  1. Re: Following on from ‘how much should a visitor pay’ thread .

    £170 for Prestwick.

    Not going to pay that much very often, but there are some "treat" courses that I'm prepared to shell out for occasionally when on holiday.

    Re: Are you aware of your PP's score ??

    Re: Bunkers GUR & a fair drop

    There seems an obvious solution to the OP.

    Increasing the size of the area around the bunker marked as GUR should reduce, or perhaps even remove, the problem as OP sees it.

    Re: Matchplay question

    May l be the 99th person to point out that you don't give him shots on the three hardest holes. You give him shots on holes SI 1 to 3. Which is not necessarily the same thing.

    No real reason why the hole size should be reduced when a stabilising ring is inserted. With the grass and soil having elastic (or plastic, not sure which is the right term) properties, a hole...

    Re: Hole liners

    They are circular but, yes some have a slight taper as per your image. In some the taper is just because the thickness of the plastic is slightly less at the bottom than at the top

    Re: Hole liners

    Some of them are not quite symmetrical - so don't fit quite as well if fitted the "wrong" way round. But of the ones I've seen, it wouldn't make that much difference.

    And in any case, there is no penalty for not abiding by rule 6-6 (nor any general penalty for breach of rule 6). So, if you don't record the score after each hole, what can anyone do about it?
