I swear I'm not trying to sandbag...
I play the Disney Oak Trail 9 hole course twice a week before work with the first or second tee time of the day. Oak Trail is a par 36, CR 33.7 Slope 119 and only 2913 yards. It's a very short course but it is not easy. The fairways are tight and the greens are very small with rarely a straight putt (among other challenges).
For a while, I was not logging my rounds because I looked at them more like practice and just trying to walk a quick 9 before work. Well, I learned that I need to post ALL scores for a legit GHIN Handicap.
I like to think I'm a longer hitter (285+ off the tee, 160 8i for example) and when I play 18 holes at more full length and "proper" courses once a month, I play about 6800 yds. These 18 hole rounds were the only rounds I was posting and based on those I'm a 7.9 index (trending the wrong way).
My concern is that it is so easy to put up a big number at Oak Trail that I feel I will be artificially inflating my index based on the high number of rounds I play there. Just this week I put up a +5 and a +7 on 9 holes. On 18 on a full length course, I'm hovering 80.
Is there any truth to what I'm feeling? Does my future, likely higher, handicap come with an asterisk?
Thanks for any advice!
