Golfweek's Best 2022

28 KemperSports-Supported Courses Named Golfweek’s Best

Twenty-eight (28) KemperSports-managed and partner courses were named to Golfweek’s 2022 Best Courses lists. Among the courses listed across seven different lists, a total of 26 KemperSports-supported courses appear on Golfweek’s 2022 “Best Courses You Can Play State-By-State” list, while 18 are on the “Top 200 U.S. Resort Courses” list, 10 of which rank inside the top 20. In addition, 15 KemperSports-affiliated courses are ranked on Golfweek’s “Top 100 Best Courses You Can Play” list.

The hundreds of members of Golfweek’s course-ratings panel continually evaluate courses and rate them based on 10 criteria on a points basis of 1 through 10. They also file a single, overall rating on each course. Those overall ratings are averaged to produce these rankings. The outlet then ranks the best public, classic, modern, resort and residential courses nationally as well as the best public and private courses by state.

The 28 KemperSports-supported courses featured on Golfweek’s ranking lists include:
