favorite: endicott; great blend of everything (honorable mention for white birch since its the closest)

best: sioux or endicott. rockspring or unger would/will be in there once facilities are upgraded

worst: SIUE. far and away the worst excuse for a golf course in the area. those who are saying white birch or watson must not have been to SIUE yet. the place is abysmal.
Are YOU the d-bag who swiped all four of the putters I left at White Birch?

Favorite - Hudson Mills Metropark, MI - 48 holes, 96 concrete tee pads, fairways manicured weekly, bad ass!
Best - I'll second forehand - Toboggan Course - 15 minutes from Hudson Mills too!
Worst - if its 18 holes, safe. 9-holers get the boot, ALL OF THEM!

Locally...

Favorite - JB - it breeds well rounded golfers, always has. Action every afternoon.
Best - Sioux Passage - the real PRO's tell me so
Worst - which one is a 9-holer? I haven't been there in years...
Hoppy 2013!

Really?... I just played the Evansville Open a couple of weeks ago at Mesker and USI.
I would say USI is worse than Mesker.
The park is nice, the holes are varied and challenging. The only knock I can think
of is the OB using the "roads." Very similar to JB actually.

I am curious as to why you didn't like it?

Favorite: CREVE COUER, then Sioux Passage

Best: Sioux Passage, then Quail Ridge

Worst: UNGER, way worse than Bluebird, even! STUPID DESIGN...

All time Favorite: Water Works, Kansas City, Missouri: elevated tee pads, so awesome!!

All Time BEST: Santa Cruz, California's De LaVeaga: 27 holes, scenic ocean panorama, and TOP OF THE WORLD hole, by far the course I wish I could play every SINGLE DAY!

All Time Worst: UNGER, way worse than Indian Hills, Columbia, or Springfield, Massachusetts, or SIU-Edwardsville, Illinois, or Bluebird, even! Stupid Design!!!!
Life is short, make the most of every opportunity you get to do the right thing, even when it would be easier to just say "Screw it, I don't care." Make a difference, one opportunity at a time. Smile!

So far here are the results. Anyone who said more than one for a best, favorite or worst got 1/2 point instead of a full 1 point.

Favorite
JB - 4.5
Endicott - 3.5
Sioux - 3
Quail - 1.5
Rock Spring & Creve Coeur - 1

Best
Sioux - 9
Endicott - 3
Ozark - 1

Worst
SIUE & Any 9 Hole - 3
Bluebird & Watson Trail - 2
White Birch, JB, Under - 1

Looks like a lot of people don't like the 9 holers, think that Sioux is the Best, but would rather play JB because it's their favorite.

Favorite: Centralia, worth the drive
Best: Endicott, Sioux is a close 2nd
Worst: Creve Coeur (I'll reconsider if they start mowing it regularly or make the ball golf course next door a combo ball golf/disc golf course)
