10. Prairie Landing Golf Club
West Chicago, Ill.
Green fees: $56-75
What they're saying: "First time playing here, and I understand why it's on the short list of best Chicago public courses. Lots of risk/reward holes, with a tough layout, but all par 3s were accessible. Greens rolled great and bunkers were pristine." - cecilburrito

9. Talamore Golf Club
Southern Pines, N.C.
Green fees: $69-119
What they're saying: "I cannot wait to go back and play this course again. Amazing resort quality conditions at a fair price. " - Wgandy1

8. Quail Lodge Golf Resort
Carmel, Calif.
Green fees: $120-170
What they're saying: "The beautiful Carmel Valley hillside surrounds you with its majestic moss covered tree line and mountains create an amphitheater for golf." - Billyd11

7. Wolf Course at Las Vegas Paiute
Las Vegas
Green fees: $179-209
What they're saying: "This is the fifth time playing the Wolf course. The conditions and pace of play was awesome. I also made a hole in home on the 4th hole so I might be biased." - Drpower69

6. Jones Course at Pinehills Golf Club
Plymouth, Mass.
Green fees: $110-135
