    Trolley Newbie

    I usually rent a push trolley when I play as I’ve realised that carrying my bag does my back no good these days - admittedly it does get lighter as the round goes on and I lose more balls but that’s by the by. What with the current restrictions renting a trolley isn’t an option so I’m in the...

    I played today and..(Rolling) -originally created by JohnnyDee

    Played my first round of nine holes since the end of lockdown at Welford. Lovely course. Having only really played in winter so far it took a bit of getting used to the hard ground and what this does to the bounce and run. It’s also fair to say I am very rusty. My brother took a few videos of my...

    New Golfing Term - A Dominic Cummings

    3. A ball you manage to keep in play the whole of the front nine but then totally disappears into the undergrowth never to be seen again when you begin the back 9

    Driving ranges?

    I’ve not been since lockdown but a mate has and said it was fine there. You need to book I think though. The other aspect is there is a grass area available too - very rare for a larger range.

    I bought today.....

    The plot thickens. Perhaps a sequel to the Golf Depot saga! In all seriousness I hope you get what you need sorted. I saw a few postings on a review site that were less than favourable. That combined with the slightly dated website banners and very good deals on a number of items led to my...

    Staying hydrated on the course

    I’ll usually take a litre of a protein drink I use daily as part of my workouts, more out of habit of using it during exercise than anything else. I’ll have a 500ml bottle of water as well. Remembering to actually drink is more of a problem for me, although I’m planning on getting a trolley this...

    Lovely, that’s great to hear. Thanks.

    I bought today.....

    Does anyone have any experience of CG Discount Golf? Just looking on their website and some good deals to be had but the website has adverts on the front page for clubs that were released a few years ago and looks like it’s not been updated that often. Just wondering if it’s legit.

    I bought today.....

    Brilliant. Although looking on the website there is hardly anything left. You might end up with a Chelsea branded ball marker.

    Make sure your club is obeying all the Health and Safety Regulations

    I’m no expert but I’d have thought that as it is technically a place of work for green keepers, club staff, etc that there is a certain duty of care required from the club itself. If it is allowing people to break the rules I wonder if they might be in a position to be held liable? And before...

    Driving ranges?

    I handle them a fair bit because a lot of mine don’t make it more than a few feet from the bay. I like to give myself a second chance!

    Make sure your club is obeying all the Health and Safety Regulations

    If this is the case then this needs to be dealt with quickly and without any hesitation. This kind of thing will lead to privileges being taken away. If we end up in any future lockdowns then even anecdotal evidence of flagrant flouting of the rules will see golf looked on less favourably as...

    Could club memberships increase?

    I was thinking about joining a club this year. One in particular that I haven’t actually played yet but my brother rates highly and is near where we might move to in the near future has a very attractive joining offer. Unfortunately they are currently only allowing members to play (which I have...

    Driving ranges?

    It’s been going on for ages where I am. I mentioned before that during lockdown we nearly got hit by some idiot letting his young lads hit balls around the closed course on Wimbledon common. Another bloke on the local pitch and putt, which is in another large local park, was lashing balls around...

    Make sure your club is obeying all the Health and Safety Regulations

    Extreme but reoffending rates would likely be low ;)

    Driving ranges?

    The range I go to is opening next Monday, along with the ‘adventure golf’ crazy golf course attached to it. Instructors will be back doing 1 to 1 lessons but not group lessons at the moment. Not sure how I feel about it at present. I think I’ll probably leave it a week or two and let them get...

    Help with iron query

    It wasn’t long ago I was in the same position so I know how confusing it can be. Glad I can help.

    Help with iron query

    The fitting involves trying different shafts with the heads to see how performance differs. The fitter uses a special set of heads which can be quickly swapped into different shafts. They will also fit you for the lie angle of the club (how upright the shaft is in relation to the club head)...

    Help with iron query

    I have a set and have been playing not quite a year. I love them. Well worth getting a fitting as I found different shafts made a big difference with them. Mizuno have a wide range of shafts available at no extra cost so not much to lose in that regards. They are definitely ‘hot’ in the sense...

    I bought today.....

    It’s just another added excitement to the ongoing Golf Depot lockdown tombola of luck and chance - what new and random items will be added to the site this week and will they be at such a ludicrously low price as to justify buying a spare set of irons, just in case?
