Many people associate golf with the rich. The sport is common in most countries. Two or more players compete in a golf course. Betway offers a variety of golf bets. But, many sports fans have a murky understanding of golf courses. Most of them have 18 holes that include a fairway, hazards, rough and teeing grounds. In this post, we discuss five top golf courses that have been built since 2010.

1.     Streamsong, Fla

Streamsong is a special golf course that has a Red and Blue course. Renowned design teams built the courses at the same time. The Renaissance Design Team built the Blue. It has huge dips, shelves, and green designs. It is ideal for golfers who play ground games. The course was among the top courses in the Second 100 Greatest list.

2.     Mammoth Dunes, Nekoosa

Mammoth is a beautiful golf course that David McLay built. Some sports enthusiasts have criticized his team for building complex golf courses in the past. David modified his usual design to build a fun course in Nekoosa. He contemplated on the design after returning from Bandon Dunes. The team built playable courses in Huntsman Springs, Idaho and Gamble Sands, Washington.

David’s team built the Sand Valley Resort in Wisconsin. Mammoth Dunes is a bold golf course with wide fairways. It is suitable for amateur and experienced golfers who like dramatic features like a par-4 hole and a Redan green. Gamblers who bet on golf with Betway can tour the Mammoth Dunes course.

3.     Cabot Cliffs, Nova Scotia

Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore designed the Cabot Cliffs. It has southern holes drilled in sand dunes. The Cabot Cliffs’ top section resembles Pebble Beach cliffs. It has a few Scottish highlands. Cabot Cliffs have six par 5s, three of which are in four holes. Also, it has six par 3s and a one-shot hole. The Cabot Cliffs’ par-3 16th attracts many players and sports fans.

4.     Congaree, Ridgeland

Congaree won the Golf Digest new private ward in 2018. It hasn’t been added to the 100 Greatest list since it has insufficient ballots. But, Congaree has high scores. The Golf Digest panelists ranked it as one of the top golf courses designed this decade. It will soon appear on the national list. Tom Fazio created a unique design based on the natural features of oak trees, hills, lakes, and ridges. It appears like an old golf course. Tom might have spent $45 million building Congaree.

5.     Sand Valley, Nekoosa

Mike Keiser saw a vast pine plantation, over 100 miles from Madison, Wis in 2013. He hired Craig Haltom to design the Sand Valley course. Keiser opened it in 2017 at the Wisconsin resort. Crenshaw and Coore collaborated to build the amazing Sand Valley course. It is located between the Sand Hills and Pine Valley. The two teams designed Sand Hills. It has several greens, fairways, a putting surface, and huge sandpits. It was the top new course in Gold Digest in 2017.

Golf has witnessed many transformations since 2010. There has been a sharp decline in the number of golf courses built in the recent past. They include Streamsong, Mammoth Dunes, Cabot Cliffs and Congaree. Designers focus on building durable and sustainable golf courses. Golf fans can wager on any game in Betway.
