The Best Golf Courses in the US by Region
Basically, the ranking of golf courses is a subjective exercise. Better players often prefer more challenging layouts. Less experienced golfers will appreciate wider fairways with less forced carry.
However, the validity of an individual rating does not depend on whether the golfer has a degree in golf course architecture or a preference for certain types of grass.
When you are a golfer, your opinion matters.
To make our list of the best golf destinations, we looked at. agile TheGrint and for real golfers like you.
ABOUT THEGRINT'S RANKINGS
To generate our rankings, we used data from TheGrint, a golf handicap and statistics tracking service This also allows golfers to rate the courses they have played. Think of it as something similar to Yelp for golf courses.
Here are the relevant details:
- Ranking from more than 300,000 golf course reviews from golfers like you.
- Only ratings from the previous year (2020) are used.
- Only courses with at least 50 reviews are considered.
- Golfers viewed course conditions and overall experience as ranking criteria.
Based on reader feedback, we took the data for all courses in the US and broken them down by region. In the next few weeks we will work our way from the Pacific Coast Highway to the east coast.
