    Ours to you can hit two drives ( not on par threes) but only one shot to the green.
    we have good practice grounds so no practice on the course.

    My son who is 11 played with her last week (He plays off 33 and beat her easily) and even he said how bad she was, said she stabs at the ball and also said her next pro needs to be a miracle worker

    She plays in all the comps with her lady friends and normally comes last but has come second once thing is she still loves playing.
    This made me laugh. An eleven year old having a pop at Grannie. LOL

    Well that's great if you enjoy it, but if I was thrashing all over the place, it wouldn't matter to me how social it was, I wouldn't be enjoying it, and if I'm not enjoying it, then it's no fun, and when the fun stops, stop, as they say.

    yeh, i can understand that. i remember the days of shooting 120 and wanting to die. alot of people however just like being out of the house. its also great exercise for the older boys. i personally struggle to understand how someone can enjoy being so crap but playing with all the people i do i see that some people get enjoyment in a different way than i do

    its not about banning them from the course is it?

    its about someone who needs a 54 handicap playing comps.


    they need help, not a scorecard.

    I may get to that stage, possibly when or if I lose my competitive instinct, then maybe, but for now, if it were me, I just wouldn't, I would then possibly take up a past time that isn't such a challenge.

    The problem, as I see it, is that you are judging everyone else by your own viewpoint and stating on a forum that is for golfers of all standards what THEY should do, like or want from the game. An old mate of mine recently took the game up at 71 years old, couldn't score under 120 but loves playing after having played football and then tennis for many years. Yes, he'd like to improve and no doubt will but I doubt he'll ever play near his current 28 handicap but the sensible people on here would think he has every right to be on the course and on a handicap that reflects his ability but gives him a chance of being competitive.

    It would just be better if you didnt act like a golf snob!
