The Top 100 Courses I’ve Played – October

Well it’s the end of October, so I guess a course rankings list is in order. After my torrid pace in September, I feel like I limped through the finish line in October. Despite a sharp downtown in my play in the second half of the month, I am still happy to say that I was able to get 17 new rankings in, bringing the total to 84. We are perhaps just a month away from from seeing a true Top 100 list! Which is great, because what can be more dumb than a Top 100 list that doesn’t even feature 100 courses?

 

If you’re new to the party, remember the Rules of Thumb:

– If you don’t like the rating, direct your rage at me, not at TGCTours.com. But not really, because I know my ratings stink, no need to tell me!

– My courses aren’t included, because I can’t use any rating higher than 10.

– I will update this as I play and rate more courses. My current list to play includes several hundred courses. Quick Review Notes for almost every course are also found in the same thread.

– Don’t forget, some courses I’ve played but have not yet reviewed or rated. Some of these courses have been rated since that was published, so a new list might be in order next month.
