Best of 2018: Virginia

The par-3 16th hole is the last of four excellent par 3s at Colonial Williamsburg's Gold Course at Golden Horseshoe.

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.

How could the Cascade Course @ The Homestead not even be listed. It is a resort course and accessible to all. Only dropped out of Golf Digest's Top 100 a few years ago.

What began with just a par-3 course and learning center, this 2,000-acre sporting ranch between Austin and Houston is finally going all-in with an ambitious championship course.
