    Blimey, I'd have the course to myself if that was the case at my place.

    I guess the question is do you want to stay there? If so you may have to suck it up. Perhaps try to negotiate a reduction for the duration.

    We all swear on the course, so I guess that yours was a high volume one or the wrong people were around at the time.

    Whatever , I think you have 2 options.

    Do the time, accept the punishment, keep paying and try and pick up where you left off.

    Or

    Stop paying and find another club, but don't expect a glowing reference from your current club.

    Think it all depends on whether it was a fair cop Guv, or if you think you have been unfairly treated.

    Re: club dispute

    Doubt you'll be able to say but if you can did you swear at yourself with a duff or missed putt or was it a tirade at a fellow member or passing member of the public etc?
    Without that info not sure we can comment but a 3 months bad and associated equivalent costs is a sore one.

    Maybe they should just have a swear jar in the clubhouse where proceeds go to charity.

    3 month ban for swearing? I don't think I know anyone at my club that wouldn't be banned. I'd be banned by about the second hole.

    Assuming of course you mean saying a swear word or two having hit on off line shot, as opposed to swearing at someone. The latter is a little different, and depending on context I could see how a ban could arise, even then, 3 months is excessive!

    Personally, if I felt like I had been treated unfairly I would be leaving. I'd probably want to exhaust the appeals options available to me, but regardless of the outcome, I couldn't imagine wanting to hand over the thick end of £1k per annum (or more) to an institution that I felt had treated me unfairly.

    Sounds like an accusation with no proof. His word against yours is insufficient to warrant the punishment. I'd challenge this all the way to court if needs be, ridiculous state of affairs. Guy sounds like a charmer...not.

    I'd lodge an appeal. Even at this late stage you have a right to put your side of the story to the club.
