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.

This is an idea I first heard about from the guys at No Laying Up and just today Andrew Jensen posted a YouTube video on it. I'm proposing a MyGolfSpy Birdie Every Hole on Your Home Course Challenge f

Too much to type every hole on my phone but we do this every year at my club and it is called “The Ringer”. I won it last year with a score of -23 for the year on a par 71 course. I birdied every hole

I'm in for birdies/eagles again. Fell short on eagles last year but did get all the birds.

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

For those new around here in the last couple months: feel free to join in! The spreadsheet is editable by all, so add you name, set your goal, and start tracking your progress!

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.

I get to count the birdies I already made right? I've birdied the 2 hardest holes on the course this year already!

This should be fun. Will be trying for BEHEP5WYHtE, although 1 par 5 is almost impossible to eagle.

155 rounds with Arccos at my home club, 95% from white tee. Numbers below. Will struggle to eagle # 3 even though it is 408 yards long. If you can get it 200 yards off the tee it leaves you in the 250 range. Just a goofy par 5. 2, 4 & 14 are the hard birdies. I have already birdie 4 & 14 so check those off.

I use lowercase x for birdie and X for eagle, since it's the big bird.  I actually had to update mine, finally got a bird on #5 and eagled #18 to close out Saturday.

I've played two rounds this year and had a total of six birdies.  Luckily all 6 of them have come on different holes so I'm alread 33% done with the challenge.  I have a sinking feeling that I'm going to get up to 14 or 15 pretty quickly and then get stuck on those last few holes.

I’ve played 5 rounds so far this year, and I’ve birdied, 6 out of the 18 I need. So far, so good. I *think* I should get to 13-15 rather soon, but there are about 3 holes that are *really* going to be challenge for me.

Just use X for everything. The sheet is designed only to count X's in your percentage. Some guys are using big X vs. small x, which is fine.

Went on a roll for a bit but that will slow down considerably as I made the choice to not re-up my membership for the time being as the course is just too crowded these days.  Maybe it will let up since Oregon is starting to open a few things back up.  Time will tell.
