To accompany our biennial World 100 Greatest Courses list, Golf Digest also publishes a ranking of the best golf courses in every country.
Yes, every country where there is golf. To do so, we surveyed our 1,700+ Golf Digest panelists from North America, who are as well-traveled a bunch as you’ll find in the industry, in addition to a panel of 350 golf enthusiasts from around the globe to help us with coverage on more remote parts of the world. The end result is as comprehensive of a country-by-country list as you’ll find. By our last count, there were 206 countries with golf in the world. We’ll hope there are even more the next time we do this ranking.
KEY: The number in parentheses after each country name is the approximate number of golf courses in that country. Where a facility has more than one course, the name of the ranked course is shown in parentheses.
