This year's World Series brings together a pair of long-suffering cities. The Giants have not won the Series since moving from New York to San Francisco in 1957, while the Texas Rangers have never brought baseball's grand prize to the Dallas-Forth Worth area.
But when it comes to golf, both cities have been winners. The Bay Area boasts some of the best courses in the country, while the open spaces of the Dallas Metroplex have allowed the construction of numerous quality layouts.
In celebration of the World Series, we have put together a lineup of nine of the best courses from each area in this exclusive slideshow. Play ball!
