Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Kiawah Island. Three of the most famous places to play golf in the United States, and the only three "19th holes" better than the magnificence at Arcadia Bluffs Golf Club.
Golfweek, part of the USA TODAY Network, on Friday continued its annual "best of" series with the top 10 19th holes in America, and "The patio and Adirondack chairs at Arcadia Bluffs" in Arcadia came in tied for fourth.
Also fourth was "McKee’s Pub and firepit at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort" at the acclaimed golf destination in Bandon, Oregon.
Arcadia Bluffs, whose Bluffs Course again was named the top public-access golf course in Michigan by Golfweek and No. 26 in the country, was founded in 1999 and is about 250 miles northwest of Detroit. It also boasts the acclaimed geometrical South Course one mile down the road, which opened for play in 2018 and ranks sixth in the state and No. 94 among publics in the U.S.
The famed Adirondack chairs at Arcadia Bluffs allow visitors to sit on the lawn overlooking the 18th green, offering unlimited views of 3,100 feet of Lake Michigan shoreline.
Servers take drink and dessert orders from the lawn, so all you have to do is sit back, sip and enjoy the sprawling beauty before you.
"Wonderful post-round atmosphere," rater Chris in Canton wrote the Free Press.
At the glamourous, tasteful lodge and clubhouse — which is open everyday from 6 a.m.-10 p.m. — numerous seating options on patios or indoors also offer comfort and spectacular views of the course and lake. And yes, the food matches the scenery.
More than 400 votes were cast from 800-plus "Golfweek’s Best" raters to determine the top 10 golf course bars and restaurants, which above all else, was based on vibes. Views, food, drink menu and service were all a part of the conversation. But Golfweek wanted to find the best places to relax and hang out after a round.
"Enjoy a sip, the conversation, the golf and the heritage," Golfweek wrote. "It can be difficult to describe what makes one space a better hangout than others, but you know it when you see it. And then you never want to leave."
Forest Dunes in Roscommon also received a plethora of votes, but did not crack the top 10.
The ranking includes seven public-access courses and three private clubs.
1. The Tap Room at Pebble Beach Resort in Pebble Beach, California.
2. The Deuce at Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, North Carolina.
3. The Ryder Cup Bar at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in Kiawah Island, South Carolina.
T4. The patio and Adirondack chairs at Arcadia Bluffs in Arcadia.
T4. McKee’s Pub and firepit at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Bandon, Oregon.
T6. The first-tee patio at Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, Pennsylvania.
T6. The porch at Secession Golf Club in Beaufort, South Carolina.
T6. Sticks at Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach, California.
T6. The patio and Heckle Deck at Sweetens Cove in South Pittsburg, Tennessee.
T6. Ben’s Porch at Sand Hills Golf Club in Mullen, Nebraska.

Welcome to the Golfweek’s Best 2022 list of the Top 200 Modern Courses built in or after 1960 in the United States.
Each year we publish many lists, with this Top 200 Modern Courses list among the premium offerings. Also extremely popular and significant are the lists for Top 200 Classic Courses, the Best Courses You Can Play State by State and Best Private Courses State by State.
The hundreds of members of our course-ratings panel continually evaluate courses and rate them based on 10 criteria on a points basis of 1 through 10. They also file a single, overall rating on each course. Those overall ratings are averaged to produce these rankings. The top handful of courses in the world have an average rating of above 9, while many excellent layouts fall into the high-6 to the 8 range.
To ensure these lists are up-to-date, Golfweek’s Best in recent years has altered how the individual ratings are compiled into the rankings. Only ratings from rounds played in the past 10 years are included in the compilations. This helps ensure that any course in the rankings still measures up.
Courses also must have a minimum of 25 votes to qualify for the Top 200 Modern or the Top 200 Classic. Other Golfweek’s Best lists, such as Best Courses You Can Play or Best Private, do not require as many votes. This makes it possible that a course can show up on other lists but not on the premium Top 200 lists.
Each course is listed with its average rating next to the name, the location, the year it opened and the designers. The list also notes in parenthesis next to the name of each course where that course ranked in 2021. Also included with many courses are links to recent stories about that layout.
After the designers are several designations that note what type of facility it is:
• p: private • d: daily fee • r: resort course • t: tour course • u: university • m: municipal • re: real estate • c: casino
* Indicates new to or returning to this list.
Editor’s note: The 2022 Golfweek’s Best Classic Courses list for the top 200 layouts built before 1960 in the U.S. was posted Wednesday, May 25. The Best Courses You Can Play lists and the Best Private Courses lists will follow over the next two weeks.

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. — Not chasing lens material in the vitreous with a phaco probe, not attempting to use irrigation and not using a lens loop when dealing with a capsule rupture were some of the pearls shared in a presentation here.
Steve Charles, MD, offered these and other lessons on what to do and what not to do when performing vitrectomy for capsular rupture during cataract surgery in a presentation at Kiawah Eye.
“Lens material has never damaged a retina — surgeons damage retinas,” he said. He advised against chasing after nuclear material in the vitreous.
“Forget about the idea that lens material is going to damage the retina,” he said.
Instead, Charles advocated for using viscoelastic to create a barrier between the capsular defect and the vitreous body.
For lens material dropped into the vitreous, the first actions should be to pause, relax and plan the approach.
“Not all dislocated lens material needs surgery. Cortex can absorb,” he said.
He said he prefers a pars plana posterior vitrectomy approach for removing lens material from the vitreous. The surgeon should have regular experience performing pars plana vitrectomy, and the essential tools include a wide-angle viewing system, an endoilluminator, a vitrector with the highest cutting rate available, at least 5,000 cpm, and a fragmenter instead of a phaco probe. There needs to be good visibility with a clear central cornea and reasonable dilation. Also, he said the phaco wound needs to be sutured to prevent iris prolapse and other issues.
“It is better to infuse through a side port. If you need to add one, always infuse to the side port and never through the phaco wound. This is very important,” Charles said.
He said it is necessary to remove all vitreous before removing any lens material.
In performing anterior vitrectomy, Charles said to never use a cellulose sponge to remove or test any vitreous.
“Lifting to cut and wicking cause marked vitreoretinal traction,” he said.
He also said that the infusion bottle should be set to a low height for lower pressure.
“Do not sweep the wound. This causes marked instantaneous peripheral retinal traction,” he said.
Charles recommended triamcinolone particulate marking.
Cutting requirements are the same for anterior vitrectomy as posterior vitrectomy, and surgeons should use the highest cutting rate possible.
As for the wound construction in pars plana vitrectomy, the best option is a straight-in, wound-sutured construction.

On Saturday, May 21, volunteers gathered at Mingo Point to conduct a litter sweep on Kiawah Island. This sweep was the fifth in a new effort by the Kiawah Conservancy to help maintain clean and safe habitats for wildlife in and around Kiawah. The Conservancy’s litter sweeps are held on the third Saturday of every month from 9-11 a.m.
They target high traffic areas like the Kiawah Island Parkway, Beachwalker Park, The Sanctuary, and The Sandcastle. The volunteers were split into four small groups and focused their efforts on the Kiawah Island Parkway between Mingo Point and Freshfields Village. The group of seven collected 1,101 pieces of litter. Since the litter sweeps’ inception in January, volunteers have collected and logged more than 6,800 pieces of litter.
The most abundant litter items are cigarette butts with 323 collected and 2,071 collected over all five sweeps. The high quantity of litter speaks to a larger littering problem than the Conservancy was anticipating. The South Carolina Aquarium is the Conservancy’s partner in this ecosystem clean up effort. Aquarium representatives have helped run each sweep and provided bags, extended grabbers, and visibility vests for volunteers working close to the roads. The Aquarium also helps run litter sweeps in other areas around Charleston such as Folly Beach and the Isle of Palms. At each location, the different types of litter are logged and uploaded to the South Carolina Aquarium’s Citizen Science App (and recorded on anecdata. com) to inform data driven solutions to large-scale pollution. The Kiawah Conservancy is fortunate to have the South Carolina Aquarium as our partner in this effort.
The partnership allows us to keep Kiawah clean and support research efforts at the same time. However, the significance of the partnership can still be enhanced by increased volunteer activity. Over the past five litter sweeps, there has been an average of seven volunteers. These small volunteer groups have proven tenacious and efficient, but they are still limited to certain areas due to their overall low numbers. With more volunteers, the Conservancy and Aquarium would be far more successful in improving the quality of the ecosystems in and around Kiawah Island.
Therefore, the Kiawah Conservancy urges people to come out to the next litter sweep on June 18 and help keep Kiawah clean. The sweep will begin at 9 a.m. at Mingo Point and participants will be eligible for a raffle prize when the sweep ends.
