Courses ranked in the edition must be available for green fee play most of the year and includes public courses, resort courses and many private clubs which offer access to green fee players. Some clubs, such as Barwon Heads, may require an overnight stay in their accommodation in order to access the course at peak times.

Compared to the 2021 ranking Barwon Heads rose one place in 2022 to number four in terms of ‘Best Conditions’ a testament to the efforts from the course maintenance team, led by Superintendent Craig Molloy. 

The editors of the 29th edition of the publication, recognise the subjective nature of rankings; theirs are weighted 40% on course design, 40% on course conditions and 20% on course aesthetics.
