My brother and I play each year in a better ball tournament. A few years ago we are in the final group on the final day and come to 18 down 1 to a team that went low. They are on the putting green just to the left of the 18 th green.

18 is a reachable par 5.  I'm just off the green in two and my brother is on in two about 25 feet away. I chip up to 4 feet and go ahead and finish. I make 4, guaranteeing a playoff.

There are about 200 or so people around the green and my brother reads his putt and I ask if he's got it. He looks at me and smiles and says, I got it. He steps up and holes it for 3 to win. The guys on the practice green huff off, slam their putter in their bags and bolt. I give my brother a hug and he says "told you I got it"

Man! Makes me smile just writing it down.  My favorite moment on the golf course.

That is one of the coolest stories ever! :-)

It was great right up until the part about the guys on the practice green. At that point it becomes pompous.

I played in the USGA 4 Ball Championship back in 2016 and birdied 5 holes in a row during the stroke play portion of the tournament.

Its safe to say that Winged Foots greens are absolutely incredible!!!

I got out of my cart on a course in the hills of SoCal and started practice swinging.  Then I looked over at my buddies thinking they're going to hit....and all they're doing is pointing in my direction.  I'm like "WTF".  But then they EMPHATICALLY pointed and I turned around and there were two Mountain Lions about 30 yards away...and for those cats that distance takes about 4 seconds.  i BRIEFLY looked their way and SLOWLY got into my cart and beelined it well away.  Then one of the cats ventured over and picked up my ball....then spit it out.

THE MOST unplayable ball EVER...except for Gators in Florida!  Not sure if it's the coolest thing ever, or most life-death thing ever on a course.

Holing a long birdie-put on 13 in our last mens league tournament of the year, to take that years prize in the eclectic ("superscore") tournament. Nr. 2 on the list had taken it from me on hole 3, so taking it back was great :)  He didn't appreciate it as much as I did :D

The one ace I have, was also pretty cool

I saw a buddy of mine hit a power line on a drive and the ball exploded. Pretty cool

The Sunol Valley Golf Course was closing and as it had been my high school home course, my best friend and I played the last 9-hole round on the palm course. Darkness was falling as we finished 9, and decided to play 17 and 18, our favorite back-9 holes one last time. We get to the 18th tee and a threesome is there, they wave to us to come over. We do.
There’s a plaque on the ground there in someone’s memory. The threesome is deaf, so communication is difficult, but one of the guys pulls out his phone and shows us a picture of them with a fourth guy. He points at the guy and then points at the plaque. Chills. We take their picture with the plaque and let them play out 18. We finished up behind them.

I don’t know if the plaque is still there in the wasteland that used to be a golf course; I like to think that they came back and dug it out.

Final posting under 100 strokes.  I haven't been very good for a long time but after taking lessons and playing with really good people I've learned a lot.  Hoping to score under 90 next.

For me it was watching my 8 year old son make a hole in one on the 5th hole at Machrahanish Dunes in Scotland this past summer.

Have had about 2-3 extremely close calls with lightning.  I've been within a strike and felt it shoot up my body and then nearly crap my pants.  Not getting killed by lightning has been the coolest.

Grew up playing in Kansas where thunder and lighting storms can get pretty intense.
