Default 1000 Different Holes in 3 Days

I found a string of 78 courses that have 1002 holes and are a total of just 378 miles apart. In other words, the average distance from one course to the next is under 5 miles.

At the pace Mike Sale and Dan Schnabel played 417 holes in just one day of civil twilight, 1000 over the course of three days of daylight could be possible.

This concentration of courses extends from the St. Cloud, MN area down through the MPLS/St. Paul area and a little bit over into Wisconsin.

The most I've done in 1 day was 117. I was feeling it for days, can't imagine doing that 10 more times.

Hmmm... 1000 holes in 3 days... I know there is a Wilt "The Stilt" joke in there somewhere...

And I thought I was ambitious trying to do 300 in one day.

Personal record is 223.

The most I've ever played in a day was roughly 7 rounds(126 holes ish. Been a couple years and don't remember exactly how many I played) at Winton Woods at an ace attack event. fairly short course but after throwing 3 tee shots on every hole, I was pretty dead armed by the end of it...






...and I didn't hit one ace. Chained out a couple times and hit cage several times.

Weren't they pretty much dead after setting the one day record? How could they keep pace for three days?

We did 237 in 19 hours. 1000 sounds pretty ambitious How much time would you spare for sleep each day? Cant really go without, or it will be agony. Got to have fun doing it.

Even with 600+ courses in Finland, they are not necessarily right next to each other. And you have to avoid the busy courses at rush hour too.

Did Mike and Dan play 417 DIFFERENT holes in one day, or just 417 holes at the same course over and over?

After doing the math, I just don't see how this would work. If you do this during the season with the longest daylight in the Minneapolis area, you've got 15.5 hours. So, there's 334 holes a day. That works out to be 21.5 holes an hour. If you do all 18 holes courses and one 9 hole, that works out to be 19 courses. Even if your average travel time is only 10 minutes (including parking and getting to and from the car), that's a little over 3 hours of travel time for the whole day. That brings your total playtime down to 12.5 hours. So your actual holes per hour would have to be around 26.7! Now I don't imagine you'll be running the entire three days either. To me this just doesn't seem plausible.

Doing your hole count on the same course, maybe. Especially if it's a short course. But travelling to so many different courses means many of them wouldn't be short. Doing this in the summer with daylight and good weather would also mean crowds. I mean, good luck on trying, but I don't know.

To answer your question above, I am pretty sure they did 417 unique holes in one day. Thus making 1000 in 3 days seem totally feasible.
