Best of 2016: Top 25 golf courses in Pennsylvania

Golf courses throughout Pennsylvania, from the Philadelphia area to Pittsburgh, earned strong ratings from Golf Advisor golfers in 2016. The land of Arnold Palmer, Latrobe, even scored a course, as well as in the Poconos and plenty in the areas around the City of Brotherly Love. The state's top-rated course for the year cracked the national Top 20, and others placed in our national subcategory lists.

To compile our state lists, 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.
