Best golf courses: Appalachians

Golf in the Appalachians: We admired the scenic views and challenging layout at Berkshire Valley Golf Course in Jefferson, and found the links style golf experience and rural countryside views of the Ballyowen Golf Club to be extremely enjoyable. Also on our list is the championship course at Hiawatha Landing, and the challenging holes and well-maintained layout at Allentown's Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort.

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.
