GOLF Magazine recently unveiled its 2022-23 ranking of the Top 100 Courses in the U.S. But why stop there? To better illuminate the scope of epic golf around the nation, we’ve broken the country into four regions and ranked the top 50 in each. The takeaway: whatever part of the U.S. you call home, you don’t lack for world-class options. Below, you’ll find the top 50 courses in the Southeast.
Ah, the American Southeast. This corner of the world is home to golf’s most famous tournament; you won’t have to scroll far to get to Masters host Augusta National Golf Club. Scroll further and you’ll see plenty of representatives from the Carolinas as well as from what is perhaps America’s golfiest state: Florida. You’ll find major championship hosts, not just Augusta but Pinehurst and Kiawah. You’ll find old-school, like Seminole and Old Town and Yeamans Hall. You’ll find new-school, too, like Ohoopee and Congaree and Streamsong.
In short, our raters agree that there’s a lot to love from the southeast. Check out just how much at the list below.
