When I ditched my SkyCaddie a few years ago I had 65 courses on it. Add 10 courses I played before I got it and 10 for new courses I've played since, guess I'm up to about 85 courses across about 6 states and 3 or 4 countries.

At least 44 that I can enumerate (just going by memory - I haven't bothered to keep an accurate record over the years) in 8 states.

Hey everyone, I had to really put thought into the question as I've been playing for 47 years now. I calculated about 136 in the US: Virginia - 50, Texas - 18, Maryland - 12, NY - 10, NC - 8, California - 6, Pa. - 5, Nevada - 4, Kansas - 4, Iowa -4, Florida - 4, Utah - 2, Tennessee - 2, WV - 2, Mo. 1, SC 1, Ga. 1, Illinois - 1, and Michigan - 1. And 4 outside the US: VI -1, Bermuda - 2, and Cyprus - 1. Puts me at about 140. To next get to 150 is 10 that I'll make a "bucket list" for and will post them in this forum.

1. 142, including Butler National, Milwaukee CC, Valhalla, Wolf Run, Crooked Stick, Victoria National, French Lick Resort (Dye and Ross), Bellerive CC, St. Louis CC, and Dalhousie.

2. 10 (Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Florida, Iowa, Wisconsin, Arizona)

3. I have an entire room dedicated to golf. It contains pictures, scorecards, towels, pencils, yardage books, etc from every course played. Friends and family, even non-golfers, love it! My goal is to play 1,000 courses, and a Top 213 courses list that I've compiled from the Golf Digest, Golf, and Golfweek Top 100 Lists.

Never really thought about it, but it has to be in excess of 100. That's one of the things we like to do is play a lot of different courses. There was a guy from Cleveland who put out several editions of the "Cleveland Golfer's Bible", describing nearly all the golf courses, public and private, in the Cleveland, Akron, Canton area. There's an alphabetized list in the back of the book, and I started checking courses off as I played them. Lots of check marks in the book.

Also, services like Golfnow, and Golf 18 Network have been a boon, as has the somewhat unfortunate phenomenon of formerly private courses having to go public, or at least semi-private, in order to survive. True, they might not be in their best shape, but most of them are in quite good condition and some amazingly so. Still, some of them are impressive tracks, and now I can get on them!

I have now played about 900 courses in all 50 states, 6 Canadian Provinces, and 24 countries in North America, South America, Europe, Asia & Africa. My total says 910 courses, but 18 are the same course with  new names. Of the 910 courses I have logo balls from 853 of them.

I've played about 30, all in Ontario (actually, all within about an hour of me). There's a ton of great courses near me that I haven't played and I'm making an effort this year to play a lot more of them.

I like collecting the little pencils with the course's name on them and if I really like the course I'll buy a ball marker or something.
