Copper Creek seems to have the lowest Course Rating and Slope that I've ever seen.

It is a short but tight par 69 at altitude. Was a par 70 but they converted the 10th hole to a 3 par after too many people were hitting the houses with their tee shots. It has some good holes like the 218 yard #3, 441 #4, 264 #9, 192 #10, 553 #11, 438 #16 & 415 #18, so it is not a push over for those that spray the ball.

Tournament - 82 Casual - 80 (seven times) Yes, I'm still trying to break 80.

What's your price?

76 from the blues at Springbank Links (Par 72).

Yeah, I just looked at the layout on my gps app. It's extremely short (5100 yards or something) but looks tight enough to warrant a higher slope rating I would guess.

5880 from the tips, 5517 from the blue and 4972 from the whites. It is at altitude, but there are 6 par 3s, so not as short as some might think just looking at the yardage. There are hazards/LB or OB on just about every hole, sometimes on both sides. Guys who are consistently accurate can shoot career bests, but wild hitters might have to buy more balls at the turn. I think the course record is a 62.

My lowest is a 70. It was when I just finished up high school and my swing was in great form. I was playing at my local track which I knew really well and started off on fire. I shot something ridiculous on the front nine, I think it was a 33 or something in that ballpark. I let it go a little bit on the back because I distinctly remember bogeying the last 3 holes of the home stretch- I think I got a little chubby on the 16th when I started counting strokes before the round was over. I wish I would've ended it with a spectacular putt like you see on tour but the three-putt bogey is was sealed the deal on my best-ever round. Someday I'll break 70, I just hope that day comes sooner than later.

Lowest score and over par: 72 (1 over)  September 2013 at Center Square Golf club in PA. Chipped in from just off the green for an eagle on a par 5 and had 1 birdie. Otherwise it was just steady golf of 4 bogeys and 12 pars. I lipped out a mid-length putt on 18 for the even par round but was just fine with 1 over.

Beat that on Friday July 17th, 2015. 1 under 69 at Bella Vista golf course in Gilbertsville, PA. My first time ever breaking 70 and/or shooting under par. It was from the white tee's but that is fine with me. I end up playing the whichever tee's the people I get paired up with are playing (unless they are playing up further than the 'mens' tee's).

I countered that with a crowd pleasing 90 when meeting up with a guy I have known through work for 10'ish years now. Never met him and really looked forward to it. Unfortunately my game got left behind. It might have had something to do with playing 5.5 rounds in 7 days. Oh well, I still had a great time and today starts a new week.

That's a fun course; my high school golf coach works/worked there. 79 for me. Only time I've broken 80 so far, but I've gotten close a few times this year.

Great post !! I started golfing out of high school, i was never interested until after a friend asked me to join! Its been 6 years as a weekend golfer and im starting to shoot excellent/honest scores. My first year golfing was 90-100+. Second and third year i started to improve,shooting in the 80s occasionally.i was stuck in the 80s for a couples years but it wasnt untill this year when i started hitting excellent scores . My average round in 2015 is 78. I have gotten as low as 71 at riverside golf course in fenton mo.

I've shot 74 four times, but only once on a Par 72 (Man O'War, Myrtle Beach).

I think my best round ever, however, was a 78 from the tips at Butlers Lakeside (Elizabeth PA) when I had a 9 on a Par 4, and an 8 on a Par 5.  Shot -2 on the other 16 holes.

73 (CR72.5/134) in competition

69 (CR72,3/139) casual round

My best ever round is a 70 (par 72) where i caught some unbelievable bad breaks on 14,15 and a silly 3putt on 16 to make 3 bogeys and finish par par on 17 and 18

Competition: 79 Casual: 78 Hardly remember the casual round, but the competition round was my first time breaking 80. I've only done it 3 times in my life. It was about 40 years ago when I was about a 14 hdcp. I had no idea I was playing so well until the guy keeping score says at the turn "Damn, you parred the front nine" My game came back and I shot 43 on the back for 79. I've always wondered how long it would have taken to come out of my par shooting trance if he hadn't told me I parred the front. I didn't even realize it......one birdie, one bogey, and seven pars. Now days, I'm trying to stay under 100.

Yesterday at my club I played 9 holes with an older member from the forward tees...32.4/107 and shot a 39!

The differential equals a 42 from the middle tees I usually play....but it sure sounds and feels better!

I liked reading through this thread. Very cool to see peoples stories. Best casual round was a 67 on a 72, either last summer or two summers ago. Was a pretty short easy course. I play better in tournaments. More focused or something. Best tournament round?... Score wise I've shot 68 (-4) twice. But I wouldn't consider those my best rounds. I shot a -2 70 on a 75.8/149 7350 yard course in a professional event last year and I was tied 15th after the first day. That was a +4.2 differential which is probably my lowest ever. Don't ask what happened on day 2 of the tourney ;)

I can only really count my best front 9's, which area quite a few 41's. I usually play late on an evening so hardly warm up and cock up the first hole and usually end up rushing the last 4-5 holes if I want to complete the 18 (which is never good for me). This usually inflates my 18 hole scores a fair bit. I've had a few 55's from 12 and then been gutted I didn't have time to do the 18 :( Think my best 18 is an 87, I know I'm better than that.

I think I'll get a 39 for 9 holes before the end of August, which is another step on my way to breaking 80.

    • One of the people who introduced me to golf in the first place would regularly do things that are generally bad etiquette:  try to make me mad during the round, talk during my swing, etc.  The good news is that now, when someone does things like making noise while I'm swinging my accident, it doesn't annoy me unless they're trying to mess me up (which no one has done, at least to my knowledge).
    • In OK, schools are not legally allowed to require masks, even for those who are too young to get vaccinated.  😞 I'm glad to hear that the vaccine can make keys stick to your head.  Maybe it will work on the five simple keys from a while back?  
    • And almost as if Florida is trying to double down on it, -->   Being a resident of SW Missouri, I guess I shouldn't throw stones.  It's almost like they're having a competition, except they've forgotten that LSW.
    • Day 1: Starting over because I keep forgetting to post. More chipping/pitching COVID-19 drills with new wedges. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron. 
    • My usual dbl bogie- bogie- bogie start till the back let me swing. Settled in and was 4 over at the turn after an additional bogie nullified by a bird.  Was even on the back till we hit a log jam on the tee of 15. lost concentration and bogied in. 80.  I would like to add, I wasn't having a particularly  good ball striking day. I could have easily shot a lot worse, but the forgiveness of the T300s and a good day with the flat stick kept me out of the mid 80s.
