Top 100 Golf Courses in the World - GOLF Magazine 2009

The 2009 GOLF Magazine World Top 100 ranking list features some surprising new entrants, Oitavos Dunes in Portugal, Waterville in Ireland, Chambers Bay in Washington and the Valley Club of Montecito in California, an Alister MacKenzie gem that has benefited from a successful restoration by Tom Doak. While the GOLF Magazine World Top 100 panel retains greater credibility than their Golf Digest counterparts, there remains some obvious problems with this list, including the continual ranking of East Lake, Congressional and Nine Bridges.
