Golfers’ Choice 2023 Reveals Top 10 U.S. Golf Courses for the Year

Golfers’ Choice 2023 has revealed the Top 10 U.S. Golf Courses for the year, with The Ravines Golf Club, The Golf Club at The Highlands, The Traces Golf Club, and The Traces Golf Club all making the cut.[0] The rankings were determined by analyzing ratings and reviews submitted by members of the GolfPass community throughout the year.[0] The pandemic golf boom continued to bring in more reviews than ever before, relied on by recreational golfers for its user-generated golf course reviews and expert travel content.[0]

Michigan has some of the best resort golf courses in America, and an overview of the best can be found here.[1] From Laughlin Ranch Golf Club in Bullhead City, Arizona to Mauna Lani Resort South Course in Waimea, Hawaii, there is something for every golfer.[2] Golfers' Choice 2023 also included number one ranked Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, California, and number three Lick Creek Golf Course in Pekin, Illinois.[3]

For those looking for a winter escape, the best golf courses include TPC Sawgrass, Dye’s Valley Course in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, and Journey at Pechanga in Temecula, California. For a unique experience, Forest Oaks Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina is a must-play, and Poipu Bay Golf Course in Koloa, Hawaii offers stunning views of the Pacific Ocean.[0] Heritage Glen Golf Club in Paw Paw, Michigan, Indian Wells Golf Resort Celebrity Course in Indian Wells, California, Yocha Dehe at Cache Creek Casino Resort in Brooks, California, and Paso Robles Golf Club in Paso Robles, California are also top-tier picks.

GolfPass’ managing editor Jason Scott Deegan remarks that “What I love about this year’s Golfers’ Choice Top 50 is the variety of courses represented. The difference in price point, architecture and setting is profound from the number one course — Mauna Lani South, a high-end resort course in Hawaii — all the way to number 50 — the Gladstone Golf Club, a sort of hidden gem in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.”[2] Golfers can check out the full list of courses here.
