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 from golfers just like you
  • 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.

To make this list a bit more interesting, we've provided an interactive map that allows you to sort and filter by course name, state, and rank. Feel free to click and zoom to your hear's content. For any display, the largest dot will always show the highest ranked course on the map. Smaller dots, lower ranking. You get it.
