Best Golf Clubs and Best Golf Courses
Leading Courses makes a distinction between the rating of Golf Clubs and Golf Courses. Rankings of the Best Golf Clubs are about the whole picture: general impression, the course, maintenance, hospitality and so on. These are the golf clubs that really stand out of the crowd and tick all the boxes.
For the Best Golf Course, it’s just about the rating of the golf course itself. The rating of the course does have a lot of weight in the overall rating of a golf club.
Best Golf Courses in 15 countries
When a golf club has gathered enough reviews, they are eligible to qualify for the Golfers’ Choice Rankings. To make sure that ratings stay relevant, reviews are devalued over time. Rankings are only released in countries where Leading Courses has enough reviewed courses to create a reliable comparison.
This year, rankings have been created in the following 15 countries: Austria, Belgium, Curaçao, Cyprus, France, Germany, Italy, Mauritius, Morocco, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, The Netherlands, Turkey, United Arab Emirates.
