Established in 2017, the Virginia Golf Ratings Panel strives to recognize excellence in golf course design and operations through competitive annual rankings that promote the visibility of private, semi-private, public and resort golf facilities in the Commonwealth.
Our annual rankings of Virginia’s best golf courses, announced early in March, have been published in the award-winning Virginia Business magazine and also distributed to various media and web outlets.
The Virginia Golf Ratings Panel is comprised of golf enthusiasts who maintain their primary residence in the Commonwealth. While they have varying degrees of playing ability, they all share a common thread: a knowledge of Virginia golf and golf course design and a passion and appreciation of the game. Panelists can only vote for courses they’ve played, of course. Membership is by invitation only.
