    Good stuff :) I would have gone to Aqualate but they didn't have any spare times until the afternoon...

    I tried golf once. I can understand why people like it but I absolutely hated it.

    It takes years to master, and you have to practise a lot. A frustrating but rewarding sport.

    I had a friend who played golf. It was the only time he never lied to his wife.
    If he said he was going to have a game, then he did.
    Otherwise, when he said he was going out, he played around.

    No, they've turned thhe inserts upsoide down so the ball only drops in half way down - you can still hole out.

    Oh don't, I was on a call the other day and realised I said something in a Walsall accent.

    Well done to them. Can't understand why a place like Hawkstone Park would have them raised....greenkeepers still need to handle them to cut the greens...

    More frustratingly they didn't mention it when I booked the round (and all the bunkers were GUR as well). It was all a little underwhelming....

    Bunkers are back in play for the first time this year (they had been really wet), but rakes have been removed, as per England Golf guidelines.

    We're soon likely to be able to take a guest as a greenfee if you're ever interested.

    I'm expecting the upturn to start next Thursday; 3 weeks after the Tories briefed the papers that lockdown would be over.
