    Golf

    Unfortunately, I've never played golf, but going to start and was curious what most CF'ers score. I know par is 72, but I also know that most people don't score any where near that.

    Re: Folf

    I'll shoot anywhere from 90 to 110 depending on the difficulty of the course...I consider myself a crappy golfer. Depends how bad I get eaten alive on the par 3's.

    Re: Golf

    I haven't played in years. When I was playing quite a bit in the mid 1990's I was shooting low 90s with an occasional 88 or 89

    Re: Golf

    If you are just starting, then breaking 100 is a good goal.

    Also, do yourself a favor: learn the rules, and score yourself properly, every time. You will get a much better read on how you are improving, and it will be much more satisfying when you finally break 100 (and 90, etc.).

    Most of all: Have fun!

    EDIT: I am a 15, so breaking 90 is my goal these days. I shot 88 on back-to-back days last weekend, so I'm feeling good about my improvement so far this season.

    Re: Golf

    80-85 usually. Over 85 would be a very bad day or a pretty tough course. Below 80 happens once in a while but I'm to busy to be consistently that low.

    Re: Golf

    My best round was a 72. Usually in the low 80's


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Know the rules and always be aware of course etiquette.

    Welcome to the most frustrating game of your life.
