I have a 9 year old daughter who is quite keen on golf and I have taken her for junior group lessons and have been playing some of the local par 3 courses with her. She has been badgering me to let her play a full sized course but she doesn't hit the ball consistently far enough for me to have given in, However one of the driving ranges we go to in Nottingham has a nine hole course made up of par 3s and 4 short (300yds or less) par 4s so the last two weekends we have played there.
It is a great little course for her to learn on but it highlights the short comings of the sss system for handicapping. I have shot 40 and 38 for the nine holes and the course has a par and sss fo 31. If I entered these scores and tracked them my handicap would presumably fall from the current 26 to somewhere in the mid teens. On my home course last week and on a course I visited I shot my usual low hundred scores.
Has anyone else encountered such an easy track anywhere else?
