Default Are 150’ aces really a deal?

So is an ace on a really short hole really any more special than a 150’ throw in on a 400’ hole?

I have actually given people that I play with a hard time when they sink a 169’ ace by telling them “nice putt”.

I get that any throw in from the tee pad is technically an ace but how excited do people get from one of those versus maybe a 300’ ace?

I have only been playing for a little over three years and have yet to hit an ace because I guess I’m not that good but if I hit one on a really short hole I’m not sure I’d be overly stoked about it.

Flame on.

You would feel different if you hit one.

150' throw in is a 2 on the scorecard at best.
150' ace off the tee is always a 1.



How anyone feels in those situations is up to them, I reckon.

Probably some truth there for sure.

We have a little pitch and putt course near my house and the holes are all about 200’ ish. I’ve hit metal a bunch but nothing has stuck.

I don't police how other people feel. If someone gets a 150' ace and they're happy, then I'm happy too on their behalf.

----------
edit: My most recent ace was just a little over 180'. Did I whoop and holler and act like I'm the queen of the world? Nope. Did I smile really big and take a photo for posterity? Sure did. However, if someone else hit the same ace and was whooping and hollering, I'd laugh and smile and give them a high five. Different strokes for different folks, ya know?

And what I bolded is the difference.

No one's looking at that stuff when the numbers get counted at the end, are they?

(spoken in Jeff Foxworthy's voice) "If you tell someone "nice putt" after they hit a 169' ace...you might be a douchebag."

There is a hole on my local course that's a wide open 160'. I've plastered that basket with nothing sticking. When one finally does stay? Dam right that's an ace and I'm gonna be stoked. To each their own though.

When it's your first ace, it's kind of a big deal.

When it's your 15th, it's a nice putt
