Welcome to Golfweek’s Best Casino Courses in the United States. This list focuses on courses owned and/or operated by casinos, with data pulled from Golfweek‘s massive database of course rankings. (Pictured atop this story is French Lick Resort’s Pete Dye Course in Indiana.)
The hundreds of members of Golfweek‘s course-ratings panel continually evaluate courses and rate them based on our 10 criteria. They also file a single, overall rating on each course. Those overall ratings on each course are averaged to produce a final rating for each that is then used to compile the Golfweek’s Best course rankings.
Each course is listed with its 2020 ranking in parenthesis, an average ranking from all the Golfweek Raters who reviewed it, its location, architect(s) and whether it is a classic courses built before 1960, or a modern courses built in or after 1960.

Rory Sabbatini is representing Slovakia, a nation with only 9,000 registered golfers and 26 golf courses.
Rory Sabbatini celebrated with a fist pump on his birdie putt at 18 for an Olympics 18-hole scoring record of 61 at least three feet before it dropped.
His wife and caddie this week, Martina Stofanikova, was equally elated, lifting her arms to the sky and screaming, “Yes! Yes! Yes!”
What a round it was for the 45-year-old Sabbatini, the oldest competitor in the 60-man field, who was born in South Africa and represented Slovakia, the home country of his wife and stepson, in the Tokyo Summer Games.
Sabbatini, a six-time winner on the PGA Tour but without a triumph since the 2010 Honda Classic unless you count the 2019 Slovak Open, attained Slovakia citizenship via marriage to Stofanikova. Her cousin, Rastislav Antal, the current President of the Slovak Golf Association, suggested to Sabbatini that he could take advantage of a bylaw to Rule 41 of the Olympic Charter that allows athletes of dual citizenship to represent the nation of their choice.
As a result, Sabbatini wore a golf shirt with Slovakia, a nation with only 9,000 registered golfers and 26 courses, printed in large red lettering on the back of his shirt.

Sabbatini paired with Trevor Immelman to win the 2003 World Cup for South Africa and his shift in loyalty has been ridiculed on social media channels, most notably by the Shotgun Start Podcast, who dubbed him “the boy from Bratislava.” Sabbatini shrugged off any criticism and explained representing Slovakia as his way of doing his part to grow the game.
“The whole principle about me getting my Slovak citizenship and representing Slovakia is to try and generate interest among the junior golfers and to create future generations of Slovak golfers,” he explained earlier this week.
Sabbatini arrived early in Japan and stayed in the Olympic Village, and tabbed the experience “fabulous.”
“It’s been a great environment to be around all the Slovak athletes and the Olympic team and they have been very hospitable and welcoming and we have had a lot of fun in the team room,” he said on Friday. “Hopefully I’ll give them something to cheer about this weekend and inspire a few new golfers and maybe some desire to be future Olympians in the young girls and boys in Slovakia.”
According to Golf.com, after the Games, Sabbatini is flying to Slovakia, where he is scheduled to visit Trnaya Golf Club, about a 30-minute drive north of the capital city of Bratislava.
He’ll be able to recount arguably the round of his career. Trailing by seven strokes to start the final round, he made 10 birdies and an eagle to offset two bogeys in shooting 10-under 61 at the East Course at Kasumigaseki Country Club, in Saitama, Japan, about 35 miles northwest of downtown Tokyo. Sabbatini is the clubhouse leader at 17-under 267.

THIS WEEK IN LATIN AMERICA GUATEMALA: The firing of an anti-corruption prosecutor has sparked an angry reaction from civil society and demands for the resignations of President Alejandro Giammattei and Attorney General María Consuelo Porras. Porras came under fire last month Juan Francisco Sandoval, a special prosecutor appointed to support the CICIG, an international body set up to investigate corruption in Guatemala. After the CICIG was disbanded in 2019 by President Jimmy Morales, Sandoval’s office took over many of the international body’s investigations. Porras’ was that the latter had refused to follow instructions and had interfered with the functioning of her office. In a...
Firearms experts say it is rare for someone to be killed from a prop gun while filming a movie or TV show as a weapons master or armourer is mandated to be on set to ensure everyone's safety, in addition to providing rigorous training and gun handling to actors beforehand. New Mexico police said Wednesday that actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun on the set of Western film "Rust," killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza. Charles Taylor, head armourer of Movie Armaments Group Canada, called the news "shocking."READ MORE: "This is not something that you would expect for the amount of safety, and the protocols that we have with all master armours on movie sets," Taylor told CTV News Channel on Friday.When filming...
PITTSBURGH—The mood within the Maple Leafs is not good.It’s far from good after a disinterested squad lost to an injury-riddled Pittsburgh Penguins lineup in embarrassing fashion, 7-1 at PPG Paints Arena.“The mood ain’t great,” said defenceman Jake Muzzin. “When you lose like that is not a good mood. But it’s early in the season. It’s a test for us. And let’s see how we respond.“You learn from it. You understand it. It’s very hard to win in this league and we’re going to have to work a lot harder to win.”The Leafs continue to have trouble scoring. Coach Sheldon Keefe admitted he was down on the top power-play unit. He had also been combative with the media after Friday’s loss when — fairly — asked about a player whose ice time had dwindled, only to be told...
