Most Holes Played In A Day?

Postby jase » Sun May 14, 2006 11:29 am

Title says it all. What is the most holes you have played in a day. Yesterday I played 72 and was wondering what about you guys? I also have another question relating my distance. Im 14 and have been playing for 3 years. My farthest Drive was 320'. Is there anything to worry about distance wise? Would this be average?

Thanks.

id say at 14 320 isnt bad at all.

I took a 3 day road trip last summer played 2 to 5 courses a day. Most holes in one day was probably around 108 (6 rounds 18 holes a piece) 5 of which was the same course, first round was at 7am, and we left around 4 and hit another course on the way home.

I think my most holes in a day is only 45. I played 2 rounds at lighthouse and then another 9. This course is hilly and long though so 45 holes is plenty. My arm can't take much more than this the way I throw.

320 unique holes! That's a lot of different courses all close together.

Getting ready for my first tournament, I drove up to the course on a couple of days the previous week to practice. Since the course was a little ways away, I made the most of my trips and played 5 rounds of 20 per day with another 18 at my home course on the way back. That's 118 and about as much as I can take in one day. It would be fun to try and break that record, though. :D

When I was much younger (early to mid 20's) it was fairly common for me to play 72+ holes on tournament day. I'd guess my max was somewhere around 100 holes.

I used to always play an 18 hole round before the event, 36 or 54 holes during the event and then 18 holes of random draw doubles after the event. In the 80's most pdga events in my region were one day 3 rounds of 18 and there was always random draw doubles after the event. So that's 72 right there so throw in a practice round before the event and 9 holes of skins over the lunch break and it's not hard to get to 100 rounds.

Today with my many injuries over the years and fondness for sleep I never play more than 40 holes in a day and that's only when I have to play 36 during the event.

Most unique holes was 63 during a tournament that we played 4 courses spread over about 80 miles. That was a fun day but a long day. The TD put everyone up overnight at his bayside cabin at the end. Supercool.

320' is average distance. You'd have lots of company among the dg population at that mark. I'd say competitive ams ave around 310, adv 340 and pros 380. (all open and masters, not just the 1000+ rated)

How'd you play Frisco 5 times in one day!?!

Every time I play there it's throw, wait for the group(s) ahead of you to finish the next hole, etc.

I played 27 holes at Empire (Easter Seals Camp) 3 times for 81 holes total about a month and a half ago.

there were probably only 3 groups on the course for the first 2 rounds, we did lunch when it was buisest, and probably only had to wait at all if the group ahead of us lost a disc.

Played 5 rounds of 18 holes in one day at my local course in one day. My step son routinely plays 5 or 6 rounds in a day if he's off on the weekends...
