Home Course Ringer Score


Recommended Posts

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.

    • 20 year break!  ... Let me guess, you got married? ...  You had kids? ... Or had a career change? ... Maybe did a little time in the pokey? 🤪 Anyway, welcome back to the game and welcome to the forum.  
    • Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!! Don't go away. Take a step back for a second. Listen, I know quite a few of the folks on this forum personally and they are all really good people, who love discussing golf. It seems you've become very upset because the title of your thread was changed. Think of it this way, when searching for this thread the rest of us need a way to recognize it. The moderator who changed it just tried to make it easier for the rest of us to find your thread.  Over the years I've had many thread titles changed. I've started other threads which have been merged with similar threads as well. This is a huge form. It's been around for 20 years. The moderators are just trying to keep thing tidy to help us all out.  Give us a chance. I think you'll find this really is a great place for golf talk. I'd suggest "The Numbers Thread", "The would you rather" thread, and the "General COVID-19" thread. Go in there and poke around. There's good stuff in there.  Remember a forum is a collection of personalities just like any forum that gets together in "real life". Some folks are better communicators than others. Some folks are wittier than others. (I'm looking at you @Double Mocha Man. I promise you if you hang around here you'll find stuff that will help your son's game. You'll find stuff that will challenge what you thought about some situations. You'll likely even make some friends. Besides if you go, who's going to teach me new words? I had to look up pedantic.... I had no idea what that meant. I was pretty sure it wasn't positive. But I went to Chicago Public Schools so my vocabulary isn't the strongest. 
    • I saw him hit his last home run in Milwaukee in 1976.  I had just graduated high school. A great talent.  RIP.
    • Sticking with the same stuff, left leg slider feel and maintaining the right ankle dorsiflexion. Hitting it well, taken a lot of the left miss out of play, misses recently have been pushes. Went to PING last week to get fit for the new woods, some changes from my last trip which I think is reflective of the swing trending in the right direction. Don't need to tweak the loft lower with the driver anymore and they recommend I hard-step my iron shafts. I like how stable the right foot is on the backswing and how the left foot is rolling to the outstep much less with the face-on.
