    2018 targets and plans?

    Time to start thinking about 2018 and what you have lined up or hope to achieve. What are your targets, which courses are you hoping to play, which competitions will you be entering?

    Re: 2018 targets and plans?

    I would like to get to single figures, but I’m taking a “if it happens it happens” approach.

    My primary objective is to play as much as possible and enjoy being out there.

    I also want to try and play as many of the good courses near me as possible. My membership arrangement means I pay a green fee whenever I play, so although I will play as much competitive golf at my home club as possible, given I’m paying a green fee regardless I am trying to get out and play as many other courses as I can.

    On my list for 2018:

    Littlestone
    Piltdown
    Wildernesse
    Addington
    Mid Kent

    No Targets as such. though i doubt i will play the club Champs next year as the dates are changing to 36 holes Sat/ Sunday in an effort to get more members to play, not just all the single digit players. only trouble is if you qualify it just means playing Sat and Sunday, then the Knockouts Mon/Wed/Friday evenings the same week.

    The wife has got me a round at Turnberry Ailsa for Christmas, so will be playing there June/uly and will arrange a game at Western and a mate's BIL has just got in Troon so there on the same trip

    Same as every year - single figures but adding the hope to a year of better health than the last two years
    removed list of clubs as they change too frequently !

    Handicap 12.0

    Re: 2018 targets and plans?

    After shooting a pb 77 the other day not playing overly great, then I think getting down to 12 has to be a target.

    however hitting 77 on an easy muni of the yellows which have been pushed well forward isn't the same as playing in a comp off the whites on a tougher course.

    So, I'd take any kind of shot loss and just aim to keep getting better. Eliminating the hooked iron shot and improve the putting has to be the real target. Then hopefully the hc will look after itself

    3 small targets in order,

    1 - join a club
    2 - get a handicap
    3 - get said handicap down to at least 15

    Figure I can get the first two done easy enough, so effort on 3, it'll need real work so a good target ��
