I save a logo ball from courses I play. I keep my scores on the computer so can tell how many different courses I have played,

1. How many courses have you played?   934 courses and have 880 logo balls (not all courses have logo balls)
2. How many states/countries does that cover? 50 states and 24 countries. This includes North America, South America, Europe, Asia and African continents.
3. Do you collect anything from each course you visit?  a logo ball and my scorecard.

I have played 851 course in all 50 states and have played in 21 countries (U.S.A., Thailand, England, Canada, Bahamas, Slovakia, France, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia, Italy, Croatia, Mexico, Netherlands, U.A.E., Spain, Morocco, Portugal, Vietnam, Japan, and Puerto Rico.

 

Earlier this year I finished my quest when I play Wildhorse Resort in Pendleton, ID.

 

I save a logo ball from each course (if they have them). At present I have 796 balls displayed in 8 100-ball racks.

Jesus, how old are you, 211?

I don't know, but I do have a pencil and a scorecard from every course. image.jpg

So ... that many.

Hi Gunther, FYI I am 73 heading for 74 in early 2017. I am semi-retired and do travel some on business to which I add free time to test out the local courses where ever I am. My score now is 889 logo balls from 943 courses played. I added 3 more countries - Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. I have trips in the works that will add several more in 2017.

My totals pale compared to chipper2 but my best guess is somewhere in the 40-50 range on courses played, the large majority in Texas plus 1 in New Mexico, 1 in Colorado, in Jamaica and the island of St. Thomas. Pretty sure I'm missing some; I keep my scorecard and pencil for each round played.

I haven't visited this site in some time. I see I made post #15 on this thread in 2008. I have now played more than 750 courses. I have logo balls from more than 500 that I've played and have photographed almost 500 courses. Here's a link to some of my golf course photos. Theay are listed alphabetically except for the first few which I most recently photographed.

I have only played about 100 golf courses but I have been lucky to play some of the best. Pebble Beach, St. Andrews, Muirfield, Troon, Seminole, Oakland Hills (both), Harbor Town, Trump National (Doral), World Woods (both), Shadow Creek and I know I'm missing some. That being said, I have enjoyed playing some of the lesser know courses more than the ones that I have mentioned above.

I'd estimate it's in the 40-50 course range, mostly in the Carolinas.  Some of my favorites have been:

Caledonia- Pawleys Island, SC

Thornblade- Greenville, SC

Stono Ferry- Charleston, SC

Rocky River- Concord, NC

The Walker Course- Clemson, SC

Since we started not too long ago

1. many courses have you played?   About 30. We repeat a few favorites quite often
2. How many states/countries does that cover? Mainly in Japan, but occasionally Asia (Malaysia,Thailand)
3. Do you collect anything from each course you visit?  Nothing in particular but a 1-18 hole video if they allow.

I have been playing for over 40 years,  Played in all the provinces except Newfoundland.  Played in Myrtle Beach and the PeeDee Swamp Fox area and have played over 50 courses there. Some are no longer there even lol.  Played in Hawaii on Maui at the Dunes there and I have played in Maine.  I have  played in Washington and in Florida.  But having been an Ontario child of god and and now a relocated New Brunswick senior,  I have these pretty much blanket covered. I used to collect Bag tags. Too noisy on the bags clacking away. If I really like a new course, I will keep a score card.  My calculated totals are up over  300.   No bucket lists any more.  But I will get to Ireland in the next couple of years and play one at least.

Bumping this thread because I went through the exercise of counting up all the courses I can remember ever playing the other day. 

1) 41 Golf Courses in total

2) States include: Texas, Colorado, Montana, California and will be adding Alabama this summer. Countries include: USA, Mexico, Aruba, Scotland

3) The more prestigious courses or courses that mean something special to me I try and find a golf ball with a logo to showcase in my office at home.

I have a spreadsheet that I keep a list of every course I've played. Right now I'm at 303. Hopefully add a few more to that this year. I have played over 100 courses in the US and in England. I've also played in Wales, Scotland, Ireland, France, Portugal, Spain, Canada, Mexico, Australia and Barbados. I'm unlikely to add to my country count in the near future I suspect.

    • PGA2K21 is good. I play it on the PS4. 
    • Day 83 - Spent more time filming swings. It seems I’m correct at A2 or A3, getting both to be what I’m looking for isn’t working. Have more work to do before sending in more swings. 
    • Rule 2 - The Course Notes as follows. These are notes, not a recap or a summary or anything like that. 2.1 - Course Boundaries and Out of Bounds The Committee has to decide where boundaries are. 2.2 - Defined Areas of the Course There are five: general area the teeing area the green penalty area bunker If the ball is in two areas, it's treated as lying in the general area last, or in the order: penalty area, bunker, putting green. 2.3 - Objects or Conditions that can Interfere with Play Just links to other rules for loose impediments, movable obstructions, abnormal course conditions, GUR, temporary water, or immovable obstructions. No relief for boundary objects. 2.4 - No Play Zones Must take relief when ball, stance, area of swing interfered with here can be an ACC or a penalty area
    • Pm back at ya Piz.  This should be fun.  Thank you Adam as well.  We’ll have to keep comparing notes next spring when the weather gets better.  
    • Last lesson of the year today 12/2: Full swing stuff - backswing and tempo were much improved which is what I’ve been working on so happy with that. We discussed the block fade miss caused by open club face. My transition is aggressive which pulls the club face open when the handle of the club starts moving too quickly (or something like that). Quick fix was to have a feel for the club head moving and widening the arc before the handle starts going. Did some work on this at about 75% full speed and then added speed back as I got the hang of it. Putting work - did a putter fitting and when selecting the alignment aid design, I learned that they don’t matter at all for how I aim. Apparently no matter where the target was, I tended to line my aim up around the spatial configuration of the putting area (e.g., aiming parallel to the edge of the putting surface, or a nearby wall). Once I was aware of this behavior and able to consciously overcome it, my initial aim was really good. When I scheduled the fitting with my teacher I had my mind made up on something from the Edel product line, but I tried one of those ridiculous looking LAB putters and it was undeniably good for me, so that’s what I ended up going with.
