The top courses in the industry's top three cities.
Where: Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, Southampton, N.Y.
Why: One of the most exclusive clubs on the East Coast -- if not the nation -- "Shinny" draws flocks of celebrities to play on this old-money course.
Signature Hole: The "Redan" -- the famous par 3 seventh hole challenges even U.S. Open professionals.
Watering Hole: The porches of Shinnecock's sprawling clubhouse are the perfect setting to get the club's most popular drink: a Southside.
