Default Twin Cities

For the Twin Cities area, I would bring a newbie to a 3 star course, with a variety of holes and good amenities, and then bring them to a 4-5 star course. I wouldn't want to bring them to Blue Ribbon Pines, and have them look at hole # 4. They may not want to play ever again.

3 Star (IMHO)
Riverside - St. Cloud
Acorn - Roseville
Central Park - Brooklyn Park

4-5 Star (IMHO)
Hidden Lake - St. Augusta (St. Cloud area)
Blue Ribbon Pines (East Bethel)
Mont Du Lac (Superior, WI)
Kaposia (St. Paul)

No disrespect to the south metro, but I haven't played too many courses down there, IE Bryant Lake, Hyland, etc.

Conifer Park/Beaver Ranch just West of Denver. It's secluded and nothing but great views.

In the upstate of SC for beauty you can't beat Chattooga Belle Farm for the views. The cover picture on the Innova Calendar is from CBF. For ease of play and a nice, pretty course, I would choose Timmons Park in Greenville and Sertoma Field in Walhalla. Both have had pictures featured in the Innova Calendar in the past.

Most beautiful/scenic would have to be Stafford Lake Course Page Link or Coyote Point/Lake Casitas Course Page Link.

However, I would not take a first time player to either course because of difficulty unless they were interested in being my caddy for the round. For beginners, I would take them to one of Chicagoland's finest 9 hole courses...Course Page Link. Plenty of scenery and a view of the Des Plaines river, but no mountains to climb here.

Lots of great responses guys. I'm not surprised to see all of the California courses. I've skiied at Squaw Valley and can only imagine what the DG course must look like.
