Most Holes Played in 24 Hours

How many holes have you played in a straight 24 hour period? Please share your real number no matter what it was, your experiences, and tell us what you did to get your 100 holes in a day milestone.

Curently I have done 8 full size courses in 2 days (144 holes), But I was inspired by this thread and even more by post #95 by grodney. I wasn't going to post anything until I made a real run at this, but this current thread by OJnBasquits has got me to go ahead and put it out there.

I have been planning this marathon day ever since grodney posted that. I am in no way in shape to beat 833 holes, but I would like to see how many many holes I could do in 24 hours.

We have 2 suitable courses to do this. One course, Tommy and Sue Brown Park, is a 6 hole course with no holes over 190 feet and the other, Haslet Community Park, is a 9 hole course having no holes over 240 feet. The pins are close to the next tee pad and if I jog some of them, I may be able to complete 18 holes in about a 15-20 minute average. So I could get by using one disc for the entire course. Plus, the length of the holes would allow me to switch and throw left handed as well if my right arm gets tired. Both courses should let me light up the baskets to continue during the night. I still need to get that approval, but it should not be that big of a deal. I am still trying to come up with what time of day to start this at. Noon seems like good time so I can really start running again in the daylight if I was actually going to get close to a big number.

Now, I'm still a big guy (currently 6' & 255) and been dieting and exercising to get back into shape (lost 20 pound in 31 days so far). So, this summer when the days are longer, I want to gear up for this workout.

There were 2 originally bigger reasons for doing this is. I could really work on my putters and mids to really fine tune those 200 foot and less shots. And this would really get my left hand to where I could possible use it on a more regular basis. I read so many of you guys posting how you got hurt and had to learn to throw with your other hand, that it really inspired me into learning that also. Man, I love this site! I already have played the 9-hole course mentioned above -1 left handed for 18 holes, but that just isn't good enough.

ALSO, if you have any opinions or ideas to help me do this, I would love to hear it. I have not thought much about attire and food yet. Thanks in advance for your help and stories.

In Las Vegas, my friend and I played the 27 at Sunset twice and then played until we couldn't see at Mountain Crest - about 40 holes. I can't remember the exact number, but we did top 100. My arm was pretty sore, but the heat was worse (it was August and 100+ degrees).

Oops, just realized Sunset is 24, not 27. Ah well, the total was in the 100s, even if my memory stinks.

This is a really cool idea, by the way. It's be fun to give it a try, but my off hand is so bad I'd probably be better off kicking the discs when my arm gets tired. I'd probably just have to mix up forehands and backhands more than I usually do, and never throw an overhand shot.

108 holes in a day (24 hours) is the most I have played. This was at 3 different courses with 2 rounds at each one. I did not have to play in the dark, nor do/did I want to. I have mad respect for anyone that is willing to put their body through a trial like you mention above. Go for it and update us on the results.

I dont think I want to try this because I know my arm would suffer for a long time afterwards. I will stick to courses played but I commend you on an attempt. Be careful though because you are likely to hurt your game (and your arm) for the future.

My top holes played is just over 100, but that also included hours of driving to and from an area. Thats about all my arm could do.

Try to do it before middle and high school gets out. Otherwise they will be swarming the course like no other.

I don't think I have ever played more than 60 in a day.

Hey Donovan. When I did the 504 holes, it was my knees, one in particular, that really gave out. My total distance traveled wasn't that great, so I think it must have been the bending down to get my disc. I don't know if there's an efficient stick/grabber thingy, but it might be worth a thought.

By the way, when I played 14 rounds in a day on a regular-sized course, I don't recall my arm getting tired at all. I don't think that'll be much of an issue for you. But I guess you never know.

Oh, and don't forget plenty of nutrition. From that post #95 you reference, that typical Texas Trip was from the year 2000. Out of curiosity, I looked up my consumption/nutrition stats:

Sat = 4 rounds, 12 Shiners
Sun = 4 rounds, 15 Shiners
Mon = 3.5 rounds, 14 Shiners
Tue = 5 rounds, 12 Shiners
Wed = 5 rounds (Round Rock), 13 Shiners
Thu = 2 rounds (weak!), 14 Shiners
Fri = 3 rounds, 8 Shiners. As I recall, 3 or 4 of those Shiners were leaving the Dallas area as a bedtime snack so I could get some sleep then wake up and drive the 2am-6am shift back to Iowa.

Ahhh, good times.

The most I've ever played is 40 and I don't think I'd want to play more than 72-90 in any single day. If endurance play is your thing (like ultra marathoners), more power to you, but I don't think the vast majority of players would be into it.
