Are there any outside of the US or is the US the world?
Played many golf courses on this list and only TPC Sawgrass is worthy of top 50 recognition. Atlantic City Country Club, La Cantera Palmer and Las Vegas Paiute are great tracks but should at best be top 100 for entire USA. Seaview, Heron Glen and Ballamour shouldn't even crack top 500. So many amazing courses completely ignored. Torrey Pines? Bandon Dunes? Chambers Bay? Whistling Straights? Oakmont? There were many overlooked venues.
Not one single course from the Bandon Dunes Resort made the list? That's insane...
Bandon courses didn’t qualify. They only have 2 reviews in the past 12 months. That’s not GA’s fault.
Wow. This list is trash.
These courses are mostly garbage. All this list proves is that the "Golf Advisor Community" doesn't play very good course.
On what basis? I played 12 of the courses listed in 2018 and all of them deserve to be here. It’s not a perfect system but remember this is based on actual golfers reviews, not some guy who got a free round to create a top 50 list. If you don’t like it, then write more reviews on the courses you think are more deserving.
Beats the Top-50 list of country club courses no one ever has a chance of playing.
Not sure how Arcadia Bluffs and its new sister course, Arcadia South up on Michigan's west coast.missed the list. Highly recommend travelling to play both.
Played it for the first time last year, would not go back. Layout is ok. Views are the biggest selling perk. Greens were trash though. If you were to place a ball dead center on the green, you'd only have a handfull of putts that would be makeable, all the rest you'd have to purposefully putt away from the hole just to give yourself a CHANCE at a two-putt. I'd put Pilgram's Run over Arcadia.
Played half of these. Caledonia was by far the best.. Seaview near Atlantic City was the worse.. Atlantic City country Club is a much better place and just a few miles away
