The top 10 features courses in many parts of the U.S., and it's good to see some Midwest courses are already receiving strong reviews before their peak season ramps up in June.
King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort on the Georgia coast earned the highest honors, and one of its reviews in May comes from one of Golf Advisor's top-10 reviewers, mcglynnjf. He awarded the experience five stars. (Of his 164 reviews on Golf Advisor, 38 have received five stars.)

Review of the week
After playing almost 300 courses in my life and playing the ocean course 24 years ago and again today it is the best course I have ever played. The layout, the condition and the staff are all phenomenal. It is an amazing experience to play this course but make sure you play it from the tees that suite your game. The practice area is awesome the views are amazing and even the Ryder Cup Bar is the best 19th hole I have ever been to. If you're a true fan of the game and want to play the best of the best add The Ocean Course to your bucket list
