The big winner? Delaware Springs Golf Course in the Texas Hill Country. Located about an hour northwest of Austin, this affordable muni scored perfect marks overall, in conditions and in value.

Also architects of Top 100-ranked Wild Horse Golf Course in Nebraska, this may be the top duo in golf architecture you've never heard of.
