Power Rankings: Best courses in November according to your reviews

Up Next

Autoplay is paused

We're looking back on the month of November by assessing the top-rated golf courses in the U.S. according to the 7,000-plus reviews submitted by everyday golfers like you.

While it's no surprise that southern courses make up the majority of this list, what is notable is that two supposed "second fiddle" courses at multi-course properties earned higher marks than their more notable siblings. A mix of lower green fees and expectations can sometimes lead to reviewers being pleasantly surprised.

Florida courses, and specifically those on the Gulf of Mexico side, dominate the month's rankings, which is good to see after a difficult hurricane season battered the region in the late-summer months. Jason Deegan recently reported on the troubles and closures facing the courses around Panama City, but nearby, Destin-area courses, including the Sandestin Resort, are faring well.

In addition to our top-rated courses, we compiled some of the best images submitted by reviewers throughout the month, many taken from exotic and/or exclusive courses that definitely warrant some bragging rights.
