So, my golf course is gone

As most of you will know my local course (Beckenham Place Park) was under threat and closed on 31st October. The 'owning' local council had let it slide in to near ruin, almost certainly with the intent of justifying its closure, and had applied for a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). Well...

Great job! Very happy for you. Now, how about some details of how you pulled it off? Thank you. Now, how about some details of how you pulled it off?

Re: The local council closed my golf course yesterday

That sucks :fk - do you Brits say that? Yes, we have re-appropriated that phrase. Along with "That blows", occasionally combining the two as "That sucks so much it blows..." ...clearly officialdom wanted the course closed and the land re-purposed That's exactly our suspicion. They just had to dress...

Re: The local council closed my golf course yesterday

My club ( http://www.braesidegolfclub.com ) has moved, as of today, to Selsdon Park. It's not very far, but it's also not exactly local. As the crow flies (do you 'mericans use that expression?)

Re: Most Common Damaging Shot to One's Score

One shot? Usually a series of two or three shots, because I'm unable to get the ball on to the green from 50 yards out.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Normal service resumed today, at least for the front nine. 102 (55/47). I had 3 nines, albeit one was on the par 5, and 3 three-putts. But I also had a birdie (the 13th again), and a par on the notoriously difficult 18th. Here's the webpage, if you need a laugh: https://dashboard.golfpadgps.com/roun...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

(*looks up the meaning of 'sandbagger'*) As a club member I'm not in control of my handicap, so I also know I'm no sandbagger. I'm also not in control of my handicap in exactly the same way I was not in control of my tee shots on the 3rd, 5th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 11th, 12th, and 15th. And in the same way...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Played in a doubles matchplay comp today. My partner and I won 3&2. My estimated score says 92 on my app. Really it's probably more like 95 or 96. Rumour has it one of our opponents thinks my handicap is wrong. It was 27 prior to Monday, 25 after. He reckons it should be more like 18! Par for the co...

JPJ, that's fantastic. It wasn't that long ago that 3-digit scores were the norm for you. You've come a long way in a few seasons. Keep up the great work! Thanks, Doug. I'm still not absolutely sure that 3-digit scores aren't still the norm, but just looking at my recent record shows that I've mana...

Monday. Summer Bank Holiday Stableford Competition. I shot 91, which is a new PB, with two birdies (another PB), for 41 points. Still waiting to waiting to work out if that's a win or not though, as someone else in my four-ball scored 40, but his handicap may have gone up after Saturday's competitio...
