Top 100 Courses I’ve Played – December 2015

It’s the end of a very eventful year in The Golf Club and in the TGC Tours community. As the weather starts to (kind of) get colder, the competition in the Top 100 list is heating up. In the grand scheme of the entire TGC database, 100 courses is not actually that big of a number, so good courses will be pushed out of the Top 100 each month. To counter this, I will be occasionally doing some smaller, themed lists, so stay tuned.


The highest-ranked newcomer to the Top 100 this month is actually an older course, Tobacco Dunes, which comes in at 21st. Escalante Steps (23rd), Royal Birkdale 2015 (25th), The Capilano Club (28th), and Harvest Plantation (29th) round out the top 5 newcomers. On the opposite end of the list, Boardsmans Bush becomes the last course knocked out of the Top 100, previously sitting at 86th in November.


As always, if you would like your course played and reviewed, please make a request here.
