 Does Farleigh GC really exist ?
i tried several times to contact the Proshop this morning but to no avail.....

I am trying to arrange my Matchplay (Pine Tree golf society's one) for Monday 31st.

will try again tomorrow but it is very frustrating.

But. I am sure this will not spoil the fun & enjoyment on the TSG Open.


"Vive Le TSG" ,

 I had no problems getting through to the pro shop at farleigh. Went from ansaphone to person in a couple of rings. I was directed down a fair few cart paths by my satnav though.  

It does exist although it is a long mile from the front gate to the club house.

An interesting layout lots of elevation changes, some quite extreme. Greens slickest i have played in the uk

Agree with Steve the drive from the road to the clubhouse is indeed forever and you need to beware golfers crossing. I have not played there for years, but the welcome was always a warm one.  They had only recently had a major refurb, but the clubhouse is smashing, although the ladies changing room sparse.  Hopefully there is something in there now. Now - for those who have had a recent practice game, 1 or 2 shots off their handicap?

everyone has the opportunity to play beforehand...why penalise those who do?

As I said in my review of the course..it is not a typical 'mountain 'course at all..the pro even refers to it as more of an inland links type of course..reason..there are very few trees which come into play. As a result, it can get windy, but I was fortunate enough to play on a gloriously sunny day with a gentle breeze. Hopefully, the weather will improve for this weekend, when the course can be seen in all its glory, and I wager no-one will be disappointed.

 Awh Alan - it was a bit of fun. All a bit of golf banter.

Banter is always fun, and i like to visit a course beforehand, just so i know where i can expect to lose balls. I would wager a fair few lost balls on first blue hole. For reasons that are clear to me and that may not appear obvious.

Judy is right, the ladies dressing room is a little spartan... and whilst the course may not disappoint i believe it will frustrate...

Anyway best of luck to those that can find their way on the long drive.

 Weather forecast suggests a bright sunny day, 22 degrees and 12 mph winds from the south west... at least the breeze will keep us cool..

It could be asked Steve, how do you know anything about the ladies changing room? Will you be wearing a skirt and playing from the red tees in the hope of winning the ladies trophy as you have all the others already.

 Mr Slater quoting loss of balls may be the key as to how he got into the ladies changing room.  Loving Mr Hunt's dry banter about the Slater run of wins. Mr Consistent for sure.  Rest assured we will update you on the state of the ladies changing room as I know you readers are holding your breath to hear this news

 The clue is in the name, a changing room, however i have no chance of winning the ladies competition, there is far too much proper talent amongst the ladies of the TSG.  
When i visited it had been raining and spectacles wete blurred so i chanced upon the ladies changing room by accident. That will be the basis of my defence when the case goes to court.

The case for the defence rests...
