From the craggy coastline of California to the legendary links of Scotland,
these are the clubs, resorts, courses, holes and people that shape the game.

Most golf courses are like wine, requiring time and the subtle ministrations of nature to comfortably settle into their surroundings and to soften their rough edges. Still, certain wines are ready to be enjoyed at a younger age. So too the finest of the new courses, like Beaujolais Nouveau, have character that is immediately and undeniably unique.
