Golfers' Choice: Top 20 golf courses in the U.S.

The top 20 courses in the U.S. based on your reviews from 2019
The 553 -yard par 5, 18th hole on the Wailea Golf Club Emerald Course in Wailea on the island of Maui, Hawaii.

Sunriver, Ore.
Architect: Bob Cupp
Green fees: $175-200
What they're saying: " The greens and fairways were immaculate, we played #12 from the Tips - a 680+ yard Par 5, then spotted a Bald Eagle in its nest on a great Par 3!" - gzimmerman2

Pierson, Mich.
Architect: Mike Devries
Green fees: $59-69
What they're saying: "Perfect golf experiences don't come around often but I'm 2-for-2 at Pilgrim's Run. The trees were changing color, leaves were taken care of, beer was cold, greens were in perfect shape for late fall in Michigan. The layout remains a great mix of holes where you can lay into a driver and even if you are spraying it still find it." - theburyman, Michigan Local Golf Advisor

Long Neck, Del.
Architect: Brian Ault, Bill Love
Green fees: $49-145
What they're saying: "My favorite course in the world ... So beautiful, the greens were lightning fast and as usual the course was in great condition ... It's an upscale course with upscale service. When you pay that kind of green fee you expect a lot and Baywood always delivers. Can’t wait to get back to play it again." - TroyJames

Aloha, Ore.
Architect: John Fought
Green fees: $79-95
What they're saying: "As the landscape has changed for upscale non-private golf in recent years, The Reserve Vineyards seems to be as relevant as ever. They do this by keeping one of their courses private for half the month, while letting the public play the other. This means accessible golf and the feeling of having gotten on a private club." - TimGavrich, Golf Advisor Senior Writer

Pebble Beach, Calif.
Architects: Jack Neville, H. Chandler Egan
Green fees: $550-595 | Golf package from $747/nt.
What they're saying: "The course must be walked for sure as it’s the experience of walking where the legends have played. There is truly no feeling like it ... Don’t forgot your buds can watch you tee off on hole 1 over the Internet." - Zubach

Batavia, Ohio
Architect: Jeff Osterfeld
Green fees: $65-85
What they're saying: "Probably the best course in Cincinnati! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a professional facility that’s open to the public. I always make it a priority to play there at least once in the summer." - bcaesar15

Guntersville, Ala.
Architect: Jimmy Kennamer
Green fees: $45-55 | GolfPass members save
What they're saying: "Course was primo condition, with smooth and fast greens - a LOT of character on this layout. If only I lived closer." - GolfnBear

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

Williamsburg, Va.
Architect; Robert Trent Jones Sr.
Green fees: $125-150 | Golf package from $187/nt.
What they're saying: "While the Gold Course has one of the best foursome of par 3s, the entire course is outstanding especial how it is routed amongst the rolling hills, Robert Trent Jones Sr at his best." - cjohnbrown

Wailea, Maui, Hawaii
Architect: Robert Trent Jones Jr.
Green fees: $149-250
What they're saying: "The course layout is fantastic & they have tee boxes for all levels of players. Views are some of the best on Maui. I’ve played courses from California to Scotland and as far as Thailand; this course is in my top 5." - Brianoconnor5

Verona, N.Y.
Architect: Tom Fazio
Green fees: $120-150
What they're saying: "I have yet to find anything that exceeds Turning Stone's dedication to the customers. From the moment you pass through the gate at Atunyote to the moment you leave the Fazio gem you are surrounded by excellence." - Duane7133
