Power Rankings: Top 10 golf courses and most active reviewers for the 2nd quarter of 2017

With the 2nd quarter of 2017 in the books, let's take a look back on the past three months of golf course reviews in North America to see which courses fared best from golfers like you.

The results, based on a combination of a course's overall and subcategory averages as well as the amount of reviews, span from Mexico to Canada, with west, southeast and Midwestern courses in between.

The top course for the quarter is one of the best stops at a legendary value destination, the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Alabama. The trail is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2017.

The remaining courses feature a mix of household names when it comes to destination courses, but there are a few hidden gems in here too, including unsung courses in Texas and Michigan. You can see what golfers are saying about each course by clicking on their course guide page.

We've also dug up the ten most active reviewers on Golf Advisor in 2017.
