Y'all get handicap strokes and stuff…

 

1 point for bogey, 2 for par, 3 for birdie, 5 for eagle, 8 for albatross

Yea, looks like my kind of course, it will be fun! I hate a golf course that's just driver off the tee all the time. Options are good, and strategy required.

I've started building my tee shots/course management plan. I'll have to see if any of my strategy changes one I actually see the course.

#10 would be higher, but they typically want the odd numbered holes on the front nine.

 

There's a range. You can get 70 balls for $7 I think. :) Enjoy! :)

That's OK. I have plenty of junk balls that make good ravine donations. ;-)

Yeah, but one of the sub-300 ones, you can't go for the green...unless you have some biiiiig cajones...

I have some tentative groupings. I need to find that sixteenth player, though.

 

I sorted by handicap, and then assigned groups ABCDDCBAABCDDCBA. Then I flipped a C and a D because two people who regularly play together already were on the same team, and the point is more to socialize with new people.

 

The team handicaps worked out to 52 44 43 41 that way.

 

Gotta find that one more person.

 

Or three more people (+ Mike and I = 20).

My index is dropping pretty fast right now, it's dropped 1.5 and depending on what I score thursday may go down more..... Just a heads up

Good. Let me know what it is. Technically I think handicap revisions come out on the 15th, and I'll make the adjustments necessary.

If I don't get in another round by then, I will be up to a 15.2.

My handicaps are effective on the first of the month. Not sure if that is due to the association I joined or not. So I am stuck were I am at.

Look at it this way, get a par on number 1 and you are SET!!!

Actually, I just checked and it said mine is effective as of 8/1 also... I guess my trending handicap won't come into effect for this... CRAP.....

From the USGA:

 

Note: In addition, the National Revision Schedule mandates all domestic golf clubs must revise on the 1st and the 15th of each month during the calendar year.

 

It says it's effective as of August 1 because… it's not yet August 15. The 1st is the most recent revision to your handicaps.

 

@CarlSpackler I'll update yours in the spreadsheet. And here. It didn't change your course handicap.

Ah, good to know!

Hmm.... maybe I'll try to get another full round and the 9 holes from league done so I can get 2 full rounds on the books for my index. I'd like to get to about 22 before the next revision. Still horrible, but at least it's improving.

post #322 of 552

I posted a score this past Saturday, so I think I will have a small revision before the round.

I think that will happen plenty by default if not design anyway.

I'll be happy with a net par. ;-)
