Welcome to Golf Digest's Places to Play

Golf course construction continues, providing golfers with more places to tee up their golf ball. The growth of the game shows no sign of abating. There are new courses on mountain tops, across searing deserts, amid tropical jungles, alongside oceans, and downtown in a city near you. Never has there been such a choice of great places to go and play golf.

Faced with so many options, how do you decide which course deserves your money? There's nothing worse than paying out a hefty green fee only to be confronted by a boring layout in bad condition, where the staff is rude and the sandwiches in the clubhouse are stale.

As with all good decisions, the key is in having the right information, and that's where Golf Digest's Places to Play steps in. The goal of Places to Play is simple: to provide you with the most comprehensive information on public-access golf courses in North America. No one else has attempted to rate all of the best courses on a national basis. And the courses are not rated by the editors of Golf Digest, nor by a panel of experts, but by the most knowledgeable people in the game: you the golfers.

Places to Play is the only book you'll need to plan your golf vacation or find a new and interesting course to play.
