Thanks for the article Brandon. I agree that it is a little far fetched that AZ, NM and NV only have a couple of Top 100 courses in the list. I have played both WeKoPa (AZ)courses many times and let me tell you it compares with almost any of the Top 100 except the obvious few (Augusta, Pine Valley , etc). Also, Paa-Ko Ridge and Black Mesa (both in NM) are no slouches either...then add Wolf Creek (Mesquite, NV) and The Wolf an unbelieveable track that measures over 7500 yrds in the Vegas desert. Hmmm, maybe no freebies were offered to the writers...:)

Are you kidding me that you write about golf courses and you've never heard of Desert Forest? It opened in 1962, has hosted 2 USGA amateur championships, and Golf Digest, GOLF, and Golfweek have ranked in their Top 100 US courses consistently.

This is a joke, that someone who writes about golf doesn't know about golf or the quality of it in the Southwest. Apparently this person has no understanding of geography, either. Arizona: 11 million people, 410-plus golf courses; New Mexico: 1.8 million people, 80 golf courses. New York: 970-plus golf courses, 19.5 million people. Why no major championships in the Southwest? For Arizona or Palm Springs, how about the 110-plus degree heat in summer? For New Mexico, how about lack of population, sponsorship money and difficulty of connections for black-limo corporate fat cats? It's not by coincidence the USGA keeps going back to New York, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia for its top events. Just wait for the whining to start as the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers Bay near nowhere-ville Tacoma, Wash.
