Had a wee day out down at Archerfield yesterday (only a wee bit over the 5 miles...). Played with my F-I-L and one of his cronies, a man who has held the Claret Jug more times than Tiger.

Great afternoon for it yesterday and I must say the Fidra was in great shape despite only being 17 holes at the moment as the 4th green gets completely changed (and what a change it is too).

Have to admit the shoulder is a wee bit tight this morning so day of rest today.

Only played the Firda once, really enjoyed it.
Did you get your shoes cleaned? Not a fan of that aspect of Archerfield myself.
The clubhouse is closed at the moment. Its just the halfway huts that are open with the seating outside well spaced out.
But hot food and drinks are still available which is good, the venison bolognese was superb.

Best time ever to have a hole in one... Nobody in the clubhouse to buy drinks for. :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
Mmm - I'm not someone who associates drinking with golf anymore - but I'd have been happy for it to go in in company and delighted to be in a clubhouse buying a round. Having a hole in one while on my own is a nightmare thought though - I'll be aiming an inch to the right on Sunday when I'm on the same tee.

Of course, going indoors is certain death these days!

Venison bolognese is not for me but brilliant to hear you can get food. Nothing at all available at my club, not even a toilet.

Haven't really followed today's announcement but has it changed anything?
Apart from 3 balls virtually nothing.
Still can't go into someone's house except for a quick pee. So many people being let down (shop keepers, pub owners, families etc) A joke but come to expect it!

Getting a bit more concerned with our trip next month! Most courses in England are allowing 4 ball visitors now, hopefully Scotland isn't too far behind!

I think a few open comps will be cancelled unless the 5 mile travel rule is changed :cry:
It is not a rule, it's a guideline. ;) I agree that opens will be cancelled but I would hope that they had cancelled them already.

ScotGov have just done a total u-turn and are saying all pupils will be in school from August 10 with zero social distancing requirements.

I think things will be pretty much back to normal by August.

I spoke to 2 clubs today re senior opens , both are waiting to see what phase 3 will allow before deciding.

After scrolling through these posts, I'm thrilled that my Scottish friends are playing again. After all, you guys invented the game. Also, it appears you are doing a better job that we are at containing the virus. We're all over the place here in the states. I'm looking forward to visiting your wonderful country in the future. Our current plans are to attend The Open at St. Andrews in 2022. Hopefully, we'll all be "out of the woods" by then.
