Ilkka's Course Ranking

My course ranking is 100 % biased and subjective. I would love to tell you more about the courses and disclose the witchcraft behind the ranking.

I have played about 100 courses. The ranking includes only courses that I have personally played. You can see the course architect in parentheses. It is based on their vision that these courses exist. Hat tip to them!
