The PGA Tour kicks off its 2022-23 season this week at the Fortinet Championship in Napa, Calif.
As the world’s best players prepare to begin another season, golf fans prepare to live vicariously through their heroes competing on courses across the United States.
To help you turn your television dream into reality, golf week has compiled 10 courses from the PGA Tour schedule that anyone can play – if their pockets are deep enough.
Want to test your skills on the island green at TPC Sawgrass? No problem. Maybe you want to feel the ocean breeze on your face as you roll off the edge of a cliff at Pebble Beach? We have what you need.
All of the courses on this list allow public access in one way or another, whether it’s standard daily green fees, through a resort, or by staying at an affiliated hotel. If there is a will, there is a starting time. Golfweek’s Best offers numerous lists of course rankings, with the list of the best public-access courses in each state among the most popular. Each of the courses below is accessible to the public, although the green fees for several of them exceed $500 per player.
The hundreds of members of Golfweek’s Best Review Panel continuously evaluate courses and rate them against 10 criteria on a 1-10 point basis. They also provide a unique overall rating for each course. These average overall grades are presented for each course below.
