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.
