How about Talon Trails in Presque Isle, Maine.

Nothing even listed for nearby courses. Must be farther than the search radius that timg uses.

Hmmm, strange that it doesn't show up on the course page.

Enman Riverside in Caribou (no idea why it's not in the DGCR database) is only about 10 miles from Talon Trails. Talon Trails probably wouldn't exist if not for the player base grown by Riverside's presence.

Where Google plots a particular place's zip code and where that place actually is are two different things. Because of this, DGCR actually marks the second closest course to my home as the closest despite the fact that its five miles further.

And in rural Montana, a zip code can encompass hundreds of square miles, which it appears zip code 59501 is.

If you really want to determine a winner, I'd use the GPS coordinates and find the distance between those.

And it's right off US-50, the "loneliest road in America!"

True. I just assumed the lat/long was screwed up and that was why the map wasn't working.
