GCA launches golf course rankings

Golf Course Architecture is delighted to introduce its first Architects’ Choice Golf Course Rankings. Voting for these rankings is exclusively open to professional golf course architects, making it a unique insight into the very best of golf course design.

With most professional golf course architects having visited a large number of golf courses throughout the world, and having a very specific eye for quality that comes from their full time work on golf design, we believe these rankings will be the most insightful evaluation into golf course design quality there has ever been.

Architects will select their own criteria for the ranking, factoring in merits such as strategic value, beauty, fun and history and weighting those attributes as they see fit, delivering individual top ten lists that will be combined to produce a full Top 100 ranking.

In addition to this full Top 100 list, we’ll be splicing and dicing the data to deliver more insight on the architects’ choices, looking at regions, types of golf course, prevalence of particular architects’ work and the balance of modern and historic designs.

We’re now in the process of surveying golf course architects throughout the world to compile this unique ranking, and look forward to sharing the results with you in a special report in the July 2013 edition of Golf Course Architecture.

Are you a professional golf course architect?
If you are, or you have been, then we’d like you to cast your votes for the GCA Architects’ Choice Golf Course Rankings 2013. Visit www.golfcoursearchitecture.net/rankings and complete the form before the closing date of 3 May 2013 to ensure your selections are considered in our final list.
