Top 100 Course Criteria

There are five broad categories, weighted for importance.[13] Quality of test and design (35%), conditioning and presentation (30%), visual appeal both internally and externally (15%), the club’s facilities (10%) and the visitor experience (10%). Because this is still a subjective process, they also look closely at the written reports. A few years ago, based on strong reader feedback, they decided to exclude all courses where you cannot pay a regular green fee.
