    Thanks, it's just motivation really. I have a habit of thinking that I won't play well so why would it be worth it but when I get out on the course I generally enjoy it. When I saw a coach he seemed to think I could be a good player so I want to fulfil my potential.

    Is there somewhere locally you could join? Do you still work or would five day membership work? I think if you got a couple of lessons to iron out the main faults, got into a club (or society that plays regularly) you'd get the bug and be off and flying

    The most local club is called Gaudet Luce. It is a lovely course which is on the short side at around 6,000 yards but it is challenging. 5 day membership is around 400 to 500 so that is out of my price range at the moment. They have utopian membership though which is where you can buy a certain amount of points for a 100 and you get full member benefits.

    The other course I could afford to join is Ravenmeadow. That is around 5,300 yards off the yelow tees. It is not as good a golf course. It is however cheap for membership, at just 30 for a month for five day membership.

    (Posted this the other day but it seems to have disappeared, weird..)

    Went for a round at Haste Hill with two pals on Sunday afternoon. Could have entered the Stableford but I was knackered from two games of football so elected to have a leisurely round off the yellows where I wasn't worried about points-scoring.

    Ended up getting my new best ever round of 85! Three shots better than my previous best. I was almost gutted I didn't enter the Stableford, but then off the whites it could have been a very different round. Seven pars in total, but more crucially I think, there was only one triple bogey. Everything just came together nicely, driver was really good, irons solid, chipping was very good, putting was decent - missed a couple I should have holed but generally not as bad as usual, ha. Only one three-putt anyway. So yeah, I'm delighted, still buzzing at the moment.

    Managed to get out yesterday for the first time since June! A grand total of 6 points scored on the front 9 while I remembered how to swing a stick, but came back in with 17 points.

    Delighted with the back 9, given 2 1/2 months away from a course and feel i left a good 10 shots out on the course with both shot and club selection errors. I was consistently 1 club short going into greens which is annoyingly rectifiable! Back on on Thursday, on a course I know better than yesterday's, so hoping for a much better score!

    Gross 73 at The Oxfordshire yesterday. Annoying as i started off with a double, because the range wasn't open so i couldn't properly warm up.

    Gaudet Luce is pretty nice mate, some gentle holes and some tougher ones (off whites that is)

    Points system sounds good mate to get you started 👍👍
