Golf Digest ranked Wisconsin as the best state for public golf on Saturday.

These rankings came from the publication's America's 100 Greatest Public Courses list. The list mentions courses like Whistling Straits in Sheboygan at No. 4 on the list, Erin Hills in Hartford at No. 10, and Sand Valley in Nekoosa at No. 17.

Wisconsin boasts a total of ten courses in the top 100 public courses nationwide, according to Golf Digest.

This ranking came from states that prioritize excellent public access to courses, but lack as many elite private clubs of many other states.

California and Michigan tied for second on the list, with nine courses each in the top 100.
