Sad because I wont be able to start for like another 3 months probably (gotta love Michigan) but I love this idea! Unfortunately there are 3 holes on my "home" course that I am yet to birdie in my 4 year golf career and will probably take a lot of luck even if my game is in a good place to make it happen. They are all in a row 15, 16, 17 I have only seen one of them birdied by an individual and that was a chip in and we struggle to birdie them even in our 4 man scrambles sooo lets just say confidence is low lol

Forced myself to go out today, very wet but I am missing getting out to play. Only the back open due to so much water on the front you can't get down #1. Played silver tees 1 time and birdied #18. Played blue second time but 16 and 18 did me in. I guess with this new hcap system, a net double bogey on a par 5 that I get a stroke on means I can now take an 8 !!!

Managed to get out for 9 today too.  Trying again tomorrow for more.

Well, only one birdie today but it was a good one, checked off #10. Three more birdies needed with probably three more rounds left in the month.

Well, I have still only played 3 rounds, and none of them have been on my home course. Hoping that a good weather weekend day will come soon so I can at least put something on the sheet.

We’re almost a month into this challenge, and it’s not looking good for me so far. Probably three or four rounds so far in 2020, two I remember at my home course. No birdies yet, and I’m probably not able to play until next weekend, for two reasons: 1) The course is probably going to be very wet both tomorrow and Sunday, because we just got a good amount of rain, and 2) School. Tomorrow and Sunday are gonna be practice days, probably an hour and a half to two hours each day.

You already checked off more holes in a month than I'll probably get all year :cry:

GL Mike!

I'll give it a shot.

I know from my golfshot app that at my home course I birdie 1% of the holes (all rounds, going back about 9 years) to 2% (last 20 rounds as of end of October).  That's an average of one birdie every 3 rounds (at 2%) to 5 rounds (at 1%).  First mentally try to tick off a par for each hole and then see how many birdies accumulate along the way.

There are a couple of holes that I consider par a very good score, and maybe have only birdied once or twice.  Others I have birdied quite a few times. I'll see how it goes. :-)

Since it would take me FOREVER to do the birdie challenge, I made it the par challenge. First round on my home course, 4 pars, all on the front and shot 93.

Two birdies today and checked off #4, my nemesis hole! Changed my strategy and hit 3-wood off the tee instead of driver.

Two more birdies and two more rounds to go. Honestly, I'd be really surprised if I birdie 8 and 14 in the next two rounds but I'll be trying hard. Pretty cool I've gotten this far 😎

Well I made a rash decision and decided to play my 4th round of the year today. It was about 35 degrees when I started and it didn't get much warmer than that. Here are a few select pictures from my round.

1.) Icy green number 3

2.) Looking back up number 12. This hole was played at around 165 yards today, and is probably 70 feet or more down hill. Hit a 7 iron just right but the wind didn't bring it back how I expected.

3.) The closest thing I saw to sunshine.

4.) Catching my breath after a severely uphill walk to the tee box on 18.

5.) My scorecard, which was surprisingly ok considering the weather conditions. Starting out with 4 double bogey 6s wasn't the best, but I hadn't played in a couple of weeks, so some rust need to be knocked off.
