Baywood Greens in Long Neck, Del. shines in the Golf Advisor Power Rankings for the week for Sept. 8

This week, it's a course from the golf mecca of Delaware, yes Delaware, topping Golf Advisor's Power Rankings, which lists the top courses of the past week as rated by golfers themselves.

Baywood Greens, one of the top courses in the Ocean City area, received particularly high marks over the past week from very satisfied golfers. The setting is a particularly remarkable one, full of gorgeously landscaped horticulture, and golfers have taken notice.

"Landscaping on the course is worth a view even if you don't play golf," wrote reviewer ffteo1949 of his round last week.

Here are the rest of the top-rated courses of the week as reviewed by Golf Advisor users in overall, value and conditions categories.

(Editor's Note: Courses needed a minimum of five ratings for the week to qualify, ties are broken by cumulative scores in sub-categories.)

If you like seaside golf, the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Delaware is your ticket. There aren't a hundred golf courses here like there are in Myrtle Beach, but the quality is just as good if not better, albeit perhaps a little more expensive. Best of all, though, for those who live in the big cities of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, it's convenient.
