    Would you "go for it" on the water holes? Or would you go for the best score you could get?

    Iím a 3 and my goal would be 89. Breaking 90 would be quite the feat, IMHO.

    You mean you don't typically have thousands of on-lookers when you play?

    Assuming a 78-80 course rating, a 3 handicap should average somewhere around an 85. Of course, psychological factors and pressures might add a handful of shots...but purely based on the difficulty of the course, you should be able to break 90...if you ever got the chance to play.

    ALL course ratings and slopes are in the USGA system. That is the back tee rating and slope.

    All on the website there

    Uneducated opinion, I'd listen to mookie. He golfs. A LOT.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Fake news

    If you post yourself go on ghin.com and enter a score for ANGC. They have a ton of tees names for former champs. (Nobody plays the tips-mookie has heard stories where if anyone sees people on the back tee at #1 they come out of the clubhouse to try and meet the visiting professional who is there to see the course )

    So you admit there is no official course rating?

    Re: Golf 2016 - I Phil we'll never hear the Rory of the Tiger again.

    I've only played one round of golf in my life, A co-worker of mine had been on the Clemson golf team and he played darn near every day after work. He couldn't find anyone to go with him, so he begged me to come along with him. I told him I had literally never played, but he said he was good with that. He was really patient and coached me through it. I really focused on the last hole, and was able to save an even 90.






    ....which I thought was pretty good for my first 9 holes.
    If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

    I attended the 2000 Masters tournament, and coincidentally I was a 3 handicap at that time. I distinctly remember thinking as I walked that course that there was literally no chance I would break 90, certainly not on my first attempt.

    Now, the par 3 course, that looked more to my liking.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
