Best of 2018: Pennsylvania

The best courses from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia according to our community of golfer reviews
Royal Manchester Golf Links made the Top 50 U.S. courses in 2016.

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.
