In January this year, Golf Australia magazine published its biennial Top-100 Public Access Courses ranking. The judges for that ranking cast votes on the best courses they had played or seen during the previous three years (extended due to COVID-19 restrictions during 2020).

In all, 182 courses across the country received votes from our judging panel with the Top-100 making our final national ranking.

Using the data received from our judges, we will presenting a state-by-state ranking covering all 182 courses. This week, we present the finest layouts in South Australia and the Northern Territory, based on those courses that received votes from our panel.
