GREENVILLE, N.C. (Stacker.com) — Great golf courses are judged as such due in large part to three major factors: greens, hazards, and the properties themselves.

Stacker compiled a list of the highest golf courses in North Carolina on Tripadvisor. These courses feature a host of attractive features, a sense of exclusivity and luxury, and challenging routing for even the most competitive golfers. Keep reading to see if any of your favorite home-state courses made the list—and perhaps to make a bucket list for courses you’ve yet to try.
