Last year I sunk birdies on 17 holes on my home course - missing (of course) #18.

Fourth birdie of this year came on #18.  A great dog left left par 5 that curves around a pond, with a forced carry either for your 2nd or 3rd shot (always the third for me) having to carry a marsh and another pond, landing on a green that pitches forward but has three distinct areas.  This time it was the front left of the triangle shaped green, with a slope behind it to keep the approach shot in place.  A nice 6 or 7 footer to curl in.  Nice to have that one out of the way. Tough enough getting to 18 and keeping it together to cap a good round - but pushing for birdie can sometimes be detrimental.

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:

Well, in 2020 I missed birdies on 2 holes... #7 and #10; both par 4's uphill into the prevailing wind.

In 2021 I birdied both of those holes more than once!!  However, I failed to birdie our #5 hole, the longest par 5 at 550 yards; also plays into the prevailing wind.

This year I also kept track of which holes I birdied the most and which holes I had double bogey or worse.  I could have guessed correctly without keeping track, but it was clear that my best scores are on #2 and #16, both short par 4's, and my worse scores were on the short-ish par 4 #3 hole ranked as #1 handicap and my nemesis hole the dogleg left par 5 #18 which plays into the wind off the tee; leaving a difficult shot around the dogleg and all kinds of trouble by the green.

Maybe in 2022 I can birdie them all, but might have to move up to the Senior tee to do it.

I missed one hole (#16)at my club that closed 7/31/21. I had birdies on 8 holes at my new club, 8/1/21 through December. That included an Eagle on the par 5 #9.

2022 will be different as I will be out several months with shoulder surgery next week.

This was tracked for our league play and there were two holes that had me by the .... and I didn't birdie them.  One was a par 5 that should be a 10' putt for birdie every time.  Its a 3 shot 90* dogleg par 5 so no hitting it in two for me.  The third shot is usually 90 - 100 yards and I should have a few birdies there but a few early lip outs and I am sure it got in my head the rest of the year!  The other is a par 4 with a similar distance 2nd shot but with a bunker in front & the slope of the green makes it very difficult to get anything to stay close to the hole.  It is usually a 20 - 25' putt with lots of break that I gladly take par and move on.  There is one flat spot on the front of the green where they never put the pin until winter play starts.
