You're ripping guys who get excited about breaking 80 on a course rated 68.4 or something similar, but the reality is that very few of us play courses such as what you describe (72.8 rating, 131 slope) on a regular basis. Maybe you or I wouldn't be happy about a 79 on a 68.4 rated layout, but why do you feel the need to rain on someone's parade? Hey, none of us should be judging the merits of someone else's rounds. If they're thrilled, I'm happy for them. You should be, too.

I hold a course record on a course that's par 70 with a 70.0 rating and a 127 slope. Should I be embarrassed because the rating and slope don't meet your standards? 

 

Bingo!  I shot my PB on a course with a 69.4/120 rating, but as far as I'm concerned, one over par 73 is still just one over par.

If your cell phone is clipped to your belt during play you're a non-golfer

If you have a towel clipped to yourself while you're playing, you are a non-golfer.

What kind of beer are we talking about??

Depends on the course. 

Fancy - Stella Artois

Hilly - Guinness or London Pride

Goat Track - Busch

Stella Artois???????

JUST KIDDING.  I don't know why when I read Stella Artois Hans and Frans popped in my head though.

Yeah, but Stella is just for fancy courses and I don't do fancy.

Personally I think it tastes kind of skunky, same with Heineken and Becks.  I like craft beers, especially a nice porter or stout but if going more main stream brews I will take a Yuengling, Bass, Guinness (Stout) and occasionally, *gasp* can't believe I am going to admit to this, if it is really hot out and sunny, I'll drink a Miller Lite because beers with more body to them seem to be just a bit too heavy.  At that point it's more like drinkin a sodie pop.

I apologize then, but really all I was saying was why @Buckeyenut would want to know and probably why others omit it, Also I'm not trying to impose any standard on course difficulty to anyone, play wherever you want I don't care.

I thought this was LOL!

Even the not-so-fancy courses are carrying it on tap now up here in the Boston area. After buying Bud, they started pushing it.

Stella is OK when you've just played 18 in 90F weather. It is refreshing but not my first choice as a normal draught. After playing 18 on Tuesday in 55F weather, we went to a bar that had Newcastle on tap. That was nice.

Wait!  I did golf in the spring, summer, fall and bowling in the winter for 30 years! :-)

Yeah but you didn't mention that Florida winter is a cruel and hard 5 weeks with some occasional frosty ground.  Played Chi Chi Rodriguez yesterday morning, fun little track.

Chi Chi's can be fun.  Isn't that a par 69 or something?  Been a long time since I've played there.  Played a scramble there back in the 90's.

Yes it is a par 69. Has some holes that make you think, lots of doglegs. It was a good time.

I said that jokingly because since my son took to bowling, I've become a non-golfer when it comes to winter golf.   Today was sunny and 66 with light winds.........and I bowled!!  LOL
