    How far is too far !?

    Have driven from Derby to Exeter for a round, North Wales a few times and quite a lot of North Yorkshire too. Once flew up and back to play The Carrick at Loch Lomond in a day, but that was, er, research for Golfshake...

    Are you happy to see the PGA on the BBC?

    I've watched a fair bit of the BBC's coverage on the red button, Mrs V has been working late and I've got to say that it has been pretty amateurish stuff, especially when compared to Sky. They are just entirely relying on the host broadcasters feed, three out of the four or so commentary team only seem to be able to drone on in a monotone drawl and they don't even seem capable of silencing the oh so american dramatic incidental music. I'm not saying that Sky is perfect, but at least they have Wayne Riley on course at majors to liven it up a a bit.

    Drones on vLogs

    Still not convinced about the dangers of aircraft being hit by drones, especially the engines. How much does one weigh? Maybe some of the heavier ones will be quite a weight, but your average leisure version? I know for a fact that an engine can ingest a 2 kg duckling travelling at Mach 0.9 and still keep going so I can't imagine a kilo of plastic doing a huge amount of damage....

    No more golf

    Me too. A friend You see going to the pub usually involves coming back drunk, whereas a game of golf can take hours. Apparently. Reminds me of a joke about a man who was having an affair, used to spend the afternoon in bed with his mistress and then cover his golf shoes in grass. When his wife asked what he'd be doing all day he said that he been in bed with his mistress, but she took one look at his golf shoes and said 'liar, you've been playing golf...'

    Hi there Algolf. There are a couple of members in and around the Leeds area in our society and slightly farther afield (I play and am based in Derby!). Go and have a look on our website, we're always looking for new guys. Most of us are alright....

    Minchinhampton 36 Hole Comp 2017

    You'll be fine, it's just like a couple of rounds on a pitch and putt with a longer walk in between holes. And some water. And with some more hills. And wicked greens. Still, the chips are lovely

    Has anyone played Woodhall Spa

    Played both on the same day a couple of years ago, both really good courses. Shame it was bucketing down with rain most of the day but held up really well. One of the courses looks like the Somme after a bombardment, sooo many bunkers - most of which I avoided

    Groove maintenance for irons

    I got myself a cheap one, still use it. It's not really about sharpening the grooves, it's just opening the lower ones up a bit because the edges roll over. Takes a bit of practice to use one on the later V grooves but it's not that hard to do. Always clean the mud out first and use a little drop of oil to lubricate the sharpener. I then use my carborundum oil stones to hone the face flat afterwards - that does sharpen the edges! Then clean again. Only problem I found was that it took the paint out of the bottom of the grooves.
