    Re: Winter Golf- Who has the advantage?

    Didn't we have that discussion just a few weeks before? Seems oddly familiar.

    Anyway. I'd say it depends on why the higher handicappers are higher handicappers. If it is mostly because they...

    Re: World Handicap System

    I really don't see the neccessity of this. How many amateur golfers do compete internationally anyway? But that said, I don't much care how the handicap is calculated. It will never be "perfect" and...

    Re: How Many Greenkeepers Does Your Place Have?

    3 or 4, I think. But the club also commissions out a lot of the less golf specific stuff like cuttng hedges and trees and the like, to a local landscaping firm.

    Re: Golfing regression

    Learn to have some compassion for yourself. Even for a tour player the difference between a really good day and a really bad day can be as much as 20 shots. And that is someone, who spends a large...
  5. Re: Ridiculous Distances of Today's Professional Game

    Re: How to attract more players - Or not ?

    Every time I am in the UK, I seriously wonder how all those smaller golf clubs survive, to be honest. Maintainence costs can't be that much lower than in Germany. Membership fees ususally are lower...

    Re: Anyone else not hit a ball 2018?

    I managed to play 9 or 12 holes a few times with my mum (admittedly mostly because she is relentless and will drag me to the course even on days where I would rather stay at home due to frost or...

    Re: Rick Shiels shoots +41 Im 3 rounds

    No, I don't think so. I love Rick, I really do, and I think he is an excellent coach for any beginner or for an amateur who wants to hit the ball further or work on his full swing to get more...

    Re: Range boredom - what do you do?

    Not a massive fan of the driving range either. When I go I usually have something specific to work on in my swing, because I just had a lesson or something like that. Or as a quick warm-up before a...

    Re: Paige Spirinac: Good for women's golf or not ?

    I don't neccessarily think she attracts any more women to the game. Don't get me wrong, I am sure she is a nice person, but she kind of personifies so many things that are wrong not only in golf or...

    Re: Ball flight and colour.

    I find bright neon yellow ones easiest to track, usually. But in the end it depends much more on the angle of the sun than on the color of the ball.

    Re: New H/C (54) Comp Changes

    Don't know if it is the same in Britain, but in Germany (where we've had the handicaps up to 54 for quite a few years now) your handicap can only go down until it reaches 26. And in the range between...
