Golf courses aren’t just places to play your favorite sport. They’re living museums of the game, a chance to match the shots of the players who have made history for more than a century.
In what other sport can you hit the same shots that the greats of both today and generations past have pulled off? At the 18 courses on this list, you can try to match David Duval’s birdie streak in the final round of the 2009 U.S. Open, hole Tom Watson’s birdie chip to win the 1982 U.S. Open, or match Paul Runyan’s short-game genius when he outplayed Sam Snead in the final of the 1938 PGA Championship.
