    A bit of luck involved though: for example for me, two hole outs from the fairway and an ace.

    Either we have a lot of monster hitters here or we have a bunch of short par 5's. That's a lot of par 5 eagles I keep seeing. I've been as low as a 2 handicap and can only remember 1-2 eagles in my 8 years of playing.



    And eagles on par 4's? Dang, either guys are smashing the ball 350 yards a pop, the par 4's are under 300 or people are super accurate with approaches. I've driven 1 par 4 (birdie) in 8 years and never had a hole out for an eagle.



    I have had 2 aces though.

    -25 on a par 72. I've birdied every hole at some point. Out of the 5 par 5's, I've eagled 4 of them. And eagles on 3 of the par 4's, one driveable, two by holing out from the fairway.

    For me it’s just sheer number of rounds played and accurate approach shots. I’ve also got the advantage of a low ball flight so my ball tends to release more than most peoples, giving it a higher % chance of getting lucky and going in. I’ve had an albatross and 3 HIO in the last 2 seasons. None of my par 4 eagles are <90 yard approach shots.

    Agreed. When you have logged a few hundred rounds at a course, you get some lucky shots. It's pretty cool to look back on the aggregation of those shots through the years.

    After 8 years of being a member at my club, -28 on a 72, so 44.



    Aced all but 1 of the 4 par threes, eagled all 4 par 5s and some hole outs on some of the 4s. Typically play the course at 7243 (75.1/136) and have been a low single to +1 over those 8 years.

    -21, have birdied all 3's and 4's, eagled 3 of the 4 par 5's. One par 5 is 580, so would need to pitch in for the eagle there.

    Still working on bird for the other 9 holes. No eagles yet either.

    Career Best Ball - that is what I have always called it.



    Didn't know other golfers kept track of such things. I actually have a scorecard for each of the three courses I have played a lot since retiring 8 years ago where I keep the "best ball" for each hole. It is really a joy everytime that I can come home and mark a new score. Last time was a hole out from 141 yds on the number 2 handicap hole for an eagle - made my day for sure.



    I play 200+ rounds/year and usually between 6000-6600 yds. Although turned 72 recently so thinking of playing some rounds from the forward tees - that might allow me to reach a couple of the par 5's that are out of my current range.



    -24 on par 72 (Avery Ranch - 3 par 5's - one of which I have yet to eagle)

    -24 on par 72 (Shadowglen - only ace was here)

    -22 on par 72 (Teravista - don't play this one nearly as often)

    My superscore would be -22 (50). Oddly, there are two par 5's that I don't recall having ever eagled, but I have eagled two of the par 4's. No hole in one's for me ever, so I have 14 birdies and 4 eagles.
  • gretchgretch Posts: 806
    Usually just lurk in these threads but it is kind of fun to think about and since I went to the effort of adding it up..



    -24 at current home course I have been at for 3 years, but there was a course that I not only helped build, but went on to be a member at for another 10+ years that a -32(40) would be career best ball. 12 eagles, a double, and 5 birdies. I would guess I have played the course north of 1000 times.

    If you took the best score you ever made from each hole on the same course,what would your score be at the end of the round?

    Mine would be a 65(-5). I know, weak, but that is mine.




    53 par is 71

    This number is definitely not indicative of my skill level, but I’ve birdied almost every hole and had one lone eagle ever.

    Dang, your superscore would be hard to top. I'm a member of my home course for 19 years and I just calculated my superscore to be -33 under par. Likewise, nearly all of my par 4 eagles has released forward into the hole. I'm a lowballer too. :-)

    I am not 100% sure - but I believe my career ringer score is 43 on a par 72. I am not counting one par 4 hole-out for eagle as I think it was in a scramble (off of my tee ball). Most of the rounds were played at around 6500 prior to 2007. Since then, at 6900. My handicap has been, for the most part, plus or scratch for 25 years. I have eagled all the 5's numerous times, have one hole in one, and numerous par 4 eagles. (Like I assume others here have done - I have numerous holes with very near misses, including for double eagle and aces on the other 3's) It's largely about skill and opportunities. If you play a lot at the same course for years - and are a decent player - you should have a good score.



    "Ringer" Event:



    Back in the 90's we had a season long event - a ringer format - where members, for a small fee ($5 or $10) recorded their birdies or better on a sheet in the pro shop. It was limited to weekend rounds to keep it somewhat fair in regards to opportunities. The first member to birdie all the holes won the money. Anyway, my club is going to bring this back for the coming 2018 season. But it will be limited to 8 or 10 weekend tournament rounds (only). They will pay low gross and low net scores for the season. Using the GHIN tournament scoring program Golf Genius / TPP (Golf Genius is an updated TPP) makes it easy as it calculates the scores for you. All you have to do is enter hole by hole scores for those specific rounds in the program and select those rounds for the season long competition. Consider it for your club. Should be interesting. I was fortunate to win the old one numerous times. But securing the last one can be difficult.



    Happy New year to all!

    52, 20 under par at my home course. The only two eagles I've had on it were hole outs for 2's on 2 par 4's, both within about a week of each other. Real interesting to look at the best you have done on each hole and dream about doing it all on the same day.
