Had a quick blast round the back 9. Course looking lovely, but greens slow. It was great to be back out even if the golf was a mixture of the good, the bad and the ugly.

Thought this needed its own thread for comments on our first round back.

I was one of the first ones out at Pyrford this morning (pulling rank as Captain of course!) - first shot really ropey as trying to remember how to swing a club. Then somehow shot level par for the front nine and +3 gross overall. Where did that come from?

We have taken white tees away to promote social golf - all the essential distancing options - starting on the 10th because it is right by the clubhouse window. But hey - GOLF IS BACK!!! (Sorry Scotland/NI)
Out of interest, when did you start your captaincy?
I was supposed to start mine after the AGM at the end of March but that has been postponed now until November at the earliest.
Will yours run for the usual 12 months or has it been extended?

It began in November so I am half-way through it. There have been informal comments about doing another year but it depends on my own circumstances as I was planning to move from Surrey down to Devon at the end of this year. We will see. I have just had to cancel my Captain's Day and postponed the Club Championship for now until September. Guess I picked the wrong year to have the honour.

Yes, and me.
It has been suggested that we swap to a November changeover and that would tie in with when our ladies section change their captaincy.

I don't think we will be allowed fourballs unless our protocol differs from the GUI Republic of Ireland model. But I know that today the GUI have a meeting with all clubs to sign them up to the protocols, so I cant see them being any different.

3 balls at 14 min intervals is what we are going for at Clandeboye.
That'll do me at Warrenpoint.

Haven't picked up a club in 2x months.
1st tee today.
Mini driver to the 150 market (fairway)
8 iron to within 3ft of the pin
Sunk the putt for birdie
😁😁😁

The rest of the round wasn't too shabby,
Pars or 1x over with 1x blob.
All in all, much better than expected.
A happy bunny to be back playing.
Roll on Fri for my next game.
😁😁😁

30 points. Typically best drive of the day on the first.

30 mph winds with ridiculous gusts, but better weather reported next two days. So will try again.

Course was spot on. If that was with limited staff they've done well.

We've had the same problem..... we've called this year just an 'Honourary year', though I'm not sure of the meaning other than it's 'Void' & we've just moved everything back a year. So its now 2022 for my Captains year......... hopefully. :unsure::unsure:
Good luck with your year's guys. (y)(y)

Cheers Dave. It may well be 2022 before things are back to something like normal.
