The evaluations of the competing courses were done by over 1,000 people who volunteered. The collection of volunteers included both men and women who played a round of golf, and then rated the course. The assessment and grading of the different courses were based on inputs from seven categories. The overall value of the course was based on shot values, memorability, ambiance, design variety, conditioning, aesthetics, and resistance to scoring. For the course to be eligible to make the list, it has to have had a minimum of 45 evaluations in 8 years.
