1. How many courses have you played?   565


2. How many states/countries does that cover? 3 states and 41 countries


3. Do you collect anything from each course you visit? I buy yardage books and a logoball if they have that.

I have a plan to drive around the coast of Euroe and play every course I see :) Hopefully I'll start that in 2016...

Does anyone know about a website where you can "collect" your Courses and keep track of how many you've played online?

I know about a Swedish one but that's in Swedish and not that good(a lot of mistakes...).

Appreciate any info!

Cheers

I've played 14 different courses this year.  Most of my golf has been local except for an occasional trip to Northern Michigan.

I've only played like 30 courses in my life, and a nice chunk of those were from high school golf season. They are mostly from Pennsylvania, with the remaining few being in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. I'm very jealous of the people with hundreds of different courses under their belts. I generally do not collect anything from these courses.

I counted it up the other day and I have played 37 different courses (I added 2 new ones over this past weekend) which consist of 34 throughout Michigan, 1 in Colorado (Eisenhower Course at Air Force Academy), 1 in Hawaii (Waiehu Golf Course), and 1 in South Carolina (Walker Course at Clemson). I orginally started out collecting logo balls from each course I played at but I ran into a few courses that didn't sell them so I stopped doing that.

Probably something like 50-60 different courses so far. I have about 35 in Ohio alone! :-D

This will be mostly estimates, since I've played for 40+ years but this should be reasonably accrurate:

Michigan - at least 50 courses

Texas - nearly 30 courses

Calif - 4

NC - 9

Other - 5

So right around 100

I will pick up a hat, shirt or ball marker from a course I really like, but not something from every course. I have a collection of scorecards & yardage books, but mostly they are stuck in a side pocket of my bag.

Players play, tough players win!

I've only played 20 at the most. I look to play at least 5 courses other than my home course every year though

1. Played my first full 18 holes in summer of 1964, so I've lost track.

2. Places I have played:

* Twelve States: Missouri, Illinois, California, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Utah (en route to CA, second time), Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas, Nebraska.

* Countries: Japan (Okinawa), Taiwan, Germany, Italy, Sicily (locals say they're not really Italians), Belgium.

3. Collectibles: Score cards, and more recently yardage books. I especially like having cards from different eras, both for graphics and to see how course was altered. I have cards from three different eras for several St. Louis area courses and CCs. If I play a course twice, I will sometimes bring a camera the second round and take pictures of some of the more interesting holes, or shots. (I once wanted to build golf courses, and wanted to collect interesting ideas.)

Focus, connect and follow through!

I have played more, different courses than I ever thought of counting. I do know I have played in 41 different states, and 3 foreign countries. I don't know, but somewhere around 100-130 different courses would be a good guess I suppose. Most famous courses I have played would be Pebble Beach, and the Old Course in St Andrews, Scotland.  Bandon Dunes and Spyglass are a couple of favorites.

Now days, I hang out on the west coast, and desert southwest golf courses. I also visit the Ft Worth Texas area from time to time.

Hey, I've played 2 outta those 3. Battleground and Glenbrook. I used to live in Clear Lake and Galveston. Being the geek that I am, I made a Google Map of the courses I've played.

Some of the more interesting ones are: Murcar Golf Links, Aberdeen, Scotland Kaohsiung Golf & Country Club, Taiwan Congressional Country Club, Bethesda, MD Prince Course at Princeville, Kauai Blue Course, Doral, FL

Try it again? I just changed the permissions, so it ought to be open. BTW, I remembered another course, so I'm up to 40. https://mapsengine.google.com/map/viewer?mid=zTKHU2J82KpQ.kZQozsLxn7HA

    • My boss, out of the blue yesterday, asked me if it ever gets too hot for me to play. I've played in 112* in Phoenix before. Fairly frequently play in mid-90s in NY. Those days are worse than the 112 in Phoenix. I said no. But I'll play in anything. I've played in sleet, snow, hail (one time it hailed on us while blowing a steady 45mph gusting to 55mph - as verified by an anemometer in the clubhouse), torrential rain, high winds, cold, hot, you name it.  Lightning will get me off the golf course though. I'm not an idiot (well, not that much of one anyway).
    • I'm an all weather golfer. Luckily in my part of the Bay Area, it never get's much hotter than mid-70s, and the only humidity fog, so I don't have to deal with hot and humid weather. Most of the year I only have time to play once a week, and it's my weekly psychological break from the daily experience of work/parenthood so I hate to miss it. The only thing that really gives me pause is high winds, because my home course has tons of trees, and quite a few are diseased/dying. Often times when I am out playing and the weather is really shitty I will momentarily question my decision to play, but I rarely regret it.
    • I can't really vote. I'll play in 50° if it's even a little sunny and not pouring. I'll play in 90°. I generally won't play when it's pouring, ridiculously windy, or > 100° or below about 40°.
