I played golf for the first time ever yesterday. I played with Mat (my bf) and one of his work mates, Andy.
Stupid day to pick to play golf really as it was so hot. We only actually got round half of the gold course as we where melting and felt really grubby. amazing how mucky you can get playing golf blink.gif Came home all covered in grass.

Anyway...Andy sent me the final scores this morning and I thought I'd show them to you lot...

71 - Andrew - (12 holes) - 5.916666 average

89 - Mat (10 holes) - 8.9 average

118 - Jennie (11 holes) - 10.7272727272 average

If nayone could explain these results to me, I'd be grateful unsure.gif

All I know is, the lower yer score, the better ya did. The points are based on the number of times ya hit the ball. So, let's say if yer on the first hole, an ya take 4 goes ta put the ball in the hole, ya score 4. Then, on the next hole, say ya got 3, then ya add that... an so on... The average is jus how many times it takes per hole, but it's meaninless unless all the holes have the same "par" value.

The "par" is the number of hits it should take ta sink the ball. A better one is to get the par values an compare them. But only if yer any good.

There's also a handicap too, where ya get so many strokes deducted before ya start, if yer not very good. I dunno how it's worked out though.

I've never actually played golf before. I did pitch & putt a coupla times though! laugh.gif

Easy way ta tell... if ya get several clubs an it takes ages, yer playin golf. If ya have two clubs (an iron an a putter) an little in the way of obstructions, it's pitch & putt. If ya jus get a putter, an the course is littered wi windmills an bridges an stuff, it's crazy golf.

I didn't think I was that bad actually. Ok, so I came last and we didn't finish the course but I didn't lose my ball once, didn't have a strop and bend the clubs and I managed to hit the ball on a few occasions. and in the right direcion!!! ohmy.gif ohmy.gif ohmy.gif

I just couldn't belive how knackering it was! I needed my crutch really but I was brave and went without sleep.gif
I fell asleep in the car on the way back.

Crazy golf is both great, and stupid. Ironically, it's not very crazy at all.
