A few golfers have made it a priority to try and play all of the golf courses on the top 100 list. This of course takes a sizable effort in money, time, and connections. Many of the courses on the top 100 list, such as Pine Valley Golf Club, Pine Valley, New Jersey, Augusta National Golf Course, Augusta Georgia, and Oakmont Country Club, Oakmont, Pennsylvania are private, very private. There may be a few who have played over half of the top 100 golf courses, but 99% of all golfers have played fewer than five of the top 100 courses.
While the top 100 course list creates some pretty pictures, for most golfers, the list is really not relevant. The fast majority of all golfers play 90% of their golf within 120 miles of their home. And in most areas, that means they have a choice of about 200 to 300 golf courses from which to select. Local knowledge of the courses you are most likely to play is a lot more relevant than a top 100 course list.
