Most Improved Golf Courses in 2019

By: Golfshake Editor | Mon 28 Oct 2019 | Comments


Within the Golfshake Course Section, there are over a quarter of a million independent reviews submitted by regular golfers, thousands of which have been added this year. Venues are rated across a range of categories, reflecting the expectations of everyday golfers, providing us with a vast library of information, valuable during an era where online reviews are becoming increasingly relevant and important in the golf industry. 

Breaking things down, we have compared ratings submitted in 2018 to those entered this year to see which venues across the country have seen a noticeable, positive improvement. These have all had at least 40 reviews during the past two seasons, with reviews being significantly more glowing in 2019 than in the year before.

Whether that reflects enhanced facilities, course conditions, deals, or simply more generous reviewers is unclear, but what is certain is that the below venues have had a successful year with reviews and should be considered a must visit in your area.
