Come one, come all. That’s the motto behind this titanic 50-state compilation of the best golf courses in America. Whether you’re a single-digit handicapper or a weekend hacker, anyone can nab a tee time at these top-notch public access destinations. Consider this an anthology of resort courses, daily fee links, casino tracks, and munis from the Maine woods to the Arizona desert, the Oregon coastline to the Last Frontier.
Since this guide is broken down by state, every corner of these United States gets a turn at the podium. Some courses are high-priced Top 100s (ahem, TPC Sawgrass in Florida) that bucket-list golfers yearn to play once before they’re buried in a pot bunker à la Pete Dye. Others are up-and-coming hotbeds in less-visited states (Big Cedar Lodge in southwest Missouri comes to mind). Then, of course, there are the certified steals that you could make your home course and play over and over again (Circling Raven in Idaho, we’re looking at you).
We’re lucky to live in an era when tremendous public golfing options aren’t limited to any single destination—they’re everywhere. So kick back, grab a pen and piece of paper, and map out your next golf-centric adventure. Better yet, print out this best golf courses list and strive to play ‘em all someday. Now that’s a 10-year plan worth sticking to.
