This is the second update over twelve years. I'm now over 900 courses in 48 U.S. States and 13 countries. I've photographed almost 600 courses and now have 26,000 golf course photos on my Flickr page 

I just saw these posts which are just a few months shy of ten years old. I did recently hit 750 courses played. Gorty, you were a fortune teller  I've now played in 42 U.S. states and nine countries.

I have played 136 courses in 11 countries My top 5: 1) Twenty Ten Course, Celtic Manor, 2) Royal Portrush, 3) Rosapenna - Sandy Hills, 4) Portstewart Golf Club 5) Turtle Bay - Palmer Course

I came up with 103, and I'm sure I missed a few. 80% of them in MI. Other states I've played in: Arkansas, Arizona, California,Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Montana, Ohio. No international golf yet.

I've played 72.  2 in Hawaii, 1 in Thailand, 3 in Tennessee, 2 in Chicago area, and TPC Deere Run.  The rest in Wisconsin.

I might be missing one or two, but like you I keep pretty good track and I just created a list in excel just to make sure.  (edit: see... I forgot about my Tennessee trip.  Add 3 more to the list)

I'll be adding Whistling Straits to the list this Thursday. :beer:

I've never been big on keepsake items. Maybe some really unique or sentimental things, but then those can be passed on in some fashion. Regardless, there is no way I could recall each and every course. I can offer locations.

USA - CA, OR, NV, MS, IL, HI

Mexico

Japan

Hong Kong

Singapore

Thailand

Tahiti

Diego Garcia

Dubai

Qatar

India

I think that's all...

I'll create a thread I'm sure.  Here's the forecast for tomorrow.  We tee off at noon.  22mph straight winds and 30mph gusts! :bugout:

1. How many courses have you played? Obviously this can be an estimate if you're not as anal as I am and keep track of this stuff.

2. How many states/countries does that cover?

3. Do you collect anything from each course you visit?

1. Roughly 50.  See 3.

2. 3 states (Oregon, CA, NV), USA only.

3. Scorecard.  If I count all the different score cards I collected, I will know exactly how many different courses I played.

Here's my pics thread:

Truly an amazing experience.  I don't know how anyone could make this trip and leave feeling anything but fulfilled at the end of the day.  Worth every penny.

I started to make a list (spreadsheet) of the courses that I've played since I started playing golf in 1965.  I am now 79, so that results in a period of 50 years of golf. So, far I have a total of 247 courses listed on a spreadsheet and I am still working on my memory, logo balls, and golf cards that I've accumulated through the years.

As a sales and marketing person most of my working days, I was fortunate enough to travel all over the United States and some countries abroad, including Scotland.

If  anyone is interested, I can attach a copy of the Spreadsheet that list the courses by State and Town.  (There is no way i could remember the dates of each course).  For most of my golfing days, I was a single digit handicap (lowest was 4 for short period) averaging about 7 for many years.  Now, almost 80 Y.O.A., my game has deteriated (as it does when you get older), but I still love the game and try to play a couple of times each week.  Will be interesting to share some golf experiences with others.  It is a great sport!!!!!

I'm going to estimate about 200 different courses. I've played 100 courses in the Myrtle Beach area (SC and NC). Other states - NY, Florida, Vermont, Michigan, Ohio, Nevada, Connecticut Others: Cancun Mexico, Playa del Carmen Mexico I'm sure as I sit and think about this, my states or countries played in will grow. I think I'll start a list.

1. Estimate: 75 - 80.

2. Virginia - About 35

Michigan - 15

South Carolina - 15

North Carolina; 8,

Florida - 1,

Pennsylvania - 1

Wisconsin - 1

Texas - 1

3. Maybe 2-3 courses. Not a big collector.

For the last two years I am on a mission to go out and play in different US states as much as possible, so am always looking to steal mini trips here and there. Anybody needs a playing partner and I can swing it, I will try by best.

As near as I can figure, its about 95. In over 30 years of playing, I'm sure I'm forgetting some courses. The majority of these are in Oklahoma, but I've also played courses in CA, NV, AZ, TX, MO, AR and KS. Only one international trip where I played...Ottawa, Canada.

I managed to remember a few more courses, so I've fleshed out the list of courses I've played, and after my recent trip to Wisconsin, I'm up to 242 courses, and now have played in 16 states.

    • I’m stuck at 116. Good news I swung my driver like I would while playing and got 105 which is over 10 mph faster than before. 
    • Since the pandemic, the gym I use has either been closed or limited to 25% (now 10%) capacity.  In order to be able to workout, you have to call and make a reservation.  I did that up until November, when it became harder to reserve a workout time.   So I ended up buying a home gym set with weights, cage, and a bench.  Now I workout at home without any hassle of putting on a mask, making reservations, and wiping down the equipments. Anyone else end up buying a home gym set due to Covid?
    • I never understood why people do that, especially on a golf course where a large amount of fertilizer is often used.  Besides, that is just disgusting no matter where one does it.  
    • TLDR; Who here can actually say they did not yell something inappropriate when they got mad?  Granted JT should always presume he is on camera when playing in a tournament.  But let's be serious, I normally don't swear and don't like people who do just for the sake of swearing.  But when I get mad or upset, I will be the first one to say something inappropriate.   IMHO, it's just a human nature. I think JT said it without thinking.  Maybe that's what he says when he is upset.  When I am upset, I say "D@mn it!"  Just my choice of word when upset.   I wouldn't take anything from anyone who is upset.
    • This is what I do. Clearly I need to do something else.
