1st 18 holes round. I played on my own (and had a gap to the group behind so I had time to complete every hole) and kept the score pretty much by the rules. 158 on a par 72 (CR 70.9 slope 130). Hard work but the baseline now set! Had a great day however (8th hole in attached photo).

We've had a couple of these types of threads over the years. First time I played I was terrible and shot over 100. I immediately went to my father who was scratch at the time, and he helped me. I spent a few weeks on the range until I could make consistent contact, and I never shot over 100 again. I was breaking 90 later that year.

First 9 after 2 days of a beginners course I shot 57 on a par 30. I played my first 18 holes on a full length course around six months later and shot 95.

Ive actually never shot over 100.😄

Well, I don't have to "remember" much.  It was today.  9-hole, par 3 course for noobs.  Shot one under "double par" (53) -- BEST ROUND OF MY LIFE! 😆

But I had lots of fun... and that's the point.  The scores will improve... So, I'm not worried about that.

I don't remember what my first score was.   But I do know now that whenever I complain to my wife about not playing well, she remarks "I remember when you couldn't break a hundred!"

So, now when I shoot worse than I think I should have and she asks how it went, I simply say "great!"  🙂

I think that was back in 1978.  I have no recollection whatsoever, can't even venture a guess.

It looks like you got better as the round went on, that is a big plus.  What course was that?

Bushwood  😉 Golf Course in Northville, Michigan.

 

My tale of woe:  Hit 7 really good... landed near the green, upside fringe, chipped... in and out (up/down)... rolled to the other side fringe.  Would've been a birdie but, instead, I was further away than my first chip shot. 😆

One thing you need to remember, Golf will always humble you. But then you will get that great shot that makes you eager to come back.

you are not far from me, maybe get together some time for a round.

I've seen plenty in life to humble me -- I don't need golf for that.  And I've been knocked down so many times, I've lost count.  But I keep getting back up... to do a'maize-ing things, including being an alum of YOUR favorite school to hate...  I'm not quite ready to play for the pride of my school.  But, hopefully, soon.  Here's a pic of my golf bag, for your enjoyment. 😆

How could I hate UM? They have  helped us with 17 wins in the last 20 games.  Go Harbaugh!

130+ back in 2003 playing with a co-worker who dragged me out at a local cow patch that is an outlet development now. I had been to the range only once before that and remember coming away with blisters on both my hands..😄

It was love after the first date. Other than my wife and kids, my strongest commitment to anything yet! Kinda proud of myself and honestly proud of all y'all lifetimers too..:beer:

I really don't remember since it was around 35 years ago.  I would reckon somewhere around a 100 or so but this was in the days before electronic devices and scorecards, which means unless my parents have saved the scorecard, I will never know.

I can't remember what I shot in my first round. I know it was a 9 hole round in 1993 on a Tuesday. 

I had just started a new job. It was my second day. A Tuesday morning, and a colleague came up to me and said "We have a Tuesday Night Golf League and I signed you up for it." 
"I don't have clubs." 
"Run out and buy some on lunch." 
"Okay." 

I bought a dozen balls and a boxed set of clubs. They were a set of Knight Centauri's. I can't really recall if the set came with a bag and a putter or if I bought those separately. Either way, that evening I played 9 holes. I don't remember my score, but it wasn't good. The nachos and beer after the round were delicious. I do remember that.

I was supporting a data center in Tallahassee, Fl two weeks out of every six weeks and it was a road trip for me.  The customer didn’t want us onsite unless there was trouble, so boredom was an issue, and I would ride around looking for things to do.

Late one afternoon I saw a golf course and decided to play the next day knowing nothing about the game. That night I look up how to hold a golf club on the internet. The next day I went to the course, rented clubs, and played.   

I called my boss when I was finished, he being a very good and addicted golfer. He asked what I shot and I told him it was a 56 or 57. He was astounded and I don’t think he believed me until I told him it was a 9-hole par 3 course.

I’ve been addicted since I played that game.

I'm going to guess that it was something in the 80s on a short little executive course called Rollandia. Truth be told, it wasn't much more than a pitch-and-putt. There were two holes you could hit a wood on. Greens were perfect, flat pancakes.  Put it this way. The place shared the property with "The Magic Castle".

 Lots of worm-burners, but at least we didn't have that far to go.

I don''t remember, but I am sure it was a LOT. Only went to a driving range once in my life before my first round.  My eldest brother, 9 years my sr, took me to a now closed course in Bellaire MI, in 1977 or so.. I sucked but was smitten by the game. 7 years later I was pretty darn good and stayed that way for a decade and a half when injuries from other sports and work made my handicap climb precipitously. When I hit double digits, I quit for 20 years till my kid took up the game. Golfing with the kid tat 12:45, this will be interesting, playing off L Huron with 10-20 mph winds gusting to 30mph in the forecast for this afternoon. I like playing in the wind.

Sorry for the delayed response... but "life happens." 🙂

 

Well, we NEVER lost a football game to the Buckeyes while I was in school. 🙄*

And NONE of our long winning streak (Where have you gone Earl Bruce?) was VACATED (2010) due to cheating. 😜

And how is Maurice Clarett?  Has he learned how to read yet? 😆 

 

[*Full disclosure: we also never beat Notre Dame 😒 ]
