KEY TO SYMBOLS
(2015-'16 ranking in parentheses)
 America's 100 Greatest Course
≈ America's Second 100 Greatest
^ America's 100 Greatest Public Course
★ Other public-access course

Some courses are ranked in Best in State but did not receive enough ballots to be considered for national lists.

America's 100 Greatest & America's Second 100 Greatest requires a minimum of 45 evaluations accumulated within 8 years, 100 Greatest Public 25 evaluations and Best in State 10 ballots. While a few highly ranked state courses do have a higher score than 100 Greatest, Second 100 Greatest or 100 Greatest Public courses within that state, and are listed above them, they will not appear on a national ranking until achieving the qualifying ballots.

What courses have you played?   Do you agree with the list?    The only course on the list I've played is "The Bear" and it was many years ago.

Only 5 and most were quite some time ago (like Oakland Hills - South).  I need to get out and visit some of the "list" that are public.

As to whether the list is "accurate", every course listed has made some list that I have seen.  Ultimately, it is extremely subjective and for that reason I really dislike these types of lists,

The Crown is in Traverse City, Pinecroft and Champion Hills are both in Beulah/ Honer Michigan...both owned by the same people. I played pinecroft a few weeks ago...it is a tuff coarse...the greens were fast and hilly...tuff pin locations.. But loved it! 

Crystal lake golf is another coarse close to Pinecroft...with in a few miles...and plays similar to Pinecroft but a little slower greens....hilly greens
