    Rickg RIP

    First time I met him we were sitting and chatting like we were old pals who knew each other for ages! A sad loss. RIP Rick.

    New Bargains Thread

    The discount was only for the warehouse clearance stock. I bought a UA Waterproof jacket, puma base layer, kids skort and a Stromberg insula top (not in sale) all for £50. Keep an eye on them anyway as they have some regular amazing deals. Month ago got my daughter some Adidas soft spikes for...

    Garden driving range

    No my car, the oven etc. I’m all set to go then get an unexpected bill and leave it until the next month! I’ve got it down to about £60 for the frame and £40 for the netting, using 3m wide scaffold netting.

    Golf clothes for girls

    Bought my daughter a skort from chinnydipper a time Xmas. Really nice quality and decent price, it’s also bright pink!

    Garden driving range

    THis has been a project of mine for the last 12 months! I like to use the net when working on a move from my lessons. It takes away my attention from the actual outcome of the ball and stops the over thinking. So far every time I’m set to do it something breaks down and I have to shell out...

    Arranging match plays gggrrrr

    So it's that time of year again and the summer knockouts have been announced. Well actually that was 4 weeks ago, straight away I emailed and text my opponent. We now have 2 weeks after the weekend for our tie to be played. Has he replied? Has he heck, the text says it's been read on iMessage so...

    So my putting at the moment is a little iffy. On the whole I pick the right line, more or less. The problem is length, I'm habitually short, mainly about 1-2 feet, others shockingly so. So sort from the obvious of hit it harder, how do you go about getting the ball to the whole or past it. I...

    Sky marks

    Anyone know of places to get the crown of the driver repaired? Preferably in the midlands. Hit a massive sky drive on our 9th and with the greens just being hallow tined left about a 1cm square scuff through the paint! So gutted. Had a look on eBay for the repair kits but couldn't find any...

    Arranging a match play game

    Nothing serious but thought I'd reach out. We are into the third round of our knockout winter match play and have drawn the club champion and his partner. Now the window to play the matches was 18th of December to the 15th of January. As it xmas we've been busy and not been in touch with the...

    Short game, short game & short game.

    So over the end of the season most of my game has improved and feeling pretty good, even the driver over the last few rounds. So in preparation for next season I really need to sort my short game out, firstly my putting is pretty poor, after that I need to sharpen up 100 yds and in. So any...

    Lightning strikes twice!

    So this weekend I was playing in our TP leader final, 36 holes over the two days. Points gained from the monthly medals gain qualification and was the first time I'd qualified. I was really excited and playing well as the season is drawing in. Think the nerves and excitement got to me a bit...

    Happy and gutted

    So I've hit a bit of form recently, the happy part! I've ditched the driver as when it's good it's great but when it's not it's costing me shots. Hybrid from the tee is finding fairways and not so punishing on the bad ones. Taking this on has got me qualified for our end of season 2 day final...

    Hello again!

    After taking a leave of absence over the last 6 months or so I thought I'd better check back in and see what I've missed? I felt a little disillusioned with my golf and although I've been playing as much it hasn't been all consuming so stepped back a bit. Still as bad as ever but can feel a...
