I played a round with a sweet 94 year old man who still plays 3 times a week. He also entertained us by telling stories, jokes and even threw his voice as a ventriloquist.

Whats your best golf experience playing a round? Thanks in advance for your replies.

When I was in high school we shared our home course(which I worked at) with a private school in the area so there were a lot of rich kid members that always had a couple grand worth of clubs in there bag but were completely average golfers. One day I joined with a couple of them for a round. They both claimed to be like a 6-7 handicap and I was like a 12. There was always a kind of rivalry between the public school kids and them and I ended up shooting like 2 or 3 over on the round and smoked them both. It was a good day.

It has to be the time that while we were waiting to tee off a red tailed hawk come swooping down and hit a ground squirrel. It happened about 10 yards from us. Those are big birds and it was an impressive sight. Then it flapped over to the green adjacent to the tee and proceeded to enjoy its meal.

When my dad was about to tee off on a par 4 (roughly 400 yards) and tee'd it up so high he hit under it and the ball went straight up then landed right by his tee that was knocked over but still in the same place where it was set into the ground. Absoluley hularious expecially watchign him duck and run away from it.

My third round of golf ever. The first time I had played with this particualar group, 3 older guys who were all really nice and really funny.

I told them, "Guys, I'm new. I don't think I've played 18 holes total in my life"

They were very nice to me, and I proceeded to play the best round ever. I still haven't played that well. I was hitting drives with my 3-wood (I still do). And they were all straight as an arrow down the middle of the fiarway. Not too far down, but still decent shots. Sure, I hit some bad ones, but for me it was a great day.

i shot a 50 on the front 9, which is my best 9 ever. I still haven't hit better than that. The guys kept looking at me saying, "You sure you're not hustling us?" Of course, one guy shot a 37, and the other two shot like a 40 each, so I know that they were just being polite, but it still felt great. Really nice guys, we still play together sometimes.

That was a fun day. I felt like a king.

When I started my first company, I wanted to play golf with my father to celebrate. On the 5th hole, I got a hole in one. My only one ever to this date, and by far my greatest day on the golf course.

Over 15 years ago I was playing with my father and his best friend. My Dad had been playing for 25 years and was the man who taught me all about this beautiful game. Par 3, 172 yards on the Old Course of the Royal Hong Kong Golf Club. My dad's 6-iron took off like an excocet, right at the flag. Three hops, roll and dropped for an ace. Big bear hugs all around. His first and only hole-in-one before he died way too young.

Pure magic - I remember it like yesterday.

It was my FIRST time going out on an actual course. I'd been to the range a few times but that was it. My uncle took me out to a not so hot course being its my first time. 8th hole i was getting a little frustrated and i hit my second shot into some trees, and under the trees there was alot of dead branches so i was basicly screwed. I just took a pitching wedge from about 20 yards and hit it soft like he told me. Out of the brush bounces twice and rolls into the cup.

He was on the phone and he threw it in the air and THAT was my best experience.

Three..

1. This past weekend finally shooting in the 70's. I was pretty happy about that.

2. Couple years ago, we played Old Kinderhook, Lake of the Ozarks, Mo; one spring morning and there were gobblers hammering all morning long...and it was echoing in those valleys, awesome sound..

3. Playing in a 4man scramble tournament with some buddies and one of them was struggling all day....couldn't do anything right. Well we all had a long birdie putt with one mulligan for our group, we all missed and he wanted to use the mulligan, so he putted and it looked center cup all the way till it lipped out, lmao..he raised his putter up real fast on the lip out and the shaft snapped inside the grip and it hung out of his hand like he was holding a garden hose..I about died from lack of oxygen from laughing so hard...

    • In these kind of situations, it is often the message from the top or lack of it that sets the tone. The head of the league, outing or other event needs to make it clear the rules are to be followed and if there are any conditions outside the ordinary. You'll always have cheaters, but failing to make expectations clear allows Joe Amateur to use his imagination.
    • Played the weekly clubtournament yesterday: A stableford tournament from the yellows (6300 yards, Rated 72,7, slope 147) Shot 86 (36 stableford points). A pretty good round, but it was far from a perfect round.  Positives: - No lost balls (despite hitting one in the creek on 8 (found it, but had to take the penalty and a drop there) - Played solid through the 2 hardest stretches on the course. Hole 5-7 (+1) and hole 13-14 (E) - Birdie on the tough 13 (390 yards par 4 playing into wind  with a narrow teeshot and the approach playing 15 yards downhill) after a good drive (275 yards) into the wind to the right side of the fairway and a perfect soft AW from 120 that landed a foot short of the pin and jumped a couple of feet back to 3 feet. That shot looked like it was going in. - Only hit 3/13 fairways, but none of the missed fairways was by more than 5 yards and only one cost me a shot (on 16 where I had to chip it back to the fairway). So all my misses were pretty much in the right places.  - Hit 8 greens (14 nGIRs). Good, but not great.  - The round took my index south of 10,0, so new my new index is now 9,9 Negatives:  - The par 3s - shot +7 on the 5 par 3s, which is the worst I've done so far this season. Managed to shoot a 5 on hole 4 (205 yards into wind yesterday) without using my putter and without penalties. Duffed the teeshot 130 yards short and a little bit right, shanked the next shot into the left greenside bunker, hit the first bunkershot fat and still found my self in the sand, thinned the next bunkershot and flew it over the green and holed the 15 yards chip from there for a 5 and 0 stableford points. To a lot of amusement for everyone in my flight. The 6 i shot on hole 8 (180 yards uphill with wind from behind and left) was quite forgettable: Pulled my 8'iron slightly and flew it over the green right into the creek there, penalty drop, chipped it to 15 feet from there and needed 3 putts to hole it (found the ball in the creek(Y) ).  - Struggled with the speed on a 15 footer (sent it 6 feet past on 8 ) and 40 footer (left it 12 feet short on 14) , which I normally don't struggle with. Putting was good apart from those 2 and were the only 3-putts I made. On both those putts it felt wrong in the backswing and I still didn't abort the swing. Need to work on that.  33 putts total is not great, but is acceptable with the chances I gave myself on the greens. - A little inconsistant with my longer chips, needs to get them a little closer. This is a part of the game I have been very good at lately and this was not my best round around the greens. Only 2 1-putts after chipping and one holeout. Should do better.   
    • After a decent round yesterday i finally reached goal number 1 this season: HCP-index: 9,9.  Now let's keep it there or lower. 
    • You really need to call out your cheating partner.  Never allow it to continue.  Otherwise you will either get bitter about it or refuse to play with him.
    • Or wager against them, but watch them closely and play strict rules.  After all, their handicaps are probably treating their concessions as sunk. Three players in my club's match play qualifier were DQ'd for taking gimmes during the qualifier.  Those are a no-no when it's medal play for a match play qualifier.
