Hacker's Favorite Winners

During the 2008 - 2010 golf seasons, hundreds of Team Hacker raters visted over 500 courses, drove over 90,000 miles, drank more than 2,800 beers and played over 9,000 holes of golf in search of the top golf courses in five states (MN, WI, IA, ND & SD). After running each course through the 60-factor Hacker Rating System (40-factor for Minnesota) ( read about how we rate ), our raters came to the conclusion that the following courses make up the Hacker's Favorite Award-winning courses for each state.
