Golfweek's Best Courses You Can Play 2020: North Dakota

  Golfweek's Best Courses You Can Play 2020: North Dakota Golfweek’s Jay Blasi, who is a golf architect, wrote in August about the commonalities among the best courses in the world, as judged by the Golfweek’s Best national panel of course raters. Along with many top courses being built alongside large bodies of water and creating a sense of place, one strong commonality is wide-open views of the surrounding scenery. Thirteen of the top 15 Classic courses built before 1960 in the U.S. feature such long views. “Open sites may have trees but don’t isolate the holes, meaning there are long views across the property,” Blasi wrote.

Rhode Island might be best known for watersports and colonial towns, but the Ocean State has a surprisingly large golf presence, too – especially when it comes to its private clubs.

The smallest state in the nation has about 60 courses, many with historical significance, scattered across just a little more than a thousand square miles of land.

Newport Country Club is the epitome of such golf history. One of five clubs that formed the U.S. Golf Association in 1894, Newport hosted the first U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur in 1895. The club was co-founded in 1893 by Theodore A. Havemeyer, whose name was given to the trophy that goes to the U.S. Amateur winner.

  'It will be eerie': The soundtrack of the 2020 Masters will be different without patrons AUGUSTA, Ga. – During one of the craziest Sundays in the storied history of the Masters, when eight players had at least a share of the lead on the back nine back in 2011, the soft-spoken Charl Schwartzel stood over a 15-foot putt for birdie on the 16th hole.…Cue the sonic boom.

Arguably the best golf course Rhode Island can offer was inaugurated in 1894 at Newport. Newport Country Club was one of the original five founding member clubs of the United States Golf Association, but the modern upstart at Westerly, Shelter Harbor, takes our top honors.

The club’s course – several designers helped create the original links-style layout, which was overhauled by A.W. Tillinghast in 1923 – has stood the test of time and today is ranked No. 48 in Golfweek’s Best list for Classic Courses built before 1960. It also is the top-ranked layout in Rhode Island on Golfweek’s Best list of private courses in each state.

Newport Country Club has gone on to host many other top events, including the 1995 U.S. Amateur won by Tiger Woods and the 2006 U.S. Women’s Open won by Annika Sorenstam. It also was scheduled to host the 2020 U.S. Senior Open before the event was canceled in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

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.
