Even the U.S. Golf Association decided to soak in the state’s golf scene with a national championship. The game’s governing body has announced it will hold the 2022 U.S.

How we rate them

The members of our course-ratings panel continually evaluate courses and rate them based on our 10 criteria. They also file a single, overall rating on each course. Those overall ratings on each course are averaged together to produce a final rating for each course. Then each course is ranked against other courses in its state, or nationally, to produce the final rankings.
