as well as being the first to admit women from its genesis. In 2000, the golf club was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The U.S. Open has been hosted here four times in three different centuries, and will be held here again in 2018. For any golfer that also enjoys history, Shinnecock Hills should be on a short bucket list of destinations.
