How Many Courses Have You Played?

This thread is awesome.

I am one of the few golfers in my groups that takes pride on playing different courses and collecting logo balls from each course.  I've only been golfing about 10 years and have 52 courses and about 45 balls.  I also have a few balls from events I played in with its own unique logo.  I do my own personal ranking of the courses and then have printed off pictures in ranked order of the courses I've played.  Pictures and logo balls are all on the walls behind the bar in my basement.

Up until recently I haven't really gone all out in planning my golf around different courses but am starting to this year (golf trip planned this weekend to add a few more courses).  Most things I play in are all at the same courses and rarely move location.  I also don't get to travel for work and don't have a ton or courses around me in the upper midwest.  If any of you that have jobs that have some travel and are hiring give me a shout so I can get my totals up 🙂 

Also, if anyone has a way to get missing logo balls printed or created let me know.  Most companies won't print one with a course's logo due to copyright and some of the courses haven't had a logo ball year after year as I constantly ask hoping they will mail me one.  Figured I could just make my own at home or pay for them to be done.

Just checked my last entry in 2018 and the number was 133. It's now up to 215 somehow. In that time I have played 20 courses in Ireland including Portrush, Ballybunion, Waterville and RCD, 12 in Scottsdale (places like Desert Forest and We Ko Pa), about 10 in Colorado/Nebraska including Sand Hills and Ballyneal, and a bunch of others on a trip to Scotland/Dornoch as well as some new courses here in Oz eg  Kooyonga and R Adelaide.

A while ago I finally sat down and developed a list.  I am at 269 (that I can remember!).  Sadly, with the COVID situation I am not really travelling very far from home so adding new ones will likely wait until 2021.

My number isnt that high currently. I’m only at 19. Once I get my son off to college I expect to add a lot to that number and spend a lot of time traveling.

1. How many courses have you played?  39, but will become 40 by this time tomorrow.


2. How many states/countries does that cover?  Three states, but the vast majority are west-central Ohio. Six are in the area of Outer Banks were we often vacation and then I played one round on a par-3 course in Delaware while visiting my brother.


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

Playing high school and college golf put me on a lot of courses I might not have played otherwise.  Then there're all the private country clubs I snuck onto.  My total is probably over 130.  And I've played golf, not always well, in 14 states.

I just added five Bandon Dunes courses to bring my total to 409 courses played.

- 16 countries

- 10 US Open venues

- 7 British Open venues

- 9 PGA Championship venues

- 1 Masters venue (obviously only 1)

- 45 PGA Tour venues

 

I have been very fortunate.

I can only say that I once owned a used set of Titleist AP 2's that played Augusta National.  Best I can do.

I added Washtenaw Golf Club today!    I like it!

I've played 33 different courses so far this year.

Yes, I like Washtenaw.  I have played there several times, including January 3, 2020.  My notes were:  "43 degrees, cloudy, a breeze around 7 mph. Nice. Course was very soft but not under water. Played long. Rough was healthy. Greens were pretty quick for January."

You got me on the numbers.  Only 25 courses this year.  4 new ones and only a single new course in the Mitten.
