DESCRIPTION: The world’s best muni? In the wake of its USGA-funded makeover by Rees Jones, to bring it up to spec for the US Open (hosted in 2002 and 2009), this gem is the brawniest parkland course in the USA. It offers the most golf for your money in America, but be prepared to sleep in your car if you want a tee time.
