I voted 500-1000. When I've played, I've played a LOT of golf. One summer I averaged 36 holes a day, every day of the summer… including days that were rained out or we weren't allowed to play.

I might never top 5000.

I found this topic when I was searching for “most rounds of golf in a lifetime”

I honestly might set the record for all time

Im currently 35 years old, and for past 3 years ive averaged 300+ rounds per year, and I can keep that up for the rest of my life barring any major injury. I wont ever have kids, so I don’t need to worry about that

Heres my exactly round total since 2006. I used to have the data before that but the hard drive crashed so I would have to estimate. In college, I also averaged 300+ rounds per year

 

2006

155

2007

180

2008

153

2009

188

2010

157

2011

211

2012

178

2013

197

2014

212

2015

237

2016

311

2017

304

2018

332

2019

31

 

 

So this total is 2846

 

I didn’t play golf at all before the age of 16 (1999), so my best guess to fill in the data would be

2000: 40

2001: 40

2002: 150 (started college)

2003: 250

2004: 300

2005: 300

What happened in 2006 was that I graduated and had to work a regular job. That sucked

Now I work for myself and can do what I want again

So grand total (estimated): 2846 + 1080 = 3926

I've played 126 in the two previous years.  Prior to that I didn't keep track of rounds, scores etc.   I would say 350 at most.   Golf wasn't a priority until I retired.  I played just a bit in a league prior to retirement but didn't really commit to any kind of improvement.

1000-5000 was my selection.

I averaged 150 rounds per year over just the last 7 years and I've played 360 different courses with a lot I've played multiple times.  So I would guess I have played around 3000 rounds of golf in my lifetime (37 years).

Boy, the tests are hard in this class.

50-100 rounds a year for the last 20 years. So 1000 rounds at least

from age 23-27 (before the wife and kids) I probably played 200+ rounds a year. So 1000 rounds approximately. 

So I would guess I am somewhere around 2000 rounds or maybe a bit more.

So I voted 1000-5000. I hope someday to pass the 5000 mark!

100 rounds per year for the last 10 years or so.  Probably 50ish per year for the 5 years prior to that, and call it 20ish per year for another 30 years.  Gotta be closing in on 2,000 rounds...

1,000 - 5,000 is a ridiculously huge range.  The vast majority of players, even relatively avid players, won’t play 1,000 in their lives...

Since I joined a club (25 years or so) I've averaged in the range of 75 to 80 rounds of golf.  so between 1500 and 2000 there.  Add the previous 20 years playing, maybe I averaged 40 to 50 rounds, so another 800 to 1000.  I'd say 2500 is a reasonable estimate.

Last year is the first one that I played a lot since the late 80s. So I am guesstimating between 100-500.

About 900 rounds (884 for which I have tracked stats) since 2011, and easily 100 rounds or more before that as I started around 2000, so definitely over 1000 but probably much less than 1500. 

5000 is a huge number, e.g. 50 rounds a year (or once a week), for 100 years!  More likely 2 rounds a week for 50 years, still a huge number.

I actually am surprised on the high side.  The two web sites I have used to log scores show 623 and there must be another 30 I never logged.  I'll be playing 10 years on Labor Day.  If I hadn't looked I would have guessed 550.  I did have one year between jobs where I played over 100 times and I am currently playing +80 times a year, so I will break 1000 in a few years.

I haven't played near as such golf in my early golfing days (Kid-mid 20's) as I have the last few years. I should safely have over 100 round played, but doubt I have hit 200 yet. probably around 150 rounds or so.

I updated my vote in poll. Definitely over 100 now given that I have played close to 50 rounds in the past two years.

I played my first 9 holes in the summer of 1961.  I didn't really play more than 3 or 4 nine hole rounds from then until 1974, when I suddenly caught the disease.  For the next 15 years, I estimate about 25 rounds per year on average.  Some weekends we'd play 72 holes in 2 days, but it averaged out to about 1 round per week from March-October.  In 1989 I joined the Men's Club at my home course and then I started playing more often.  I worked a lot of swing shifts and played often in the morning before work.  My play bumped up to 40-50 rounds per year until I retired in 2006.  Then I started working at the course as a starter and for the next 5 years I played around 100 times per year.

Altogether it puts me somewhere over 1500 rounds, but it could easily be an error of +/- 300.  I never really considered trying to keep track, and for most of my life, there was no electronics or cloud storage to help with that.

I average 3.5 rounds a week. Playing for 10 years now, so that makes more then 1500 but less then 2000 rounds.

I played every day possible, often 2 rounds, from the age of 13 until 20.  I thought that'd get me up there but that's nudging 2k.  Then real life took over and I had to go to work.  Perhaps when I retire it'll get back on track with a short 40-yr diversion in the middle, but with fishing and hunting I'm not sure... hard to juggle that many responsibilities.

Not exactly sure but I have been playing for 49years.  So, well over 5000 rounds. In the past 13 years, I would guess I have averaged somewhere between 150 to 165 rounds.  Last year, I played 198 rounds.  Not bad for a guy with a full time job. 🤤
