40. Peninsula (North) ↓6
Highest ranking – 25 (2004/’10)
Due to undergo alterations later this year, the North Course at Peninsula will likely be an entirely new layout come the 2018 rankings. The South Course is currently under the knife and was not considered for the Top 100 this year. South occupies far less interesting terrain than the North, which is beautifully undulating and more intimately routed. Firmer Sandbelt greens and subtle refinements to a handful of holes would lift this course significantly. In some ways, the test for Peninsula will be whether a club flush with cash has the self-control necessary to resist making gratuitous change.
