Golf Digest has recently released its list of Top 20 Cities For Golf. In order for them to create this list, they had researches collect and analyze data based on five criteria; Climate, Cost, number of public courses, quality of public courses and accessibility. For this list, however, they only targeted the 50 most populated cities in the U.S. Which, in this caveman’s opinion caused them to miss out on a few of my personal favorite golfin’ cities.
Here are Golf Digest’s Top Ranked:
T-20: Birmingham, AL
17: San Diego
T-15: Kansas City
14: Riverside, CA
13: St. Louis
12: Oklahoma City
T-10: Portland, OR
T-4) Los Angeles
1) Dallas/Fort Worth
As of right now, Myrtle Beach, Hampton Roads, and Rochester, NY are seemingly missing from the this list. Maybe they will be on the complete list of 50 that will be available in October’s in print Issue. I usually agree with what Golf Digest has to say, but I am not so sure about this one.
What do my Rock Heads think? What’s your favorite city to golf in? Do you think they missed some?
