Best New Private Course of 2018

No. 39 among America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses

Best Course Built This Decade (2010-2019)

Congaree (United States)

Set in the scenic Lowcountry of South Carolina, Congaree is one of America’s most celebrated golf clubs. Legendary architect Tom Fazio designed the course to seamlessly embrace the natural surroundings of the historic 18th-century estate on which it was built. Often compared to the heathland courses of the United Kingdom or the Sandbelt courses of Australia, Congaree was constructed to test the best players in the world.

Archerfield Links (International)

The 2023 International edition of CGGI will be hosted at the historic Archerfield Links along Scotland’s North Sea Coast. Archerfield is a challenging expression of a traditional Scottish links course with sweeping fairways, deep, menacing bunkers and undulating dunes bordering the fairways.

Congaree Cup

Congaree, one of the best new courses in America, plays host to the Congaree Cup, a signature tournament that culminates the students’ experience at CGGI.
