I’m not sure yet with the towels. I may find a fluffy version and a waffle version and let people choose. For some reason the towel companies have been terrible at getting back to me.

The markers are between the two. Very chunky and heavy, but not as big as a casino chip. Think they’re just about an inch in diameter. Maybe a touch more.

So what’s the deal with the ball markers (in the U.S.)? I can never seem to have enough of the big heavy metal ball markers that I never use on the course. :slight_smile: When can we get some?

And they are beautiful. They look lovely starting up at you from the green as I prepare for my 4th putt of the hole. Would recommend :open_hands:t2:

Just gotta put the order in and get em made. Takes a couple of weeks.

I forgot to mention in the big post that I can get up to 3 initials on each one to personalise them. :slight_smile:

** UPDATE **


I have given everyone 2 weeks (ish) to add orders and just gone through and narrowed it down by removing the things either no-one wanted, or that had very low numbers. I have contacted those who cant get what they wanted.

So the reduced sheet is now the final list of available items. If you haven’t already done so, go in and stick your name down for something.

I’ll give it a few days and then start taking money and ordering things by the start of next week.

Yeah but I get to play it every day, so… :man_shrugging:t4:

This week I have 36 at Sunningdale, then Hankley Common and Camberley Heath the next day.

Yesterday I played Minchinhampton Old and Kington on Friday. Both of which I’m taking you to one day when you’re over, along with Cleeve Hill…

Hello all,
After reading the constitution and a number of posts- I think this is fantastic! Hoping I did this correctly-, I have added my info to the Texas portion of the sheet. If there is anything I can do to be of service, please let me know!
I play with the Silver Club Golfing Society, and have participated in some of the Broken Tee events (Golfers Journal).I have always enjoyed meeting and spending time with like minded golfers.
I will be a part of the Sweetens Cove group in a couple of weeks and look forward to meeting some of you soon.

Paging @The_Cad_Says and the good people of the UK Chapter:

There’s a very real possibility I will be in Cardiff or Swansea come late October or early November. If I have two rounds, where do I play (let’s keep it reasonable in price, particularly considering exchange rate for us folks in the America)? I can have access to a car if need be.

Last time I was over I had every intent to play Porthcawl, Pennard, and Southerndown. What am I missing? I presume Porthcawl is a must-play, but if there’s something less expensive and equally memorable, I’m in. And if I’m able to make it happen, does anyone happen to want to join up? I have no other information regarding dates at this point, as it’s somewhat speculative yet somewhat likely that I’ll make the trip over. COVID’s a bitch.

Bore da ! I’m living in Swansea so if you do need anything just give me a shout. One issue you may face is we have gone into a local lockdown, same as Cardiff. Unfortunately this means you cannot enter or leave the county of Swansea without being liable to fines ! That said, I hope it gets removed pretty soon. I don’t want to dampen your hopes but I don’t want you to have false excitement only to be let down !

Yeah, the whole country is in quarantine, so if you do come from the US you’re supposed to stay isolated for 2 weeks. Might fuck up the golf plans!

If you can get over and get out, all of those courses are superb. Porthcawl is on the rich side, though we do have a member in the group who I’m sure will take you out as a member guest if he’s around when you’re there. Again, depends on the lockdown situation.

Depending on your dates, the GB&I Shut is on the 25th & 26th October at Royal North Devon and Saunton East. £200 for 2 rounds, dinner, bed & breakfast.

I’m in Nashville and interested in joining a chapter. What’s the process? It doesn’t seem like there is a TN chapter, so I was also unsure which chapter I’d be joining. Thanks!

Funnily enough, someone just asked me to start one. I must get into the doc and update it.

I’ll get you his name and hook you guys up, but if you scroll up here you’ll find him. :smiley:

Appreciate the info!

I don’t know how it’s going to work since I will likely be there for work. I know none of the logistics, but I’ll get on the plane when they tell me to! Here’s hoping it works out.

@The_Cad_Says It’s expensive, but looks quite fun. I’m more okay with paying those prices since it’s not too often I get to make it over the pond, so the extra cost is just kind of assumed and accepted. I want to say after Nov. 1 it’s 75 quid. Someone’s got to pay more to keep y’all’s membership costs low!
