Greenskeeper.org Best Playing Condition Awards for 2016
This year we have expanded our awards to 11 regions! @GreenskeeperOrg #BestPlayingCondition #Golf #Awards for #2016 #Breaking
We’ve waited all year for the results , and the results are in. Greenskeeper.org proudly presents it’s Best Playing Conditions Awards for 2016.
Not to be confused with our other award “Worth the Green Fee,” “Best Playing Conditions” is awarded to golf courses open to the public listed on Greenskeeper.org that stand out above the rest with our site users. These golf courses distinguish themselves by providing consistent, exceptional playing conditions.
The job of the superintendent is the life blood of the golf course industry and most important contributing factor to enjoying a golf experience. It takes enormous dedication, resources and expertise by a superintendent and their staff to provide excellent turf conditions. A golf course is a living, breathing organism whose health is constantly in flux. Greenskeeper.org’s registered trademark and creed, “Know Before You Go”®, centers on communicating these current playing conditions. The rating system used on Greenskeeper.org is in part created by superintendents. Greenskeeper.org views it’s Best Playing Conditions Awards as it’s highest honors.
How Awards Winners Are Determined
This year we showcase 11 sections — Inland Empire, Los Angeles County, Orange County, Palm Springs Area, San Diego County, Santa Barbara County, Ventura County, Southern California, Central California, Northern California, and Southern Nevada. Golf Course reviews and ratings submitted by our 75,000+ Greenskeeper.org community are tabulated over 12 months. Winners are determined for each area. We provide the list below in no particular order. This is done on purpose. We believe that every golf course that provides exceptional playing conditions to their region should not overshadow other golf courses simply because of their location. We understand the golfing public mostly stay within their geographic boundaries. Knowing where to play in your area is important.
And Now our Winners (in no particular order). . . .
Attention Golf Course Operators
Not happy your golf course isn’t listed on our “Best Playing Condition” List? Do not fret. Think of Greenskeeper.org as your asset to bring golfers through your door. Our core group of avid golfers are “Influencers.” This means other golfers use our opinion to shape their decision where to play their next round of golf. Take advantage of this.
Consider hosting a GK Plays Outing or GK Review Guru Visit which bring our golfers en mass to your golf course for an event, apply for our GK Coupon program or all of these things. You’ll attract our core group. They write responsible, informative and very relevant reviews. And these reviews attract other golfers. Mileage may vary but our programs are very popular and provide pretty stellar results. And we have the numbers to prove it.
