  1. @Andy Nixon it is coming. In the UK we are heavily bound by the tradition of red, yellow, white tees ie ladies, general men play, men competition. However, over the last few years courses have started to introduce blues/greens often for juniors. The States do this much better than use and once the updates course rating and slopes are introduced in the UK then courses should be able to do away with red, yellow, white and go with what they like. Each tee will then have a men and ladies rating and slope meaning handicaps can then be applied based on which tee you are playing. This would then make it much easier for a fourball to play off differing tees and still compete from a handicap perspective.
  2. Hi, have you been to the handicap recalculate page? From there you can set your starting handicap at 22. If you then run the recalc option with no date checkbox not tick all should be fine. Let me know. Or email support via help at golfshake dot com Regards, Darren.
  3. I thought the golf season was back but looks like the rain is back !! Hoping the sun will shine on Friday for a local round.
  4. Did you see the recent updates to Golfshake and the score tracking ? well worth reading this on how you can get the most out of Golfshake and what the recent 2018 updates mean and how you can use to analse and improve your game https://www.golfshake.com/news/view/12405/Did_you_want_to_improve_your_game_Golfshake_is_ready_to_help.html
  5. I've no idea of the effect on the balls or dishwasher but heard of a few people doing this. In terms of golf clubs did you ever seen any of the club cleaning systems at golf clubs ? a few years back you used to see a lot but they have pretty much disappeared now.
  6. It went live 5 minutes after I posted this If you ever just went to pull out your raw stats round by round for more than 5 (that is all you get on the career stats page) then go to the round section: Login - My Golfshake - Rounds - Full Round Data you can filter up to 100 rounds, set to stat track only and then click the tabs to get the full info round by round.
  7. The fix for this will go live this week. Did you see the visual shot tracking stuff ?
  8. Hi Sam, just checking back in on this. The system pulls this from round data and should show your handicap at the start of the year and end of the year for the past 5 years. The current year should then have the current month showing you current Golfshake handicap. When you add your rounds are you tracking for handicapping purposes or purely using Golfshake for stats ? TBH all the reports and analysis is based off your current handicap so if you don't track handicaps against rounds and use the manual adjust to put inline with a club handicap this will be fine.
  9. @Cecil what about the good old driving range ? not quite game style practice, unless they have a grass hitting area, but they will likely have markers set at certain distances.
  10. Bet the ground keepers love you is there not a practice area or bit of grass you could stick a pull in and do the same without effecting the greens ?
  11. I'll get this flagged in the support system and confirm back.
  12. Thanks! I think we have the switch the wrong way round on this when we did the updates Will get fixed ASAP.
  13. We played at Whittlebury Park last year - normally a 1 night 2 round event so need a venue with decent accomm. Plans being published shortly on this.
  14. Anyone see this about the Tom Morris golf shop in St Andrews being replaced by the Open shop? https://www.golfshake.com/news/view/12339/Famous_Tom_Morris_Golf_Shop_Replaced_by_Open_Merchandise_Store.html
  15. Article ut together on GS as well - Understanding Golf's New and Modernised Rule Book: https://www.golfshake.com/news/view/12304/Understanding_Golfs_New_and_Modernised_Rule_Book.html
  16. I've heard, not seen so don't quote me, but there has been talk about splitting comps into categories at some events. Not sure if anyone will actually do this though. But @northernpete you are right, very odd to increase handicaps above 28/36 to 54 to make the game more accessible and fairer to all then limit when it comes to competitive golf.

  18. Top advice. Hit the range, practice, enjoy it, have some lessons and then go from there. Lots of cheaper options in terms of kit when you first start out. Once you hone more consistency, play regular, then custom fit all day long for new kit.
  19. Hi John, welcome to the forums. Hopefully someone will get in touch shortly on this. Regards, Darren.
