    Return of comps & qualifiers

    We had a 9 hole non-counter on Friday and having an 18 hole non-counter on Wednesday. Next Saturday we're having our first competition counting for our handicap. The bunkers not being raked isn't an issue for us as we generally don't have rakes as the local dignitaries come onto the course and...

    Scotland 4 balls -EDIT: MORE THAN 2 HOUSEHOLDS...

    We've had an email saying they're looking at what can be changed in phase 2 but nothing specific. Our competitions have started back - there was a 9 hole stableford on Friday and there's an 18 hole stableford this Wednesday neither of which are counters for handicaps. Next Saturday is the first...

    Return to Golf in Scotland

    We've to start using the Scottish Golf VMS app from next week. It allows you to book, pay and enter scores online. If it works well then it sounds perfect for what's needed just now. I wonder if clubs using it will be able to get back to competitive golf earlier.

    Return to Golf in Scotland

    We're solo or 2 balls from 29th unless there's any new announcement before then. No mention of a limit on distance from course. One of the guys I play with lives about 15 miles away. As long as he drives straight to the course and doesn't stop anywhere I can' t see how he'd be putting any more...

    When do you think you will next play golf?

    I think Scotland will be 1st June as the next official review is on 28th May. Anything earlier would be a bonus. I'm a bit worried that if the numbers do start going up in England (which would be nothing to do with golf) the Scottish govt take fright and lock us up for even longer.

    More posturing from Wales! (golf regs)

    Wouldn't be surprised if that's what we get in Scotland just to show we're different and somehow more sensible than those in WM - and I actually like Nicola Sturgeon (usually). I've finally accepted my fate and will just take what we get when it happens.

    When do you think you will next play golf?

    I could have guessed that. Your flag kind of gives it away.

    When do you think you will next play golf?

    The more I hear people getting their tee times the more jealous I get. Bloody Scottish Parliament - if I'd only known it would stop me playing golf I'd never have voted for it.

    When do you think you will next play golf?

    If you ask for 3 balls then they might give you 2 balls as a compromise.

    When do you think you will next play golf?

    If they bring this in in Scotland then I could play with my son but he's still at the stage where he shouts and bawls and chucks clubs about if he hits a bad shot so might just play on my own.

    When do you think you will next play golf?

    I don't repeat it day after day as you suggest but only when there's a reason for it. We've just had a statement from the prime minister which doesn't make any sense when it comes to social distancing in a park as opposed to a golf course. I think it's reasonable to point that out. Also when I...

    When do you think you will next play golf?

    I don't think only I should be allowed to play golf I think everybody should. Pointing out how ludicrous the situation is is justifiable. You're the only person who seems to have a problem with it. Just ignore my posts from now on or block them if you must.

    When do you think you will next play golf?

    That's what I'm saying - it's better to have 2-4 people on a golf hole than 50 people on the same area of ground in a park. It's getting silly now.

    When do you think you will next play golf?

    It's a forum for people to discuss issues relating to golf. Pointing stuff out and giving an opinion isn't whinging. The powers that be in golf should be asking these questions and I think they should now open the courses with social distancing and argue that a golf course is the equivalent to a...

    When do you think you will next play golf?

    If I lived in England I'd be saying I'll take my exercise on the golf course and my mate will take his on the golf course at the same time and we'll stay socially distanced. What's the difference between that and going to a park with hundreds of other people while staying socially distanced? The...

    When do you think you will next play golf?

    Nicola Sturgeon now saying people can exercise as much as they like as long as they socially distance. Surely that would mean golf is ok as long as it's socially distanced. I think the SGU should at least be asking the question - in fairness they probably are.

    BRS golf booking

    We've used BRs for a few years but last week were told we're switching to the Scottish Golf VMS system. You can book times etc but also pay your money and enter your score as you play then it works out handicap changes etc for you so should be perfect for the' new normal'.
