Come one, come all: Here are GOLF’s Top 100 Courses You Can Play, 2021-22

For the first time our ranking of the best public-access courses ventured outside the United States into Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean. Expanding our reach means, for starters, you can find courses in prime condition at any time of year. The latest Top 100 Courses You Can Play also approximates the character of our U.S. Top 100 ranking more closely than ever. It’s nothing but the highest-quality courses from start to finish. In fact, 21 You Can Plays also reside on our U.S. list and three international ones grace our World Top 100. There have never been better public golf options in North America than right now.
