    Old School Meet 2018

    I'm looking for interest in a meet playing wooden woods and bladed irons.
    Clubs are available cheaply on ebay, I could probably loan out up to four sets for a donation of £5 to H4H per set for those unable to find their own clubs.

    To ensure no need for holiday I'm thinking of a Saturday or Sunday, two courses look promising:

    Whittington Heath where we played in 2016, Winter deal up until 11th March, £180 for a fourball including breakfast.
    http://www.whittingtonheathgc.co.uk/

    Tadmarton Heath, winter rate up until 25th March for tee time after 12.00 = £35 a round
    https://www.tadmartongolf.com/

    Both courses are reasonable lengths for old school clubs, 6135 & 5680 yards respectively from the yellow tees.


    If interested please post your name below with preferred course and date.


    (Edit to add; old school clubs are not hard to play with.
    For the blades the head just looks a bit smaller and you generally have to club up one or two clubs, ie for your current 7 iron just hit 6 or 5 iron.
    The woods are a little trickier, don't expect to hit them a long way or necessarily straight! Just swing smooth, on the courses above a 175 to 200 yard drive will be fine.)

    will try and do either subject to where we are at with moving house, preference would be for tadmarton heath (was in beautiful condition when played there earlier this year and should be a decent course for thee old school clubs)

    edit: you may be able to do tadmarton a bit cheaper esp if people have county cards (think we paid £90 for a 4 ball)
    In the bag:
    TM M1 9.5 degree
    TM M1 17 degree hybrid
    Orka RS1/RS3 Irons 3-PW
    Orka RS10 Wedges 52,56,60
    Ping Ketsch

    Handicap: 7

    Would be interested in Tadmarton on Saturday 24th March if you can get it. Any sooner is too early for my recovery program. Clubs not a problem as my pro has tons of scrap iron loafing in his shop. I bet if I look closely I could find my old Wilson staffs that I gave him years ago.

    I could be up for tadmarton on 24/25. Thatís the only weekend in March I can do. The other option is a bit far to go up & back in a day.

    I could probably make a Sunday but not a Saturday. Particularly, as a season ticket holder, that one, as we are home to the present league leaders.

    Re: Old School Meet 2018

    Just realised that I've assumed people have a good idea what I'm going on about here when I talk about an Old School meet so, to save re-writing a load of stuff, I thought I'd put a link up to the 2016 meet as that gives lots of information.
