Top 10 most-read articles of the year on Golf Advisor

Golfers love best-of lists, not to mention ways to play great courses for less. We looked at the most read articles published in 2016, based on your clicks.

Many of these articles are rankings or lists of some kind, but not all. Subjects that also seem to get plenty of attention are Pebble Beach and Bandon Dunes.

Tiger Woods design projects like Bluejack National received a lot of attention, but not enough to crack this list (probably because his designs are foreign and private to this point).

You can see the Top 10 most read below, and you can tweet us @golfadvisor and let us know what subjects in golf courses and travel you'd like covered in 2017.
