Depending on which list you go by, I have played 22 "top 100" courses.  Some are top 100 public.  Some are top 100.  Some are on the golfweek "classic" vs "modern" list.  Of the "top" courses I've played, the most memorable was probably Whistling Straits at the American Club in Kohler, WI.

I've played Tullymore and the Grand Traverse Resort in Michigan and Caledonia Golf and Fish Club in South Carolina. We are actually playing Caledonia and it's sister course, True Blue, on Father's Day weekend along with a couple of others courses.

Currently, none, but I plan on changing that whenever I'm finished with college and actually have time/money to have annual/biannual golf trips with friends. My first stop will probably be French Lick, IN, followed by some Michigan links.

Quite a few but it had to stop, I'm still paying for the Pebble beach extravaganza from 15 years ago:)

I've played the French Lick Ross course, but not the Dye.  The Ross course is a lot of fun IMO.  Not sure the Dye course justifies the expense, but that's a pretty objective opinion.

Played a few....

 

Pebble Beach

Pasatiempo (hit Alistair MacKenzie's house with an errant 4-iron)

Torrey Pines South

Wolf Creek

The Classic at Madden's Resort

Troy Burne

 

 

Plan on playing the Quarry at Giants Ridge, Sentryworld, The Wilderness at Fortune Bay and hopefully a few others this year - if I behave myself and get permission from the War Department.

 

I was pretty surprised how many Minnesota and Wisconsin courses are listed - beyond Erin Hill and the Kohler courses.

I have played #88 Great Waters at Reynolds Plantation, always thought I might get a chance to play #73 Caledonia as I had a lot of  friends that went every year but I never got an invite.  

 

Here's the top 100 http://www.golfdigest.com/golf-courses/100-greatest-golf-courses  I have played none of them.

I always thought that was strange but I guess there must have been a reason for that to happen.  Water under the bridge now.

Played in high school tourneys at Tullymore and Grand Traverse for 4 years. Love Tullymore.
