Golf Digest is a monthly golf magazine published by Cond Nast Publications in the United States. It is a generalist golf publication covering recreational golf and men's and women's competitive golf. Cond Nast Publications also publishes the more specialized Golf for Women, Golf World and Golf World Business. The magazine started in 1950, and was sold to The New York Times Company in 1969. The Times company sold their magazine division to Cond Nast in 2001. Since 1965 Golf Digest has produced biennial rankings of 'America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses'. The courses are voted on by a panel of several hundred golf experts. Although Pine Valley Golf Club has topped the list every year except 2001, when Pebble Beach Golf Links ranked first, it was again outranked on the 2009-10 list - this time by Augusta National Golf Club. The magazine also produces lists of the best new courses, the best golf resorts and the best courses in each U.S. state.
