• Made over by Dye in 2005, this
loop along two-and-a-half miles of
the New River is one of the
country’s most underrated
courses. A 70-foot rock cliff
divides the nines.

• The hour’s ride south to Tacoma
is worth it. This Robert Trent Jones
Jr. design opened in late June and
it’s drawing comparisons to
Bandon Dunes. With the Puget
Sound and Olympic Mountains
backdropping many holes,
Chambers Bay might make you
forget all about football.

House,” Ann Arbor, Mich.

• Arthur Hills crafted this 27-holer in 2000, 30 miles north of
Detroit and less than an hour
from the University of Michigan
campus. Hardwoods and pines
frame nearly every hole, yet
there’s ample room to maneuver
around the strategic bunkering
and handful of lakes.
