Many golfers like to keep notes about each individual hole with the idea that these notes will help them score better. Some common notes include yardages, areas to avoid, slopes on the green, and clubs to use.
Yardages can help golfers in many ways including distances to (eg a bunker) or from (a marker to the front, middle, back or specific part of the green.
On many holes there are some 'misses' that are easier to recover from and some harder. Notes on bad misses help a player's strategy.
Sometimes players want to remember which club to use off a tee depending on the wind.
And, of course, information about the slopes on the green including direction and severity help shots in to the green as well as the putting.
