    Then there's Washington Park Golf Course in Racine where nututhugame plays a lot. Bridge over the river has drug dealers underneath. Bench by the bridge has teen couples screwing. Next tee has group of nasty looking punks throwing the tee blocks and screwing up the tee area. Flagsticks commonly missing (stolen) when you play. A huge tree on the ninth hole (par 3) in the middle of the fairway between the tee and the green.

    Worst course played in the past few years... Old Dane, just outside Sioux City, IA. 9-hole course plowed out of what should be turned back into a soybean field. You are either in the fairway or you're in 5 FT tall cat tails and hedge. There is no inbetween. The fairways have just the right mixture of dirt vs. grass that balls will bounce from the fairway into the tall gunch. If you wear Kevlar, you can find a ton of balls in the gunch. No one in their right mind goes looking for balls. If you do, there's a good chance you'll find rattlesnakes, skunks, and a golfer or two who didn't make it back out.
    On two holes, the greenskeeper staff sat on 4-wheelers waiting for folks to hit balls into the trash. Then, they'd bail in and collect the balls for their own use. Each 4-wheeler had full buckets of collected balls in the carry baskets behind the seats.

    The sandwiches in the pro shop were awesome!!!

    Cypress Bay in Little River, SC (just north of Myrtle). Place was a dog track, and on every other hole there was a photographer taking pics of your drive and trying to sell them to you. About the 4th guy got told if he took my picture I'd tee up his camera.

    There's a short par 4 that plays perpendicular to Hwy 17 that the fairway was so hard it was like they laid astro turf on concrete.

    Hated that course.

    The word has been used quite often for the rough at the British Open. That's the ONLY time I've ever used it... or heard it used... is when referring to ridiculously thick rough.
    When you questioned it, I Googled the word. Sheesh! The Urban Dictionary has some explicit definitions that are attached to the word "gunch". Those definitions, if used in today's culture, will put an end to me using that term again.... EVER!!!! Honestly! I had no idea.:oops:

    Worst for me was Falcon Golf Course at Otis Air Base On Cape cod. It sure was cheap but the fairway were more sand/dirt than grass and the greens weren't green but more like the fairways, try putting on sand!

    You don't know what you're missing. Slice it and put it in and on top of homemade mac and cheese. Or fry it in a skillet and put it in a bun with mayo. It's really popular in Hawaii. They even have restaurants that serve it.

    My worst was in Charlottesville Va, McIntyre municipal park, a nine hole course. There is no clubhouse, just a cement block building with a slot to place your $5 in an envelope pulled from something like a mailbox, which also contains a scorecard. There's no diagrams for the layout and no markers at the tee boxes. So we teed up and took our shot at a seemingly nonexistant fairway that has been mowed by a regular lawn tractor. Distances? Just take a guess. The "greens" were sand, some soft and some hard dried crust. No.8 tee was down hill from No.7 green, so steep that it was hard to keep from sliding, even with spikes. My son and I laughed so hard over the crudeness that we didn't mind, as we watched a group of big, overweight guys totally skip No.8, saying "We ain't goin' down THERE!" Great laughs for $5!

    The course that I learned on should probably be in this thread. I can't say anything bad about it because it has sentimental value to me though.
