Some people are lucky to be able to play year round, and some of us are not so fortunate. Weather is finally warming up here in North Georgia, and it looks like I'm heading out for my first round tomorrow. This year I wanted to set some goals for myself and share with the forum. And hoping that others will share their goals as well. I have a few for this year.

#1 being just to play some more golf!
#2 would be hitting 89 for the first time.
#3 getting my first eagle.

Of course a bunch of smaller goals that just improve my game, but these are just a few that I really want to achieve. Tomorrow's course is a short course, but has some major sloping around the greens. 7/9 greens are elevated and can be tricky. But this is my best opportunity for scoring. Course measures less than 6,000 yards compared to my home course that is 7,600 yards. Shorter course has hard greens, while the longer one has easier greens. So I will still be happy if I score decent even on the smaller course.

I will update this one as I go through my season.

Good Luck on your goals, and your season. Like you, my golf season in Wisconsin is limited. I have set myself up to assist in reaching some goals myself this season.....The obvious one is lower scores. My main one is getting to the green outside that 180 yards. I have not had the confidence with my ability to do that....I added Tour Edge HL3 5 hybrid to my bag, and I am hitting that club extremely well from 165 - 175 yards. My other goal, is to be a better short game player. I have been working on my ball positioning with pitching and chipping, and adding a 52 degree wedge has helped, I am feeling the confidence once again. Lastly, I think we all are probably wanting less putts on the greens. I had a horrible high stat with 3 putts or more last year, and I am looking to improve on that this year.
I went out this past Thursday for 9 holes....The round started off to be 56 degrees, after 3 holes it dropped to 36 degrees. I improved in all the aspects from above, and did not have 1 three putt. So a good start to the 2018 season for me, and I hope the same for you!

Awesome man! I totally understand the chipping and pitching issue. I will admit that I average 105... But I know that I am capable of low 90's consistently. The driver and wedges are keeping me from scoring lower. I "seem" to have the driver figured out and quiet comfortable with it in practice. Wedges feel great in practice, but not sure how that will translate onto the course. I have racked up 4 strokes with wedges before on a single hole many times!

But here's to a better year and low scores!

Good Luck. I'm in VA so golf season is typically longer. With the mild winters lately there is probably only a couple two week stretches where it is too cold to play. AS far as my goals go, I'm looking to shoot in the 70's more consistently. Typically, this has been an issue due to my driver but i think that is coming around. Chipping and putting are what i practice the most and will continue to do so.

Round 1 was a mess! Score was way too high to even count. But in my defense, the greens were in terrible shape and fairways were rock hard. Definitely didn't hit a listed goal, but I managed to pull off something I have never even thought about pulling off. And that is 100% FIR. I had an amazing day with the driver hitting every single fairway in regulation. I am excited as ever to get out on a healthy course and see what I can do with confidence in my driver.

My 2018 goal is a little bit different.
My main goal is to teach the children of our area servicemen how to golf.
I plan on taking them to my club and giving them instruction through the summer into fall.
I have four students as of now and am looking for four more.
I want them to understand and enjoy the game and to be proud of their parents achievements.
I have the help of two friends that are willing to spend the time and money needed to make these kids feel good about themselves. Wish me luck.
