2. Pine Valley (No. 1 on Top 100 Courses in the World): "There is some appeal in the exclusivity here as I feel a certain privilege when I walk the fairways at Pine Valley. I wonder if I had never heard so many of the vaunted preambles if I would feel the same way about this Crump classic. I'd like to think I would. Reading its history, however, one realizes that the great thing about George Crump was that he invited criticism and welcomed new ideas, as the best architects of his day all offered opinions here. All great holes. All memorable. The architect of the Flatiron building in New York City, Daniel Burnham, once said, "Make no little plans, they have no magic to stir men's blood" George Crump had big plans for this course and they definitely continue to stir men's blood."
