Golf Digest Best New Course List 2004

As a Golf Digest panelist, I was intrigued by the list that first appeared yesterday. You can find it here —

Interestingly, GD published the actual voting totals for each course. I found this particularly interesting when it came to the Canadian courses, all of which I’ve played. It is still hard to imagine anyone ranking The Rock ahead of Blackhawk, but it shows just how close the voting was.

Best New Canadian
1. The Rock Golf Club, Minett, Ontario 43.441
2. Blackhawk Golf Club 43.204
3. Wildfire Golf Club 43.015
