  1. Nobody playing golf anymore?? Week 33

    I couldn't play the old course on a sunny clear day - there would be too many walkers !!! Sunday morning was pretty bad and thankfully Monday afternoon they'd all gone back to work and it was drizzly so not many about.
  2. Nobody playing golf anymore?? Week 33

    Just a small weekend away playing Nefryn with @Matt Holbrook Fantastic course and great to play the Old course which everyone will know from the photos. Short, quirky, scenic but tough with the public walking the flow of the old course. The new was okay and Ioved the front course !

  11. Speed Golf

    Maybe we should change this post to what is the fastest round you have played? I've done a twilight on my own with a bit of running once I got to the 12th hole in 2hours 10minutes.
  12. Speed Golf

    I listened to a super talk today from that at an England Golf conference, check them out here: http://britishspeedgolf.co.uk/ or Twitter @speedgolfuk the concept is basically to bring something new and innovative to golf by combining playing and running. Lots of decisions to be made around which clubs you carry etc You Speed Golf score is a combination of your golf score and time of the round.
  13. WHY IS IT?

    ? lost me but doesn't take much
  14. Pessimistic

    I've been in touch with the person direct earlier today. All competitions that are run are always posted online and generally the competitions are to reward and provide exclusives to the members and the online audience/readers. You can view all the past winners here - http://www.golfshake.com/competitions/winners/ Also as part of the competitions there isn't a requirement for winners to share info/pictures of their prizes online so you don't always hear anything post win but one of the recent comps there was an article written which you can read about here: http://www.golfshake.com/news/view/11218/Putt_to_South_Carolina_Winner_Full_Experience_Trip_Review.html
  15. Course reviews

    Yup. Trying hard to get the reviews to be more meaningful - insights into current course set-up and overview for visitors. Not how someone played or the weather conditions
