Often the top rated golf course in the United States, Pine Valley Golf Club is widely considered by many to be the best golf course in the world. Successful Philadelphia businessman George Crump set out to build a golf course and ended up creating a timeless monument to the game. Not only is Pine Valley considered to be one of the best courses in the world, it is also considered to be one of the most difficult. The terrain at Pine Valley challenges players to test their games with a variety of shots over fairways surrounded by wild and unkempt hazards. It’s worth noting that the bunkers at Pine Valley do not contain rakes which certainly adds to the difficultly when one must play a sand shot out of another player’s heel print. Best advice here are to avoid the bunkers all together . . . especially the ones they call Hell’s Half Acre and The Devil’s Asshole.
