The real question is: how long will this record stand?
Nothing off of matrix, but if another energetic young'un who's in exceptional shape, picks a course like Civic Center, I bet they could break it. Civic Center looks custom made for such an event. I can't really picture an actual course with as many holes as compactly laid out.

I feel that the flat ground on the course that Dan Schnabel broke the record on is a key factor in doing well on this. There are a couple small inclines but nothing drastic plus he only needed to use challengers there. I see him breaking the record again there, the man loves a challenge!

I can see it being broken here

Longest hole is just over 200', and only 1 slightly wooded hole on the course.

That does indeed look very compact.

In '03 or '04, I played 504 holes in 7.5 hours here: Fewell Park. Back then it was 1097 feet and almost flat, but with 650 feet between holes for a total round-trip distance of 0.33 miles. Now it's been lengthened to 1150 feet with a hill on #7 and #8, but it's probably still very do-able.

I played the first 47 rounds (423 holes) in 6 hours and felt like I was FLYING, but that was only averaging about 2.6 mph, so matrix doing 3.2 mph for 24 hours is all the more impressive to me. If Fewell or Civic Center is around 0.33 miles round trip, you could theoretically hit 2000(!) holes by averaging just over 3.0 mph.

Civic Center measures in at 1094', and while I've never even thought to measure or pace out a round, I'm certain the distance between holes is less than total hole length. I'd say a round here would clock in at just under 2000' total distance walked (including the walk back to tee 1 from basket 9).
• terrain is flat
• woods only a factor when the basket is overthrown
• Longest shot = 200ft., with most about 100 ft.
All holes easily aceable (honestly, calling some of these par 2's is almost a joke, but who's gonna say par = Ace?).
• Avg # of strokes per hole significantly < than 3. This might not seem like much, but multiply x 150 rounds or so, and the result is less strokes/hole = more holes played over a 24 hr period.

146 rounds of 9 = 1314 holes: would set a new record.
146 x 2000' = 55.3 miles (way less than the 77 miles someone calculated for Matrix’s world record).
It’s a nice park, in nice neighborhood, on the same grounds as City Hall and Police Dept, with a Division 1 University across the street.

If anyone wants to push the record even higher; Civic Center is custom made for just such an event.

I’m jus sayin’…...................

Not so sure someone would agree half way through the record attempt. Hole #7 would be dreaded when jello legs kicked in.

I admit it there's a slight downhill slope to the entire course going from north to south, and you'd feel it when your legs turn to jello, but it plays flat, and saying Civic Center has elevation is really stretching it.

And there's the added fact that you cover less overall mileage, so you might be fresher than you would otherwise be in the later rounds. Plus all the really short holes require less energy off the tee and less energy expended overall because of all the dueces you'd hit.

You've been around a bit... have you seen a course that's better suited?
