    No Saturday comp for me this week, had another engagement this afternoon. Played in our club's twilight comp on Wednesday night. Only a 9 hole comp, but hit 42 - 6 over the card and finished with 20 stableford points. Good enough to win the night albeit in a count back.

    Very nice Kelsey. I am a bit more conservative, my new shoes are mostly black.

    There is a cheaper option though, you are looking at the most expensive course near you. Westward Ho is a lot less expensive and possibly closer.

    I feel for you @ozdevil Oz. Our local club is completely run by volunteers. As such we are able to keep our membership very low. This year our subs were $405 for full membership. We have a 9 hole greens course but with 18 tees. Par is 73, 37 for the front nine and 36 on the back nine. A couple of holes play par 5 on one 9 and par 4 on the other with the 9th hole a par 4 then the 18th a par 3 to finish. Only having 9 holes reduces the upkeep by half. Comp fees on Saturday are $5, cart fees are $20. The good news is Coopers stubbies are $4 at the bar. If I had to pay $1400 for subs I would have to look for something else to do on a Saturday. My wages wouldn't let me pay that much for sport.

    Second round of our championships. Shot 41 on the front nine and everything seemed to be working. Started the back nine with bogey, par, bogey then the rubbish set in. Finished 89, nett 74 so really only 1 over my handicap. Sitting 3rd in B Grade, happy with that. There's always next week.

    Next Saturday is the second round of the championships, plus the monthly medal. We will have 4 stroke rounds for the championships then a couple of weeks of other formats - stableford and par then the next monthly medal. 4 rounds of stroke is the longest run we have for the year.

    I know what it's like David. Duff a 3 wood, reload and hit the best 3 wood shot of my life. Just a wasted shot and puts pressure on the other parts of your game.

    A stroke round today and the first round of the club championships. Changed a couple of things with my driving and chipping, both seemed to work OK (well today anyway!!) Shot 43 on the front nine and 45 on the back nine, not bad given I 3 putted 2 greens. Happy to have played to my handicap again. The leader in B Grade is 86, I am level runner-up 2 shots back with 1 other bloke. A long way to go though.

    Another Par round today. Showers on and off all day and while the course is holding up pretty well with the constant wet weather, there is little run, you have to hit the distance. After 9 holes I was -1, came home with 42 on the back 9 for a +1 to finish square for the day. Finished 5th overall & runner up in B Grade. The winner of the day only finished +2. Finally playing some consistent golf - next round will see if I can keep it going.

    Unfortunately with golf you get days like that. The good thing is that you are a week closer to a good round! No golf for me at the moment, both of my daughters have Covid, so I would have to wear a mask. Not something I would look forward to.

    I feel your pain Kelsey, I had 23 points last week. The good thing is it can only get better.

    After playing "rubbish" golf for about a month finally played fairly well today. Monthly Medal round, finished nett 75 so 2 over my handicap. Picked up the runner up in B Grade. Pretty happy with my driving and sank some solid putts. Ended up 13th out of 81 players.
  13. David, just a "heads up", if you're including a visit to Beerbelly they are not open on Sundays or Mondays.
  14. Yeah, have to agree there, although you would probably see more "Driven to Succeed " than "Driven to Mediocrity " signs out there. In reference to Jenny though, she is correct, brew is all of the things she said. Although I am a kits and bits brewer I enjoy the "science " that is involved in brewing. Also what different ingredients bring to a brew. I wouldn't say I am very adventurous with experimenting, but have tried raspberries in a porter and cardamom seeds in a pale ale. Both brews were good but I wouldn't drink them constantly. Glad you are enjoying your brewing hobby Jenny.
  15. Sounds a bit like me Muzz. Set the bar low enough to make it reachable!
