GolfPass Recognizes Thirty KemperSports-Supported Courses

Thirty (30) KemperSports Courses Ranked Among Best Golf Courses Played by Recreational Golfers in 2022

Thirty (30) KemperSports courses have been recognized on a 2023 Golfers’ Choice list, an honor based on GolfPass reviews from recreational golfers nationwide. Relied on by recreational golfers for its user-generated golf course reviews and expert travel content, the ninth edition of the respected lists by NBC Sports Next’s GolfPass include 69 categories generated by more than 315,000 reviews to determine the best golf courses played by recreational golfers in 2022.

KemperSports properties rank among the best in several categories, including best in the nation and best in state, as well as the “best of” categories for most friendly, best course conditions and top short courses. Additionally, 18 of the 30 KemperSports courses were listed in the top 10 of their respective “Best of State” rankings.

Unlike golf course rankings published by industry insiders who have access to golf courses the public may never have the opportunity to play, the Golfers’ Choice lists are totally consumer driven – by recreational golfers, for recreational golfers. Ages, handicaps and budgets of golfers using the website run the gamut, so the millions of reviews accumulated by GolfPass and GolfNow showcase the golf course characteristics that are the most important to avid golfers across the country in any given year.

GolfPass reviewers rate courses based on six subcategories: value, course conditions, course layout, pace of play, staff friendliness and off-course amenities.
