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 each 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 a diverse group 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.
