45. Arrowhead G.C.
Littleton, Colo.
Fairways and greens are tucked between gigantic, tilted red rocks that reach to the heavens. Do they actually play this course or just photograph it?

46. Branson Creek G.C.
Hollister, Mo.
There are elevation changes and some stunning views at this mountainside Tom Fazio design. Plus: wide fairways and receptive greens.

47. Hawktree G.C.
Bismarck, N.D.
Art Deco abounds, with graceful greens and curvaceous bunkers sculpted from hills and recessed into fields. The black bunker sand adds a surreal touch.

48. Elk Ridge G.C.
Atlanta, Mich.
A sampler platter of Northern Michigan golf with pines, ferns, wetlands, moraines, deer, elk and even a pig bunker.

49. The Tribute
The Colony, Texas
Reproductions of some of Great Britain's greatest holes, for the golfer who might never get there.

50. Golden Horseshoe G.C. (Gold)
Williamsburg, Va.
Robert Trent Jones in his kinder, gentler persona. Holes with water hazards don't require heroism. Even the island-green 16th is a generous target.

Course descriptions by John Barton, Peter Finch, Matt Ginella, and Ron Whitten.
