    Re: How's Your Course Holding Up?

    My course Grange Park is excellent apart from 13 th that's wet.
    Greens flooded at weekend due to very heavy rain but fine today.
    Greens slit and cored but putt ok
    Course has been fantastic this year
    Very good winter course dry as a bone today except for 13th.

    Re: How's Your Course Holding Up?

    Dunbar is a good as it can get, immaculate from tee to green. Royal Musselburgh, not too bad but the greens are like velcro, soft ass with leaves everywhere. Only six months good golf TBH.
    Practice, you only get out what you put in, but I'm having second thoughts. In my bag this week Callaway driver, 3 and 5 wood. Titleist 909 21 degree utility, Titleist 909 19 degree utility with TM Vsteel 5 wood shaft, Taylormade P790 irons DG 105 shafts, Vokey 200 series wedges 50 and 58. Odyssey works cruiser putter, Prov1x, HC 5.

    Re: How's Your Course Holding Up?

    Our course is playing very nicely. They brought in preferred lies on October 1st a month ahead of normal which seems eminently sensible.

    The course drains pretty well throughout I've never known a hole closed unless there is maintenance work going on.
    Handicap: 12

    [QUOTE=dewsweeper;1755514]Warrington is in fine condition.
    Being on a hilly site some bunkers are GUR because have filled with water.
    Crazyface where are you playing in Cheshire?[/QUOTE

    Although I'm in Cheshire I play in Leeks Staffs. It's only 12 miles and 20 mins away. Why?? When I joined 8 years ago there wasn't a place to touch it member wise and certainly green wise, we had the "best greens in Staffs". If it rained the course drained very quickly. The best drainage of late was when the river burst it's banks about July last year and cleaned the drains out (we all think) the course drained great for about 2 weeks, then the puddles came back and haven't really gone away. So not anymore I'm afraid. I am looking at Macclesfield, who have improved their course immensely over the last two years, and Styal, who have a cheap membership that includes monitoring your H/C for you and you pay a reduced fee for their comps.

    You see. Greens flooded, but a few days later ok and "course as dry as a bone". We're being conned.

    Re: How's Your Course Holding Up?

    My course sent out an email saying that we had to tee up the ball on all fairways, not just pick and place but tee it up, qualifiers ended at the beginning of September. The greens are struggling to recover from the maintenance week and if we get more rain in the coming weeks, we'll be on winter greens as well, shortly after the course will go down to 16 possibly 14 holes.
    If you've been smoking something you shouldn't and you see something that walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and looks like a duck, then it's probably a dog or a bag of peas.

    Honestly, better greens than Little Aston, Beau, or South Staffs?
    Never playedit or heard much about it, seems to fly under the radar (as do most of the north Staffs clubs)

    I'm really not a fan of the course at Styal (though the facilities are quite good). On my 2 visits it was terribly wet/muddy - was quite shocked as the weather hadn't been that bad.
    I was told they have easily the largest senior section around as the course is almost dead flat (make of that what you will, good or bad)

    This is exactly why i joined my current club. Both courses play superbly 12 months a year. Don't even need preferred lies really.
