The courses listed below are the courses that are rated as Top 100* by one, and only one, of the golf course rating
entities.  As always, it will be fun to play these courses to experience them for myself and it will be fun to see how
their rankings change over time.

*For Golfweek, I am using a composite modern/classic list.
