By Gary Baines – 8/20/2021

There are a lot of course rankings lists these days. If you can think of a category — public, private, resort, opened a long time ago or recently, casino, military, campus, residential, worldwide, U.S., by state — it’s probably been done. And the list above probably just scratches the surface. 

But recently added another ranking to the rundown with the debut of the Top 100 Value Courses in the U.S., all which you can play for $150 or less. And, for those who believe that $150 for green fees seems like a pretty hefty chunk of change, the publication adds, “in many cases much less.”
