I still have mine to use but I won't get a chance for a couple of weeks. I'm hoping the weather holds. You'll have a great time I'm sure. Just don't be afraid to give those putts a good rap (y)
played The Filly today. Course looked lovely, fairways in decent nick, greens a bit bumpy, but it is the middle of January! Didn't play great, but thoroughly enjoyed it anyway. 2 for 1 on food was a bonus afterwards.

You can taste the money there can't you. Lovely set up. Good news on the food front, it's a bit scary otherwise.

It's a great setup, we had a laugh yesterday comparing the locker room to our rather ramshackle one! Everything is top class, must have cost a fortune.

Would be interested to know if they actually make a profit or if it's just a vanity project for Wylie?

Great question. Hopefully it does as if not that makes it vulnerable if he gets bored. It's great to have a set up at that level in the area.

Out in 18 points, back in 22 points. The front 9 was clumsy. Got into a good position on so many holes then totally chunked it. The back 9 was good apart from the obligatory bogey on the last hole. 40 points got me 2nd place, 2 points behind the winner.

Didn't play myself today, but did take my lad along to kids group training session. Never shown interest till asking me this week, never even held a club before I'm not the sort of parent that makes kids Do sports just because I do.

But once the pro set him up and got his grip going he was hitting some nice little shots and they all had a distance challenge where if they could carry the ball over top of 50yard maker they won a choccy bar from the shop. He managed to do it twice with the little clubs they gave him not bad for a small built 8 year old who never held a club before so he got a choccy bar and a ribena.

Afterwards pro said he has a good understanding of what he was told to do and gave him a little 9 iron and putter to borrow for practising with until he decides if he wants to carry on and buy his own set..

One of my happiest golfing days even without playing.

Quick 10 hole scratch matchplay against the junior captain today. Played poorly TBH. 5 over gross with some very poor approach shots from 120 in. Putter was average as well. Lost 2 and 1 and fully deserved it.
Still, I have to console myself with the fact that the kid is in the Lancashire team and is a very decent little 14yr old 👍👍

Shot an 83 !!!!! For 45 points !!! Previous lowest score was 89 so i am chuffed to bits !
Irons clicked and from 120 in i was hitting the green every time which is where i have lost a lot of shots in the past. Also played the same ball for the entire round. Could have been better as well with a couple of 3 putts and a 4 putt :poop:

Overall im sat here with a beer now very very happy (y)

Played a course today that I haven't played before, Wycombe Heights. Just a friendly two ball with a mate. It's very hilly there and very windy since you're up quite high (hence Wycombe "Heights" I guess!).

I started off hitting it well but getting unlucky with the slopes and the wind, then hitting it rubbish for a while, then eventually I found a way to score some points on the back nine. Ended up with 31 points which was ok I guess. I was impressed with the course, it was in really good nick with good fairways and quick greens that totally undid me on a couple of occasions. Some interesting holes as well with a couple of doglegs and a few downhillers where club selection is key.

Decent weather, not too cold and the rain held off. Good day overall.

That's awesome.
A few months ago I also bested my previous best and shot a gross 6 over ............................. never been close before.
Never been close since, as it happens.
What I'm saying is that you now know you can do it, just don't expect to do it next time you play like I thought I would!
Great scoring and enjoy that beer. (y)
