Best of 2016: Top 15 golf courses in Missouri

The Show Me State's best golf courses according to your ratings and reviews for 2016 have arrived. Top facilities from St. Louis to Kansas City, as well as destinations like the Ozarks and Branson, all made this year's ranking.

To compile our state lists, we used a similar method to that of our our national Top 50 ranking. A course's score is based on their overall (50%) rating and subcategory average (50%). Reviews are weighted based on how prolific that reviewer is on Golf Advisor, and a course receives a bump in their rating if their score is better than that reviewer's average score.
