    I've just seen the weather forecast for this weekend. It looks like it will be a challenging few days for players and spectators.

    Flags and Rakes

    From today, we will be able to remove the flag and rake bunkers, although still be able to lift and place in the bunker for those who don't feel comfortable touching rakes. I wonder how many will be doing this.

    I see that there are no greens books being allowed for players and caddies at the Masters. Let's see if it speeds up play or not.

    iTunes and iPod

    I was given a couple of CDs for Christmas and have been trying to download them to my iPod, however I don't seem to be able to log on to my iTunes and when I connect my iPod to my desktop it isn't recognised. Any ideas?

    Wine With Turkey Dinner.

    Being a lover of Malbec with our steaks on a Friday night, I was wondering whether to have red or white with our turkey dinner this Friday and looking for any recommendations.

    Scottish Golf App

    Just wondering if anyone else is having problems with the General Play Score with this app? If I log in and tap the HCI tab on my app, (which is red and not blue as shown in the "HowTo" demo) it takes me to the "My Handicap" section of the app but not the "General Play Score" section. I have...

    New Course Opens

    Following on from the 'Any Clubs Closed' thread, a new course has just opened in Fife. Dumbarnie Links has just announced it is now open for play. £235 a round (Or £115 if resident in Scotland) puts it up in a league with Kingsbarns pricewise. It looks magnificent but it will be interesting to...

    Return to Golf in Scotland

    Following on from my previous thread that was locked, I have heard a rumour from a fairly reliable source that Nicola will be letting us out to play from the 25th May. Let's hope it's true this time and not another false alarm.

    Well, according to Nicola, it looks like it will be a few more weeks before we get back out on the course North of the border. 😭

    SkyCaddie Subscription

    Just as a thought I asked Sky Golf if I would be entitled to a refund or discount on my next subscription as I can't use my SkyCaddie at present. Funnily enough, the reply was "No". :(

    Essential Services

    Well it's nice to see that the sun is out and the traffic police are sitting on flyovers on the A90, flaunting the 2 metre rule, whilst the roads are probably the quietest ever, and trying to catch speeding motorists. These are part of the "Essential Services" that we are expected to respect and...

    Travelling to Turkey

    For those travelling to Turkey, from March 2nd, Turkey has announced they will no longer require travellers from the UK to apply for a visa allowing entry for up to 90 days per 180 day period. (This is rather unfortunate as I applied and paid for mine last week for my trip in April.)
