2020 Birdie Every Hole Challenge


Recommended Posts

This is an idea I first heard about from the guys at No Laying Up and just today Andrew Jensen
. I'm proposing a MyGolfSpy Birdie Every Hole on Your Home Course Challenge for the 2020 season!
The challenge is simple: during the course of the year, you have to record a birdie on each hole at your home course. (I suppose it doesn't have to be your home course: if you visit a new track and shoot a 54, that would count as well.)
Start posting now with a summary of the challenge in front of you. What's the layout of your course? What holes are the easy birdies, and which are the holes you're least likely to birdie?
And to make sure no one's left out, there are two side categories:
  • The Par Every Hole at Your Home Course Challenge (PEHaYHC)
  • The Birdie Every Hole Except the Par 5s Which You Have to Eagle Challenge (BEHEP5WYHtE)
Let us know which category you're entering, and let's see who can get it done this season!
EDIT: I've whipped up a simple scoreboard to keep track of the birdies as they roll in! Use your forum name, pick your category (pars, birdies, or birdie/eagles), and put an "x" in the box when you accomplish your goal for each hole: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1P9-C6rS1vIO44rYbPDqQgLlTxGxYQtsQHAs31t1j_sU/edit?usp=sharing

Our golf group has done this for years as a “Ringer” competition on each course.... it’s amazing to see how low the scores are by year end!! I’ve never simply counted to see if each hole has been birdied!

... I had 17 holes checked off in August but #7 remained elusive. A 431 yd par 4 that is uphill for the second shot and usually into a 10-20 mph prevailing wind making it play more like 475 or longer. You never feel the full force of the wind til you get to the green so it is extremely difficult to choose the right club. 3 times this Sumer it played downwind and I had 3 birdie putts of 20 feet or more but did not make any of them. Finally made a birdie with very little wind when I hit my 17* Super Hybrid as well as I can hit it and hoped it would be close because you can't see the green from your second shot. Looked to be about 5-8 feet right of the pin but it must have caught the slope because it was about 6" left of the hole for a tap in. Probably played there 50 times this year and this was the only truly makable putt. Whew!

I am at 9 right now.  Looking at the score card, I am going to need some magic to get the other 9.  Although I have the one I thought to be impossible for me checked off already. Number 7, something about that hole just doesn’t suit my eye.  It’s an easy hole, I just hit it Near the OB right behind some trees, makes it hard to get home in 3... Par 5.

i have 3 more... but they are from November of last year.  FY or CY I still don’t make it! Haha.

I feel like I've been absent from this thread for a couple of months, but I finally got one more over the weekend, with a chip-in birdie 3 on the long downhill 8th at Stoneleigh.  Two more to go, #9 (short sharp dogleg left par 4) and #14 (420-yard downhill par 4).

Now that I'm back on the course, I ticked off two additional holes over the weekend. Birdied the 7th by making a long putt after getting on in regulation, and birdied the 5th (index 1 hole) by hitting an incredible drive, setting up the opportunity to hit a wedge in. Got it close and made the putt.

 

With my ones remaining, there is a par 5 that is only a matter of time before a birdie happens (there have been many close birdie putts). Some of the others are looking less likely.

One left and it has been my Achilles this year.  Have made par from the most improbable places in 3 years past; but for whatever reason I'm stuck.

I didn't jump in the challenge, but chiming in anyway.  Friend of mine got me started checking holes off "The List" when I started playing with him a dozen years ago.  In 2020, I have holes 3, 11, and 13 left.  

11 is a 380 yd par 4, elevated green (20-25 feet), oblong/oval shape green from back left to front right, with a couple ugly slopes.  13 is a 175 par 3 with a large green, sloped with tricky small undulation.

And #3, a 120 yd downhill par 3 with water left, long, and front right, and a 40 yd wide green.  I've missed any number of birdie putts there, including a lipped out six footer just before our snow storm a few weeks ago.  Of all the holes....

Still have two rounds left.  So I got that going for me.  Which is nice.

Not sure how many rounds I’ll still be able to play with the weather here in WI but it looks like I’m going to fall one hole short in my birdie challenge.

The most frustrating part is the hole isn’t even all that difficult. 412 yard par 4 that’s rated as the 5th toughest hole on the course. I’ve had plenty of chances at birdie but just wasn’t able to make any putts on the tough green.

Oh well. Maybe next year!

Played quite well on the whole today. Made 3 birdies but made one on a new hole. An eagle putt on another hole grazed the edge.

 

Longest par 3, hit a 5 iron to inside 3 feet. Also won $40 from a nearest to the pin competition.

I never got my last 2 holes; #7 and #10, both par 4 uphill and usually into the wind.  I have birdied them both many times, but not this year!!  So many misses.  Those holes are difficult for me, but they are not my hardest holes.  I didn't keep track but I know that I lipped out 8+ putts on those holes; two weeks ago I had a 6 foot uphill slight R to L putt that did a 360 stopping on the edge of the hole.  I even lipped out a chip shot.

I'm not sure I want to do this challenge again in 2021.  Every time I got to these holes, I knew I had to birdie them.  Poor tee shot or missed green means no birdie, and I had one or the other most of the time.

I'll look to get a new sheet up for the new year early in the next week. Even though I am kinda bitter 🙂

Finished the year 1 short. Par 4 15th, 450 yards. My final round missed the green pin high right, downhill chip was looking great, thought it would be dead centre but broke sharply in the last 3 feet to just slide by. Looking forward to the challenge in 2021, although the wa I’m playing I’d probably settle for pars.

So during the winter here in Yuma, AZ, I play pretty much the same 5 course - and two of them about twice as much as the others.  On those two courses I have birdies on 8 holes on one course and 6 holes on the other.  There are several holes on each course that wind direction and an out of body experience would be needed. This is a really tough contest 😬.

Added a new 2021 tab in the spreadsheet. I'm not assuming that everyone who was in last year is continuing this year, so you'll have to add your name and goal (either Birdie every hole, Par every hole, or Birdies+Eagles on the par 5s) again this year:
