    Golf holiday company recommendation

    Hi, Join the 'Golf in Turkey' Facebook group. Use either Bilyana or Deniz Gurlersan. We use Bilyana who are fine but Deniz on that group seems excellent.

    Can anyone recommend a chainsaw please?

    Thank you all. I am doing this myself as its actually the neighbours hedge (which our old neighbours neglected) so I don't want to pay £1,000 for something that they should - but they have just had their second child and I guess they have better things to spend their money on. Also, this wont...

    Can anyone recommend a chainsaw please?

    Many thanks. Various bushes such as hawthorn (nasty stuff) holly, sycamore and Poplar. Most is fairly do able with shears, hand cutters and a trimmer but I will have to cut through up to 6 inch diameter trunks. The height is about 15 feet but it thins out allot beyond 10 feet. So I will have...

Balls were starting to move on greens and I wondered if they would halt play at times. We spent some time behind the 16th green.You can then see them play all of 17 as its a par 3 as...

    British Masters

    It's on the pricey side; Cheeseburger £8 couple of beers £11.50 Bottle of coke (500 ml) £3.20 I imagine the rent they pay is high...... If you like G&T there is a bar by the 16th green and to drum up business (it was baltic today) they were giving out free shots....yummy!

    Bending Lofts Strong

    I did this to reduce the spin rate. I reckon for every 1 degree off it takes about 250 off the spin. I use Ping I Blades and Ping have a 'power spec' on their website for these where the lofts can be bent to and still retain playabilty. Its taking up to 2 degrees off each iron. Worked very well...

    Driving around the M25 this week, I saw a traffic sign which said 'Sign not in use'. Well that's nice to know, I thought. Anyone else seen any signs that seem pointless?

    59s at the Shriners?

    Seems to be happening more often than not these days but both Byrd and Tringale are -7 thru 11. 4 more required in the last 7. As they started on different halves, their better ball stands at 58 and can only go down. Not bad.......... :whistle:
