Golfers' Choice 2021: Best golf courses in Texas

Best public-access courses in the Lone Star state based on reviews from our community of golfers.
In Blanco, affordable Vaaler Creek Golf Club has one of the Hill Country's top ratings by Golf Advisor reviewers.

The annual Golfers' Choice lists compiled by the Golf Advisor community are compiled by analyzing the ratings and reviews submitted by members of the review community throughout the year. We use Golf Advisor's Ratings 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 2020 to be eligible for this year's list.
