Testers Wanted: Star Grips! √ó

Ouch - superintendent's revenge tourney...

Recommended Posts

Had a 3 man scramble at our club on Sunday - glorious day of high in the low 50's w/ winds in the teens.¬†ūü§£¬†Then, to make it even better, it was a superintendent's revenge tourney with flags in the absolute toughest spots, some greens mowed twice, some not mowed at all.¬†


We tied for fourth at -6, in a three man scramble with a 3.7, 4.0 and 4.1 hdcps respectively. First place was three plus handicappers that finished -10. It was that tough. 


By far the hardest greens conditions I've ever played on - just no way to plan for it even when you knew where the pins were because every green had different speeds with the mowing differences. They absolutely killed it this year with all of that. Was fun overall and minus the brisk day, definitely enjoyed ourselves. 


This was the hole location/green speed on #10. We escaped with a bogey after almost driving the green on the par 4 but it took a slam dunk to get it to go in, otherwise the ball came back to your feet because of the severe slope and the hole was on top of a ridge that broke left/right on each side of the hole. The pro said the scoring average was a double-bogey. LOL 


Apologies ahead of time for the language.¬†ūüėČ

My old course had Greens Keeper Revenge Day. Fun at times but brutal at the same time. I did it one year and that was enough for me. Humbling experience.

I love it!  I have played in one and it can be brutal.  I have played courses that a few holes have been almost unplayable unless you make it just like your video!  You just have to laugh and think the super is just cracking up all day.
