Little change at the top of the GOLF Magazine Top 100 USA rankings for 2011, and in fact across the list there were fewer significant jumps and falls than in previous years. Pinehurst (No. 2) and LA Country Club (North) both improved thanks to course restoration projects, while Kyle Phillip's work at the California Club of San Francisco has also been rewarded with a debut at number 97 on the list. Of the newcomers, the inclusion of Old Macdonald at 42 and Gozzer Ranch at 70 have certainly strengthened the final result. The return of Caves Valley at 82 is slightly more puzzling, as is the ten place drop of Sebonack down to 63.
