Top 100 Golf Courses of the World

Top 100 Golf Courses of the World is the ranking list on which every golf facility would love to appear. The reality, however, is that most courses which feature on the World Top 100 table are household names that have become permanent fixtures.

Many of these great layouts have been ranked within the World Top 100 since golf course rankings began. The Old course at St Andrews, Augusta National, Royal Melbourne, Pebble Beach and Muirfield are all championship venues with centuries of history. Any list that failed to feature any of the aforementioned courses would be unbelievable. So how hard is it for a course to become World ranked?

The short answer is – rock-hard. However, new courses do appear on the list from time to time and with the best land, the right architect and a lot of money, anything is possible. Just ask Donald Trump. To see our latest World Top 100, simply scroll down this page. To read our latest news release, click the following link: Top 100 Golf Courses of the World.
