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.
The results of the Panel’s Top 50 courses balloting are published first each spring in the April issue of the award-winning Virginia Business magazine, then in various golf and business publications and web outlets, including this site.
The Panel is currently comprised of approximately 50 individuals who maintain a 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. Membership is by invitation only.
