Forget the number of holes-in-one you’ve made, or how many times you’ve broken 80 — everyone knows golf’s ultimate bragging rights lie in the number of GOLF’s Top 100 Courses you’ve conquered. (Or at least played.)  

And now it’s easier than ever to compute that figure.

In our ongoing mission to celebrate the game’s best courses in engaging ways, we’ve added a fun new function to our newly released Top 100 Courses in the U.S. list: the ability to “pin” the courses that you’ve played, which are then curated, in rank order, into your own personal list.

Step 1: “star” the courses you’ve played.

From there, you can share your custom list on Twitter or Facebook (and make all your golf pals envious); print the list and tack it to your office wall; or stare longingly at your monitor and start hatching a plan for how you’re going to get on the courses you haven’t played.

Step 2: admire your own personal list of Top 100 Courses You’ve Played.

So, how many Top 100 Courses have you played? We’d love to know! Click here to find out, then share your number with us via Twitter or Facebook.

Haven’t played many Top 100s — or any? Don’t sweat it. Our Top 100 list also makes for a pretty epic bucket list. To get you started on your quest, here are some tips from our resident Etiquetteist:
