Jessica Marksbury, senior editor: I’m tremendous excited to have a second crack at TPC Scottsdale, which, because it seems, is going on subsequent week! On January eleventh, the course is internet hosting WM Phoenix Open Media Day. The final time I performed was in 2018. After I acquired to the tee on No. 16, the grandstands had been up, the strain was on, and … I missed the inexperienced left. Doh! This 12 months, the hype for the WM couldn’t be larger. The Tremendous Bowl will likely be on the town and the newly-elevated WM will doubtless boast its strongest area ever. I couldn’t be extra excited for my upcoming preview.
Jack Hirsh, assistant editor: In 2021, I used to be fortunate sufficient to play within the Oregon State Newbie at Bandon Dunes. If I used to be going to select one spot to play a state championship throughout my quick time within the Beaver state, that was the place. There are 5 programs presently on the resort (all are in our Prime 100 record) and two par-3 programs and the match was hosted at Bandon Trails. Sadly, given the match, the one different course in addition to Trails I acquired to play was the 13-hole par-3 course, Bandon Protect (which is likely one of the greatest quick programs on the planet). Alas, I don’t presently have any plans to get again to the South Oregon coast, however getting again to play the opposite 4 tracks will likely be aim of mine yearly till it occurs.
Sean Zak, senior editor: Zablocki Park Golf Course in Milwaukee. We’re on the mend after shoulder surgical procedure and gained’t be hitting any full swing photographs for awhile. If I’m hitting 100% wedges on this little pitch and putt in April, I’ll be thrilled.
Connor Federico, video producer and editor: The Lido! This summer season, GOLF.com was the primary to point out the golf world how shut Dream Golf is to ending this revolutionary challenge. Because of unprecedented tech and deep archives, the misplaced Golden Age marvel will make its twenty first century debut in Wisconsin this spring. As a visitor at Sand Valley Resort in the summertime of 2023, golfers can have an opportunity to stroll this historic masterpiece. If I had been you, I’d just remember to’re one in all them. I’m actually hoping to be.
Josh Berhow, managing editor: I’m with Connor. I can’t wait to take a look at the Lido, and for that matter Sand Valley (which I nonetheless haven’t visited). I’m only a few-hours drive away and listen to from everybody it’s well worth the hype. I’ll formally add it to the to-do record for 2023. (And it is best to too. I’ll see you there!)
James Colgan, assistant editor: As an indecisive king, I’ll go forward and volunteer two. First, I’ll choose Lahinch in Eire, which simply owns the title of probably the most charming public entry course I’ve seen however not performed. And second, I’ll volunteer a routing considerably nearer to residence: Inness, the brand new nine-holer in Upstate New York that’s already being hyped because the northeast successor to Sweetens Cove.
Jonathan Wall, gear editor: I truly checked off bucket record course numero uno this 12 months (Cypress Level), so I’m taking part in with home cash in ‘23. I’ve been listening to plenty of nice issues about Driftwood Golf and Ranch Membership exterior of Austin, Texas, and hope to make a visit down there in some unspecified time in the future to see if it lives as much as the hype. The Texas Hill Nation is a magical place.
All these dream rounds on the Previous Course at St. Andrews? This man begins them
Ryan Barath, senior editor: Since that is all in regards to the bucket record, the one place I wish to play golf greater than ever is over in Scotland on the Previous Course. I’ve by no means had the possibility to journey abroad to play and after seeing 4 days of golf in St Andrews this 12 months for The Open, I’d be completely happy to attend in line for days to get the possibility to stroll these historic fairways. If we’re seeking to keep just a little nearer to residence, I need my subsequent journey to be at Landmand Golf Membership to take a look at the latest design from King Collins Golf.
Nick Piastowski, senior editor: I’m going to cheat right here and go along with three, although there’s a cause — Landmand Golf Membership, in Homer, Neb.; Misplaced Rail Golf Membership, in Gretna, Neb.; and CapRock Ranch, in Valentine, Neb. Sure, all three are in Nebraska, the place I lived after faculty. And all three have opened only recently. And all three look incredible. I’m considering a tour of all ’em, with Runza lunches within the automobile.

Tim Reilly, commerce/social media director: I used to be full of envy after seeing the pictures and movies our James Colgan got here again with from his trek to Chambers Bay this 12 months. The course has gone from a punching bag to on my bucket record in a number of quick years. It’s an excellent 3,000 miles from my Lengthy Island residence, however my spouse lately talked about Seattle as a visit she’d like to absorb 2023. If that involves fruition, a pit cease at Chambers will likely be made.
Alan Bastable, government editor: I maintain listening to nice issues a few newcomer to the Irish golf scene: St. Patrick’s Hyperlinks, a Tom Doak design in County Donegal. The course nonetheless wants “to age,” I’m advised, however the land is heaving and windswept and gorgeous. If my prose doesn’t excite you, these pictures will.
