One of the coolest parts of playing golf is that no two golf courses are the same. Fundamentally, the game is identical: you swing the same clubs, and you hit the same ball. But each game varies based on the course you’re playing.
From golf courses situated right next to a cliff to historic tracks that have hosted many major events, to beautiful courses by an ocean, there truly are some astonishing golf courses to play across the U.S.
Pacific Dunes is a beautiful course by the ocean. It doesn’t feel like it was built but discovered. A lot of the formations and sandy bunker lines remain the same as they have for centuries.
Pebble Beach Golf Links
Over the years, Pebble Beach has been home to some of golf’s greatest events. This includes the US Open, the PGA Championship, the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and the PURE Insurance Championship.
Pinehurst No. 2
Pinehurst No. 2’s long 18 holes boast the title of having the most golf championships hosted in the history of US golf. With legendary inverted-saucer greens and tall Longleaf pines, this course is a must-see for golfers visiting North Carolina.
Shinnecock Hills Golf Club
With sandy and rolling terrains, a majestic clubhouse, and strong Atlantic winds, Shinnecock is a beautiful course that some describe as “still giving off the 1890s feeling.”
