Oh to be young.

A two round day is about all I’m good for and generally that is pretty tough.

This is far from the most holes I've played in a day, but it was the longest day trip.

6/9/18. 567 miles. Five courses. 102 holes. 4 states. 38,550 feet.

Runner up is 8/15/20. 450 miles. 9 courses. 109 holes.

The one day, 5 course, 90-hole trips have become chump change.

I would have to look back at my records and figure out exactly what I did but... Back in 2013 I played something like 26 courses in one day. I car camped somewhere along I-80 Nebraska near a 9 hole course. I awoke before the sun was up and played a few with my headlamp. I followed the dinky 9 hole trail until going North towards Columbus/Norfolk. From there I went towards Sioux City, IA and then ended up going through Vermillion, SD and ending my day West of Yankton, SD where I camped again.

In 2012, I played 33 different courses over 2 days. Began in Brookings, SD, went to Des Moines and back.

Great question! I was somewhat disappointed at my result. I think I only have four days over 20K.

Funny enough, my longest day was somewhat similar to this. 30,175' hitting both Boundary Waters, Dog River, White Oak, and Hunter.

Hardest day on the other hand would be when I hit Griffin, GA. 5 courses at 28,572', but it was sunny, humid, and 98 degrees all day, and one of my rounds was a tourney round that took over 3 hours of sitting in broad sunlight.

If I go to Caesar Ford, we try to do two rounds of Golds (10,000+ depending on pins) and a "cool down" rounds of Whites (7,000+). No idea if that's the longest one day, just a recent one I can remember.

Some real grinders out there! Might as well open this up to all forms of masochistic behavior--highest # courses (looks like 26 niners may be hard to beat!) and highest # holes played (different and/or the same) are fair game too.

Will have to look at my area map to see the best way to maximize # courses or holes in one 24 hour period. Maybe that could be some kind of fund-raiser or something. A disc-a-thon? Not sure if I could bend over that many times in one day though. I can throw with both hands, so that would help a little.

But 26 different courses in one day? With driving? Dang. That one may stand.

That is one thing I love about DG--it helps me stay just a wee bit younger. But yeah, these ol bones aren't what they used to be for sure.

That area is amazing for both quantity and relative quality I think. Though I dont have any desire to play Dog River in the near future. Probably the course that most dislike that isnt in theory not that bad.

We need to do another round sometime soon. Im thinking of hitting up some courses your way like Alexander/Lenora let me know if you want to meet up.

In my 20s-40s I would have been in this discussion. All day adventures were common. Its a lot tougher these days. After 18, Im looking forward a break. Ive done 36 holes in one day, but I cant see myself getting more than that in a day.

Those two are filled by the same slot for me. One December day I played 7 courses in Chattanooga, coming in at 97 holes and about 28,000'. If East Brainerd Church of Christ hadn't been hit by a tornado a few months before, it would have been my first 100 hole day. Shout out to Cerealman for taking down 4 of those 7 courses with me on a nippy morning.
