    Titleist AP2 714 3i-Gw irons

    Having recently upgraded my clubs, I am offering my previous "backup" set of forged goodness of Titleist AP2 714 for sale. A chance to get probably the best AP2s ever made. :) A note from the original Titleist (St Ives) fitting in Jun 2015: I later added 3-5i and Gw. The lies would probably...

    Mixed tee comps

    Now that it’s possible to play any tees in a comp (provided the club rated them for all genders ;), has anyone tried to play from the tees they don’t normally? E.g. from Red ones in Men’s Comp? Personally, I think it’d be interesting to see what one would score as on a significantly shorter...

    Course rating/Par/Shots

    Sorry if it's been covered, but I still have one question about the new system. Consider a course that is rated: - white tees: rating 73, slope 139, par 72 - yellow tees: rating 69.8, slope 135, par 72 From either tees the player is given the same number of shots. Question: it seems...

    Swinley Forest 3 Ball

    Hello, For your attention a great opportunity to play Swinley Forest. Won by me in the last year's H4H auction. Unfortunately, due to other commitments I can't play it in the slot offered (the tee time has to be either before 7.40am or after 5pm). I got it for £413, I'd like to offer it as...

    Max consecutive golf days?

    What is the max no. days in a row have you played? Doesn’t matter how many holes (9/18) just how many consecutive days of golf you had. Second point: did you improve because of it, got tired/fed up etc? Just played 6 days in a row (mostly quick 9 holes but also two 18-hole rounds). Feels...

    Lw full swing?

    Following the discussion of “specialist” vs “set” wedges in another thread, I was wondering how many of us use their higher lofted wedges for full shots? Do you try using your Lw (58-60*) to full shots? Are you successful/ consistent with it? I used to swing fully with 54/58 (Vokey) but now...

    Initial hcp 9-hole cards

    Hope some knowledgeable experts can clarify. A player submits cards for initial hcp. All cards are for 9 holes (ie submitted 6x 9 holes cards). How would a LAGD be calculated in this case? E.g. if the best gross over 9 holes was 49 on par 34 with no more than a triple bogey on the card...

    NR In supplementary/handicap round

    Hope the knowledgeable members here can clarify. Imagine someone playing a round for handicap, do they need to hole out every hole or can they pick up on any “disaster” hole? In a medal round NR is Ok and the card is still processed for hcp purposes so by this logic the above should be...

    Game golf wanted

    I would like to give Game Golf another go and wonder if if anyone has one gathering dust that they would like to part with. I don’t mind if it’s Live or Original, don’t need the tags and don’t care how it looks or if the clip is broken, just as long as the battery lasts a round.

    Initial handicap

    Is there a maximum score for the initial cards submitted for hcp purposes? Just curious, as it seems that in principle there is not, hence a junior/beginner could submit three scores as high as anything and would automatically get 54 hcp? Anyone can confirm?

    National and county affiliation fees / second club

    As the fees are usually included in the subs do you have to pay it in your away club too? And a county card fees? Can’t find any official guidelines but was told that the club is charged by unions per member regardless if they are already a member somewhere else. Anyone can clarify? Thanks

    Can anyone help with a simple (hopefully) question. I'm looking for a Diamana Blueboard regular for a Titleist driver for a friend. Is there any other place to get one at a reasonable price apart from the bay? Thank you in advance.
