Yocha Dehe Golf Club in northern California tops Power Rankings for the week of March 16

The superlatives are in full force for this week's top course in the U.S.: Yocha Dehe Golf Club at Cache Creek Casino Resort in Brooks, California.

The Sacramento-area course earned high marks in all categories, including conditions and values, and had readers singing its praises in a big way.

"This course is second only to Pebble Beach," wrote u011170177. In his review, golfer Dewayne9465298 called the round the best he's ever played.

The course finished 13th in the state 2014, and given its strong start to 2015, could inch up the charts. This NoCal course was joined in the top 10 by a lot of Florida golf courses, though neighboring Apple Mountain Golf Resort, also near Sacramento, cracked the top 10 values of the week.
