9. Saddle Creek Golf ClubCopperopolis, Calif.
Twenty miles east of Stockton, Saddle Creek is one of the game's best little-known hideaways. Its remoteness is a turn-off for some, but the quaint bungalow accommodations and quality golf make for a nice escape. The design is all you can handle, and the bold, imaginative bunker style of Carter Morrish will tie a wayward golfer in knots.
