Is this list a joke? Must be only courses that are with GolfNow but they don’t say that. No Homestead, RTJ, Kinlock, Bayville, The Farm, Primland, or The Virginian to name a few. No one should take this list serious.

People who go on golfadvisor are looking for courses that are reasonably priced and accessible to the public on a regular basis, not private or cost $225 to play. I agree the courses you say are of better quality, but also cannot easily be played by the regular folk.

Too bad the # 5 listed course is closed. RNK was one of my favorites. Hopefully some investor will reopen that awesome course!
