A search engine to help find golf courses is a great concept. I understand the problem finding a course, especially if Tiger Woods ever played there. His popularity pushes him to the top of organics and can leave the local course out of bounds.
Cybergolfsearch.com is a good vertical search engine covering the golf industry. I see a time when many such engines exist, along side a portal or community dedicated to the particular niche.
