I shot a 67. Which would be great on an 18 hole course, but is terrible on a 9 hole. That's 37 over par, or an average of 4 over par per hole.
I got off to a pretty bad start, I flubbed the first tee shot and it only went about 50 yards. I sliced my second shot completely off the course. That's a one stroke penalty. I finally managed to finish the hole with a total of 9 strokes, 5 over par.
The second hole is the longest on the course, and I just could not hit the ball at all. It actually took me 12 strokes to hole out, 8 over par. Ouch.
I started having better luck, shooting 4 over par on the 3rd hole, a triple bogey on the 4th, and a double bogey on the fifth.
Then came the 6th hole, a par 3 that requires shooting over a creek. I was really nervous, but I actually managed to land the ball on the green with my tee shot! My first GIR! I was near the edge of the green, still a good distance from the hole, however. My first putt was perfectly straight, but too hard, it hopped over the hole. My second putt came up short, so I had to take a third to hole out. Still, it was a mere bogey!
Unfortunately things went rapidly downhill from there. The 7th hole is a par 4 with a long tee shot over the water. I managed to send all 7 of my remaining golf balls into the drink or onto the unreachable island. I headed back to the clubhouse to buy some replacement balls. I asked for some advice on that hole, and they recommended I try the ladies tee, which I hadn't seen before. It didn't cross as much water. I started over from the ladies tee and still managed to only get 5 over par.
I did a bit better on the 8th hole, with a triple bogey. I was getting really tired by then, and managed to totally botch the 9th hole, mostly through bad chipping and putting; I ended up with 6 over par.
