Some courses in Best in State lists have a higher ranking than some on America's 100 Greatest or 100 Greatest Public, but they do not appear on those national lists because they did not have enough evaluations. America's 100 Greatest requires a minimum of 45 ballots, 100 Greatest Public 25 ballots and Best in State 10 ballots.
