    Re: Scoring suggestions

    That's not quite 'job done' as it's still favouring the teams with four. Two of their players can balls up a hole without it mattering whereas only one of the the players on the teams of three can...

    Re: Ebay

    Spot on. Bid your maximum and bid early - you'll only ever pay a bit more than the second highest bidder so there's no reason to not do it this way. The last-minute bidders will only win if they're...
  3. Re: Can you hit TWO Identical shots in a row ?

    It depends on the shot and the tolerances for your definition of "identical". I can hit the same shot 100 times in a row if it's a 1" putt!

    Re: Just confirm my rules advice please

    I don't know the answer to the question; but I do know that it's very easy to mark two balls differently so you can always tell which is which. Schoolboy error on his part I'd say. String him up!

    Difficult to tell without being there. Could have just been light-hearted, or he could be a bell-end. There are a lot of them about.

    Re: Cigarette Ends...litter?

    It always surprises how some smokers, most of whom would never think of dropping a sweet wrapper, think it's fine to throw down their fag butts as if they are some exception to the rule.
  10. Hit ball with practice swing on the tee

    Casual match on Tuesday so no dramas if we broke the rules but i wasn't sure at the time and I'm still not sure now.

    My opponent teed his ball, and then took a practice swing, he made accidental...

    Re: Phone as a GPS/distance measuring device

    Might be wrong but I think poor cell coverage would only stop you getting the pictures of each hole; yardages would still work as they use GPS in the same way as a standalone unit.

  16. Re: Halfway huts - how good is yours? (if you have one)

    Yes. You can't call it the halfway hut or you will be in breach of the Trade Descriptions Act 1968. Can I recommend the "11/18th-of-the-way hut" or the "61.111...%-of-the-way hut". You might need...

    Re: Whats the options here?

    You don't get relief but you can remove the fence in the same way that you might move a red or yellow (but not white!) stake. Don't forget to replace it afterwards though.

    Re: how far should I be driving?

    Without knowing how fit you are it's impossible to know how far you might be able to hit your driver. The makers claims of x yards are just bogus - if I hit it I will get 230, if Rory McIlroy hits...
