The Golfers’ Choice rankings have been created for 15 countries in total. The rankings are 100% based on reviews and ratings given by actual golfers, which make them the most transparent rankings in the world of golf. The Best 18-Holes Golf Clubs category is the main category of the Golfers' Choice Rankings, which means that this ranking is available in all 15 countries.

What does the Best 18-Holes Golf Clubs category entail?

This category represents the overall impression that a golf club has made on golfers. Every time a golfer writes a review about a golf club, they are asked to provide ratings (from 1 to 10) for these 9 different components:

- General Impression
- The Golf Course
- Maintenance
- Facilities
- Clubhouse
- Value for Money
- Hospitality
- Surroundings
- Restaurant

Our algorithm calculates a weighted average based on the scores given for each of these review components. As you might expect, items like General Impression and The Golf Course have more weight than Value for Money for instance, because the budgets of golfers might be very different.
