According to the latest power rankings, fall golf and football knows no rival. But what’s the best NFL city for public golf?
In order to answer the question, we must first be clear on a few particulars. There are several teams with broad-based geographical references, and for the purpose of this exercise, need definition.
- New England Patriots = Boston
- New York Jets and Giants = Manhattan
- San Francisco = San Francisco, not Santa Clara, which is the address of Levi’s Stadium
- Carolina Panthers = Charlotte, NC
- Phoenix = Phoenix and Scottsdale
It should also be noted, that in order to establish this ranking, I considered all public courses within a one-hour drive of the city center, or, in some cases, major airports. A mix of prestige—rich history and/or frequent host of major events—as well as perceived value for locals, were key ingredients to my criteria. With that being said, I grant 49ers’ fans (guilty!) a small slice of salvation in yet another season of mediocrity.
