  1. Golf Objectives for 2018

    My aim this year was to get my handicap out of the teens after starting on 14.2 (preferably in the downwards direction!). After bouncing around between 13.9 and 14.2 all year I got a 1.5 cut after winning a bogey comp by 3 shots with +5. As I was on 14.0 at the time I went down to 12.5. So close! I have been threatened by the handicap committee mind so I might end up there... So next year my aim is firstly to complete this year’s task plus one more shot so I’m playing off 11. My second is to break 80 on both of our courses in the year. In total I’ve had 7 80’s on one and a 79 and 6 80’s on the other so should be achievable with a bit of practice
  2. #LeafGate - thoughts ?

    As he didn't gain any advantage (he could have holed the retaken putt and carded one shot less) then there should be no penalty. Rules for the sake of it. And I thought they had removed the 'double jeapordy' rule where you effectively get penalised twice for the same transgression
  3. Week 29 2017 - destination and goals please?

    Got a Titleist Matchplay knockout at Broadway on Friday. Hoping it's better than my last round!
  4. Where we playing this WEEK?? Week 28

    Club champs this weekend for me. Play Cherington on Saturday at 1300 and Avening on Sunday but no idea what time yet. The better your score the later you play just like on tour (closest I'll ever get!)
  5. July is here WEEK 27 (cut off 9th July)

    Just about stopped aching after the 36 on Friday. Back out onto Cherington tomorrow for a monthly medal. Seeing how it chewed up and spat out some good players on Friday might be tough. In need of a cut though Shame you were disappointed Ricey, always frustrating when you're looking forward to somewhere and it doesn't live up
  6. Minchinhampton 36 Hole Comp 2017

    Well played John. Think a cut is required next year (organiser's discretion!)

  12. Minchinhampton 36 Hole Comp 2017

    Just as a point of interest for those of you playing in this comp (and those thinking about it), the members have just received the following email from the club Minchinhampton Golf Club in conjunction with the R&A is pleased to announce that the club will once again play host to an Open Championship Regional Qualifying Competition in 2018 and annually up to and including the year 2022. So after the mandatory break (you're only allowed to hold qualifying for 7 years max then a minimum 7 year break) Minchinhampton is back on The Open qualifying rota next year. Hope you all think it's worth it
  13. Had the week off so been able to get a few rounds in Tues - Cherington course at Minchinhampton. Course in great nick. Rain has really helped it with the fairways and greens getting some really good colour on them amd the rough pushing up. Golf maybe not as good Thurs - Avening course at Minchinhampton. See Tuesday Sat - Monthly stableford, Cherington course at Minchinhampton. Hoping for improvement Mon - Golfshake birthday party at The Shire. Looking forward to seeing some faces I haven't seen for some time and maybe not embarrassing myself with the clubs!
  14. Minchinhampton 36 Hole Comp 2017

    Morning everyone Just over five weeks until this comp now and just a small number of places left. There's a couple who have expressed interest and not put their name down yet (looking at you Darren Ram!) and I need to confirm the numbers to the club two weeks before the comp. If you'd like to play there's still time to get your name down and play two of the best courses in Gloucestershire (one is an Open qualifying course, the other is used for South West and inter-county matches). You can register here As a side note, I have played both the courses in the last few days. The recent rain has brought the courses to life and they are both in great condition. The greens are running quick and true, the fairways are green and lush and (unfortunately) if you are offline it is popping up and thickening. They're both a pleasure to play but a challenge at the same time
  15. Who Can Recommend a Hand Held GPS?

    Try the new Motocaddy app. Friend of mine uses it and finds it really good
