Sheer amount might look impressive but according to the numbers, only around 5% of them are worth it, after spending an hour or more fighting traffic.

Better than nothing, I suppose. I have no idea as I have never been to Chicago.

Okay, I went searching for any other places with 4 courses at 4.0+. I found only 1 new one: Louisville!

I did find several places with 3 courses at 4.0+, such as Buffalo, Tulsa, Peoria, east of Paw Paw (to grab Hagerstown), and north of Santa Fe.

Additionally, and more importantly, I found better zip codes for Augusta Maine and Ann Arbor, bumping them up.

Again, this list is sorted by the 3.75+ column -- although some would argue it should be by the 4.00+ column, just looking at the places with 4 courses at 4.0+.

as it is being pointed out over and over again, zip codes don't even give you accurate info. that coupled with the fact that zip codes are all completely different sizes makes this not very accurate. i also disagree with your list only using courses 3.75 and above... you're leaving out a lot of very good courses that way when considering you're looking at just cities and the surrounding area.

if you place a dot in the middle of Charlotte and go 25 miles out there are 16 courses 3.5+. Ann Arbor only has 8... and you're saying Ann Arbor is better? You're also in no way accounting for the actual review scores for each course. One city could have a bunch right at 3.75 while another could have a bunch up in the high 4's, that's not being accounted for.

Don't be sorry, Ann Arbor is better than anything those NC peeps got (even though I have never played in NC yet), GO BLUE!

Edit: Good to see Tampa finaly getting some love.
