Looking for Golf advice and help

9 posts in this topic

Hi, i am not a golfer at all but im looking for some golf related help.

I am involved in a sport just like golf, you either understand it or dont. Its called geocaching.

Back to my point, there is a puzzle about a golf card, using stableford rules and somehow we have to gain co-ordinates from it. Could anyone offer me any help whatsoever?

The stableford points are the ones in the row W/L/H/PTS.

It might help if you tell people what you're looking to find, just as you don't know much about golf you can't expect people here to know about geocaching coordinates. Is it just a lat and long? How many digits/decimal places?

Possibly starting

N53         41/42/43. _ _ _

W001     43/44/45. _ _ _

If that helps to narrow down some numbers, would be greatly appreciated :)

This is also on the webpage involved with the picture.

The competition was played on a busy Saturday therefore it was necessary to have a two tee start. Some players therefore started from the 10th tee.

Players often put their score on a hole and points together when telling their marker what they got. For instance on hole one the golfer took 4 strokes and scored 3 points and that becomes a 4 for 3 or just 43. Hole 2 is a 44. Hole 3 could just be a 0.

But I'm not sure what to make of the back 9, then 10th hole being a 10 for 0 and there's no 43/44/45 there at all that I can see.

From what I gather, this has nothing to do with golf.......

It sounds like the challenge is finding the coordinates to the golf course that issued the card, based on the information given.

That is correct. Geocashing is an activity that is basically large scale scavenger hunting. In this case, the clue is coordinates on a scorecard.

My wife is a geocache enthusiast too.

Do you know the approximate position of the cache?  What's the closest lat/long to the cache that you can identify?  That will give us a point of reference.....
