    Monitoring Players On The Course

    I guess a lot of clubs just accept that a few people might walk on after these times, and weigh up whether it's worth the bother and cost of getting someone to marshall the course. The people that walk on probably aren't that likely to pay the twilight rate, so the club won't necessarily...

    Monitoring Players On The Course

    What actual law (if any) would people who are playing golf without paying breaking? Trespassing I assume? I'm guessing that the police wouldn't ever get involved?

    How often is too often for you?

    I am being made redundant in mid-July, and I dread to think how much golf I will be playing :D I won't need to get a job for probably an entire year, but ideally I'll start earning money and keeping myself busy from September onwards. I did go on a golf holiday 18 months ago in Palm Springs...

    What do you hate about the game?

    Really slow play is annoying. Stuffiness that you still find at some clubs. I'm playing at a fancy club next week that requires me to wear a jacket and tie for lunch afterwards. I think it's all a bit strange to have stuff like this in the year 2019.

    What do you love about the game?

    This past week I've been lucky enough to get out on to the course quite a bit, and being outside in the heat is just wonderful. The feeling of hitting an iron shot really pure is nice.

    LPGA - Rule Break or Not

    But again, let's look at the facts here. The facts do not show any proof of intent in this incident. Even in football, players are often charged with negligence and not intent. I think that when you consider the actual golf rule we're talking about here, the intent needs to be clear and not just...

    LPGA - Rule Break or Not

    Fair point, but this is what we saw: Player A hits their ball on to the green. Player A asks Player B if she would like the ball marked. Player B declines the offer and does not say why. Player B hits her ball on to the green and ends up hitting Player A's ball. The two players have a laugh...

    Dress Codes

    I disagree. It would be superb to see someone trying to hit a drive whilst wearing a pair of stilettos.

    Dress Codes

    I honestly wouldn't care if someone came to play golf with me wearing a leather onesie. I find it odd that people are bothered about how people dress in the year 2019.

    Working around Newhaven- course recommendations

    Newhaven Fort is a nice way to spend a couple of hours though (y) Probably not at this time of year though.

    Working around Newhaven- course recommendations

    I played one of them (cant remember whether it was West or East) in early Novemeber a couple of years ago and I was surprised at how wet it was. Considering how much rain we had down here last week, I wouldn't want to play there myself at the moment.

    Working around Newhaven- course recommendations

    East Brighton and Lewes are also decent courses, particularly at this time of year as they drain well :-) Lewes has lovely views over the town, and driving up the single track road to the course is an adventure in itself!
