I have been playing a lot of different golf courses & it has become my hobby. I am currently on 325 different courses. I then wanted to know how many courses there are in Aus & also state by state, so I knew how many there are to choose from. This ended up being a problem, as Golf Australia has lots of stats on clubs but not accurate on courses.(There are many social clubs & clubs without courses) The random states I have contacted are the same. Does anyone have any info that could help my quest?

Try the GA web site and look up slope ratings. There may be some duplication where two clubs are 'homed' at the same course but it would exclude all the social clubs that just go from course to course.

According to the home page of the GA website there are 1,497 courses in Australia but as you say that might not be accurate.

 

Assuming 1,497 is closeish 325 is getting towards a quarter, a pretty fine effort.
