Golf doesn't have to be an ordeal. You work hard enough off the course! At these venues, 'play' and 'golf' are not mutually exclusive. We chose them with the help of Golf Digest's panelists, who create our biennial rankings of America's 100 Greatest, 100 Greatest Public and the Best in State.
Golf Digest has been evaluating America's golf courses since 1966, making it the oldest ranking in the game. The 2013/2014 ranking is ready for its close up, where we welcome eight new courses to the biennial list, including a new No. 1 course edging out Augusta National.
Where are the best golf resorts in the country? After surveying a group of more than 1,000 avid golfers throughout the U.S. and Canada, we rank the top 75, crowning a brand new number one and welcoming 30 newcomers to our biennial list.
