Best Public Golf Courses in the US
No matter where you travel, you can always find the best public golf courses to enjoy the game.
With the help of the emergence of Tiger Woods, the popularity of exploded in the late 1990s and early 2000s, drawing hundreds of thousands of new players to the game. Gen X-ers to soon-to-be retired Baby Boomers picked up a set of clubs and needed a place to play, but most couldn’t afford a private club.
To keep up, developers in every city and many small towns from Maine to Hawaii built courses to accommodate the new playing public. Many of these courses were built on minimal budgets with the goal of attracting local players. Some developers reached well down into their considerably deep pockets and built courses that are monuments to the game – with green fees that are out of reach for the average local player – to attract players from all over the world who are willing to pay up to $500 for a round on a truly great course. Only a few courses reach that price extreme, but you be able to find a great public course to enjoy the game.
