    Getting brave...

    About to set off on a round at Brampton. Picked a busy time to try to get over the 1st tee yips. But something I'd not even have considered 2 months ago.. Starting to enjoy this, hobby, well lifestyle I guess.

    1st 18

    Did my 1st full course 18 today.. 105 round Brampton heath.. legs ache now tho. Driving great, 180-200 off 3 wood white castle tees.. fairway stuff however was dire. But the whole point was to see how I got on with a full round on a testing course. So immediately booked my self a 1 hour lesson...

    Thanks to this forum.......

    I started as a very nervy player / beginner, too scared to get to the 1st tee, as was embarrased in case i topped it. However chatting on here gave me the confidence to go do it. at a public course... and ive got on ever since. So Saturday I went up to Brampton Heath and Joined, got my pin and...

    How long?

    How long does a club usually take to reply re membership. Applied a couple of weeks ago but had no response, and sent an email asking for an update (politely) Aware most clubs are very busy, but seems a long time to contact.

    sprinklers - ruling please

    Today on Pytchley, i managed a creditable 53 through 9, However on the par 5 3rd, the sprinklers were on the green, and no greenkeeper around to turn them off. Whats the shot ruling there? im presuming you dont have to take a soaking :) Do you hit near the green and pick up, or what?

    Selfish and arrogant

    Today I turned up at Pytchley, looknig forward to a 09:40 tee time, having had a lovely round yesterday with a genuine 3 at the 155 yard 5th. 3 older guys turned up around 09:33, paid and headed for the 1st tee. I thought they must be running late for their 09:30. So headed up to the tee around...
