Solidifying its position as the best public course in the Keystone State, Mystic Rock has ranked in the top two on Golfweek’s prestigious annual list since 2008. “We are extremely honored Golfweek continues to tout Mystic Rock year after year,” says Mike Jones, director of golf and recreation. “A recognition of this stature is a significant achievement for our golf staff and spotlights the unforgettable experience offered at Mystic Rock.”
Golfweek’s ranking panel consists of 675 voters from seven countries who rely on 10 criteria to rate a golf course. They include overall land plan; variety and memorability of golf holes; conditioning and ecology; and the “walk in the park test,” which rates the sense of the course and whether it’s worthy of spending four hours on it. The number of courses per state varies based on course supply, population and level of play. The Golfweek rankings include daily-fee layouts and golf courses accessible via resorts.
