First full 18 hole round I played was during 1999.  June or July that year, I broke 100 for the first time.  Broke 90 the following year, in August, 2000.  Broke 80 in June, 2002.

Have not broken 70 yet, low round is 73 (par 71), done twice.  I've managed to be under par on the front nine, but that's as far as I've gotten.

I didn't have the opportunity to play golf regularly until I started caddying in 8th grade (age 14).  I first broke 100 late that summer.  I broke 90 the following summer and 80 the summer after that.  I've broken par for 9 holes (-2 is my lowest, and I've been -1 a few times), but I've never broken par for 18 holes on a "real" golf course.  +1 is my best so far.  

These days I play quite a bit of golf on a 4600 yard par 66 executive course with a course rating of 62.4/105.  I've shot 65 there a couple of times, but I'd need to shoot 62 or less to consider that a special round.

Really never played golf outside of messing around at the range until I was 16/17. A football injury took me out of all my regular sports and I was working at a golf course so I really jumped in. Broke 100, 90, and 80 within the next year. Broke 70 for the first time when I was 19 and maybe 4 times total over the next two years (at fairly easy courses I’ll admit). Gave up the game for about 5 years at 21, then while living in Korea I became a fairly hardcore screen golfer (simulator rooms). I was a +2 handicap at that, but it really is a different game.
Shot 71 (-1) last month, that’s the closest I’ve been to the sixties on a full sized course since my university days. Hopefully have one to post about again soon.
