Well, you guys have finally convinced me to register.
I live in Flag. It's nice, but the mud is currently pissing me off.
Anyway, my best round ever there, and this was a day when the pins were in some of their easier locations, was a eight under. I would of been nine under, but I missed a ten footer. It is what it is, though. This is assuming every hole is a par 3, though the signs tell a different story. Like I said, the pins were in some easy spots. Hole 1 was in it's B placement, 2 was in B, 3 was in A, 4 was A, 5 was A, 6 was A, 7 was B, 8 was in it's long, 9 was in B, 10 was short, 11 was short, Hole 12 was still long, 13 doesn't change, 14 was actually in it's long (B), 15 was A, 16 (though it's alternate is not on the 2003 worlds map) was in it's harder postion,17 was in it's A, and 18 was A. You could add these distances up, but it's really not a distance course, more of a control and finesse, but 11 of those holes are over 300' in those locations, including 5 over 350'.
Granted this is my home course, and I could play glow golf at the course without a flashlight, and have probably played it over a hundred times. I started about eight months ago, so the idea that I have played that course about three times a week sounds right. As during the summer I was hitting it sometimes twice a day, but during football season, about once every two weeks.
What I'm trying to get at, though, is whether or not you all would think this score is good. I have never played in a tournament, but I always beat my immediate friends, and I have only met one guy who consistently beats me. I have only gone to the league nights six times, each time I finished top four, winning it once. However, most of the guys there were drunk, and it was always a Tuesday, when people play with handicaps, and the elite are usually wasted. My handicap is ~ 3/4 under now. I'm taking my place by raw scores though.
So, is that a good score? What is that score "rated" by the PDGA?
Yes, NAU was tough. The university has decided to use that space for playing fields. The course is back at it's "old" location, near 40 and the power plant. It only has twelve holes right now because it was moved in the first place, a few years back, to it's "new- old" location (where the fields are now), if you will, because the university built a water treatment plant in the course. They are currently planning and starting construction on an eighteen hole course on campus. This was a big blow for me, as it was my favorite course, and I could just play objects on the "old" course.
I have marked trees at McPherson, near where the pole holes were. It's "playable".
