Golf courses are ranked against other courses in their state or nationally to produce Golfweek’s final rankings. Members of Golfweek’s course-ratings panel continually evaluate courses and rate them based on 10 criteria, including:

  • Ease and intimacy of routing - The extent to which the sequence of holes follows natural contours and unfolds in an unforced manner.
  • Variety and memorability of par 3s, 4s and 5s - Different clubs hit; extent to which the angles of play create interesting and varied playing options; and extent to which holes offer variety of options from the tee and on the second shot.
  • Basic quality of conditioning - Variety of playing textures; extent of turf coverage; consistency and quality of bunker sand.
  • Walk in the park test - Degree to which the course ultimately is worth spending a half-day on.
