    Re: Thinking about moving clubs

    It would seem having an opinion is a breach of free speech, something we fought for and should, if factual & truthful, not ever have any consequences.

    If any individual or establishment takes offence to an opinion whether voiced in public or directly, and it is truthful & factually based opinion and not deemed to be slanderous or libellous, then that individual or establishment need to have the balls to openly defend and debate that opinion.

    I am in a situation currently due to a tweet I have made, and I am considering my options.

    Quite shocked by that, very strange decision by the club, how to burn bridges etc rather than a smooth departure.

    Sure makes me think about not playing there or the country membership.

    How does that effect your future membership applications, does that mean you will need to declare it when applying to the new club?

    I'm more amazed that they identified it was you, under a pseudonym of "khamelion"

    They're all canny clubs in the list but for me it would have to be Tyneside. Classic James Braid track which is easily the one which copes with bad weather the best.

    The others I like - especially Garesfield (and someone said Ravensworth) - but they don't tolerate the wet (which is the usual norm - hopefully not for a few months yet though, eh) as well as Tyneside.

    I always post as me. No hidden names or owt.

    They don't like it, stuff 'em! (Mod Edit)

    You said nothing inflammatory IMO.

    If they're that short-minded you're well away from the place!

    That said I am a chippy, incalcitrant, Northern git!

    It would be very easy for them to reply, all they need to do is get the secretary to join this forum and post their side of the story. Have seen that happen on other forums when a company feels that it needs to put it's side of the story.

    Very poor state of affairs from the club, and CH must know that their reputation was likely to be further damaged once that their draconian action became public knowledge.

    Re: Thinking about moving clubs

    Seems a dramatic and negative move. With social medial these days it would have been been really easy to put a post out saying we've seen the issues raised, we'd like to meet with Khamelion and discuss his concerns. Shows they are aare of the situation, show they are open to discussion and see where it goes. If they took him to a meeting and the outcome was the same then they should expect all the negativity it would attract. Sad outcome. I hope Khamelion finds a new home, new golfing friends and put the situation behind him.

    Re: Thinking about moving clubs

    Still no one has answered Jensenís question, how did they know exactly who it was? Is GM towers able to answer this or is it because Iím far too lazy to google it for myself?
