Top 20 courses in North Carolina according to Golf Advisor reviews in 2015

North Carolina, thanks to the Village of Pinehurst, makes for one of the country's most historic golf destinations. But the entire state is stacked with golf courses of all sorts and green fees.

Golf Advisor reviewers throughout 2015 rated courses around Pinehurst, plus metro areas Charlotte, Raleigh, the Carolina Triangle and more. Famed Pinehurst No. 2 made the list, of course, as well as some of its modern neighbors. But there are some lesser known courses that also fared very well. The state is even home to the friendliest-rated course in the U.S., Deercroft Golf & Country Club in Wagram, N.C.

Most of North Carolina is covered, so you're always around the corner from a course that your peers have rated strongly. You can click on each course page to view ratings details as well as what golfers are saying about the experience.
