Florida's Cimarrone Golf Club tops Power Rankings for the week of Nov. 24

After placing in second last week, Jacksonville's Cimarrone Golf Club is on top of this week's power rankings, which found the top-rated courses by golfers who played over Thanksgiving week.

Cimarrone's strong 2014 ratings have been the result of new ownership who have infused better service and conditions into this semi-private facility.

"What a turnaround," wrote one reviewer who played on Nov. 20. "I've never seen anything happen so fast. The greens are great."

Here are the rest of the top-rated courses of the week as reviewed by GolfAdvisor 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.)
