Florida is arguably the first state many people think of when asked about golf. Sunshine year-round, great temperatures and countless high-level courses.

That’s why its position on this list is a bit shocking.

The United States Golf Association has released its handicap index rankings list, including all states and territories (Puerto Rico, Washington D.C.).

On top of Florida, there are a few surprises on this list including Arizona at No. 44. On the flip side, it’s easy to see why cold-weather states like Alaska and Maine are in the bottom 10.

Here’s a full look at the USGA’s handicap index rankings for all states and territories.
