Also recognized in the contest were third-place Ferry Point, the soon-to-be open public championship layout in The Bronx, and competition finalist Nicklaus Club Beijing, the Golden Bear's turnkey redesign project in China.

Quivira Golf Club is Nicklaus Design's sixth course in Los Cabos and its 23rd course in Mexico.
