If you're a golfer looking for breathtaking landscape as well as a challenge, Golf Digest has compiled a a lineup of golf courses you may want to add to your bucket list.
Golf Digest ranked the top golf courses based on criteria such as aesthetics, memorability and ambience. Landscaping was one of the components in the ranking, as well as the overall atmosphere of the course and club.
Shot values, resistance to scoring, conditioning and course design factored into the scoring, as well as the level of challenge it provided golfers. Each hole was scored in terms of length, accuracy and design.
These are the top 10 golf courses, in ascending order, according to Golf Digest’s panelists:
10. Winged Foot G.C. (West)
7,258 Yards, Par 72
The course has notable green contours that add to the memorability and challenge, according to Golf Digest. One panelist described the back nine as “one of the most complete nine holes in golf.” Winged Foot will host the 2020 U.S. Open.
