Golfweek's Best top 25 modern Canadian Courses: Cabot leads the way

By

Welcome to the 2019 Golfweek’s Best listing for modern Canadian courses, those built after 1960.

The members of our course-ratings panel continually evaluate courses and rate them based on our 10 criteria. They also file a single, overall rating on each course.

Those overall ratings on each course are averaged together to produce a final rating for each course. Then each course is ranked against other courses in its state, or nationally, to produce the final rankings.

GOLFWEEK’S BEST: Modern Canadian courses built before 1960

Each course is listed with its  location, architect(s) and an average ranking from all the Golfweek raters who reviewed it.

Editor’s note: This list was updated Nov. 18 after one of the courses on the list was dropped because it had been closed for a period of time.
