Golfweek's Best: Next 100 Modern Courses

Ever wonder who almost made the Top 100? So do we.

Every year, Golfweek’s network of course raters scours the country evaluating courses for our annual Golfweek’s Best Top 100 Classic and Top 100 Modern courses. The results have been tabulated and are profiled in Golfweek’s March 11 issue.

If your course didn’t make the Top 100, perhaps you might find some consolation in this list. We call it The Next 100.

Take a look and see whether your course might be on the cusp of cracking the Top 100.

Here are The Next 100 Modern courses with 12 or more votes. This year, it took 15 votes and at least a 6.86 average to qualify for the Top 100. (* not enough votes to be ranked)
