    Subscriptions/current course closures - what is your club doing?

    I think you should think long term and take the short term financial pain. Join the club that you originally wanted and signed up to the waiting list. Get a refund for the county qualifiers. “being clean and dry after a round or covered in mud during the winter months” is the clincher for me.

    A problem has repeatedly occurred on...

    No idea, but you’re not alone. I get that every now and then on the iPad. It’s very frustrating. Power down and restart seems to cure it.

    Open Competitions 2021

    Have entered a few, I think clubs are reviewing their schedules this year, notable that some that I would have entered in the past by now have yet to publish anything. Had an email from West Hill saying they were not running their Over 50's and Mixed Foursomes. Undecided whether shotgun starts...

    Subscriptions/current course closures - what is your club doing?

    A lot of folk think Flexi memberships can be ‘cheap‘ golf but there are pro’s and con’s which aren’t always taken into account. We had a lot of new Flexi members when golf resumed last year but a fair number of them have since ‘upgraded’ or reverted back to traditional memberships. Two main...

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Yep, if we’re all in together and need set examples, shut it down......but I’m not aware of any elite pro golf being staged in the UK at the moment ?

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    OK, sorry, didn’t write that very clearly, it was the grandmother / daughter / child that I meant to refer to.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    That right, but just because you can, doesn’t mean you should / have to.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Changing the light bulb might be essential.....😄 Especially if it stops you tripping over in the dark.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    I know accidents can happen at any time, but if people stayed at home there is a lesser risk of these happening and taking up NHS resources surely? I can give 2 examples - one of my golfing pals, slipped on the golf course walking down a slope off a green, serious knee damage, required an...

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    Well, it would mean that all those people travelling to take up “rammed” tee times are no longer travelling. They may be staying at home. And if they stay at home, it’s pretty much guaranteed that they aren’t culpable in spreading the virus.

    Coronavirus - how is it/has it affected you?

    It would send a strong message that this is a serious situation we are in. All but essential needs should be shutdown. I have no interest in football, but seeing the newspaper headlines / reports, it seems that the Premier League runs in its own world where rules and guidelines are broken...

    Liphook or Blackmoor; which to join?

    Perhaps re read the OP, he is already a member there and wants to join a member orientated club. Goodwood is a place to play golf, not a golf club as most of us would define. West Sussex ? Two balls only, interview just to get on the waiting list, and you’ll need to be “the right sort of chap”.
