You're right about the winter deal at #2 being one of the best deals around. I did it two years ago, and it was called "Number 2 for $222", which included the hotel, breakfast at the very same buffet, and a round on the course.

I'm not sure I agree about #2 being such a fun course. I loved it, but I think I would enjoy it much more if I got another chance to play it. I've been fortunate enough to play Harbour Town, the Ocean Course, Whistling Straits, and Royal St. George's as well, and #2 is near the end of that list in my opinion.

I can appreciate your comments, Spence. Everybody has their own list of favorites. I too have been fortunate enough to play some of the best courses around, including St. Andrews Old Course and a dozen other links. But for pure fun on a great track, I'd take Pinehurst No. 2. It does not beat you up off the tee and the challenge grows as you get nearer the hole. And I absolutely love the myriad of options presented by the shots around the greens.

I do love the creativity that #2 brings into play around the greens. I think what I love about the other courses I mentioned is the shot quality that certain holes demand. While Pinehurst demands a creative short game, the Ocean Course demands accurate and solid tee shots, and Harbour Town demands that a player be able to work the ball to score worth a damn. I think the shot quality from the other courses has left more of an impression on my memory, which is one of the problems. I really do think if I play #2 again I will appreciate it much more. That's what tends to happen with great courses.

Hit em well.
