Was wondering what the golfers here usually shoot when they make it out to the course.

I don't have the right pants to play golf.

I heard it was some outrageous number of people who shoot over 100, like 95+%.

I certainly don't see that with my friends, but who knows.

i think last time i went golfing with my roommate, he shot around 100 on the front 9
Link Posted: 8/7/2005 10:13:43 PM EDT
When I was playing 2-3 times a week, I was in the low 80's. Took me about a year to get to that point.

Now I shoot 90-95. Play about 3-4 times a year.

The best I ever played, I was shooting in the mid 80s. That run lasted a few weeks (thankfully it included a trip to Monterey where I got to play some pretty nice courses compared to what's available locally). It seems like I'll get out and golf every week for a month at a time, then go on a 2 month break, then come back and play so poorly I don't want to take score

I just drive the little car and drink beer, occasionally stopping to hit the ball into the adjoining houses.

I wasn't aware you were supposed to keep score, except for houses hit.

I average 3 or 4 per round of drinking, er....golf.

When I was playing weekly mid 70's, now mid 80's. Got a company tournament coming up in 10 days, one of the yearly things thats always good to play well in, but I haven't been playing at all this year. I'm supposed to be one of the "ringers", looks like I may let some people down this year unless I can get some range time in soon......

I shoot at the beer cart girl if she doesn't "re-supply" quick enough.
Link Posted: 8/8/2005 1:40:34 AM EDT
Thats for 9 holes right?
Link Posted: 8/8/2005 1:56:22 AM EDT
i have only played around 6-7 times
Link Posted: 8/8/2005 2:17:52 AM EDT
I would probably play 5 over consistently except then I have to putt..........

It really depends on the course. Set me out on a par 69, 104 slope and I can go low. Send me to a par 72, 135 slope track and I'll get chewed.
Link Posted: 8/8/2005 3:10:09 AM EDT
I usually between 74 and 78. My handicap is a 4.2 right now.
Link Posted: 8/8/2005 3:21:51 AM EDT
The best two balls I ever hit, were when I stepped on a bunker rake.

If I want to go outside and drink beer I'll set a cooler down by the lawn chair.

Lately, I've been shooting somewhere
around 80 on my home course. I shot
a 78 on Saturday.
Link Posted: 8/8/2005 4:14:40 AM EDT
I play 3-4 times a year. If I break 100, I had fun, but was probably more sober than I would have liked.

Link Posted: 8/8/2005 6:23:48 AM EDT
I shoot right around 100, but I actually count every shot and I only get out 1 or 2 times a year.
Link Posted: 8/8/2005 6:30:59 AM EDT
I don't play much anymore, but playing by the strictest rules I would shoot 88-90.

No mulligans. No "foot wedges". No lift and place. Correct penalties for a lost ball. Correct penalties for OB. No gimmes.

I played with other guys who routinely put 85's on their scorecards, but when I counted strokes, BY THE RULES, they were in the 100's.

When I play now I shoot around 101-105...I just can't seem to keep my drives in the course now.

I had heard that as well, and found it hard believe. I figured arfcom would be a good general reprsentation of the avg. golfer.

I make it out to the course about once every 2 weeks. My last 3 rounds have been 82, 82, 86. I shot my best round ever about a month ago, a 79. I play with penalties, no mulligans, no gimmees. I do however "lift and place" sometimes, usually to clean the ball.

I once shot a 76.

Didn't let that get me down. Went ahead and played the back 9.

I stink. I usually shoot in the low 90's.

But I have lots of fun.

Playing on the VPI course doesn't count.

Usually around 78 to 80, played by the rules.
Link Posted: 8/8/2005 10:04:37 AM EDT
I play the ball down. Handicap would be around 8. Despite the fact that I strike the ball better than ever, I rarely have time to play. I miss it.

I suck at golf.. but how many golfers can shoot .25 MOA??

Send the golfers to WAR!!!

Yup that about sums it up. If I score CORRECTLY, I usually get right around 103.

If I play on what is left of the "Old" Tech course I will shoot 68, when The River Course at Virginia Tech reopens, I will probaly struggle to break 80. From the back tees it will be 7,800 yards long.

Right now I play most of my golf at Great Oaks in Floyd, Draper Valley in Pulaski and Greene Hills in Stanardsville.

So they're redoing the VPI course? The last time I played there (3 years ago or so) I remember talk of using half the course for campus expansion. I figured with all the money going into that area there would be a new course opening.

Draper is a nice course. A little windy though. Two friends and I once went up and played it in early March. Played 36 on Friday and 18 on Saturday morning. Friday the temp was around 40 with that usual Wytheville winds. That was fun.

They are using half of the old course on campus for a hotel and alumni center and they may use the rest within the next 5-10 years. Two years ago Tech bought the River Course in Fairlawn and renamed it "The River Course at Virginia Tech" and it has since been re designed by Pete Dye. I is supose to reopen sometime soon (within the next week or so). It has been closed since Labor Day of '04. It was a nice course before being resigned.

Any word on what green fees will be? I'm sure they will have quite an increase over what the old course cost.

From what I remember from the last time I played it was $45/round, I have heard a variety of things from $50 all the way to $80 so I don't know what to believe, but I do know, what ever the price, it will be hard to get a tee time for a while.
Link Posted: 8/8/2005 1:05:09 PM EDT
I would guess it will be more like $80 with Dye involved.

That's a shame. I just love how they price everyone off the course so the bigwigs can have the place to themselves.

Link Posted: 8/8/2005 1:16:56 PM EDT
I've been, in the past, a mid-to-high 70's guy. That was when I was playing weekly or better.

I degraded into a low to mid 80's guy when I started playing a little less, say twice a month.

I played about a month ago for the first time in a few years, and managed a 97. I think I could be in the high 80's on a second round, as I didn't go to the range beforehand and it took me a while to work things out.

I was downright pleased with it, I expected to be alot worse after that kind of layoff...

At least they're giving students discounts. But then probably more than making up for it in student activity fees.

Have you ever played "Ole Mill" aka Groundhog mountian near Hillsville? That is a real nice course, one of the best in the area, IMHO. I played there last Thursday, shot 79 with 4 three putts.

Engelside or something like that. Still have the card around here somewhere. I was on business in Lexington for a week, only course I could find online for the area.

That is a shame, there are a lot more courses in the area, there is one in Buena Vista, and if you drive 25 minutes further to Harrisonburg you could have played Lake View.

Student discounts here are pretty good during the spring, $10 off on weekdays, $6 on weekends.
You can get a semester pass where you just pay cart fees for $325/semester.

That was the fee on the campus course before they put a hotel on it. I doubt that the student fees on The River Course will be below $35
