The best golf courses in West Virginia
For a state its size, location and relatively small population, West Virginia outpunches its weight. Two courses have been America's 100 Greatest Courses staples for the better part of a decade: Pikewood National, which has risen in the rankings each year since its debut in 2013, and Pete Dye Golf Club, which hasn't been outside the top 100 since 2005.
Each of the courses on this list show off the state's rugged, mountainous topography in exciting ways, from Pete Dye's ravine strewen hillside layout to Pikewood National's voyage around canyons and mines—to the more pastoral river valley setting at Greenbrier's Snead and Old White courses, where the Slammer served as head professional from 1946 to 1974.
