Golfers’ Choice rankings, most up-to-date and transparent

Every year numerous rankings circulate, announcing the best golf courses in a specific country. The Leadingcourses.com Golfers’ Choice rankings stand out because they are based on reviews written by actual golfers. These reviews can be consulted online at any time. This makes these rankings the most up-to-date, transparent and independent in the golf industry. When a golf club has gathered sufficient reviews they are eligible to qualify for the Golfers’ Choice Rankings. To make sure that ratings stay relevant, reviews are devalued over time. In 2017, Leadingcourses.com rankings have been published in 12 countries, France included.

High reliability

At the end of 2016 more than 350,000 reviews about golf courses (in nine different languages) were available on Leadingcourses.com. All reviews on Leadingcourses.com are verified and manually approved by a dedicated content team. Golfers who review multiple golf clubs receive a higher status and his or her review will therefore have more weight (and thus more impact) in the overall score of a club. To avoid any manipulation of the rating, various checks and balances are in place to track and signal questionable conduct by users.
