Tom Doak (2006)

If the number 9 Sand Hills Golf Club means that there is nothing more glorious than a round of golf beyond the reach of the cell phone reception, then Ballyneal (the Tom Doak's answer to northeastern Colorado at the Sand Hills of Nebraska) proves that isolated golf is even better when Spartan in the wild. Without carts and with dry grass, beige fescue on the fairways and greens, Ballyneal is even more austere than Sand Hills. It provides absolutely firm and fast conditions, and with many greens perched at the top of the hills, one must take into account the effect of the wind on the putts. In addition to the number 15 Friar's Head, Ballyneal is the only course to have consistently progressed in our rankings over the last 10 years.

"Great club, great atmosphere and great course. Such spectacular terrain with choppy dunes, even steeper than those in the Nebraska Sand Hills. Driving on the ground is so flat, and when you climb the course and you see the landscape changing, it's amazing. "

"Doak's holes flow marvelously in, along and along these tall, steep, high sand dunes that separate one hole from the next. You rarely see another hole than the one you play. "

"It's very similar to a links course, which requires the golfer to play the ball on the ground. Doak always gives you the right side to hit, which takes you away from most trouble, but it's the longest route to the hole. The greens are huge in size with a dozen pin positions each. "

"That's what future new courses should be. The variety of shots that can be played here is huge, making the postman fun off the charts. This place, although new, exudes tradition. "

"A jewel of Tom Doak in the middle of northeastern Colorado, where you never expect a golf course of this magnitude. This naturally corresponds to the terrain, one might think that it's been 100 years. The variety of holes, the alternative ways of playing each hole and each shot are a fun challenge for all levels.
