Palm Beach National leads Power Rankings for the week of Oct. 6

With fall in full swing through the north and Midwest, southern U.S. golf courses are beginning to take back dominance of the weekly Power Rankings. South Florida's Palm Beach National is the newest winner in our weekly ratings based on golfer reviews for the previous week.

If you ask GolfAdvisor reviewer Davelip , the course is certainly going above and beyond in the service department:

"They offered me a FREE COOKIE," he wrote. "Then when my round was done, they cleaned my shoes!!"

The 10- to 14-handicapper also said the pace and conditions at the course were great as well.

Here are the rest of the top-rated courses of the week as reviewed by GolfAdvisor users in overall, value and conditions categories.

(Editor's Note: Courses needed a minimum of five ratings for the week to qualify, ties are broken by cumulative scores in sub-categories.)
