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.

Aspen Lakes not on the list and Quail Valley is?

I've played Aspen Lakes. Very nice. It also went into bankruptcy last year. Hope it makes it through to the other side. https://www.ktvz.com/news/aspen-lakes-golf-course-files-for-chapter-11-bankruptcy/762846705

How could Old McDonald not make this list??!!
World class course in a unique setting. While I hail from NC, I have played Old MaC four times and marveled at its splendor and challenge each time.

Developers are putting more attention into their golf courses than ever. If you are looking to live within a golf community, you need to learn how to distinguish high-quality from mediocre residential layouts.
