Olde Sycamore Golf Plantation


"Great course"

Good layout with many doglegs. Challenging layout that tests every part of your game. Fairways were perfect and aprons and chipping areas around the greens were in excellent condition. Bunkers were all raked and in very good condition. Most tee boxes were excellent;...

Playing alone – USGA handicap
    • #3975

      Looking for opinions. I work for myself out of my home so I can blow out for 18 most anytime. The USGA rules say to not post a round to my handicap unless playing with at least one other – peer review thing. This is one rule I break all the time. I firmly believe that when playing with others there is more pressure to “cheat” than when playing alone. “That’s good, pick it up” / “hit a mulligan” / “roll that away from the tree”, etc. I might pick up a putt within in 10-12 inches when on my own, but when playing with others am invariably told to pick up most anything within 3-4 feet. Many even just whack my ball back to me before I even know it. I keep a more honest score when playing alone AND I have more scores posted to make my handicap a more honest measure of my !
      abilities. Otherwise, for instance, I played 13 of my last 20 alone. Typically more than that on average.

      Honestly, the fact that you even posted this question means you take your handicap and the rules of golf more seriously than probably 75% of those golfers that keep handicaps. Cheers to you. You are meeting the spirit of the rule, in my opinion. The handicap rules were made for clubs where members could police each other. So if you are not a member of a club, there’s less scrutiny anyway.
