Drew’s Next 100 Golf Courses – United States

Like My Next 50 Courses – Canada, I wanted to create a list of courses that interested me the most in certain regions. There’s so many good golf courses, and so many options, that it was tough to create a list.

These 100 golf courses are the ones that I want to get out to next. Some may feel out of order, or even out of place, and some may not be held to a Top 100 ranking in the states or even a Best In State ranking. All the photos shown are for the #1 course in that region.

Some of these courses are private, and unfortunately I don’t have a connection! If you know a member, help would be very much appreciated—please contact me here. Also, feel free to contact me if you want to join at one of the public courses as well!

Courses in bold are private.
