Dec 1, 2011, 8:42 a.m.

If touring the country and playing the most gorgeous golf courses is on your bucket list, then this list should help. While every golf course is going to claim to be the most challenging, the most beautiful, the most scenic or even the most prestigious; there are few that can match the scenic beauty of these three glorious golf courses.

Pebble Beach Golf Links

The Pebble Beach Golf Links course is arguably one of the world's most beautiful golf courses, but it is located much closer to home in Pebble Beach, California. It also has the dubious honor of being one of the country's most expensive to play. If you can afford to golf around the country, then you certainly can't miss Pebble Beach. This golf course combines all the rustic beauty of Mother Nature with the groomed elegance of a golf course. Where else can you swing your club just feet from the pounding surf of the Pacific Ocean? Craggy and majestic bluffs topped with immaculately groomed greens overlook tranquil and protected bays while the blue of the sky meets the deep, tranquil blue of the ocean.

Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course

For more than 40 years, the Edgewood course on the shores of Lake Tahoe has been considered one of the world's most beautiful golf courses. Surrounded by snow-kissed mountains and vistas of Lake Tahoe's gently undulating water, this course is the epitome of natural beauty. It also happens to be a really great course for playing a round or two.

Westin Kierland Scottsdale Golf Club

This golf club offers several different courses that compete for the title of the most beautiful. Elevation changes, desert trees, water hazards and dry desert washes are all set against the distant mountains, as well as the deep blue of the Arizona sky. You may be golfing in the desert, but these courses are anything but brown and monotonous.

The United States is dotted with beautiful golf courses that blend Mother Nature's most beautiful side with the sculpted grace of a challenging golf course. While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, few could argue that these three golf courses are any less than three of the most beautiful in the country.
