The 10 Best Golf Cities in AmericaGolf Magazine and the National Golf Foundation have teamed up for our first-annual countdown of the 10 Best Golf Cities in America. Who's No. 1? The answer will surprise you.
By Joe Passov
If you want to play golf a lot of golf the occasional getaway won't cut it. You need to go where the golf is: the city. That's right. Most of the country's best public courses are in or near major metro areas. To help you find the best place to live the golf life, we joined forces with the National Golf Foundation to rank the 50 biggest U.S. cities on seven factors, including affordability, number of quality courses and weather. Some results will surprise you. (We love you, Phoenix, but Columbus, Ohio, has risen from the ashes!)
Even if you won't be moving soon, any city on this list makes a great place to visit. And you might just want to live there.
