Here are the 11 courses that jumped into this year’s Top 100 in the World
There are plenty of familiar names on this year’s list of Top 100 Courses in the World. But it’s good to have some new blood too, right? Our brand-new list features 11 courses that jumped inside this year’s Top 100, reflecting changing trends and a revamped ranking. That doesn’t mean they’re all newly-opened — they range from 1895 to 2018 — but these 11 tracks are decidedly in vogue.
H.S. Colt is the big winner from this list; three of his designs have made their way back onto the list. Those additions — Rye, St. George’s Hill and De Pan — helped Colt to his spot as the most-represented designer with 11 credits in the top 100.
Gil Hanse seems to be everywhere these days, and he’s represented here with a restoration (Sleepy Hollow, which leads the U.S. additions) as well as an original design (Ohoopee Match Club). Seth Raynor gains two credits as well with Sleepy Hollow and the emergence of Yale at No. 83.
Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw hop onto the list (again) with Bandon Trails at No. 87., while Tom Doak’s decade-old Montana design Rock Creek Cattle Co. rounds out the list at No. 99. Check out the courses below — and start dreaming up your next golf adventure.
