If it's listed on here as a course, it counts. For me, that's the easiest way to keep track. Target courses absolutely should count. Somebody went to the trouble of designing a layout.

Really, at the end of the day, does it matter THAT much? After about 100 courses, it's just a talking point.

All good questions. If you ever solve them, there'll be more to follow, because of the spectrum of disc golf courses people install, permanently or temporarily, and the ever-changing nature of some of them.

Crooked Creek Park (Chapin, SC), has an 18-hole layout. They added an extra set of 9 holes, in a string, not a loop. Someone listed them separately on this site as the "Pro 9", or somesuch. But nobody plays them as a separate course, since they don't make a loop. I count it all as one course.

Stoney Hill has both continuously evolved, so that few holes now are the same as they were in 2008; and increasingly built two overlapping layouts, so that, at this point, they play as almost completely different courses, with only 4 shared holes. But they're contained in the same footprint, more or less, and I count them as one.

Gran Canyon existed as a private course for years. It was then closed for about 6 years, and has since re-opened as an annual temp course. Except the new version is almost completely different, in many places fairways are reversed. I count them as separate courses (in part, to keep my internal debate going as to which was better).

Someone could argue the opposite, in all 3 cases, and have valid points.

A friend built a 9-hole private course, strictly a personal course, so it doesn't even have a name. Can't put it on an official list, but I count it.

Who knows what someone else will come up with, that doesn't fit categorization.

As for the object courses, you'll might want to sort out some groundrules about how long they've existed with essentially the same layout, whether they've had printed maps, etc. You might find some college students with Frisbees have created bunches of them, that each disappear after the term, to be left for the next term to create their own new course.

I've enjoyed seeing my courses played list grow... just over 200 now @3.8 years into this crazy thing called disc golf... would probably be aiming for the really big numbers if I didn't have a full time job but thankful that the job I have does allow me to travel and see great courses all over. Only a couple of people higher on this list than me have less years... but I guessing my rate of growth will slow because most of my travel is back to the same places... I often prefer to play a good course again rather than try some little on the side thrown together thing (Not that I've met many courses I don't like for what they are)... I like to see my progress over time on courses I've already played. Funny how my scores haven't improved as much as I think my throwing and putting has??? Hopefully that changes soon.

Anyway, look forward to seeing some of you out there... I'm sure I've met some of you already and just don't know it.

interesting examples. personally, i'd count each as one.
for object courses, by their nature i'd consider one location as one course regardless of changing layouts. but i think the same thing for basket courses so that's just me.

It seems pretty easy to get to 100, so I'm saying 200 is the new 100! it takes about that many courses played to impress me haha

for most of us but the pain is real for some of our fly-over-state brethren

but if you live in TX, NC, the northeast, or the upper midwest then it's just a matter of having the time and motivation to travel

that depends on where you live. if i played every course within 6 hours of me, i would still not crack 200.

It's a lot easier than it used to be lol. When I 1st started playing on baskets there were less than 15 courses in the entire state of MS. Now there are that many just in the Tupelo area alone.

Is there a way to view how many courses you have played each year? I would love to see the progression I made between years.
