No- sixes - Done..... one round. Finally. This was a big one for me as I think it is culmination of skill level, discipline and straight up mental and stamina. This will headline in my 2023 goals.
GEARS visit - Done. I have posted it in my swing thread but this was huge in my breaking a barrier of play level. It will also feature in my 2023 goals if things work out with @iacasfor a visit.
Stretch goals - Also done! Am sitting at 9.1 right now. To be fair, I started out with 16, a level remnant of my ankle injury two years ago so there were 3-4 shots that would have fallen off by me simply recovering fully, which I can say I have. But still the improvement is undeniable and I am not bragging at all, just very thankful for a good year.
I guess if the pitch and putt course score is accepted for HCPing (IIRC, it has to be over 1,500 yards for 9 holes) then hell yes.. it's a 'real' course and there would be no * on the HIO, but if it is not like the one you are talking about then I guess I would go with what @bkuehn1952states, it's still a HIO even if a bit lame. But unlike him, unless someone asks I will not be volunteering any 'unnecessary information'... heh heh. That's a lot of 'uns' in a sentence but I uncare. 😜
I was hoping to get one at the Sandbox last year so that I can check that box off. As of now, I wait for my first lucky bounce.
