Editor's Note: To view the latest New York Golfers' Choice lists for 2021, click here.

The annual Golf Advisor state Golfers' Choice lists are compiled by analyzing the ratings and reviews submitted by members of our review 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 2019 to be eligible for this year's list.
