Might try Shields then, seems a few clubs are struggling.
lucky bastard. once a week and an evening down the range if i'm lucky, but at least that is the year round. Paying £2,000 a year for the privilege.
£520 for new member and about £680 thereafter at Barny. Not quite struggling but not beating back the hordes either
The only reason we are over subscribed is due to the fact we got rid of the £500 joining fee
The £520 isn't a joining fee it's a cut price offer for the first year's membership. Effectively a £160 joining inducement!
Played Saturday morning in that pissing down rain at South Shields, greens started to get the odd puddle as we were getting to the last few holes.
soaked to the skin but a good laugh and managed to score 30 points which wasn’t too bad considering the weather.
Well at least one fan on here is not just a fairweather golfer...or?
I play golf in any weather mate, skin is waterproof and there’s always a nice pint to look forward to after.
When I was working I never missed a Saturday comp.... now I am retired, I pick and choose, although others still go out come what may. By and large our club never closes as such, but there may be no buggies or trollies and pick and place anywhere if very wet, like now. If greens flooded give up perhaps, or if bunkers flooded drop behind. Okay it is not competition golf as such, but at least you are out hitting a golf ball with your mates, looking forward to a cup of tea and bacon buttie.
I'm gonna try and play this weekend. Sunday was a mud bath, so ****ed the idea off.
It needs to stop raining like, and a bit colder/fresher would be nice.
I hate this damp, mild, muggy, **** winter weather
There is a mob of seniors...20 30 of us meet 8.30, a draw is made 3s 4s cost £1 winning team takes the money
Saturday usually comps day
Been far too wet lately...
You’ll get quite a lot of visitors with that approach. I’m sure we could open more often if just closed an odd hole but club seem reluctant to do that. Usually manage to open for the seniors mind - probably to stop the old bs moaning .
Corporate day today at Royal Adelaide, one of the premier courses in South Australia.
Tee off at 1pm with shed loads of drinks on the course and dinner afterward. I can think of a lot worse ways to spend a monday at work
Just got in.
Should have known that a Liquor association golf day would be a big one. Drink stations at every 2nd hole, 2 carts with kegs driving around just in case you forgot to pick up another beer at a drinks station.
Oysters and beer after the round followed by a lovely fillet steak and accompaniments with more red and white than you could imagine for 100 players.
Prizes on offer were Asahi beer, wine packs, vodka and a couple of nights away at a golf resort.
I'm gonna nned to sleep this off for a week.
You cannot beat a good corporate day...sounds like you had a blast mate
It was brilliant. I found out that it wasn't actually a corporate day in the true sense of the word but a social golf club event.
They do this 15 times a year at premier courses and as they're all hotelliers the liquor companies are lining up to sponsor them.
Royal Adelaide in particular charges between $250 and $300 per round for visitors.
All of the above the social club gets for $150 per person.
Meanwhile in the NE the wind howls, the rain pours and snow is forecast for Thursday!
Yep, watching the golf in SA or the cricket in NZ...was very galling
Didn't see you were in Australia, thought ****kng hell mate, takes me back 15 years getting in at 1pm the next day
