Top 20 courses in New York according to Golf Advisor reviews in 2015

Golf courses in New York are in the spotlight often, whether it's the major championship hosts on Long Island such as Shinnecock Hills and Bethpage Black, or A.W. Tillinghast's Winged Foot in Westchester County, or premiere public plays like Donald Trump's Trump Golf Links Ferry Point Park in New York City.

There are a lot of public courses that are lesser known, however, so we're happy to reveal the Empire State's public plays that golfers like you selected as tops in 2015. Courses listed here stretch from the greater N.Y.C. area to upstate and western New York. Some are even very affordable, and the state's top play made Golf Advisor's top 50 U.S. courses in 2015.

Rankings were calculated based on a combination of a course's overall and subcategory ratings in 2015. You can click on each course to view review details.

No Conklin Players Club?  Just outside Binghamton, great course and always in excellent condition at a reasonable price.

Obviously these lists have absolutely no credibility. Niagara Frontier is a decent track but there is no way it would even be ranked top 100 in NYS. Looks like courses on this list paid money or something to be listed, Batavia CC #18 cmon man
