It was indeed Chris.....;););)

You'll have to come down for a game again.
That'll be good Rob, from what I remember I quite liked the course. Oh, and I didn't mind helping you look for your ball in the ditch- just a couple of times! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‹

Don't know. I haven't played it for donkeys years, and didn't like it when I did play there. Too many weird and wacky bounces!!
Apparently they have spent quite a bit of money on it and made quite a few improvements.
I played there about 7 years ago and the back 9 was more interesting than the front. Nice bar/restaurant

Looking to get back into club golf and get my handicap active again, I'd initially thought I'd be returning to Cooden as a flexible member.
Unfortunately, they've recently done away with the "flexible" category, and replaced it with something they call "off peak" membership.
This allows me to play after 2pm during the Summer and mid-day during the winter months.
But the cost has risen to just over Β£800.00!!
Have also looked at joining East Sussex National, which is considerably cheaper at Β£450.00 but would limit me to about 12 or 13 games, depending on tee off times/weekends etc.
Another local club to me, Highwoods, has just started a new flexible membership scheme, which on the face of it seems to offer terrific value for money.

I'd been a member there before, pretty nice little parkland course, but for various reasons left and joined Cooden.
My Β£500.00 gets me 20 playing "credits". Play anytime after mid-day and it costs me one credit.
Play before mid-day and it rises to 2 credits. Very simple!!
So if I play all of my golf after mid-day I'm going to get 20 rounds, which works out at Β£25.00 per round.
And looking at the blurb, there are no restrictions on week-end play, so I'll be able to take part in stableford comps etc. on Sundays.
Seems a no brainer......have sent off the application form. Let's hope they don't require references.....:cry::cry::cry:
if you fancy a game at ESN, just let me know

if you let me know your availability towards the end of may, i can sort something. hopefully the greens work will have fully recovered
He's in Wales Shag. But he's coming down to stay with me for the Cooden meet at the end of July, so maybe we can sort a game out at ESN for that week sometime?? Cooden is on the 30th.

First knock today...will take the new driver out to see if it behaves before I make the decision whether to use it in the comp on Sunday.
Onward and upward.....
