The Best Golf Course in Every State

There are approximately 15,000 golf courses in the United States. That's 2.25 million acres of golf real estate across 50 states.

If you were to lay every hole from every course in a straight line, you'd get roughly 90 million yards of fairway, enough to cover the width of the Continental United States 19 times.

Naturally, however, not all those courses are worth playing. With this in mind, travel site WanderBat set out to pick the single best golf course in every state. To help inform their rankings, they turned to the experts at Golf Digest, Golf.com and Golf Advisor. The final list incorporates a variety of input, from expert opinions on course design to reviews and votes from thousands of golfers.

So let's run down the 50 winners. We'll start with the some of the lesser-known venues, then count down to the states with the very best courses in the nation.
