Some are very good,Not all love to see some new players join me at the bottom of the leaderboard,Its not that tough you still got a rough guide with wind,still got a green grid,just have to be careful of the tee with no preview,all good fun.

Don't think i covered my travel expenses in week 2.Had to buy a new pair of golf shoe's they were ruined by how much sand i went in.

Matched the 1st round leader so Far,played really well Thought the course was really tough,with some tricky pins and the shaded greens which i hate putting on but i fancy it will be my best finish by a mile.



Really need to find more events to play like this,Love the courses selected and the setting if anybody can give me a pointer,got 4 spaces i can join.

Again sorry for the delay in wrapping up this week, busy weekends of late and at work have kept me from finalising again....

A drop in numbers this event which is a slight concern, we have just levelled up to Level 9! Let's keep spreading the word and hopefully last week a few peeps were to busy to commit to the 4 rounds and we'll bounce back up in numbers again.

This week is our first Mini-Major which sees entry fees bumped up to 500coins but also features a 500coin bonus, good luck to all who play, cheers!

Just giving this society a bump.

Great course choices and settings that make the game a lot of fun.  Whatever your skill level there is someone similar to compete with.  Don't let the limitations on aids put you off, you'll find it adds a lot to the game and isn't as difficult as you are expecting.

4 rounds on one course per week from the back tees so it's not time consuming.  If you're looking for another society to join then give this one a try.

Calling all sand trap players past and present...... I could continue this society if you want me to. Me and rod had very like minded ideas and tastes for for courses in this game, and I could resurrect the society if people are wanting this back?
