I believe you. But when we're you ever a member of a nine-hole course?
We have a few around here. Two public ones in Erie alone. And as a member at an 18-hole course, you could post nine-hole scores after you played only nine holes. You could even play the front twice and it would combine them into an 18-hole score (with the course rating doubled and the slope the same, of course).
I'm seeking info here - I don't recall that ever being the case, that GHIN doubled a nine-hole score and posted a 78 for a 39. You couldn't even get an odd score that way.
I am currently a member of one, and we do have to choose 9 or 18 when we post now.
Yes, and the 9-hole scores are combined now, as they were then (from memory anyway), not doubled.
That's the bit about which I'm inquiring.
P.S. A quick search yields nothing relevant at http://popeofslope.com/history/index.html
