2. Gleneagles (PGA Centenary), Auchterarder, Scotland
If you think the critics' teeth were gnashing over Ireland's K Club and Wales' Celtic Manor, wait until they see the site of the 2014 Ryder Cup. This inland 1993 Jack Nicklaus design at one of the world's best resorts looks as Scottish as a McDonald'swith a similar level of sophistication. I played it for the second time in 2009 and can remember only one strong hole, the par-4 5th. A handful of David McLay Kidd's tweaks improved the course, but now Nicklaus himself is undoing some and adding a few others, so the jury's still out for some. Despite the numerous changes, my vote hasn't changed: "Guilty."
