Among the criteria used by Golfweek’s panel of course raters include:
· Ease and intimacy of routing – The extent to which the sequence of holes follows natural contours and unfolds in an unforced manner.
· Variety and memorability of par 3s, 4s and 5s – Different clubs hit; extent to which the angles of play create interesting and varied playing options; and extent to which holes offer variety of options from the tee and on the second shot.
· Basic quality of conditioning – Variety of playing textures; extent of turf coverage; consistency and quality of bunker sand.
