A second membership to play at Leven Links. Looking forward to playing some links golf as a change from the clay based parkland mud fest we get thru the winter in this part of the world.
From memory, I think you'll be playing off mats though. But certainly an improvement on 'parkland mud fest' - unless you are short of the green on the 18th! :rolleyes::mad:

Yes they have mats on the fairway so just the odd shot off the mats for me 🤣🤣

And will be staying there as a 2nd club (not just joining for winter) so will get the benefit next spring/summer when the better weather arrives.

That's quite a popular choice for 2nd club. I nearly did the same, but joined the newly opened Craigielaw as it was much closer to where I was staying/working (Edinburgh). I got to play Levin via a work colleague who I'd worked with a couple of times before had joined Levin.

Craigielaw is now over £1,000 for membership as I'm not far enough away to qualify for country membership, so a bit too expensive for me for a 2nd membership. Great course tho', played it earlier this year with a friend who is a member there.

A 30 quid VGA HDMI adapter since this one was on the blink and my monitor not working. Obviously since I confirmed the order the old one has worked flawlessly.

That's still a bargain compared to prices 'darn sarf'! But, as home was Surrey, I did get Country membership!

Realised at the weekend that showerproof golf wear is the way forward, don't mind wearing a waterproof jacket when it's raining properly but swapping it on and off with my old man's pullover wasn't ideal. Said pullover has since had a wash and a hot tumble dry to get it back down to size...

So purchased a couple of Adidas cold weather winter tops from the old faithful, County Golf.

when we had that forum meet there some years ago, they had mats in place everywhere, even in the rough, might have changed, but i think the reason for that was the amount of extra players taking up winter membership the place was getting trashed

Fairways only now and as I said above, will be a 2nd course for me in the summer as well, not just the winter. 👍🏻

Looking forward to it.

A Druids trolley and waterproof cart bag as a Christmas present for myself
The Druid water proof bag arrived today (the grey, white and red camo version) and I’m really chuffed with the quality.

The price compared with the waterproof bags from other brands is mad. The quality is not inferior at all having seen the others in American Golf.

Really tempted by their push trolley, looks a bargain at £119 compared to others out there.
