    Played Hindhead twice in three days. Once on Friday and lost a bounce game 3&2. Then played again on Sunday, when the course was setup for the club champs. Greens were ironed and were rapid. Won 2&1.

    Our course was closed yesterday due to Lady Captains day, so had to play our Tuesday evening round elsewhere. Decided on Abbey Hill in Milton Keynes on a twighlight ticket for £13 after 4pm. Me and Mrs Wedge went out at 4:30, and were packing our bags back into the car at 7:45 after completing the full 18 in 3hours and 10 mins.

    Not played there for a few years now, but have to say that the course was in great condition. The fairways were good, the first cut was thick and lush and the greens looked superb. The only downside was that despite their look, the greens were incredibly slow, certainly compared to what we are used to at Leighton Buzzard. But that did not deter us, or impact our enjoyment. The reappearance of my duck hook was prolific, producing some horrendous shots. Fortunately, the course is a little more open than LBGC, and my scrambling was pretty good. Despite being out of position numerous times, I was still able to come in under handicap. Mrs Wedge struggled a bit with the first cut being so thick and clingy, but she also managed to come in a couple under handicap. There weren't any really difficult holes, no really long holes - many around the 360yd mark, no real need for a driver at all, even the par 5's were sub 500 yds. All in all though, it was an enjoyable round on a pretty decent course, certainly for the price.

    greensomes tie last night with Slow Dave. Against two of the slowest guys, if no the slowest at my club, that made Dave Seem a positive racing snake by comparison.

    only just got in before it got dark almost 4 hours on an empty course. Imagine Jason Day and Kevin Ka being your oppo, only slower

    won 2 up giving away 3 shots, they ham and egged well and the high handicapper hit it miles

    I played a match there last month, the rain started 5 mins before I tee'd off. Needless to say, not the best views that day

    We'll need to arrange another game again soon Steve

    29 points today, but massively inconsistent, as evidenced by my card for the back 9 which had a 5 pointer, 3 x 3 pointers, 2 x 1 pointers, and 3 blobs. Not a net par in sight.

    Highlight was on our SI 3 412 yard dog leg 16th, beautiful 250 yard drive, peach of a 5 hybrid which ended up just off the green, about 10 ft from the flag, then a little chip which bounced twice and straight in the hole for a lovely 5 points. Felt like a proper golfer, or at least I did until I walloped my drive on the 17th about 50 yards left of the intended target, nearly killed some poor bloke walking up the 2nd

    Rule 1 - Don't birdie the first, it's all downhill from there....
    And it was.
    Some very extraordinary swings that produced visits to parts of the course I normally only see whilst playing different holes...
    Perfect preparation for the qualifier on Friday and Forest Pines on Sunday
    Could be a long weekend.........

    I like to play new courses when I can, so today I made the trek to Waterstoke. Doubt I'll return any time soon, the course was was decent nick but it was just so dull.

    Smashing round with ManinBlack and two of his friends at Prudhoe GC. Great company. Didn't strike the ball well today which was disappointing after a good run of form. Recovered towards the end and went to the last level for the back nine, my partner and i got stuffed on the front, before proceeding to make an absolute hash of it 😭😭. Honours all to MiB and his partner.
