Best golf courses in Texas, according to GOLF Magazine’s expert course raters

Wolf Point Golf Club is the top course in Texas.

For every great course that made GOLF’s 2020-21 ranking of the Top 100 Courses in the U.S. , dozens of more must-plays were left on the outside looking in — including at least a handful in your home state. Some of these designs just missed out on a Top 100 nomination, others finished deeper down the ranking, but all are worthy of your time. To shed light on the best courses in every state, we broke out the full results of our Top 100 Courses polling into state-by-state lists. Here’s a closer look at Texas.

Number of courses and U.S. rank: 835 (4)* Number of golfers per capita rank: 32* Average public-course greens fees: $$ out of $$$* Average daily temp and rank: 64.8 (4) Annual precipitation and rank: 28.9 (34)

Built as a wealthy rancher’s private playground, “The Saint Andrews of Texas” is one of the world’s most exclusive courses with only six hundred or so people having ever played it. The layout looks flat and harmless, but architect Mike Nuzzo’s brilliant cloverleaf design makes the wind a constant challenge and brings Keller Creek into play on eight holes. You won’t find ball washers, tee markers or yardages at Wolf Point, but there are camels and a private airstrip. Tom Doak says the special dwarf Bermuda greens are the best in Texas.

How we rank America’s best golf courses

For  the newly released 2020-21 U.S. list , each panelist was provided a list of 489 courses. Beside that list of courses were 11 “buckets,” or groupings. If  our panelists  considered a course to be among the top three in the country, they ticked that box. If they believed the course to be among Nos. 4-10 in the U.S., they checked that box, followed by 11-25, 26-50, and so on.

Panelists were also free to write in courses that they felt should have been included on the ballot (we had fewer than a handful of such additions in the U.S. vote).

Points were assigned to each bucket; to arrive at an average score for each course, we divide its aggregate score by the number of votes. From those point tallies, the courses are then ranked accordingly. It is an intentionally simple and straightforward process. Why? Because it invariably produces results that are widely lauded. Like the game itself, there’s no need to unnecessarily overcomplicate things.

Meet our course raters

We empower and hold accountable a group of 97 well-traveled — and well-connected — golfers/aficionados, each capable of expressing their own sense of design excellence at the highest level. The group is seasoned and experienced — we look for raters who know what’s out there, what’s changing and what’s coming down the pike. And from judging posts across four continents, our panelists are positioned to place courses from different regions around the globe into proper context, one of the main reasons GOLF’s Top 100 Courses rankings are the most esteemed in the game.

Other ranking outlets employ thousands of raters. Our less-is-more approach creates a more meaningful and thoughtful list. Think about it: When you plan a golf trip, do you call every golfer you know for their take? No. You contact a handful of people whose opinions you value most.

Valero Texas Open at TPC San Antonio

The Oaks course was designed by Greg Norman and with a player consultant by Sergio Garcia. The Oaks course reflects the TOUR’s departure from the modern tournament-style course (expansive grass areas and spectator mounding) to a more natural look and feel, without sacrificing the fan experience making it very tournament-friendly. The Oaks course will host the PGA TOUR’s Valero Texas Open from April 4 – 7, 2024.

The 2024 edition of the Valero Texas Open, will return to TPC San Antonio’s Oaks course for the 15th year. This will be the sixth year of a 10-year contract extension between the PGA TOUR and Valero Energy Corporation; a deal which positions the tournament in a coveted slot on the TOUR schedule– the week preceding the Masters Tournament.

ABOUT THE VALERO TEXAS OPEN

The Valero Texas Open, first played in 1922, is the 3rd oldest PGA TOUR tournament. It’s only younger than the Western Open (1899) and Canadian Open (1904). If you include the U.S. Open (1895) managed by the USGA, and the PGA Championship (1916) managed by the PGA of America, then the Valero Texas Open is the sixth oldest professional tournament worldwide. The Valero Texas Open is the oldest professional golf tournament to be held in the same city its entire existence. In 2022, the Valero Texas Open celebrated its 100th anniversary.

Its list of champions includes some of the greatest names in golf history: Walter Hagen, Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Arnold Palmer, Ben Crenshaw, Hale Irwin, Lee Trevino, Nick Price, Justin Leonard, Zach Johnson, Adam Scott, Jimmy Walker, and Jordan Spieth, to name a few.

Since Valero became title sponsor in 2002, the Valero Texas Open is always driven by its charitable mission – in 2015, the tournament raised $10.4 million for charity, making it proud yet humbled to become only the fourth PGA TOUR event to eclipse the $100 Million milestone in funds raised for charity. Thanks to the generosity of the community, the Valero Texas Open, along with the Champions fore Charity fundraising program, and the Valero Benefit for Children, raised a record breaking $23 million in 2023, bringing the grand total to $232 million in charitable giving. Please visit www.ValeroTexasOpen.com for more information.

PGA Tour stops in each state you can play

pga tour golf courses in texas

Unlike other professional sports where the fields of play are reserved for competitors only, many of professional golf’s annual stops are open to the public. There is a certain intrigue to playing the same courses that the best players in the world tackle—trying to replicate the shots that produced dramatic triumphs on the biggest stage.

During its 2021-22 season, the PGA Tour will travel to private and public tracks across 22 different states. This collection includes the 21 courses across nine states that will host a PGA Tour event this season and are open for public play.

TPC Scottsdale (Stadium)

tpc-scottsdale-stadium-fourteenth-hole-12552

Even after the WMPO is complete, the facility leaves up the giant grandstands surrounding the par-3 16th, so public golfers can get a taste of the experience—minus the 20,000 rowdy fans. The Stadium course features challenging greens and culminates with a memorable finishing stretch.

California:

Silverado resort and spa (north).

Situated in the heart of the Wine Country, the North course at Silverado Resort and Spa annually hosts the PGA Tour’s Fortinet Championship, which kicked off the tour’s 2021-22 schedule. Stay at the resort for the opportunity to play this Johnny Miller-redesigned track that features narrow, oak-lined fairways.

PGA West (Stadium)

John Henebry

Annually hosting a PGA Tour event in January, the Stadium course is known for its risk-reward challenges, plus the massive 18-foot high bunker on the par-5 16th hole as well as the island-green par-3 17th hole.

PGA West (Nicklaus Tournament)

pga-west-nicklaus-tournament-course-fifteenth-hole-13807

The Nicklaus Tournament course at PGA West is part of the annual rotation of courses for the PGA Tour event. The Nicklaus-designed layout is forgiving off the tee, demands precise approach shots and features two island greens.

Torrey Pines (South)

/content/dam/images/golfdigest/fullset/2021/6/torrey pines south.jpg

Ranked No. 42 on Golf Digest’s America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses, the South course is home to eight of Tiger Woods’ career wins on the PGA Tour, including the 2008 U.S. Open, his 14th major victory. Perhaps best known for the dramatic finishes in its two U.S. Opens (2008 and 2021), the South course annually hosts the PGA Tour’s Farmers Insurance Open.

Torrey Pines (North)

Mark Degnan

The North course at Torrey Pines is used (along with the South) during the first two rounds of the PGA Tour’s Farmers Insurance Open. Renovated in 2016 by Tom Weiskopf, the North is more playable than the South but offers equally (if not superior) scenic ocean views.

Pebble Beach Golf Links

Pebble-Beach-Golf-Links-No-6-8-Joann-Dost.jpg

Perhaps the greatest meeting of land and sea, Pebble Beach has been No. 1 on Golf Digest’s ranking of America’s best public courses since the inception of our public list in 2000. In addition to the annual PGA Tour stop, Pebble Beach is slated to host numerous USGA championships in the coming decades, including the 2023 U.S. Women’s Open and 2027 U.S. Open.

Spyglass Hill

4th Hole, Spyglass Hill Golf Course, Pebble Beach, CA

Evan Schiller

Inside the top 10 of our public ranking, Spyglass Hill is one of three courses in the rotation for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Weaving through the majestic Monterey pines through the middle of the round, and the giant sand dunes on the first five holes, Spyglass Hill—ranked No. 51 on our latest ranking of America’s 100 Greatest—might be Robert Trent Jones Jr.’s best work.

Tahoe Mountain Club (Old Greenwood)

Since 2020, the Old Greenwood course at Tahoe Mountain Club has hosted the Barracuda Championship on the PGA Tour. This Jack Nicklaus design plays among 600 acres of towering pines in the High Sierras.

PGA National (Champion)

pga-national-champion-third-hole-2106

PGA National Resort

Routinely one of the toughest courses on tour, The Champion course at PGA National is home to The Bear Trap—the demanding three-hole stretch (Nos. 15-17) that requires precise iron play. With wind often playing a factor and water lurking on many holes, The Champion is a true ball-striking test.

Bay Hill Club and Lodge

Orlando-Bay-Hill-Club-Lodge-Hole-17.jpg

There’s no shortage of history at Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill Club and Lodge—with its ties to Mr. Palmer and Woods’ eight wins at the annual PGA Tour stop. Stay at the Bay Hill Club and Lodge and you can play the Champion and Challenger nines, where the Arnold Palmer Invitational is played. It offers a stern test with deep rough and imposing lakes lurking.

TPC Sawgrass (Stadium)

Home to The Players, one of professional golf’s premier events, the Stadium course at TPC Sawgrass boasts one of the most recognizable par 3s in the world at the island-green 17th.

Innisbrook’s Copperhead course, the host of the Valspar Championship, offers a unique taste of Florida golf with its tight, tree-lined fairways and rolling terrain. The course is a tough ball-striking challenge with a demanding three-hole finish—known as the Snake Pit—that often makes for dramatic finishes to the annual PGA Tour stop.

Sea Island Resort (Seaside)

Stephen Szurlej

Ranked No. 36 on Golf Digest’s America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses, the Seaside course at Sea Island Resort hosts a PGA Tour event in the fall. The layout plays along the Atlantic Ocean and features large clamshell bunkers and exposed sand dunes off many fairways.

Sea Island Resort (Plantation)

/content/dam/images/golfdigest/fullset/course-photos-for-places-to-play/Sea Island Plantation12_DJI_0135_.jpg

The Plantation course was recently redesigned by Sea Island resident Davis Love III and his brother, Mark, recapturing the traditional profile of Walter Travis’ 1928 original nine-hole course. The drivable par-4 10th features a green guarded by water and a landing area protected by a principal-nose bunker.

Kapalua (Plantation)

Each year, Kapalua’s Plantation course kicks off the PGA Tour’s calendar-year schedule with its wide, dramatic fairways and stunning views. The Plantation course is ranked No. 23 on Golf Digest’s America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses and closes with a 663-yard par 5 that is the longest finishing hole on any Golf Digest nationally ranked course.

TPC Deere Run

The site of Jordan Spieth’s first PGA Tour win, TPC Deere Run annually hosts the John Deere Classic. Located in the Quad Cities just over two hours from Chicago, the course was built on the site of a former Arabian horse farm and plays along a rolling landscape.

TPC Louisiana

As home of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans since 2007, this championship golf course has been described as “Sawgrass on steroids.” Designed by Pete Dye and influenced by PGA Tour professionals Steve Elkington and Kelly Gibson, this 7,400 yard par-72 offers a challenging mix of fast greens, hidden bunkers, large cypress trees and water.

The Sea Pines Resort/Rob Tipton

Known for the red-and-white-striped lighthouse behind the 18th green and for hosting the RBC Heritage the week after the Masters, Harbour Town demands accuracy with narrow, tree-lined fairways and small greens. Ranked No. 25 on Golf Digest’s America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses, this Pete Dye design plays mostly inland before 17 and 18 emerge with views of Calibogue Sound.

Memorial Park Golf Course

Keyur Khamar

A significant renovation was completed by Tom Doak (in collaboration with Brooks Koepka) to transform the old municipal course at Memorial Park into a layout worthy of being a PGA Tour venue. The revitalized course, now armed with Doak signature green complexes, has hosted the Houston Open since 2020.

TPC San Antonio (Oaks)

/content/dam/images/golfdigest/fullset/course-photos-for-places-to-play/TPC San Antonio Oaks 16.jpg

Host of the Valero Texas Open, the Oaks course at TPC San Antonio is Golf Digest’s top-ranked public course in the Lone Star State. The Greg Norman design (with an assist from Sergio Garcia) tips out at 7,435 yards and incorporates some rocky terrain and native grasses nicely in the routing.

Scottie scheffler takes different approach into 2024 british open with history on the line, share this article.

The first time Scottie Scheffler played links golf was 2021.

That’s right, the World No. 1 who is having one of the best seasons since Tiger Woods, didn’t play links golf until the Scottish Open in 2021. Now, he’s the favorite to win the 2024 British Open at Royal Troon , which begins Thursday in Scotland.

“Our Walker Cup was in the States. I never made the Palmer Cup to come over here and play,” Scheffler said Tuesday during his pre-tournament press conference. “Didn’t play any junior tournaments or anything like that over here.”

That means Scheffler is still learning, and it’s why he switched his preparation up heading into the final major championship of the year.

Scheffler’s last start came nearly a month ago at the Travelers Championship, which he won , topping Tom Kim in a playoff. Since then, it’s been time at home with Meredith and Bennett, trying to rest up before a busy stretch of golf that includes the British Open, Olympics and FedEx Cup Playoffs.

So instead of teeing it up last week at the Scottish Open, like most of the top players on the PGA Tour did, he spent time playing other courses in Scotland and then got in early at Troon to begin his chase for major No. 3.

“I felt like it was more important for me to get over here to this golf course and prepare, getting used to the conditions of the grass, the bunkers over here,” Scheffler said of his decision to skip the Scottish. “I just feel like you have to be more creative here. I love that part of it. I feel like, when I do come over here, this is really how golf was intended to be played.”

Creativity is something Scheffler knows all about, with his mesmerizing foot motion when he swings to his tantalizing ability to dominate any golf course.

At Troon, bunkers and wind are the main culprits of high scores. Both things are something Scheffler is familiar with handling.

“One of the things I liked that the R&A changed this year from last year was the bunkering. Last year I thought it was a bit silly how they flattened out each bunker,” Scheffler said. “The bunkers are still a penalty enough when the ball isn’t up against the lip. It was a bit of luck whether or not your ball would bury into the face because you have a flat bunker and a wall that’s going to go right into it.”

One of the things Scheffler has spent time working on is his ability to control the trajectory and spin of his shots into the wind. It’s something he has had practice at growing up and living in Texas, but the Scottish turf is another variable added to the ball-striking equation of links golf.

“The ball spins a touch more off this turf,” he said. “It was getting used to how much the ball will actually fly into the wind because when it blows that hard at home, let’s say typically when it does it’s a bit warmer.

“But with the ball being spinnier off the turf, if I tried to hit the shot that I did at home, it would almost spin even more off the turf and then go even shorter. So I had to learn to adjust and shallow out a little bit and hit it low without as much spin.”

He has six victories this season, the first player since Woods to do so on the PGA Tour. With a seventh win, it would further stake his claim on one of the greatest PGA Tour seasons of all-time.

In 1962, Arnold Palmer came to the Open Championship at Troon with six wins on the season. He left with seven and the Claret Jug.

“I love the history of the game, and there’s certain things that I know and certain things that I don’t. That was something that for some reason I just never stumbled across,” Scheffler said. “So I had no idea that that was a thing.”

And with another strong performance this week, it will just be another piece of history Scheffler has etched his name into from his spectacular season.

Scheffler is once again the betting favorite, coming in with odds of +550. Rory McIlroy has the 2nd-best odds at +800, the only other player in the field under +1000. The reigning Champion Golfer of the Year, Brian Harman , is +6600 to defend his title and retain the Claret Jug.

Royal Troon is a traditional links-style course with strategically placed pot bunkers and mounding fairways that lead to plenty of rollout off the tee. The greens are smaller than other courses on the Open rota, putting an added emphasis on approach accuracy and scrambling ability. It's a par 71 and 7,385 yards long, 195 yards longer than it played in 2016. With the course being on the coast, wind is sure to have a significant impact on the playing conditions, too.

Open Championship – Expert picks

Odds provided by BetMGM Sportsbook ; access USA TODAY Sports Scores and Sports Betting Odds hub for a full list. Lines last updated Monday at 7:20 p.m. ET.

Rory McIlroy (+800)

McIlroy is going to win another major at some point ... right? This week feels like a golden opportunity for him to bounce back from the U.S. Open heartbreak at Pinehurst at a course that should suit him well. He just needs to figure out how to close on Sunday and kick the putter into gear in the final round.

Collin Morikawa (+1600)

As due as McIlroy is for a win, so is Morikawa. His worst finish in his last 9 individual events is a T-16 at the Wells Fargo in May. He has 6 top-10 finishes in that span and 5 top-5s, which is incredible considering he didn't manage to secure a win. With Royal Troon being more of a positioning course rather than a bomber's track, it should suit Morikawa and his accuracy well.

Viktor Hovland (+3300)

Hovland seems to have gotten back on track despite falling down the leaderboard Sunday in the Scottish Open and he's always been a strong links player. He's finished 12th, 4th and 13th in 3 career Open Championship starts, so his track record in this tournament is excellent.

Open Championship picks – Contenders

Tom kim (+4000).

Kim was a co-runner-up to Harman last year, albeit 6 shots behind the champion. He's been very good in links tournaments before, including the Scottish Open where he just finished 15th. His play in the last month has been impressive, too, highlighted by a runner-up to Scheffler at the Travelers Championship.

Tony Finau (+4500)

Finau just seems tailor-made for the Open Championship. He's a terrific ball striker and putting isn't as critical on these links-style courses, which has led to some impressive finishes in the Open before. Prior to missing the cut last year, he finished 28th or better in 6 consecutive starts, including a 3rd-place showing in 2019.

Aaron Rai (+5500)

Rai is playing some outstanding golf at the moment, finishing in the top 20 in 5 straight starts – a stretch that includes the U.S. Open (T-19) and Genesis Scottish Open (T-4). His record in links events is strong, too, finishing 19th in the Open in 2021.

Louis Oosthuizen (+5500)

At one point, Oosthuizen was one of the best major players in the world and he's finished runner-up or better in all 4 majors during his career, winning the Open in 2010. A move to LIV Golf has taken the spotlight off of him, but Royal Troon fits his game well because it's a shorter links course. He has 5 top-10s in 11 starts on LIV this season, too.

Open Championship picks – Long shots

Alex noren (+8000).

Noren cooled off with consecutive missed cuts at the U.S. Open and Rocket Mortgage Classic but he got back on track last week in the Scottish Open where he tied for 10th. He has 11 top-25s in 17 starts this season and has 4 top-25s in his last 5 Open Championship starts – a nice combination of recent form and event history.

Dean Burmester (+12500)

Burmester, another LIV player, finished 12th in the PGA Championship and made the cut at the U.S. Open, his only 2 major starts this year. He has a win and 2 other top-5s on LIV this season and finished 11th in the Open 2 years ago.

Harry Hall chips in for birdie from 45 feet on the 3rd playoff hole to win the ISCO Championship

  • Copy Link copied

NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Harry Hall chipped in for birdie from 45 feet on the third hole of a playoff Sunday to win the ISCO Championship for his first PGA Tour title, just days before the birth of his first child.

“Due date’s Friday. She’s scheduled to induce on Tuesday just because I was at a point in the FedEx Cup where I kind of needed to play more,” Hall said about wife Jordan. “She would do anything for me. She’s a star and, hopefully, she can do whatever she wants now. I might not play next week. I probably won’t.”

The 26-year-old Englishman closed with a 3-under 69 to get into the playoff with Matt NeSmith, Pierceson Coody, Zac Blair and Rico Hoey — also all seeking their first tour victory. They finished at 22-under 266 on Keene Trace’s Champions Course in the event co-sanctioned by the European tour.

“This is an opposite-field event, but it’s still a quality field, still great players from Europe, still great players from the U.S.,” Hall said. “Just to win any event’s really tough.”

Hall scrambled for par on the par-4 18th on the first extra hole, driving well left into long grass, hitting into the front greenside bunker and blasting out to a foot. He stayed alive when NeSmith’s 8-foot birdie try slid by to the right.

“I grew up at West Cornwall Golf Club, which is basically on the beach back in Cornwall, in England,” Hall said. “We didn’t really have a driving range, all we had was a chipping green and 18 holes of golf, so I spent my life in the sand. I was really comfortable with that.”

On the next trip down 18 in the playoff, Hall, NeSmith and Coody all missed birdie putts, with NeSmith’s attempt the closest at 12 feet.

“I had two great opportunities on 18, that’s all I can ask for,” NeSmith said. “I hit two pretty good putts, just little misreads.”

Hall ended it on the 209-yard, par-3 ninth. Hitting first after all three went long into the rough, the 6-foot-4 former UNLV player got his chip from the right side to fall before NeSmith and Coody missed their attempts from behind the hole.

“Before I chipped that, I was thinking, `Phil Rowe would love for me to win a PGA Tour event by chipping it in,’” said Hall, who jumped to 79th in the FedEx Cup standings. “He was my coach in college. Just walking up to that chip I was thinking about him.”

NeSmith and Blair each shot 64, playing in back-to-back groups about two hours in front of the final pairing. Blair said he was 40 minutes down the road before turning around.

“We were like halfway to Cincinnati,” Blair said. “We were watching the coverage and kind of figured we better turn around.”

Coody, the leader after each of the first three rounds, closed with a 70. He made a 12-foot birdie putt on 18 to get into the playoff.

Hoey took a one-stroke lead into the final hole of regulation, but made a bogey after his wedge approach bounced over the green and into rocks along the bank of a pond. He shot 69.

“It kind of sucks on 18, but I hit a great shot, hit a great tee ball and hit a great second shot,” Hoey said. “Adrenaline’s pumping. I’ve never really been in that situation where it like comes down to it.”

Neal Shipley closed with a 70 to tie for for sixth at 20 under in his third PGA Tour start as a professional. He was the low amateur at the Masters and U.S. Open.

S.Y. Noh (65), Ben Taylor (65) and Sam Bairstow (70) also were 20 under.

Luke Clanton tied for 37th at 13 under after a 71. A week ago, the Florida State sophomore tied for second in the John Deere Classic to become the first amateur since 1958 to finish in the top 10 in consecutive PGA Tour-sanctioned starts.
