I like it... might install some bricks in the ground around our practice green and keep some score cards in our kiosk to make playing easy to do while waiting for the slacker who said they'd meet you 15 minutes ago to play a round.
Paint distances on the bricks and put in three for each distance...I like it.

Here, I did the math:
Code:6x 10 +5 +5 +10= 80 6x 15 +5 +5 +15= 115 6x 20 +5 +5 +20= 150 6x 25 +5 +5 +25= 185 6x 30 +10 +10 +30= 230 6x 35 +10 +10 +35= +265  1025

Here is one for you brain how could you tweak scoring to arrive at a better number i.e. 1000 or 1080 or even 1010.
I just don't understand 1025 am I missing something about that number... and why is the number so high? if we divide everything by 5 we get numbers a little easier to deal with without devaluing any of them. Now the game is called 205. Take away the inconsistent jump to 10/2 bonus points for first and last and you have 201, thats a number I can deal with. Reminds me of 301 for darts or any number of games that end with the number 1. Games to 11, 21, 101 there is an inherent familiarity there. You get a point per foot, per put, plus bonuses and with the predictable increase in total points means you could probably remember how to play this without the scorecard in front of you.
6x 2 +1 +1 +2= 16
6x 3 +1 +1 +3= 23
6x 4 +1 +1 +4= 30
6x 5 +1 +1 +5= 37
6X 6 +1 +1 +6= 44
6x 7 +1 +1 +7= 51
201

Ah so is 1025 supposed to be a rating... Ok I could see that working I guess but if thats the case i'm going to need the scoring to workout to 900 rated player averaging 850  950 scores when they play. I am thinking though with all the emphasis on the 30 and 35 foot putts my average scores won't be anywhere near my rating. I guess the only way to know is to play and see.

If you were to use this scoring system and add 800 to your subtotal, the Final Score would reflect your ratings much better.
Scoring would start at 800, good round for a rec player.
Scoring would max out at 1001, Pro Level
I think this gives a decent range for most of our ratings...
If you missed any one putt your rating would drop 415 points... 215 points for each one after
Anyone else wiling to give this scoring a try?Last edited by jshrack; April 14th, 2011, 09:47 PM.When a ball dreams, it dreams it's a Frisbee.

From the couple rounds I tried (with the 800+subtotal scoring,) I think I will have to improve my putting in this game to match my PDGA rating.
I think this will push me to improve my putting to match the rating... which will improve my rating through better putting in rounds. So I will have to improve my putting more to match the better Rating and it starts again. It's like the most wonderful Catch 22 ever!When a ball dreams, it dreams it's a Frisbee.

This could be something done at weeklies even. Done before so people have a good chance of hitting putts during the actual event. Perhaps the SDGA should throw around this idea?"Honest work is for the downtrodden and the Polish"
