I agree with those saying that, for the all-golfer population, bogie golf is "good" (i.e. decent) golf. But if you have ambitions to be a reasonably good golfer in the population of golfers who take the game seriously and are somewhat competitive (play in tournaments, play weekly and post their scores), then shooting < 80 consistently would be "good" golf IMO.
