To get the results, the folks at Surprizeshop created a list of the most well-known golf courses around the world, then ranked them from most- to least- Instagrammed by determining the number of images associated with hashtags correlating to each golf course. While the study showed the majority of the most Instagrammable golf courses were located within the United States and the United Kingdom, a number of other contenders rounding out the top 30 were located in Portugal, Australia, France, Canada, Abu Dhabi, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and South Africa.

Golf has remained a relatively safe and popular activity throughout the pandemic thanks to players’ ability to social distance while outdoors and proactive efforts by golf courses to keep everything clean between rounds. If you do decide to book a golf getaway anytime soon, be sure to follow the health and safety rules and regulations where you’re visiting, wear a mask over your mouth and nose whenever you’re in public and do your best to stay at least six feet from anyone outside your group.
