oh the trials and tribulations of having to mingle with the common folk on WRX.  I feel bad you are forced to read the contrived drivel of people that are not as ELITE as you on the course.

Why on earth would anyone want to have to read BS from a guy who is not scratch or better, obviously just a waste of space.

It's actually not a bad idea. A forum with a handicap range could be useful for those handicap ranges. OP rather than focus in on better players (I'm scratch) you should give consideration to how your proposal could be beneficial for all handicap ranges.

The idea is good, it is just presented a bit too bourgeois.

I have another idea...how about pinned threads for "best driver", "best 3wood", "best hybrid", and whatever iron questions always have new threads. A new thread on any of the pinned club topics gets a 3 day no posting ban...

Imagine the drama this could create, you are having a bad round, things aren't going great but you can tell all your buddies that you dug deep to make sure that you stayed at scratch so you could keep posting in a forum...bore off!

I am all for it but only if us golfers who suck can pay to see whats posted there. Of course we can't post our drivel but we surely could benefit from the inspired words of the pro's. I personally would pay any fee just to catch a glimpse into the world of legends.
