I'm not sure these qualify for "best" extinct courses. Except maybe in a Land Of The Misfit Toys kind of way - har har.

Yeah, this thread has turned into more of an "Extinct courses I've played" thread than "Best extinct courses". Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Ooops! Sorry about that, I got sidetracked and listed ALL the extinct courses I played.

Best ones were Emerald Isle and Riverside.

Wildflower Park in Albuquerque, NM. I never got to play it but I know the park that it sits in. It is right next to Balloon Fiesta Park. It was our only championship caliber course in ABQ. Was pulled because of the a-holes in the neighborhood association wanted the park to themselves. Bummer..

And I ran the GSSS Events there from 2008-2010 until a local screwed up and got the rights to use the course without 1000's of dollars in fees and restrictions added - which basically made it impossible for Doug or myself to be able to run Events there ever again under the current county and park rules, thereby making the course Extinct.

By the way as nice as Flyboy is, the CRUCIBLE ranked right up there with it course wise and challenge wise (Water scenery is nicer at FlyBoy) without homes around the course and using only all natural or park boundaries as OB's.
It was a par 68 masterpiece of design by Doug Porter - and it is truly a shame that it no longer exists.

Alot of design styles used there and at FlyBoy are also in play at North Georgia Canopy Tours to maximize the use of the lands features as those 2 courses did.

I miss The Red Hawk. It was far from the best technical challenge, but the beauty, optional golf carts, and a few really good holes made it a special experience.

Agreed. Played in many times.

My #1 would be the original 36 at River Bends......Course was used for 1992 Worlds and was changed just afterwards. Only a few of the West Course holes remain.

#2 Woodstock Rocks in NY

#3 Kensington Original

Haven't gotten a chance to play the current Stony Creek course but I did love the 9-hole course that was there even before this

Crucible

Crucible in Athens was Doug Porter's brainchild and it was a BEAST.

Loved that course!!
