The Golf Courses That Golfers Recommended to Others

By: Golfshake Editor | Tue 21 Dec 2021 | Comments


Leading magazines routinely publish rankings of golf courses and websites like Golfshake present data that showcases highly rated destinations, but sometimes the most valuable review you can consume is from another golfer.

When the Golfshake Community submit their thoughts on a venue, they are asked whether they would recommend it to others, a criteria that leads to the coveted Highly Recommended status on this site.

It might just be the most important rating that we have on Golfshake. So, what are the golf courses that golfers recommend to you?

Looking at the past three years, the following have been recommended by 100% of a significant number of reviews.
