The A List: The A Position Names The Best Golf Resorts in the U.S.

The definitive list of the country’s finest golf playgrounds

(Portland, Ore.) – It’s a question golfers argue over all the time: What is the best golf resort in America? The A Position, the world's leading golf-travel website, has settled the argument once and for all by naming the country’s Top 10 Golf Resorts.

With the PGA Championship about to tee off at Kiawah Island—long regarded as one of the country’s finest resorts—the well traveled and extremely experienced writers at The A Position were polled for their lists of favorites, from which a master list was compiled.

While there was little question about the top choice—Oregon’s Bandon Dunes won handily—it was a close battle for places 2 through 10. The remainder of the list comes from across the country, north to south, east to Midwest, and out to Hawaii.

In voting for and then writing up their personal preferences, the members of The A Position were careful to note that a top golf resort must have more than just great golf. So along with world-class layouts, the list features outstanding restaurants, elegantly comfortable accommodations, and a long list of amenities from spas and skeet shooting to water sports and nature preserves.

The debate is sure to rage on, and readers are invited to submit their own selections. This is a tough list to argue with…but we’re sure you’ll try. Just go see them all first: Doing the research is more than half the fun.
