How many of you have ever calculated your ringer score on your home course? Of course I mean converting the lowest score you have ever made on each hole to one 18 hole score. For instance over 36 years playing at MPCC here in Charlotte, I've made birdie on every hole, I've eagled three holes and have one hole-in-one. So my ringer score is -23 or 48 on our par 71 course. My guess is many of the better players on here might be in the low 40s or even the 30s. Another option might be to limit it to just this year. So far, my ringer score is -15 for 2020. I've birdied fourteen of our eighteen holes and made an eagle last Thursday (my first in nearly 20 years). I hope you all have fun with this exercise. Also, rest assured I'm not going to turn it around and calculate my "clunker" score which would probably be over 110.

Fun to do, but unless your hole-in-one was on a par 4 (in which case kudos on the albatross!), that makes 4 eagles or 4 strokes less than a birdie for every hole (which is 53 on a par 71 course), for a total of 49. Personally, I am in the mid-50s range as my eagles and one hole-in-one are all on different courses...

Congrats on getting in the forties club! :dance::beer:

So basically my topic was merged with a post from eight years ago, correct?

Yes. That's how it should be.

My home course ringer score… Start at -18, and then I have eagles on… 3, 5, 7, 8, 12… so… -23.

You're right. My hole-in-one was a par three. I screwed up the math. I'll correct it.

Well, I couldn't edit my original post. Sorry.

My ringer score is maybe a 62(-9)? I know I’ve parted every hole at least once and I’ve never made an eagle, so it’s down to how many holes I can remember ever making birdie on.

I don't have a "home course", but if you are a member of Golf Canada and enter your scores hole-by-hole (for handicap calculations), they can produce an "ultimate scorecard" for each course you played (by year or all time) and also by tee box. Generates some interesting results.

In 25 years or a bit more, I've birdied every hole, had eagles on all four par-5s, eagled one (maybe two, not entirely sure) of the par-4s, and have one ace on a par-3.  I think that calculated to be -24.

Yes, I have a mental "ringer" score at Leslie Park.  16 birdies, an eagle (par 4) and an ace for -20, or 52.  It took me a fair amount of time to birdie every hole.  Then in the past couple years I holed out for eagle on #8 and aced #17 in 2018.  I am not long enough to reach the par 5's so any improvement will need another fortunate hole out.

Using only my home course over the years, I have No Albatross's, Eagled all par 5's, Eagled 3 times on par 3'  (2 on same hole)
Eagled 4 different par 4's (12 times on my home hole #7) and all holes have been Birdied.  (30 under par)

My chances of making an Albatross are slim, none and none, until I reach the ripe old age when I may play it forward...  :cry:

I went back to look at my stats and in the last 8 years or so, I had managed to birdie every hole (which I wasn't sure of when I said my 50s above), and hole out a par 4, for a total of -19. If I remember correctly, I also had an eagle on one of the par 5s on that course before I started keeping the stats, so that's -20 or 52.

    • I’m planning on playing tomorrow, and I may or may not decide to play the front tees, just to do something different. That got me thinking: have you ever played the forward tees at your home course? If so, how was it? What were the major differences between them and the tees you normally play? I’ve played the front tees on a few occasions, all in team practices. We played the back nine from the red tees once my freshman year, and I shot 46. This past season, we played holes 1, 2 and 9 where we played two-man teams, worst shot scramble from the reds. That was one of my favorite things we did during practice. We also did a 6-hole competition, playing the aforementioned loop twice. I shot +3, which was only two off the winning score. In terms of differences, it’s about a thousand-yard difference between the whites and reds (6063 white, 5044 red). Although it doesn’t make a huge difference on a lot of the holes, it will take a club or two off my approach, which is good because I’m usually stronger with the shorter irons. No. 4, Par 5. 345 red compared to 478 white. Although I don’t have to hit over the lake with the tee shot, I would still need to worry about trees on the right, OB left, and a bunker about 220 from the red tee. In a way, it may be a tougher hole from the reds than the whites because of how precise the tee shot has to be. In home matches here, we’ll sometimes play this hole from the reds, as a par 4.  No. 9, Par 5. 372 red compared to 442 white. Dogleg left hole, with a bunker at the corner of the dogleg. You can easily carry that bunker from the red tees, while shorter hitters need a good drive to get past it from the whites. No. 13, Par 4. This one is huge. 300 red compared to 421 white. A very tough par 4 from any tee but the reds. Still no pushover at 300 yards, but you can hit a 200-yard tee shot and it won’t hurt you at all. The same length tee shot from the whites will leave you with a difficult downhill lie for your second shot, so you need at least 220 or 230 from back there. No. 16, Par 5. 465 red compared to 523 white. From the white tees, the hole goes gradually downhill after the bunker on the right, which is 240 out. Most of my drives are a little bit short of that trap. From the reds, I can probably land my tee shot on that slope and get a bit of extra roll, leaving me 220, at most, into the green with a well-struck drive. No. 17, Par 4. Another huge difference. 256 red compared to 355 white. Not a tough hole from any tee box, but the reds make this a definite birdie opportunity, since I can get close to or on the putting surface with my tee shot. Because the hole is a dogleg, it’s probably only 240 or so on a straight line. I’ve driven the green before. No. 18, Par 3. Only 94 red compared to 157 white. This epic finishing hole has you hitting over a lake. It’s a mid or long iron from the back two tees, but only a wedge from the front two tees, meaning it’s an easier shot for me. If I play the reds, I think I could shoot low 80s, maybe high 70s if I have my A-game.
    • In an 18 hole round a guy or gal probably averages 6 to 8 gimme-length putts.  Half of those you can just rake in.  The other half, especially when they're an 18 incher, slick green, left to right... they're gonna read those putts, perhaps from both sides of the hole.  And then there are the practice swings.  And if they make it there's the victory dance!  All time consuming.
    • Seems like a lot.  I would have thought it'd be a quarter of that.
    • You're a 12 handicap. From 6400 yards.
    • interesting opinion. I’ve literally been playing nothing but Prov1/Prov1x for 20 years. I agree, not much has come close to it, although I’ve seen some nice balls released by other manufacturers thats have closed the gap. That’s about all I agree with you about however. Feels like a rock? I guess that’s what is so neat about golf equipment and varying opinions. I’m very impressed with the ball, and like I said, I’ve played nothing but Prov1 for 20 years. I scored really well with the ball at TPC Myrtle Beach and Pawleys plantation again today. The ball is solid. It doesn’t spin as much off the tee, and certainly seems to have  more distance, but green side spin was very good and it has nice softness off the Scotty Cameron and rolls true.  Usually very cynical about balls, but this one caught my attention and the Results have been there. I literally rotated a Prov1, Prov1x and AVX last few rounds and amazed.
