GOLF’s latest ranking of the Top 100 Courses in the U.S. is headlined by some familiar names.

Pine Valley maintained its stranglehold on the top spot, while historic sites like Cypress, Shinnecock and Oakmont held steady in the top five.

While most recreational players can only dream of playing the venerable likes of Augusta National and New York’s Fishers Island, a significant portion of this year’s list — more than 20 percent, in fact! — is comprised of courses that are publicly accessible. That’s a 50 percent increase from GOLF’s 1995 ranking — a boon for those with a bucket-list golf trip in mind.

Below, you’ll find a list of all 21 courses you can play from the 2022-23 ranking of the Top 100 Courses in the U.S., listed in order of their ranking.
