Default #100 Was "Sweet"

Actually, course #100 wasn't just sweet, it was at the "Sweetest Place on Earth", Hershey, PA. We've been taking my oldest daughter to Hershey Park since she was 2 or 3. She and I love going during their Fall hours as the ride lines are way shorter than normal.

Well, I just found out that there was a course at Hotel Hershey a few weeks ago and so it seemed perfect for me to make it course #100 with my daughter. I hit Rhodes Grove on the way to Hershey for #99. We got to the park, rode a bunch of coasters, and left the park for lunch. We played a fun 9 at Hotel Hershey and then went back to the park for more fun. It was an awesome time, and a wonderful way to make #100 very memorable for me!

Mt 100th was in September at Lee Valley in London, England. Not a great course, but a memorable 100th nonetheless.

Crap, I didn’t know this was a thing. And I’m assuming there’s no way to figure out my 100th without bugging timg. Oh well, being an old coder the closest I can come up with is my 2008th was this morning on a fun little course in OK.

When this thread was started, there were only around 2700 courses available to us. Now, there's something like 7500 here in the states. I think it was more of a thing back then because it took quite a bit more of a commitment (for much of the country) to get to 100 played, due to less course density. Now, alot of us can get there without driving more than a few hundred miles, and probably spend no more than a few weeks doing it if so inclined.

And for those of us who life in the areas where there is not a high course density, its still not an easy goal to reach. Every trip I make I look for possible courses to bag during my travels and I still have another 24 to go. I'm guessing it's going to take me another two years to get there even with the understanding and support of my family.

Dan Schnabel and Mike Sale played 40 courses within 24 hours. Maybe they could have done more if they attacked smaller courses instead of trying for the most holes. Now I'm going to have to figure out how many different courses could be played in a day. Or, how fast a newb could get to 100. Should take about a three-day weekend.

I hit Course 200 today at historic Veterans Memorial Park in Florence Alabama. Its the 2nd oldest (3rd with baskets) in Alabama, built in 1982. It still has the original custom made baskets. I threw with DGCR trusted reviewer GMcAtee. I also got to throw with a future trusted DGCR reviewer Wericsson for course 199.

An absolutely beautiful 65 degree sunny day.
