    For instance to miss out on going into the clubhouse at RSG and missing out on lunch, just due to not willing to put on a jacket/tie, it was very special in there, the history, the feelings, the cards on the wall and so on etc. Well worth it, l loved the forum day out there in February and hope to go back one day. Forum days are great.
    I think that sort of thing might be lost on me. I love playing golf as much as anyone and trying new courses, but I don't have a lot of interest in the history aspect. I rarely even watch golf on TV.

    Were you playing 36 holes?

    A few places we have matches against we have to do this and its never a problem, but have only been 16 of us per side

    For NZ not to allow you to order chips is astonishing behaviour from such an established club.

    Wait until we turn up next week
    I am looking forward to you turning up next week to an empty car park and the course to yourself.

    You may actually win

    New Zealand is not in the same league as other courses in the area.
    Plenty of time - shower and change only takes 5/10 mins max

    Yep. And that's fine. I hate the image of golf sometimes, and there's a big correlation between the tie and blazer set and the Gentlemen Only, Ladies Forbidden crowd. I'm sure that's a sweeping statement but I stand by it. And I'm sure none of them are weeping at the thought of losing me as a potential punter.

    Re: Dress Code - Who is responsible?

    I wouldn't expect to eat a CARVERY with a jacket and tie on midday.
    I'd blame the club for being pretentious and not getting modern. And for not letting you know that the stick is still firmly wedged up there.,
    Give it 10 years and it'll change once the old toffs die off.
    Younger new golfers won't be flooding to these courses and eventually they'll struggle for membership. They'll be forced to change.

    I pay a significant fee for my club (most expensive annual subs in area including two soon to be open qualifying venues) and I can stroll round in the bar with my shoes and hat on, and wear whatever colour socks I damn well like. Which is black.

    Take the club off your society rota. Especially after your chips fiasco.

    i dont think the club will be there in 10 years once they have to sell due to the McLaren development - crying shame!
