Golfers' Choice 2023: Top 25 Golf Courses for Off-Course Amenities

Every golfer loves a club with all the fixings, including a great course, clubhouse, restaurant and practice area.
FarmLinks at Pursell Farms has all the amenities of a nice resort.

For some golfers, having the full package of amenities - a nice clubhouse, restaurant and practice area - is almost as important as the golf course.

Even simple things like clean restrooms and a beverage cart make golfers feel welcome.

We've analyzed your ratings and reviews from 2022 to find the clubs with the best marks for these off-course amenities. Many of these courses to be honored by our reviewers show up on this list year after year because their facilities are top-notch and just can't be matched by the competition. Having it all sells a "golf experience" as much as it does a round of golf.

  1. Midlothian, Va.
    What they're saying: "This golf course is better than most private courses in the state. Fantastic conditions, great practice facilities and always a joy to play!" - Richard7770669

    What they're saying: "The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the practice area is top notch, and the course was immaculate. The views from some of the tee boxes were incredible.
