Your -12 is, in my opinion, better than a -16 casual round, just because it has to take place during an assigned time slot, with official score reporting, when other players are playing under the same conditions. There are limited opportunities to shoot a record round in these official environments, which to me raises the value. When the course is set in all A positions, you could go out with a week's vacation, play round after round with witnesses and score cards each time, and you WILL beat your -12. I have no doubt about that. Given enough time with an all A-position setup, I think -18 may even be possible. But claiming a course record in that environment is like throwing your whole bag at a short hole, repeatedly, then on the 80th throw getting an ace and telling everyone you had an ace. Yes, it really was an ace - one shot from the tee. That's not debatable, but it loses some of the luster when the opportunity is so much greater. I don't think anyone will go on a week-long binge to establish a course record, but I hope that extreme example helps illustrate my point. In my opinion, you currently own the most significant course record, and all other hot rounds, -witnessed or not, in writing or not - are simply fun to debate and brag about. They are impressive, but in their own (lesser) category.

P3's 2nd round of in the B positions was a hot round, but I think Myles' 1st rd 65 in 2007 is still the hottest 24 hole marx meadow round. Also, I don't think its very valid to compare rounds from different weeks based on the relative par since this is determined by the field and not specifically the layout.

Also, a 1000 rated round on a 18 hole course isn't the same as a 1000 rated round on 27 hole course. I think higher rated rounds are easier the more holes you have.
