Here there & everywhere...
More willing to travel these days so have Stoke Rochford, Sleaford, Spalding, Greetham Valley, Rutland Water etc. Going back to Stoke is the prime option but need to see how they are once this is over
I’d be Looking to see how they all coped over the winter, I know we did some deals with Sleaford I think at Woodhall as there course was unplayed for months!

I enjoy my annual knock around Stoke Rochford, friendly clubhouse also.

It might be a while. But all being well the fairways should be in cracking nick as I believe one of the off-course greens team is staying with the Head Greenkeeper in his house on course to keep things cut. And they'll be able to finish the couple of new bunkers they hadn't quite completed. Plus with no golf the new turf around the new bunkers will have plenty of time to get well bedded in - undisturbed by size 10s. Desperately seeking a golfing upside to this crisis.
That’s some dedication!

Given that they are so spending billions on super hospitals I think we are many months away from the peak. Courses may be open before October but I doubt it . Let’s see what happens in China as they reopen over there. Will we all lose our competition status?????????

Big dilemma!!!!!

I am cleaning clubs and tidying golf bag.

At this time of year I take out the woolly hat, winter mitts and extra towels and put in sun cream!

I wonder if all the winter stuff needs to stay put in case my next round is in the blooming winter! :)
Haha. Very possibly as I think this is a long haul situation now and not a 3 week fix.

I fear we are playing the long game. Trying to draw this thing out to minimize deaths.

I dont disagree with the tactic but people need to realise this wont be going away for quite some time.

It's taken wuhan 3 months on strict lock down to get a handle on it.

If theres any golf this summer I'd be happy. Next few weeks we will have a better idea.
Wuhan was the absolute epicenter of this whole mess. Other parts of China relaxed before then. Saying that they were able to carry out a far more dedicated lock down than we are doing so I'm not sure what model or timescale we will follow.

I'm hoping August sometime.

I was already considering not renewing my membership next year. This could push me to deciding. I've not played 18 holes since early October I think, only managed maybe 5 rounds of 9ish holes.

No fault of the club, but £1000 for at best 3 months of golf just isn't value for money. I already lose half the comps every year due to working every other weekend.

But at the end of the day, what's a round of golf when 100's of people are dying everyday.

I may have been overly hopeful.
I moved my clubs, and golfing paraphernalia, from my “winter” carry bag into my “summer” trolley bag.
Perhaps I’ll be carrying again next time I play 🤷?

The answer to when do I golf again is a big dont know.
Just got to be as positive as possible my own reconning is August being worst case scenario but hopefully sooner.

Some can handle isolation better than others, just for that reason I think it's better to keep as positive as possible.
