  1. We are getting lots of support related questions on the subject ! We've done it since 2005 on our system, yu just need to set the gender to beginner.
  2. We already did so long as you set the gender to beginner in the system. That then allows up to 54.
  3. @sdparkes66 I looked at something similar a while back with Arduino boards but never got round to it. Lots you could also do with GPS hole position tracking for maintenance and info etc Great project idea and lots could be done. Issue is packaging it up into a sellable product and then getting the clubs to buy it.
  4. I've told this story before but once played at Belton Woods in torrential rain. We should have walked off after 9 but our boss at the time had paid for us all and he was in the group in front and still playing. The 10th was so bad with wind and rain you couldn't see past 30 yards. My 3 ball did delibarate for a while and ended being joined by the 3 ball in our party that were behind us. We then played the next 3 holes before calling it a day - water was literally throughout everywhere pockets, shoes, bags. After drying off and warming up our boss walked in having played all 18 holes !!! I've only ever walked off 1 other course and that was on the 16th at the Belfry with @Matt Holbrook visibility was fine this time but my biggest concern was getting the clubs and gear dry for the following day !
  5. The driver came out for today's round. Ball still going after 20 holes and hitting around 12 drives !!!!
  6. This came in via Twitter does't really answer your question though After the KLM vowed never to back him again ,,,vindicated today
  7. Tried so hard with a new back of AD333 yellows. Lasted the whole of 18 holes on Friday but only 12 holes today. Lost the ball in the sun never to be found The next ball then took 4 holes to lose
  8. If I don't lose them I usually use a new ball for a around 27 holes and then confine it to my spares pocket when I take a provisional or if I lost lots of balls in a round
  9. No 100% sure but a few years back mine just stopped working when I didn't renew.
  10. We also covered some info on the old Golfshake forum for things to look out for. Obviously these will never be fully failproof when shopping online but: - does the site display the registered company information - does the site display any VAT information - is it easy to contact the company on a geographic number - do they publish their address and location information - what is the return policy like on their site obviously lots more you could add.
  11. Very old article well worth reading http://www.golfshake.com/news/view/5743/How_to_spot_a_fake_golf_club.html
  12. We try and not irritate and be responsible where possible. Thus once you add a round you shouldn't see the option to leave a review if you have left a review previously in a set number of months. Likewise, assuming you opt-in to the email notification, you won't get the email reminder if you have also reviewed recently. Thanks for the post though.
  13. Some stats from the Golfshake summer survey which you can still complete here: http://www.golfshake.com/news/view/11579/Golfshake_2017_Summer_Survey.html 52% of golfers travel less then 20mins to their home/regular club 22% travel 20-30 mins to their home/regular club 61% of golfers will travel up to 2 hours for a round of golf 10% will travel over 4 hours just for a round ! Interestingly, 65% of club members travel less than 20mins to their home/regular club. For non club members it is only 37%
  14. I've done the opposite and joined a club so I can play more, play when I want and play what I want ie 5 holes, 9 holes, full 18 etc
  15. 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.
  16. 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 !
