    Irish Open 2020 - Mount Juliet

    So it has just been announced that the Irish Open in 2020 will be held at Mount Juliet. I thought this would be coming with the change of dates but I am still disappointed they have moved away from Links courses. This can only have a detrimental effect on the competition with the schedule...

    9 hole qualifiers - Is getting cut easier?

    9 hole qualifying events have became very popular in NI over the last few years for mid week competitions. We actually run 2 per week across both our courses. One thing I cannot understand is how the shots are allocated. I get that it is based on stroke indexes of the holes which are played yet...

    What would you do?

    At the start of the year I was struggling a lot with hitting snap hooks with the driver and over turning basically all my irons.

Currently I have a 2016 M1 which is set to 11.5 degrees and has the weight fully back. The shaft is a 60g Kuro Kage stiff and when on my...

    Buying a second hand car

    Hey all, just looking for some advice as I've never done this before.. I am contemplating buying a new (to me) car from a dealer close to me. The current car I own still has finance outstanding but the car should be worth more than what is outstanding. The car I am looking to get is more...
