For the first time since 2012, Golf Digest Magazine has produced a World Top 100 ranking of golf courses outside the USA.

Aside from serving to remind us that Golf Digest’s strength (and consistency) remains with local American rankings, this list celebrates South Korean golf (three courses in Top 30!) and Professional tournament venues. The fact TPC Kuala Lumpur, Jumeirah, Sentosa, Siam CC, Sheshan, Black Mountain, The Emirates and Jack Nicklaus GC Korea all outrank the likes of Prestwick and Royal Adelaide is ‘interesting’ to say the least.

Also noteworthy in this latest list are how the Australian courses have bounced around over the years. Click their numbers to enjoy the wild rides of Royal Melbourne (East & West), Barnbougle Dunes, Ellerston, Royal Adelaide and the National (Moonah).
