Golf Magazine's Top-100 Courses You Can Play

From bargains under $50 to once-in-a-lifetime splurges, there's something for everyone in this year's ranking of the best public access courses in the U.S.

Way back when, some French guy uttered the equivalent of, "the more things change, the more they stay the same." That's true at the top of our ranking of the best public access courses in the U.S., where Oregon's Pacific Dunes again edges out Pebble Beach for honors among our course-ranking panelists and well-traveled spies.

Perhaps the strongest challenge to Pacific Dunes might come from its sibling, Old Macdonald, the highest-ranked of seven courses to debut this year. As we welcome back two old classics that enjoyed recent makeovers, we offer a tip of the cap to two Top 100 Courses that closed in
Pacific Dunes - Bandon, Oregon

this brutal economy (Beechtree and Reflection Bay). But that same economy has opened up two other once-private courses that make our list.

Clicking on the list below will take you to the full list where you can scroll through it. Also be sure to check out the interactive map they have as well (pictured in the banner image).
