    Definitely worth it

    Hankley Common

    Played Hankley as a courtesy as there was some open on at Hindhead. Last time I played was a few years ago, I remember the 2nd being a nice little par 3 but the recent changes are just wow. This little par 3 is now my favourite hole!

    What age do you stop improving

    I play with a very competent golfer who’s in his mid 60’s, his handicap is still steadily reducing. He has gone from 6.8 to 6.0 since the beginning of this year… No ailments and is fitter than me in my 40’s 🤣

    Junk, managed to hack it round but firing on 1 of 4 cylinders…. Driving was the best in a long time on Wednesday …. Couldn’t drive to save my life. Irons were awful, couldn’t find anything but bottom groove or the toe. Putting was OK but had a 1 foot putt on 16 for par… miss, 1 foot miss on 17...

    New Irons - maybe too hard to hit

    Agree. I often practice with my old TP-9’s, mainly the 4i. If you can hit this you can hit anything

    Maybe one day but I’m not that good yet. 9.5 hoping to get down to 7ish this year

    Greens were lush, very receptive and actually had a bit of poa seed in places. Poole obviously gets better weather as the course seemed to be about 4 weeks ahead of Hindhead in terms of growth and recovery from maintenance. Not a criticism, but they were slower than Hindhead’s greens…

    Not a single dull hole and a real challenge

    Parkstone photo dump

    Incredible place, attention to detail around the bunkers and greens was immense, certainly worthy of its place in the top 100. Loved every minute.

    First time playing Parkstone, wonderful experience - what a course! Bang on handicap but very inconsistent, 2 birdies but 5 doubles. Couldn’t be angry as the views were stunning and a few shots were total guesses in the wrong direction… 84 hacks, 9 fairways, 9 greens 32 putts - very familiar...

    Finally got the driver working again, absolute bombs down 1 and 4 at just over 300yds and 10/13 fairways in regulation. It was the irons turn not to show up, I could blame it on uneven lies etc but the confidence just want there, 1 or 2 approaches were good the rest were meh! Putting so so...

    9 holes and then instead of walking in we did 17th tee to 18th green and three putted for bogey. 5i through a narrow gap between the trees and then a 6i for GIR. Man my putting sucks! It was gusting to about 35 mph so it was tough... first hole lately has been driver - 9i and it was driver, 5i...

    Hindhead January ‘22

    Yes, there's a few holes in winter that are absolute beasts. Once the run out returns its a totally different course.

    Masters Week Thoughts

    Cam Smith I reckon. Will watch highlights on social media, refuse point blank to be ripped off by sky any longer.

    The lefts haven’t left yet… everything straight left again, obviously an out to in swing with a closed face. Contact is perfect, very annoying. Big range session needed I think. Match play foursomes and somehow we managed the win 2/1, don’t feel like we deserved it at all. Reckon I’d have...
