I've played all of these and have absolutely no argument why anyone would keep any of these off the top of the list (including the 9-er Campton Hills)......except Oshtemo.

I could not stand that course (well.....I did rate it as a 2.50/82/B-/average). Very repetitious and maddeningly so in that the vast majority of longer fairways gave you no hope of improving your score by throwing longer. Other than holes 1 & 2 (which I loved), most of the long holes had curves, obstacles or pinch points that did nothing to enhance any risk/reward decision making. Most of the round is reduced to 2 medium length throws and a drop-in putt.

My comments are about the longs.
