As readers of this blog will know, over the last few months I have been playing a lot more golf. I have been trying a number of courses in my local area to get a sense of which is best. Having played a few I have made a decision and finally joined a golf club in order to inspire me to play more and improve my game.Continue reading “Joining a golf club”
My old pair of golf shoes where Dunlop Biom 100 and they have served we reasonably well considering they were only £24.99. If they have done 40 rounds of 18 holes I think that would be conservative. However, they have had their day now with cuts to the side and leaking water.Continue reading “New golf shoes – Slazenger v100”
After having my first golf lessons and they going out of the course for a number of rounds, it was inevitable that there would be one area (more than others) that I was going to need help with. That area is without doubt off the tee with the driver. Therefore I have set about trying to be more consistent, and this is what I am doing.Continue reading “Looking for more consistency with the driver”

As a result of this I have been putting in a lot of effort into getting better and better, cumulating in me have some golf lessons (more on that later). As part of this one thing I did notice all the pros have a little book in their back pocket – the yardage book.Continue reading “How to make a golf course yardage book”
I have played golf for some time but recently got back playing more regularly. I decided that I would try out some lessons, something which I have never done.
In this post I will outline what I learned and why is it probably a really good idea for you to have some lessons, if you want to improve your golf game.Continue reading “My first lessons in golf”
I have actually been a golfer since about the age of 14 or so, when I started playing golf at the weekends with school friends and dads at the local municipal 9-hole course.
However after playing for a long time, life got in the way and I stopped playing regularly, just playing the occasional round in the summer months.
Recently that has all changed, I am now a golfer again!Continue reading “My golfing journey – the start”
Well, to be honest although a beach is involved it was not what you would call a beach holiday. However, it was a terrific week away with family, in a nice Lodge with a lovely hot tub!Continue reading “A Barmouth Bay beach holiday”
