    Return to Golf in Scotland

    My manners are impeccable. Your club has set out the rules. Email them if you're not happy. Incidentally i had a stroll through the local park again tonight and only saw one man and his dog. Even the cycle path wasn't crammed with people disregarding social distancing. Golfers should be...

    Ping Glide 3.0

    I have Ping Glide 3.0 and think they're an improvement on the 2.0, very good. Of course you'll soon have the "buttery soft" idiots coming along soon to dismiss "cast" clubs.

    Return to Golf in Scotland

    I've not seen anyone cram into a park yet. Your attitude is typical of the selfish golfer image that is portrayed in the press and wider community. Take it up with your club if you're unhappy. Bleating about it on a two bob forum won't win any prizes or change anything.

    Well hopefully Mrs Cannon doesn't come blundering in and make another disaster.

    Return to Golf in Scotland

    Again thats not what I'm asking. I was asking how strictly it is being enforced/adhered to. I know what has been said in Ireland and I know what our First Minister has said. I am more interested in whether clubs are cancelling bookings or stopping members booking tee times etc. Or is a blind...

    Tee time booking and restrictions on how many times a week you can book

    Our BRS booking is currently closed. It will reopen when they have decided what they are doing re starting back up etc.

    If SG say it should be adhered to then yes I can see golf clubs adhering to it. That would be a severe kick in the stones! Hopefully clarification will follow. Can any of the Irish on here comment on how their clubs are doing this, is it being "enforced" is a blind eye being turned? After all...

    Return to Golf in Scotland

    I'm not arguing what was said by our First Minister, what I am saying is that all the guidance I've seen coming from Golf Unions mention the 5 mile radius. If your golf club choose to enforce that and monitor their booking system i will be screwed. As will thousands of others. If your club...

    Return to Golf in Scotland

    Also our club is rather unique and I would suggest that under 15% of the membership will stay within 5 miles and I think that is being generous, could be as low as 5%.

    Return to Golf in Scotland

    I read it and its clear as mud. I'll wait till after the first few days before I consider hitting a ball. I've not played since mid March anyway and still got no real inclination to go and play either. I will let all the golf "junkies" (which I used to be one of) get their fix first then try a...

    Return to Golf in Scotland

    Yeah I've got to be honest I would rather still be in lockdown than be told - you are now allowed to golf but sadly you don't meet the criteria to play golf as you live out with THE five mile radius.

    Return to Golf in Scotland

    As i said what will be will be. I finish up on June 1st for 3 weeks. Could be perfect timing. I better crack on with my garden "make over" in case i get the urge to hit a wee whit baw about in the next week or two....

    St Andrews - Old Course

    As you know the proposal for schooling is mind boggling and very unlikely unworkable around working parents if this goes ahead. Almost part time learning. There are huge obstacles to overcome in all aspects of work and life. This has a long way to run yet before any sort of normality resumes.

    St Andrews - Old Course

    Huge difference between "want" and what they get. Like everyone else they'll have to adhere to government guidelines. Loads of courses will see a HUGE drop in visitor income which will be almost zero this year. Your course will be effected badly also by visitor income. Are you still ploughing...

    Scottish Fitba' 19/20

    Should history then not reflect that Rangers cheated their way to several titles and cup wins by making illegal payments? Just playing devils advocate here. West of Scotland really is an utter shambles when it comes to certain football teams.

    Scottish Fitba' 19/20

    A bigger issue financially is I'm confident that Aberdeen would have overtaken Motherwell in the run in. Therefore Aberdeen have been financially disadvantaged by calling the league. However the fact is it needed to be done. Celtic were miles ahead and not being caught. Thugs Utd were bottom...
