Delaware Springs tops this week's U.S. Power Rankings for June 16-22

At GolfAdvisor, we've scanned the thousands of golf courses ratings and reviews submitted and have compiled your picks for the plays of the week coast-to-coast.

The big winner? Delaware Springs Golf Course in the Texas Hill Country. Located about an hour northwest of Austin, this affordable muni scored perfect marks overall, in conditions and in value. While you no doubt heard plenty about the design team of Bill Coore & Ben Crenshaw during the U.S. Open at Pinehurst, Delaware Springs was designed by Dave Axeland and Dan Proctor, the shapers for Coore-Crenshaw at Sand Hills. Also architects of Top 100-ranked Wild Horse Golf Course in Nebraska, this may be the top duo in golf architecture you've never heard of.

Here are the Top 10 overall courses, as well as best conditioned and best values for the week of June 16th.

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