It was many years ago, and I wasn't sure how to keep score, so I don't have a number, but I'm pretty sure I ran out of golf balls before I finished 18.

I have been playing a year so my first round was not to long ago. I shot like a 127 I think. I held on to my cards and compared them for the first few months I played. I am shooting in the mid 90's now; however, I remember staying just over 100 for the Longest time. 103 to 106. I am glad those days are over. I hope to stay below 90 this year. I am a real addict. I know I hit over 1000 balls today while at work. I am a paramedic and moved out to the north end of the county when I started playing golf because it is Much slower with fewer calls. I hit balls for 5 straight hours today. I would not quit until I hit every ball at least within ten yard of where I was aiming. I really cant see how anyone can break 100 their first time out. Playing by the rules.

My first paid round was a 40 something on a 9 hole,  par 3 course. 

My first 18 hole round was under a 100. Although  I don't remember the actual number, I do remember being quite pleased that I did break 100 my first time out. I also remember I had some 100 plus rounds after that. :whistle:

Fast foreward 45+/- years, and I shot a 101 earlier this year in very high winds. Winds strong enough to move balls on the green. :~(

Some good stories in this thread.

It was like 5 or 6 years ago and I still have the card.  I threw down a 114.

Man that was a terrible round.  I did hit the practice range a lot and was able to break 100 that first year.

I shot 120 on an easy course. I didn't have a driver so I used someone else's, didn't know how to hit it (still kind of don't :8)). I remember straight up shanking a greenside chip, too, and I'm sure there were lots of fat shots and tops.

I also was the only one in the group to hit the green on an uphill par 3 with a waste area/hazard all in front. In fact, I hit it inside 4'. Then I 3-putt for bogey.

I was 6 or 7 years old the first time I played a full 18 holes with my dad, not sure if we played by the proper rules but I remember that I shot 121 (Probably with a few mulligans).  I think I still have that 20+ year old scorecard somewhere in my parents basement, I was pretty proud of myself from what I can remember.

I shot 59 on a par 32 course.. 

That was three years ago. Last week I shot 34 on the same course.

What is ESC for a first-time golfer? That's what I shot.

The approach that made sense for me was: just get familiar with how things work on a course first. Learn etiquette, hit balls from various positions, use mulligans and don't sweat the rules too much. Once I got familiar with the sport to some degree and had some passable knowledge of the rules, I started to keep score. My guess is that it was in the 100-110 range. 

Looking back, even those scores were a joke anyway. I didn't really know the rules. I've learned a lot since joining here. The scores were vanity scores with the way I would drop for lost balls, roll the ball once in a while for what I thought was an "unfair" lie in the fairway, etc.  I was just playing for fun and the learning experience, so I wasn't gonna "play it down" or anything.

I would think that almost by definition, anyone's first round score is invalid since they likely don't know enough about golf for the score to be done in accordance with ROG. Or maybe I'm just being picky here and this is just about how the score was generally.

I thought it was 108, as a lefty, but I put the max because I started as a righty and I'm sure I wasn't that good. 

I doubt anyone shot 88 the first time picking up a club.
