"Public Golf Courses" includes some fairly humble municipal golf courses. But it also includes some amazing resort properties, from Kapalua to Ambiente, at JW Marriott's Camelback Resort, to The Max, in Laredo, Texas and Soldier Hollow, one of my favorite places on the planet.

If you insist on playing great golf courses, and you're a public golfer, there are some wonderful public options in the world!
