Nevada is state where it can often pay to have a guy on the inside. Throughout 2016, golfers left thousands of reviews on Golf Advisor for many of the top courses to help take a little gamble out of booking a tee time. Nevada's top shelf courses, whether they're in Las Vegas or around Lake Tahoe, have some of the highest green fees in the U.S., so any little assurance that the experience delivers is welcomed.
To compile our state Top 25s, we used a similar method to that of our our national Top 50 ranking. A course's score is based on their overall (50%) rating and subcategory average (50%). Reviews are weighted based on how prolific that reviewer is on Golf Advisor, and a course receives a bump in their rating if their score is better than that reviewer's average score.
