You see these lists of the 100 best courses in the world in golf periodicals all the time and you wonder about the qualifications of the guys making these choices. Well you won’t have to worry about it with this one since this list was assembled from a poll by GolfCourseArchitecture.net of the guys who actually build these things for a living.
As the editor Adam Lawrence says, “Fundamentally….. we believe golf architects have a unique perspective on what makes a course great. It’s a common criticism that many, perhaps even most golfers, judge courses on factors such as the turf condition or the quality of service in the clubhouse; well, if anyone is best placed to look beyond that at the design of the course itself, it ought to be the architects.”
You will enjoy strolling through this list replete with luscious photos of the courses and glib commentary on what makes them special. Maybe you won’t agree with the ranking of some of your favorites but you will understand where they fit against the best of the best. And you may be surprised at some of the gems you did not expect to see in such company and maybe disappointed by a few that were left out.
Plop yourself in a comfy chair with a tall cool one and enjoy this is a truly authoritative list of the 100 best in the world. It may just add a few more destinations to your personal bucket list.
