Best of 2018: Georgia

The best public, semi-private and resort courses you can play based on our community of reviews
Sea Island is a scenic, coastal retreat in Georgia.

The yearly Golf Advisor state best-of lists are compiled by analyzing the ratings and reviews submitted by members of our community throughout the year. We use our Golf Advisor Index logic that weights newer reviews and combine it with a course's weighted subcategory averages. Reviews from trusted and active reviewers are weighted heavier than inactive members. Courses must offer public access and have received at least one review in 2018 to be eligible for this year's list.
