The “50 Greatest” list was compiled by a team of GOLF Magazine Top 100 panelists in celebration of the publications 50th Anniversary.
KemperSports had numerous courses to on the list, including Pacific Dunes (No. 2), Bandon Dunes (No. 12) and Bandon Trails (No. 33).
“This recognition from GOLF magazine is a tribute to architect Robert Trent Jones Jr., superintendent David Wienecke and others who work so hard to make Chambers Bay worthy of USGA Championships,” said Pierce County Executive Pat McCarthy.
