Here's the deal, folks: I'd like to play enough golf and birdie every hole at Whispering Woods in 2020. I'd like you to join me on this quest. So, I've set up a spreadsheet here:

Completed "Birdie - Challenge" yesterday with a great shot on the 18th hole to 2 feet for the final hole to bird. Made 4 birds yesterday and 3 again today. Decent rounds, but had a few poor swings

WooooOOOOOOO!!!!!! Finally pulled it off in about the 14th round at Whispering Woods (from the blue or black tees)! I needed 1 and 2, and most of the time, I'd show up and roll onto the first tee

This is brilliant!
I'm in.

My home course is only 9 holes. So, I will try to birdie all of the holes twice. (It will be a challenge as of now there are 2 holes I've never birdied.) The first birdie will go on the front nine. If there's a second birdie it will go on the back nine.... I'm assuming that's allowed.

Cool idea, I'm in.

Man, you are going to be done before I put a tee in the ground this year. More of the white death was falling from the sky yesterday.

I have rounds dating back to 2006 which show best score of every hole at my club.
I think my best was 16 or 17 holes playing/recording only rounds in Mens Games on Thursdays and Saturdays (34 rounds)
Over the course of an entire season, this will be a piece of cake in 2020... 😁

I looked at my old University's records, they're up past 90 inches of snow this season.  With this note:

On days of high winds the snow readings recorded here are significantly lower than actual snowfall. 

Makes a cold day in Virginia seem pretty nice.

72 today with four birdies, two were repeats, checked off #3 and #17.

I'm thinking you should be playing in the TST Eagle Challenge instead. :-)

5 birdies this weekend. Saturday 4#, 14# (chip-in)  and Sunday 4#, 6# and 13# (chip-in). 

The 14# hole is the hardest of the course so it´s a good start.

This is a really fun idea. Count me in👍

 

At the course where I used to work the ladies auxiliary held a similar year-round challenge. It was called Par-Perfect. A pot was built over an entire year which was eventually split among the ladies that did go on to par every hole.

 

Hearing that, I adapted my own challenge. Eagle-Perfect. Not that I did this over one year's time, rather a running total that lasted 14 years until I left the club for another.

 

Over my 14 years there, I ended up eagling, at least one, all but four holes. Number 4, an uphill par 4. Number 12, 195y par3. 14, 212y par3 and 16, 168y par3.

 

I'll get in on the challenge asap!

Okay, I will give this a try.  In 2019 I was -8 at Leslie Park with 15 rounds.  My goal is to beat that number in 2020. As much as I want to start now, it is doubtful I will play there until April.

Jeezus, Mike, play the back tees or something. You'll be done by February.

All Low Handicappers the challenge should be to Birdie all of them twice … 🙂

And maybe throw in a minimum of six Eagles …

I'm in!  I'm maintaining membership at what my home course was when I lived in Los Angeles county, and I'll use that for this.  I plan to wander back up to visit friends -- doing so tomorrow for my first round of the year, but not at that course.  There are six holes at that course (I've been playing there since 2008, with about two years off in the middle) that I have never birdied.  Maybe I'll fix that this year ;-)

I’m in, but I walk the muni 2 to 4 times/week so I’ll pick the three favorite courses nearest me. Hope to play all three multiple times in 2020.

Aloha,

iSank and yes I have sank = to how many times I have surfaced.

    • I keep coming back to this whenever I think about this topic. What an odd exclamation for him to say, out all the possibilities. 
    • Maybe 30 courses.  WA, OR, Kauai, AZ, CA, Cabo and Puerto Vallarta. Bend Oregon and Sedona Arizona have some great golf.  
    • They are about making money, but reputation is also worth a lot of money. If your supply chain involves human rights issues, bribery, exploitation, etc., and your customers find out, you can lose a lot more money than you saved with lower cost raw materials or manufacturing sites. And I mean a lot more.  The company I retired from spends considerable resources to determine if the supply chain meets the company’s core values. I was part of those teams. PR is hugely important. Keeping customers is absolutely vital. Premium products can cost more because those supply chain have been vetted. The company’s reputation depends on it.  A hypothetical concern was raised about RL in the thread above with no data support that accusation. For all we know, RL has fully vetted their supply chain and that is why they are so ready to protect their brand. I hope JT learns from that.
    • 100% Agreed - I don’t think I could’ve recalled that word from the 80’s-90’s if you paid me. It’s so obsolete. If he pulled that out of thin air at a moment of frustration, clearly it’s not that obsolete from his vocabulary.    Having said that, when someone does something they regret, I try not to judge them in their worst moments as I wouldn’t want to be judge in mine.  But don’t give me that “it’s not me” line. Let’s be honest.
