Nice birdie on 11, really tough putt over a steep slope then down to the hole. 

 

Tick 1 more off.

I am in. 

I usually play 3 different courses throughout the year but the one I have chosen for the challenge is Johnson Park Golf Course;

scorecard.jpg

I am hopeful for an early spring here in SE Wisconsin so I can get started right away. 

The par 3's on the card (holes 6, 13 & 18) are going to be the biggest challenge.

Ticked off Hole #3 today with my Monday geezer walking group... the #1 hcp hole.  Nice high (for me) draw to middle of fairway, then a nice high (for anyone) draw to the middle of very firm green and a release to the back pin.  Made the 10 footer.

What was interesting was I don't normally hit a draw; straight or slight fade maybe, but wind from the right = draw.

I've now birdied 9/18 holes and it's early March!!!

You started this thread, so I guess you can do whatever you want.  😀

When the weather turns, suck it up and play... a lot!!

Looking at the spreadsheet, I better get some birdies in a hurry once  I start playing again which should be this weekend.  I don't make a ton of birdies, but I should be able to knock some off rather quick once I start playing.

I don't either.  I can go for a couple of weeks and not make a birdie; still shoot low 80's.  Then I will have a week when I make several.

Going stir crazy waiting for spring to come to Wisconsin so I can get started on this challenge.

On the bright side I had two birdies playing the Skytrak E6 version of Bay Hill today. My 79 would have put me one shot ahead of Jazz Janewattananond’s 1st round. Look out Jazz!

Northeast (Massachusetts anyway) we are pretty lucky! I have not had time yet to go out but today is 65! Spring is here....knock on wood. Was in vermont last weekend and there was maybe 4 inches there in certain spots. We deserve an early one after last year!

What say you @Lacassem!? I'm in for the birdie challenge.  Like @NoSpoon above I'll be playing Shining Rock as my home course here.

My home course: Shining Rock Golf Club, Northbridge, Massachusetts

Hole 1 | Par 4 | 411: Downhill slight dogleg left.  The approach shot here is challenging due to the slope of the back half of the green.  If the flag is back DO NOT try to fly it to the pin.
Hole 2 | Par 4 | 384: Everything feeds to the right on this hole which can make it difficult.  a long but skinny kidney bean shaped green guarded by deep bunkers and steep slopes required accuracy, as does the quick and sloped green.
Hole 3 | Par 5 | 504: Dog leg right par 5 which I can get on in two with a good tee shot.  A bad tee shot forces you to layup to a waste are which then still required a 150 yard shot.
Hole 4 | Par 4 | 282: Short with a dog-leg right.  Can get the ball on the green here off the tee, but large numbers and lost balls are had if you leak it right or don't make the forced carry.
Hole 5 | Par 3 | 219: Long par three on paper, but issues with the tee box have had it play consistently around 110-120 yards last year.  Much more difficult if the tee is back.
Hole 6 | Par 4 | 300: Short part 4 that turns to the right and goes uphill to a severely sloped two tier green which essentially splits the whole into two greens.  Stay below the hole.
Hole 7 | Par 4 | 290: Pretty short, uphill par 4.  Another treacherous green complex.  Don't be above the hole. 
Hole 8 | Par 3 | 148: Fairly simple uphill par 3.  Two tier green but not overly difficult.
Hole 9 | Par 5 | 485: A nice easy slightly turning right par 5 to end the front.  I have an albatross, and eagle, and multiple birdies here, so I think it suits my eye.
Hole 10 | Par 4 | 360: Stay middle or right on the fairway, and this straight par 4 is your friend.  There is OB right, and woods left... but they shouldn't be in play.
Hole 11 | Par 4 | 372: A gettable hole has a wide and generous fairway and a green that feels like one of the flatter ones on the course.
Hole 12 | Par 3 | 188: A large green for sure, but now much room to miss left, right, or long.  Another sloping green from back to front provides for some interesting long putts. 
Hole 13 | Par 5 | 478: A skinny par 5 that twists it way uphill to a nice green.  Club selection is key as approach shots from an uneven lie can be challenging.
Hole 14 | Par 4 | 345: A split fairway but otherwise fairly simple hole.  Better to be at pin high or short than long.
Hole 15 | Par 3 | 180: Wide open par 3 but a very tricky green with subtle bumps and breaks.
Hole 16 | Par 5 | 563: An absolute BEAST of a par 5.  My best tee shots require a wood on the second to reach the green.  The fairway narrows as you get to the green and steep drop offs long and right and woods left require accuracy on the approach.  Not going to lie, birdie here is exceptional, an eagle would be other worldly.

Hole 17 | Par 4 | 312: This plays short as it is straight and downhill.  I have driven the green and most approach shots are with wedge in hand.  I've got a better change at an eagle here than on 16.
Hole 18 | Par 4 | 375: Elevated tee and wide fairway that narrows with water on the right if you go too long.  The angle makes the approach more difficult than it should be, but the green is pretty simple.

Easiest holes for me: 3, 9, 11, 17

Hardest holes for me: 1, 6, 7, 16 

B gonna need you to start an excel sheet for this for us...I could but you know you would probably change it after anyway!

How many rounds are folks thinking it’s going to take them? I MIGHT get 10 rounds here at my local course this year. Most times I play on the road while working. If I can birdie all 18 in 10 rounds that will be a record and my handicap will be below 5!!!!

I could actually go back through all my scorecards to see if I could have a double bogey challenge.  I'm doing pretty well so far!!

I have a couple feet of snow on the ground still but its warming up, hopefully 4-6 weeks away from some actual golf. I am way late to this but I intend on challenging myself to this as well. There are 2 holes on my home course that if I par either it would be like a birdie or better to me.

Here is my course scorecard. Most rounds will be from the Blue tees since we don't set up the Black boxes unless their is a tournament or qualifier of some type. They generally just blend the Blue/Black box location each day instead.

So far I’ve birdied every hole I’ve played this year. They’ve all been in my head, but still! 
 

I hope we end up with enough time to have a chance at this!

Bumping this thread because 1) I just thought of it this morning, 2) it's been pretty dormant (understandably) since the lockdown, and 3) I'm hoping our course might open this week so I can start chasing some birdies!

For those new around here: I started a spreadsheet where we can track our progress toward birdying each hole on our home course (or parring each hole, or birdies+eagles on the par 5s, depending on your goals):  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1P9-C6rS1vIO44rYbPDqQgLlTxGxYQtsQHAs31t1j_sU/edit?usp=sharing

At this point, I would be happy to play the "play every hole" challenge.  I am in MD and we are one of 6 states remaining with no course openings.

Golf courses in Wisconsin opened 6 days ago.  I played in a scramble on Saturday but today is my first real round.  If the scramble is any indication of my current game I may be waiting another few weeks to post a birdie.  😢

This is a good one!  I like the "Birdie Every Hole" Challenge the best.  I think Par would be achieved much too quick to be a fun test.  

My "home" course if you will (well the one I play the most often) is Shenandoah Valley CC.  This course has 3 nines ... Blue, White, & Red nine.  For this exercise, we will assume I am playing the Blue/White 18 holes combination.  This course is not very long, depending on which combination of nines you play, it can range from 6100 to 6400 yards or so from the back set of tees.  It's main defense are the fairly large greens, long rough & trees off the fairways.  

Blue/White is a par 7, 6371 yards .... only 3 par 3's & 3 par 5's.  Blue nine starts off & ends with par 5's  ... so these are really good chances for a birdie right off the bat ... just 546 & 487 yards from the back tees, respectively,  with no real trouble unless you're off the fairway.  I have eagled both of those in the past.  #2 is a long par 3, downhill .... this would be a hard birdie most of the time because you have to hit it close or get lucky with a long putt.  It's a huge green.  But I hit it to a foot last week for a birdie ... so knock that one off the list.  LOL 🙂  #3 thru #5 are going to be tough birdies because, like a lot of the holes here, you have to hit it close on your approaches to really have a chance at birdie.  These are some really tough greens to not 3-putt because of their immense size.  

White 9 is straight forward ... just over 3,000 yards from the back.  #9 par 5 should be an easy birdie if you're hitting the ball well.  But it's usually my last hole & I'm always tired by then so it becomes difficult to birdie sometimes.  #3 is a 190 yard long, uphill shot so it plays longer than the card says most days.  It needs to be an accurate shot to have any chance.  #4 & #5 main defense are small, severely sloped greens, from left to right ... if you're not on the right side, you may have a hard time with Par, let alone Birdie.  #6 & #7 are definite birdie holes as long as you come off the tee box with no issues.  #8 par 3 of 188 yards is going to be tough.  Very small green from front to back, so it takes precision to get it close.  

There are some definite birdie holes on this course I can already cross off the list from my round last week.  But there are some that may take me awhile to birdie.  It's going to be a fun challenge nonetheless.
