The Top 100 Courses I’ve Played – September

Last month’s Top 100 list seemed like it was a success, despite only including 41 courses. It may not seem like much, but this month’s list includes 67 courses, meaning I played and reviewed a whopping 26 courses in September! Even though I had a blast playing these courses, I don’t think that pace will continue into October. I will set a moderate goal for myself of reaching 100 courses reviewed by the end of November.


New for this month is a couple of things. First, the courses are now in a more complete order in comparison with each other. This means some courses will slide compared to August, while others will see a nice bump. Second, course ratings have been removed, but a monthly rankings comparison has been added.


The Rules of Thumb remain much the same as last month:

– Direct your rage at me, not at 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.

    Hey, thanks for putting this together. Some great courses I have never seen (joined TGCTours late and am in CC flight).
