“While judging golf courses is obviously subjective, and everyone has his or her opinion on what makes one better than another, the Top 100 is an earnest and comprehensive effort to identify the best of the best in Canada, the top 4.3 percentile of the nearly 2,300 golf courses in the country,” says Jason Logan, Editor of SCOREGolf.

“We do it not only to foster discussion, but also to honour the genius of those architects who designed these wonderful courses and the hard work of those who maintain them every day,” Logan adds.

SCOREGolf began ranking golf courses in 1988 when the top 15 in the country were voted on by a small panel. The list expanded to 25 in 1990, then to 50, and to 100 for the first time in 2000. The current panel of more than 100 volunteer course raters judge the courses on several categories, including beauty, design, par-3 holes, par-4 holes, par-5 holes, conditioning and fun factor.

Along with more detailed information about all 100 courses, the SCOREGolf‘s Summer Issue will also reveal the “Next 25” as well as Canada’s top nine-hole course. Other stories include a golf adventure to Haida Gwaii; a story on what it’s like to be a caddie at Cabot Cape Breton; the inside story on the comeback of acclaimed Sagebrush golf course in B.C.; and a story on the growing number of women becoming head superintendents at Canadian courses.
