  1. We (Harlow Hill Golf Society) are a relatively new (2 years old) golf society, predominantly based out of North/West Yorkshire, however, we do have a couple of members based in Scotland and the Midlands. We originally set up as a group of friends, following retirement from an amateur football team, Harlow Hill FC in Harrogate. The natural order of things took place and we now try to find our successes, failures, delights and frustrations on the Golf course as opposed to the football field. We have had 14 members in our first 2 years but are looking to build on this and are keen to recruit anyone looking to play some semi regular golf within a society outside of a club environment. We have a good range of golfers, mainly at the higher end of the scale, ranging from 16 through to 28 and a couple still learning. We try to promote fairly regular games/matches with cup competitions and aim for 2 trips a year, either domestically or abroad. Any interest please let me know and I'd happy to share more info. Thanks Steve

  3. Copsewood Grange (Coventry)

    Just had a fantastic morning out at Copsewood Grange Golf Club, this was organised for me by Rob Nutt (thanks very much).. I've been "clubless" for a few months and have been using Ardencote as somewhere to have some quiet rounds and keep myself moving, as mentioned Rob organised for me to take part in the "Sunday Swindle"... Got to say, I had a fantastic time, the members were really friendly and welcoming, I was made to feel at home and totally at ease.. The course, for me, I loved it, bearing in mind we've had some miserable weather, and the course is built on a flood plane, I found it to be amazingly dry, yes, a few GUR areas, but nothing that affected the game too much. Lot's of nice tight tree lined holes, and a great Par 5, with an S shape ! From what I understand, a lot of the course upkeep is by volunteers, which goes to show how loved this place is that people will happily give up their time to help out. This dedication does show though, it really is a nice place, and I thoroughly recommend going there for a round ... To top off my day, I closed the card with 35 points (13/22) !! Thanks again Rob.
  4. Hi, I'm trying to find a golf partner (or two) to play a round once or twice a month on a weekend. I'm in Stoke Newington and would like to play North East London, within the M25, although happy to travel further if needed. Thanks Patrick
  5. Handicap Question

    So I'm 19 and been playing golf years but only recently through the app I've got a handicap. It's currently 13 but coming down quite quickly. I'm looking at entering a few local amateur tournaments and was wondering if my handicap certificate through golf shake is enough to enter or if it would have to be an official certificate through being a member of a club? Also on the applications it asks what club I'm a member at. Cheers Tom

  10. Did adidas stop making Asym boost shoes. I was impressed with the technology but I can't find any in the latest products. So, the question is, have they changed the name to something else or did they realised the technology doesn't work?

  14. Christmas is coming!!

    Afternoon All. Just over a week away until Christmas starts to kick in now. I see a lot of post about 'Must have xmas gifts' 'Stocking Fillers' and 'Rubbish golfers gifts' which are all enjoyable and funny as I have received some awful gift over the years (Last year my sister got me some of those golf ball finder glasses.......) So I'm asking 3 questions to everyone. 1. Best Xmas Gift and why 2. Worst Xmas gift 3. What's on the list this year? Here are my answers 1. Best gift was a Callaway stand bag last year - Not an extra ordinary gift but was chosen by my lady who knows nothing about golf and as a complete surprise she got it spot on. 2. As above - Those glasses were terrible. 3. This year I am getting an Etiquis golf watch which looks lovely!
  15. I have recently started playing golf with my son who has a full time job and doesn't want to play golf in the winter. I don't really know anyone else who plays in my area. I am therefore looking for a novice like myself. I can play in the week but not at weekends. Peter

  17. New Wedges

    So I was just wondering how often people change their wedges? I've only ever owned 2 sets of wedges in 6 years and I only replaced the original wedges because I wanted to change lofts to bridge a gap between other clubs.
  18. Ryder Cup Thread

    Ok, so just over 2 weeks to go until the Ryder Cup, I'm silly excited, It doesn't get better in golf when match play of this standard comes along with so much up for grabs. So just thought Id start a general thread so anyone that also loves the Ryder Cup. So what do you think of the captains picks for both teams? What do you think the eventual outcome will be? Anyone not that interested?

  21. I have been playing on and off for around 12 years, since i was 18. My struggle is finding a consistent playing partner, so I keep having to stop which is really hampering my progress. I would be looking for someone based in Leicestershire, preferably near Hinckley LE10, to play once a week Saturday or Sunday. I am not a slow golfer but I am looking to improve, I would be willing to play with any ability golfer as we could hopefully help each other.

  24. 33 on a 9-hole Par 3 course

    Hi all, I started playing golf properly in September 2015, although I'd played on a small pitch and putt many times in the past. Due to time/cost and geography, I currently only play on 9-hole par-3 pitch & putts or PlayGolf London in Northwick Park (an executive golf course, Par 29, two par 4s and rest par 3s). My best on Northwick Park is a 48 over nine holes. However, Harrow on the Hill Pitch & Putt, I've gone round 18 holes in 70 (+16) and did the back nine in 33 (+6). Naturally, I was delighted with the latter and my score gets lower every week. Before that, I got a +9 on the back nine and genuinely feel like I can get a birdie or par on every hole. I'm aware every course is different and also aware opinions generally shouldn't affect anyone's game! That said, I've read a lot from golfers/on the internet questioning short par-3 courses or dismissing them as something just to practice your chipping on. So I was wondering what everyone's thoughts are on short par 3 9-hole courses? I'm aware my long game lags far behind and, due to my driving and the cost of a membership fee, I wouldn't even attempt a long course right now. I would be delighted to see myself as a short-game specialist and ultimately secure an even par or below par round on a 9-hole par 3 course (or even over 18 holes on that course). But would that be considered a good achievement or would most golfers frown upon this as something only beginners would be interested in? Appreciate any feedback!
  25. Funny Golf YouTube Videos

    Evening All I have started to dabble in some on course filming. I know there is a fair few Pro's who already do this type of thing but I get bored of watching them shoot level par everywhere they go and thought people might want to watch something they can relate too. Well here are my first 2 videos..... and Let me know what you think and please feel free to subscribe.
