Golfers' Choice 2022: Best golf courses in California

More than 40,000 reviews have been tallied to determine California's best public golf courses based on our community of reviewers.
The 11th hole at Quail Lodge & Golf Club sits in a secluded spot away from the neighborhood and the resort.

The annual Golfers' Choice lists generated by GolfPass are compiled by analyzing the ratings and reviews submitted by members of our community throughout the year. We use GolfPass' Ratings Index logic that weights newer reviews and combine it with a course's weighted subcategory averages. Courses must offer public access and have received at least one review in 2021 to be eligible for this year's list.
