GOLF PASS | World Top 100 golf destinationsFriday, May 7, 2021
Few sports in the world are as globally interconnected as golf. And perhaps the greatest thing about the game is that any golfer, of any ability, anywhere in the world can travel to play many of the planet’s most incredible courses. They can play courses that have hosted major championships or have been laid out in some of the most magical corners of the globe.
With golfers everywhere eager to return to travel this year, GolfPass’ staff of experienced writers has compiled an extensive list of the world’s Top 100 golf destinations. We determined the list based on each destination’s distinct allure to golfers around the globe. A strong roster of publicly accessible courses is the main criteria, but each destination’s history, off-course attractions, landmarks and dining, as well as hospitality, culture and collection of private clubs were also considered. To determine where a destination should rank, we often asked the question: “Which place do I want to visit more?” The answer sometimes carried equal weight as the notion of “Where can I play?”
