3 years ago I embarrassed myself at the Belfry playing the Brabazon, attending a corporate day with some clients.  Had my Dads sticks, some used and probably found golf balls, and shoes which were a size too small.  I was moved on for slow play at least 4 times, and must have truly annoyed my playing partners.  I vowed never to do that again.

3 years on I'm playing to 12, have been fortunate to play some incredible tracks in England, the US and Europe, and will get to single figures by the end of next year.

All in on the gear game too, Rickie hi-tops, Nike Jordans, the new Mizuno MP18s and more golf shirts than I care for.  Amazing game, amazing places and some amazing people! Looking forward to the discussion!

Hi Pal, I've just re kindled my use of this forum and am from Cirencester UK.
Great achievement in such a short time and we all got to start somewhere! Hope you got shoes that fit now, I once played in a pair I forgot we're too small and the experience nearly crippled me!

I grew up playing golf in and around Bradford, but I don't think I've played any courses around Wakefield. Any good courses? I have hardly played the Leeds courses, either. I once passed on a chance to play Pannal (long way from you), and tried to wangle an invite to Alwoodley, but that didn't work out.
Anyway, congratulations on the rapid handicap drop.

Cheers both - forums are all new to me....haven't played in either Bradford or Cirencester - any you'd recommend.  I'm a member at Waterton Park which is a great track, more challenging than many in the area!

Keep practicing - the guy I'm having lessons with has just changed my grip for the winter.....it's a long hard road!

Hi there. Sheffield here. We used to have corporate membership at Waterton. In fact  one day the pro came out in a caddy car to tell me the wheels had been stolen from my car! Do you go over the lake on 13 or lay up? I assume theres still the canada goose poop problem? The Belfry (Brabazon) is the most overated course i have ever played.

Hahahaha, fortunately no wheels stolen since I've been a member.  What year was that!?

Lay up on 13, little reward for clearing the lake, horrible second when you could leave yourself 120/130 over the lake - no other choice in my mind.

Goose poop still an issue, the foxes haven't cleared them all out yet - a bit easier this time of year.

Which course in Sheffield do you play?

Member at the Grange Rotherham. Also play Tankersley, Wakefield, Bondhay. Thybergh (rotherham). Anywhere really. Waterton membership was about 12 years ago. I think theyve gone broke since.
