    Lost ball by fellow competitor mistakenly playing it

    Today, whilst playing in a medal, our group let another through. Whilst waiting in the fairway we watched them walk down, identify their balls and play them to the green before we played to the green. No problem at all. One of them called back to check what we were playing as he was playing a...

    Radyr GC with Matty6

    On Sunday, I finally managed to get to Cardiff and play at Radyr GC with Matt. I had won the auction during the 2016 HFH lead up and had been looking forward to a course that had been off my radar before meeting Matt. It was a thoroughly enjoyable round with a great host. The course was in...

    Great customer service by PING

    Late last year I hit my first shot of the day down the middle and then heard a rattle from the head of my driver. It was a Ping Anser, about two and a half years old and the weight that screws into the centre rear of the head had gone into the head. I am not one for hitting the club on the...

    Matchplay win but felt terrible afterwards

    I knew when our society knockout draw was made it was going to be difficult. Of the other 31 players, I was drawn to play my son. We played today and although he only had to give me 2 shots rather than 4 ( society h'cap lower than club ) I won 2 and 1. Walking off I felt worse than I have felt...

    Now thats what I call a Christmas pesent !!

    I know it's Boxing Day but when you get up and hear that Australia were all out for 98 and England have a lead without losing a wicket I could have kissed the cat. Looks like Melbourne is now half empty after 80000 were there earlier. Come on England.

    Shotmiser G500

    My search for a DMD today led me to try ou the Shotmiser G500. The people at Shotmiser had emailed me a couple of weeks ago to let me know that the course (Ombersley nr Kidderminster) had received their supply, so I gave them a couple of weeks to get to know it. When I got there, the staff...

    Garmin Approach G5

    This gps is reviewed in the supplement with the May GM. I can't find it on the Garmin website and the only detail I have found has been in the US. Has anyone seen one in the UK or on a UK website? It seems OK but would like to see one in action. One obvious benefit would be that there are no...

    Good Evening All, I have been viewing for a while but now the time has come to dip my toes in. I play a couple of times a week because of the freedom my job gives me. I don't play much at weekends as I play cricket too. Handicap is 15 which is frustrating. My son is also keen and off 15 too...
