Golf Digest's Best 19th Holes
Continued (page 4 of 4)
WHISPER ROCK G.C.
Former Castle Pines locker-room attendant Mike Marranzino, now at Whisper Rock, brought the recipe for Castle's famous milkshakes as well as its legendary service; Phil Mickelson is a member; club motto is on a Masters flag on display in the grillroom: "Boys of Whisper Rock, it's all about the hang!"
WINGED FOOT G.C.
Knowing Tommy Armour and Claude Harmon used to drink in the men's grill is "a big part of the bar's appeal"; Butch Harmon's take: "There's so much history. The names on the walls, the dark mahogany look -- it's just a great, great bar"; the bartenders "are not stingy with their pours."
The bar buffers the course from the hotel/casino, so you might hear a guy explaining how he lost $5,000 in craps. It'll make the $10 you lost on the course seem irrelevant.
