List Considers All Major Rankings in Compiling List Where Golf and Golf Living Are No. 1

Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts, UNITED STATES

NEWTOWN, CT--(Marketwire - December 7, 2010) - GolfCourseHome.net and the Golf Course Home® Network announces today its Third Annual "Best of the Best" golf community rankings -- the Network's compendium of rankings that takes into account all major media rankings of golf courses and golf communities for this year.

GolfCourseHome Editors arrive at their rankings by studying and compiling all of the year's prominent magazine ranking and rating lists which range from Best in State to Best Residential, from Best Public to Best Private to Best Classic, from Best Modern to Top 100 to Top 50 and beyond.

"There are a ton of rankings lists out there," says GolfCourseHome Network Publisher David Lott, "and it's easy to get lost in the deluge. But out of all those rankings, the best rise to the top simply because of the frequency in which they appear on list after list. We've identified those superior communities for our readers. They are, indeed, the best of the best."

Topping the list for the third year in a row is Reynolds Plantation, GA, which captured 17 major magazine awards; four of the Top 10 are new to the list while six communities are repeat winners.
