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 can't believe I haven't seen this thread before now. I've been doing this since the start of the year. I haven't gotten to play much because of all the rain in MS, but here is my progress through 4 or 5 rounds.
