We’re number 2—and number 8—of the state’s best golf courses. Pinehurst No. 2 is number 1, the best golf course in North Carolina, according to the N.C. Golf Panel, who recently released its 2012 rankings. 100-year old Pinehurst #2 has held since the panel's #1 position since the ranking’s debut in 1995. Two High Country courses are ranked in the top 10; second on the golf panel list for the third straight year is Grandfather Golf & Country Club in Linville, followed by Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, which will host its annual PGA Tour event, the Wells Fargo Championship, next week. The rest of the top 10 included the Elk River in Banner Elk at number at eighth. The top 100 courses are determined by a scoring system where panelists consider factors such as conditioning, routing, design, strategy, memorability and fairness.
