Southern California's Classic Club tops the Power Rankings for the week of Dec. 1

California and Florida dominate this week's Power Rankings, which showcase the top-rated golf courses from Golf Advisor reviewers.

This week, the top spot goes to the Classic Club, an Arnold Palmer design in Palm Desert, Calif. The neighboring Stadium Course at PGA West, fresh off its nomination in Matt Ginella's Top 50 public courses in the U.S., also made the top 10.

"The greens are PERFECT right now!" one reviewer wrote about the Classic Club last week. "The views are insane, and it doesn't hurt that I was playing really well after a week of golf in Palm Springs."
