Golfworld magazine has issued its 2010 "Reader's Choice Ranking" in the Sept. 28th edition. Among them is the "Top 50 Public Courses." Coming in at a surprising 18th is Baywood Greens in Long Neck, Del., which has been called the "Augusta of the Northeast." I say suprisingly because Baywood Greens topped other public courses on the list such as Bulle Rock and Bethpage Black which have hosted majors as the U.S. Men's Open and the LPGA Championship. Located just a couple miles west of Rehoboth Beach, Del., I have had the opportunity to play Baywood Greens twice. While an expensive course to play, it is well worth the experience as the course is beautifully landscaped everywhere you look. The fairways are green and lush and the greens are fast and true. Other nearby courses that made the top 50 included Blue Herron Pines (34) and Scotland Run (44), both located in South Jersey.
