  1. New one on me. Generally you join a club, play 3 rounds with a marking partner then submit those (for free) to have your initial handicap calculated. You can then take part in comps although quite often you are left out of the prizes for the first 3 competitive rounds until your handicap is validated.
  2. Some Golfshake related articles here: https://www.golfshake.com/news/view/12217/RA_and_USGA_Introduce_Single_World_Handicap_System.html https://www.golfshake.com/news/view/12224/In_Praise_of_the_New_World_Handicap_System.html
  3. NRs getting treated as nett double bogey on the system ie the first score with strokes where you score 0 stableford points. This shouldn't cause any issues in relation to your handicap.
  4. Stick everything in ! When I went to Ireland last year I took my bag and within the travel bag had a rucksac full of my gear for the trip. The travel bag also had pockets for shoes etc so there were a couple of pairs in there. On the plane I just took a small rucksac then. Goal is making sure you are under the 20kg limit !
  5. Depends on swing speed but that should likely be an improvement over the previous shaft.
  6. What shafts do the x18s have ? @Matt Holbrook may know.
  7. Morning Steve, all the society information is in the link below. However, I am in the process of doing some site tweaks, a major update to the help files and some new videos and FAQ walkthroughs The group/society system should pretty much do whatever you need, hopefully https://golfshake.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/categories/200174117-GOLF-SOCIETIES Any questions on it just ask.
  8. What are your thoughts on what we should do to grow the game ? Obvioulsy we have had the recent update to the golf handicap system to allow maximum handicaps of 54 throughout. Plus I've also read something recently about clubs allotting some Saturday morning competition tee times to golfers aged 30-50 (I'm massively generalising here), who have families, to allow them to get out, in and back home - not sure this is being done but just something suggested. So how far should golf go to adapt to modern day society ? Also ignoring equality, this should be a given ! this was mind boggling if anyone saw it: https://twitter.com/Lowri_Amlwch/status/953889323543392257

  14. Sorry my fault ! Previous version worked like this: Comp/event box: this was empty and if you were registered for an event on Golfshake you could select one of those events Notes/comments: to the right of this box was the comment box which allowed 50 characters only Issues with previous version: Comments was only 50 characters Comments obviously appeared to be the events/comp box New version: I've moved a few things around to free up space and move up the score entry along with the cool stuff like showing hole strokes, auto calc of stabledford points etc. So now: Comp/event box: this is now were the old notes was but only works as mentioned above Notes/comments: this appears under the front 9 score entry and now allows 250 characters Improvements with new version: Notes/comments now allow you to enter more Notes/comments actually show on round view pages All make sense ? I'll try and tweak to make clearer, more info on updates here: https://www.golfshake.com/news/view/12046/Golfshake_Updates_to_kick_start_2018.html

  17. Good to see you back @Dave Knatt
  18. 23.5 would be your exact handicap but your playing handicap would be 24. Get to 23.4 and your playing handicap would be 23.
  19. It is under review and may see a system change as well. TBC next week
