    Youre right there Patrick, think some have left for Torvean with the new course getting built, but there fees are the same as Inverness now.
    Ive played a few games at Fortrose this year, lovely course.
    Cheers Brian

    Not sure, if it's anywhere it'll be Close House, but I'm thinking of not bothering with a membership and just playing the odd game and forum meet. Only problem with that is if I do and only play a few rounds this year (2018), then come this time next year (2019), I'll be thinking only played a few games in 2018 is there any point playing at all this year (2019) and would most likely just end up giving up altogether.

    I just need to get my head sorted, at the moment my clubs are acting as a clothes horse in my home office.
    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.

    Probably the best club in the local area and far fewer restrictions, due to inclement weather than other club near to me.

    The only thing we really lack is a top notch short game practice facility.
    Sherborne is better

    Re: WIll you be a club member this year?

    62nd year at the only club I've ever been a member of. I'm a life member now &, for me, life means life! It's the best all year course in the area, always dry & a good test without being too demanding. Never tire of playing it.

    That Close House offer is a cracking deal mind, was tempted myself but even though its nearer than cls, I drive past my course most evenings so it makes perfect sense.

    Re: WIll you be a club member this year?

    Torn at the moment however think Ill give up club membership for a few years as the amount Im able to play vs the annual fee is making each round look very, very expensive. Think Ill try the nomad approach and enjoy playing other courses although will miss the competition golf.
    In the Bag:

    TaylorMade M2 Driver w/ Oban Kiyoshi HB Shaft
    TaylorMade M2 3 Wood
    Titleist 816H1 17Deg Hybrid
    Titleist 816H1 20 Deg Hybrid
    Edel Single Length/Callaway Apex CF16 Iron Combo set
    Edel Trapper Wedges (52/56/60)
    Edel E-2 Putter

    My reoccurring nightmare is that should I drop dead my wife will sell my golf gear based on the price I told her I paid....

    Re: WIll you be a club member this year?

    Staying. My club can get a bit wet in the winter and sometimes is closed for a few days after a particularly wet spell (although the drainage has improved in the last 12 months). However it is close (my garden backs onto the 6th green), and it's a very social club.

    I tend to play once a week at some other club and once a month with a golf society, so I get to see and experience other courses in the area.
