We would be kidding ourselves if we believed that, in today’s modern age, “red tees” are only used as championship markers instead of “women’s tees”. Yes, we women have come a long way in making our name in the golf world. However, it is no secret that some courses are designed to be more female-friendly. In light of that, we have decided to feature some courses that Golf Digest Woman has named the best courses in America, for women. According to Golf Digest Woman, these courses were ranked based off of their overall course layout, course conditions, a welcoming atmosphere and amenities. You should also take note that some of these clubs are a part of our association.

Golf Digest Woman’s course raters also took into account a few other outside amenities that supposedly attract female golfers. Factors such as ladies nights, shopping malls and stores and family friendly courses are all outlying factors that females tend to consider when choosing the right course. So, take a look and plan your next vacation with these spots in mind!
