Scottsdale Ranked Fourth Best Place to Golf

Golf World magazine readers ranked Scottsdale as the 4th best place to golf in the world. Using a 10-point scale, readers were asked to evaluate 38 different destinations based on seven criteria, including quality of golf courses, accessibility of area, hotel accommodations, dining, friendliness, ambiance and overall value. A destination’s score within each of the criteria is the percentage of readers who gave the destination a “top three” score of 8, 9 or 10. Scottsdale’s quality of courses, for example, received a 90.1 score. Listed on top was Charleston/Kiawah Island, South Carolina.  Golf World magazine, with a weekly circulation of 206,634, is edited for the golfer, both amateur and professional.

Methodology for the Destination rankings
In conjunction with voting for the Readers' Choice Awards program, Golf World readers also offered their opinions on various golf destinations areas around the world. Using a 10-point scale, readers were asked to evaluate 38 different destinations based on seven criteria -- quality of golf courses, accessibility of area, hotel accommodations, dining, friendliness, ambiance and overall value. A destination's score within each of the criteria is the percentage of readers who gave the destination a "top three" score of 8, 9 or 10. (For example, the 87.3 score Charleston/Kiawah Island, S.C., received for quality of courses means that 87.3 percent of the readers gave this destination either an 8, 9 or 10 rating for that criteria.) An overall total score for each destination was determined by averaging the scores in all seven categories.
