Who is your favorite course architect and what is the course you most enjoy that was designed by that architect?

Who is your favorite course architect and what is the course you most enjoy that was designed by that architect?

My favorite architect is Dan Hixson. His work that is my favorite is Wine Valley Golf Club in Walla Walla, Washington. Everybody loves the course. It is extremely fun to play. It is the only course I know where you can hit a putt as hard as you can, and if you wait long enough, it will come back and hit you in the back of the foot.
— George Walker | Portland, Ore.


Favorite architect is Seth Raynor and my favorite course by him is Shoreacres in Lake Bluff, Ill., just north of Chicago.
— Denny Davenport | Geneva, Ill.


Of all the courses I've played — and there have been many just in North and South Carolina alone — I would have a hard time choosing between Tobacco Road in Pinehurst and The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. Both courses require you to use every shot in your bag. Also, each have enough tee box choices to create a multitude of different options so that you would never get tired of either one. If I had to actually choose one I guess it would be Kiawah since it is built to be an island course.
— David Williams | Graham, N.C.
