    Do you also have this addiction ?

    Whenever I pitch up and find out there is an 18 hole competition running I always enter.

    It does not matter what the format is, medal, stableford, bogey etc., if I am woefully out of form, the course is frosted and rock hard, so wet the ball plugs or disappears on the fairways, blowing a gale - does not seem to make a difference.

    I am compelled to play in the comp .....

    I enjoy competitive golf and enter all single competitions,not so fussed about other formats but I will play in some double competitions and Texas scrambles, thinking of joining another course so I can play more single competitions.

    Yes, don't think I've ever played without entering the comp if one's on and I'm eligible to enter

    I lose interest in social games with nothing on them. Need to play in a comp, for hc or even just a couple of quid with mates. I also have no interest in team games.

    I'm pleased you added that last bit 😁. I'm probably the opposite. I prefer social games for fun rather than comps. I love team games over playing individually. They are more interactive and social.

    used to. the first few year after starting to play ( apart from the first few months, i didn't play weekends) i played every comp and the ones at the 2nd club i joined and at least one open. there were some weeks i would play 4 comps a week.

    once i got down to 6 and lower i sort of picked a chose, what and when apart from at Nairn, where i will play all the silver comps. This year was the first time i didn't play all the pullar medals.

    I invariably enter any comp that is running on a day I play, I also like team games but I dislike matches more and more that require a formal dinner after.
    removed list of clubs as they change too frequently !

    My whole golfing life is one competition 😀 can't get enough of them.

    No point shooting level or better in a friendly with zero pressure - do it in a comp you have the proof 😘
