Colorado's Pole Creek Golf Club powers its way to the top of the Power Rankings for week of Sept. 14

As you might expect with fall almost here, in sheer numbers, warm weather states dominate the latest Golf Advisor Power Rankings. There are three Florida golf courses in the top 10, plus entries from Texas, South Carolina, Arizona and southern California.

However, 27-hole Pole Creek Golf Club -- located up in the Colorado Rockies, west of Boulder -- is clinging to summer, and gamely earned the no. 1 slot.

Following his Sept. 17 round, Colorado golfer dalekinzler , no stranger to Pole Creek , wrote : "One of the best mountain courses. Moderately challenging from white tees, very challenging from the tips. Great courses, beautiful scenery, wonderful layout, sooo much fun."

BenBlakeslee of Littleton, Colo. wrote : "The course is in excellent condition. Every staff member I spoke with was kind, courteous, and interesting to talk to. A '10' experience for us."

Following Pole Creek is 36-hole Squaw Valley Golf Course , which sits 60 miles southwest of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Both 18-hole layouts here are ranked by the Dallas Morning News in Texas' top five munis.

ClarenceWalker of Jackson, Mo. wrote : "This is one of my favorite courses in all of the 5 states I play in fairly regularly. Beautiful and interesting."
