I played 36 holes yesterday

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
It was a great experience. I went out to my home course (I'm a member) with one of my friends (non member) and we tee'd off about 45 minutes before the league, but apparently the league only goes off the front, so we got out 18 in, and then went back to the front. We caught the league by the 7th hole, so we played 7 and 8, and at the advice of a league member skipped nine all together. We then went to 10 and played the back nine again, so I guess really we played 35 holes. It was a lot of golf, and although I didn't play my best it was a lot of fun. I played consistently average, and my friend, a new golfer, played his best golf to date. I love this game.

Some friends of mine and I have managed to get 47 holes in on a few occasions (I guess we never realized that starting a little bit earlier would allow us 56 holes). Talk about a lot of fun! Was very tiring at the same time.....I was only able to get either 9 or 18 in on the following days.

Re: I played 36 holes yesterday

I kind of had to chuckle at the title of this thread a little. Last week/weekend was my guys annual golf trip. We played 36 holes Thursday, Friday and Saturday, plus 18 on Sunday coming back. All in +90 degree heat and high humidity. Talk about being worn the heck out....I honestly had zero desire to play on Sunday but did anyway. We do this every year and well...I'm getting too old for this crap!

Needless to say, not real excited to pick up my clubs for the next couple of days. I haven't even mustered up the energy to clean them from the trip. Not very often I can say I'm sick of golf...LOL.

Re: I played 36 holes yesterday

its always a fun time! I try to get out for 36 as often as I can

I try to tee off around 6:30AM then I'll leave and have a sandwhich at the 99 and then go back and play another 18

tiring, but I'm only 23 and can easily walk 36 in a day

back nine
18 holes
18 holes
9 holes until it got dark.

I don't know how you guys can play more than 18 holes in one day. I'm arm weary by the 15th. I must be getting old lol. That or the 110degree heat makes it hard.

I've only reached 27. Very pricey when you don't have a membership

This reminds me of a video I saw when Erick Lindgren bet that he could play 72 holes in one day, carrying his bag.

That is unreal. I couldn't imagine playing 72, halfway through round 2 I'd barely be able to swing the club.

Played 36 holes at my club yesterday (two courses), carrying my own bag in a very hot African autumn sun. I havent played 36 in years. It was just tragic on the second round, shooting 10 over handicap and shuffling my feet like a real lifeweary old man. But the company was good and the courses beautiful.
