They issue an extension for someone without asking if the other player is available. Did my head in when I experienced it.
That’s exactly it all parties should be in agreement, I was going to ask if I could hand in a couple of cards for the club championship at my leisure.. seeing as I missed that one and could not work it in between getting my hair done ..

Looks like we may have got the game organised but they want full confirmation the day before. If they pull out, I will be asking for a forfeit though as the other one has entered a competition on the day we are supposed to playing 🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️ And the original final day of the competition.

Well I did call this one so not a big surprise, finished one place outside the "prizes" again. Small membership anyway, plus a smaller than usual medal entry with a "ryder cup fun matches" also on during the weekend.
In 2nd, the pro (who can have hcps now) with a gross 64 😯 And in first a net 62 from a 19 HI. Not a newbie, just one of them "all goes right" days.
I must try harder 🤣😁😅

They came back and said one is off playing elsewhere.. not happy , so I have put my foot down. Bloke needs to prioritise does he want a club title or play away .. we all cannot just run around at the whim of one person

Gods waiting room.....
Why, when you're playing reasonably well, does one of your playing partners always cock it up for you by mentioning the fact that you are in with a shout of winning???
Happened yesterday. Playing well, a run of straight pars and the scorecard was looking good. Then came the comment.
This was then followed by a double bogie on the easiest hole on the course, a triple bogie on a fairly straightforward par 4, and a double on our par 4 9th.
That's seven shots dropped in 3 holes.
Back 9 didn't get any better. In fact it got worse.
Driving was impeccable, only missed one fairway. Irons a bit shonky. Chipping okay. Putting like a plank.

Having to play my semi final match today in heavy rain and 50mph wind.

Not really played in rain much this year at all, going to be a waterproofs day.

Fairly early to be saying in with a shout after 6 holes isn’t it anyway?

Just had a call to say that my new irons are delayed until mid December now. Shafts that were in stock when I bought them are now out of stock and TM are struggling to get them apparently.

Annoying that stock conditions affect something already bought and paid for after the fact. I get it if it happened if I was humming and hawing about buying them but after?

It will be interesting to see if manufacturers delay next year's release cycle as they will still be fulfiling orders for this year's releases

I doubt it, they'll probably just keep stacking the orders up whilst taking people's cash.

From order to delivery at current ETA will be 16 weeks over a usual standard of 3-4.

Unreliable playing partners.

My main PP is a lovely bloke and brilliant company, but the number of times he pulls out on the day of a game is beyond a joke. Particularly when it's just the 2 of you booked to play.

I agree this is annoying

I don't mind off round alone ... So isn't overly issue

However if there's a day I'm 50/50 If I can make it I'll make sure there is a 3rd player so if I drop out No1 misses out
