The Best of the Golden State
California has the 3rd highest number of golf courses of any state in the US (trailing only Florida and Michigan). It's home to several PGA Tour Events, and some of the most iconic venues in the game.
The state is packed with courses that even the most casual golfer dreams of playing. Course for course, California's golf scenery is unmatched, but do the big name, made-for-TV courses live up to their reputations? What about the hidden gems that don't have the fame, but offer every bit of the experience? Shouldn't those courses be celebrated?
Where can you find the best golf that California has to offer? To find out, we turned to real golfers just like you.
About Our Rankings
To generate our rankings, we used data from TheGrint, a golf handicap and stat tracking service that also allows golfers to rate the courses they play. Here are the pertinent details:
- Ranking derived from over 200,000 golf course reviews
- Only reviews from the last 365 days are considered
- A course must have a minimum of 30 reviews is required in order to qualify for ranking
Nearly every aspect of a golf course review is subjective and there's always going to be a difference of opinion, so healthy (and hopefully polite) debate is to be expected.
