Default How many courses have you played that are the highest rated in their state?

Being that I have only played 52 courses, and am still relatively new to the sport, I think it is interesting how many courses I have played that are the highest rated in their state. And while I haven't bagged a ton of courses, I have a good view of what each of these states has the best to offer:

Ohio - Deis Hill
Texas - Selah Ranch (and Shawshank, Lindsey Gold)
Missouri - Waterworks
Illinois - Foundation Park
Indiana - Seviren Lang
Kentucky - Idlewild (and Lincoln Ridge)
Pennsylvania - Deer Lakes and Moraine, 2 and 3 rated courses
West Virginia - Orange Crush and Seth Burton, 3 and 4 rated courses

Kind of the problem with "highest rated" is that its a moving target, and in states like mine, the top rated list looks more like "top rated courses that happen to be in urban areas". The #13 rated course in my state blows away most of the ones on the top 10 list, but is sitting down at that number because of a few pissy reviewers who think 150% of a course's merit relies on it having tee signs.

True. But the question is "highest rated", not "best", and for the sake of the O.P.'s question you're probably stuck with the actual ratings, and threshhold used in the Top 10 list.

In which case, I stick with my answer, by refusing to answer, as the list for my state is garbage. This site needs another worship of bad statistics thread like anyone reading it needs a bout of the flu.

I'm going by a minimum of 9 reviews as new course fads keep popping up:
PA - Tyler (barely makes my personal top 10 in the state of PA, but I digress)
MD - Seneca (Ditto Farms(played) and Turkey Hill are rated higher, but brand new and only have 3 reviews)
DE - Iron Hill
VA - Hawk Hallow
NC - Black Jack
TN - Harmon Hills
NJ - Stafford Woods
WV - Paw Paw

I guess if I have to limit it to top rated, I can only claim Idlewild (KY), because it's clear-cut. I've played Seviren Lang (IN), which is the highest rated there that has more than two reviews. In my home state (OH), Mt. Airy and Handyman Ace Hardware are close to the top, as is Shawshank, in TX. My other 13 states were bagged on expediency over quality, so far!

Is there a list of said courses? Or do I have to look up each state individually.

I'm going to go with nearly most of them, it will probably be easier for me to list the ones I haven't played. I'd like to know how to figure it out with minimal effort.
