A True Top 100 I’ve Played! (November)

The run of not-really-Top-100 lists has come to an end, and I now have a true Top 100 I’ve Played list to present. Each month’s list has gotten just a little bit harder to produce, and ranking courses in comparison to other courses that I played many months ago has been a real test. That is why, I think, I have done a better job of keeping notes and writing slightly lengthier reviews.


I would also like to note that I’ve seen recent discussions on the HB forums about the decline in the number of courses being produced, and how difficult and discouraging it is to get your course played. I have a few thoughts on this subject:


  1. I produce my list of upcoming courses to play (same link as above) based on courses that I see in the Course Discovery forum, or courses posted to TGC Tours. If you do not see your course on my list (please use ctrl+F to search, as it is a long list), let me know and I will add your course to play.
  2. I noticed a few people mentioning that they no longer post their completed courses on either the HB or TGCT site, or that they refuse to pimp their courses. Please do! This is the only way for me to find, play, and rank your course.
  3. I’ve also seen some complaints that newly released courses get a small influx of plays early on, and then the course fades away to never be heard from again. I rarely play a course right after it is released, and it can take up to a few months for me to get to it. This allows me to give the course a bump after it has already faded away, giving it a longer life span.


Please enjoy the rankings, and remember that they are not scientific or professional in any way, but merely a way to help TGC gamers navigate the unwieldy database of courses within the game.
