    New (to me) clubs

    Watching what speed you develop. The flexible shaft also has its advantages, you must understand what type of players you are to choose the right club. Professional golfers and can play with such stable clubs, yet it will be difficult for them to perform lateral twisted strokes of the draw and fade. At the same time, it will be extremely difficult for an inexperienced golfer to play with a club intended for a professional. In this article https://golfwithasmile.com/clubs/best-golf-clubs-for-seniors/ you can see how to choose a golf club that suits you.

    Indoor Golf Simulator

    A golf simulator allows golf to be played on a graphically or photographically simulated driving range or golf course, usually in an indoor setting. It is a technical system used by some golfers to continue their sport regardless of weather and time of day in converted premises. Simulators have been available since the early 1970s, and systems range in cost from compact units costing well under $200 that work with a computer or video game console, to sophisticated ones costing tens of thousands of dollars. Advanced systems may utilize a dedicated room, hitting screen, projector, and other paraphernalia. Simpler simulators typically do not possess built-in software, but measure the movement of the hand-held sensor and feed the information to the video game. The information received is then translated into an action of some sort, usually hitting the ball. More advanced simulators often come with their own software, allowing the user to use the system as if they were on a driving range. Relying on a battery of environmental sensors, the software tracks each shot and represents the entire shot, from impact to how the ball bounces visually on screen. In this way, the golfer has a detailed analysis of the entire flight of the ball which can be used for practice or training. It utilizes a projected landscape, sometimes with natural images. A computer calculates the expected trajectory of the golf ball from data gathered on the swing, and the image of the golf ball flight is then simulated on the screen via a projector. Golf simulators need to present club speed, club path, clubface angle at impact, ball speed, ball path, horizontal and vertical launch angle, and spin. There are several types of measurement systems used in golf simulation to achieve this, such as simulator mats, sonic sound systems, optical sensor arrays, radar and camera ball tracking systems.

    Golf Society - South Yorkshire

    Hi James, Firstly thank you for the reply, out of all the groups I posted on you are the only person to reply. Your Facebook group sounds perfect and you shall receive a facebook request from me very shortly. I look forward to finding out more via Facebook and more importantly playing a round with you and the OBAHUGS members. Cheers, Rich
  15. Hi Golfers I run a Facebook only Golf Society called OBAHUGS which has 30+ members from Sheffield, Doncaster, Rotherham, Pontefract and more areas. We have around 20-30 events to join every year, including local and regional rounds, weekends away, a knock out singles cup, a Ryder Cup against a southern society, an East Coast Masters, a trip to Portugal, a curry night and more. We also have live scoring leaderboards on an App as we play so you can see who is winning or playing well (or badly). We have a small membership fee of around £20 (determined each year at an AGM) and we also have money pots and prizes for every single round. The only criteria is that you have to be playing to a 28 handicap or better and we play ready golf rules, the aim of the whole society is to enjoy golf with some really good people. If you want to join, you really need to be on Facebook ... search for OBAHUGS and request to join that will come to me and I will message you back with all the details. We have a really good laugh as well as play amazing courses and good (and bad\) golf. We have players from 28 (that's our minimum handicap) down to 2 handicap so a good range of players. Get in touch and I am sure you'll like what you see. Cheers James

  18. Friday open pairs and you play on hollow tinned sanded greens for £35 a man, course is lovely but the GREENS are poor. good luck if you book here for a future event. For me the course is only as good as it's greens! your view?

  20. Hi Iain, I am in Nottingham which is not that close but also not that far. Perhaos we could arrange something at a course inbetween? Philip
  21. Hi, i am new on here. I have played golf for many years but only now and again. I am now starting to try play more and I would love to find some people who might be up for a game now and again with a not very good player. I dont have a handicap, but I guess I would be around a 30, hopefully improving with more regular play. I do play at a good pace and I'm happy to play with any level. I am often free in the week in the afternoon and also weekends.
  22. Hi everyone I'm back. My last post was November 2017, it was called turning my dream into reality. This post should be called turning my dream into a nightmare. I had a replica of the 17th green at Sawgrass built on my land it looks and plays amazing. I've built 3 tee boxes white, yellow and red, 112, 90 & 65 yards to green. On the green there are 5 pin placements. I also have a drop zone and two other chipping zones around the green. All this means, there are 30 different ways to play the hole. I have built targets in the ground for chipping practice and a bunker that you can practice in to three pins, that make this a greenside bunker. There is also a driving cage to help blow off the cobwebs. After a lot of arguing and expense I finally got permission to open this to the public. This is where the nightmare starts, insurance, health and safety plus business rates don't come cheap which means I need to earn a certain figure in order to keep the facility open. In the six weeks I've been open I've taken what I need to earn on a weekly basis. I'm struggling with advertising, nothing seems to be working. This is where I need the golfshake members to help me. I'm on facebook, twitter and Instagram where you will find all the info, prices etc. I'm based in Woodhall Spa Lincolnshire.
