high school golf?

3 posts in this topic

I am currently a freshmen and am signing up for golf. I have been playing for a year and a half and am shooting about high eighties, low nineties. I am a 17.2 handicap. My school has never won any titles in mens golf (except once in like 1968). I just don't really know what to do or how it works. My team has 3 really good seniors and i would probably be the fourth man considering no one else golfs regularly like i do. I am curious as to how high school golf works and what experiences some of you have had with it.

I had a great time play high school golf. At my school the first week of practice you would play the course everyday. Your scores would set the teams. Both varsity and junior varsity. We would play a round the day before a tournament to give everyone a chance at improving their average. When at a tournament we would take 6 golfers. All the numbers 6's would play and so on. I graduated a handful of years ago but my advice would be to make the most out of your resources. Use your range time and practice time to get better. If you work harder than the other players you will improve

Camo pretty much summed it up, at least how it was for me. Your coach will establish a method to designate the order of your team, usually your average after several practice rounds. The player with the lowest average will be your #1, the next lowest will be your #2 and so on. Depending on how the tournaments/matches are ran in your state, your team will take the top 5 or 6 players to compete. 1's play against other 1's, 2's play against 2's, and that continues on down the line as Camo mentioned. At the end of the round, the best 4 rounds from each team are kept and totalled, with the lowest team total winning the match. It doesn't matter who posts which score on the team, they always keep the best 4. So say your #5 player posts the best score and your #2 posts the worst. #2's round gets thrown out and #5 gets kept.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
