Posted by Mick Mac 26 March, 2009 21:14

Yes I know, noone will want this thread apart from me maybe, but I'm going to do it anyway, so here goes for talking to myself:

Watching Setanta tonight (that great value credit crunch sports channel @ £10 p/m) and the US golf is on. Tiger is back and guess what he is like 1 shot behind the leaders in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. I thought he might never be the same again after his operation, but so much for that thought.

He's playing with Paddy Harrington today and Padraig is 4 behind in the first round.

Easter weekend and Harrington is going for what Paddy Power are calling stage 3 of the Paddy Slam. Only 3 golfers have ever won 3 majors in succession, Woods, Nicklaus and Hogan. Wouldn't Harrington love to add his name to that list.

Any (golf) comments gratefully received......

Is it possible for non-members to play at Dulwich Golf Course?
Have played there once when a work colleague and myself went with our boss who was a member. He told us to become a member he had to be nominated by a member(s?) and once that was ok'd, he then had to pass an interview with the club captain!..

You can probably play without a member red devil, but to avoid disappointment you should call the pro shop in advance. I'd imagine its about £40 to play without a member on a weekday.

Thanks Mick, I'll give them a call to find out, will probably check out if there's a pro who does lessons, I'm a bit rusty...

Mick Mac is spot on re: prices and timeslots from when I last played at Dulwich. I was dissapointed by the course itself however

Still - with the weather improving perhaps a midweek game at some point?

I'm glad someone started this thread because it may come as quite a shock to some but not only do I enjoy golf but I'm actually quite good at it. I used to caddie for my dad when I was in school and took a likeing to the sport. I usually play about twice a month at the Beckenham golf course.

Red Devil. "Is it possible to play without being a member". DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT. I and a friend entered the course without paying and I nearly lost my thumb to their Pitbull and the course isn't very good either.

There's a couple of good holes, but I was really dissapointed with this course. Only lived in the area for a couple of years and not really had a chance to explore other local courses yet. Is there any within say 5 miles which are good? Don;t really mind paying dollar as long as the course is interesting and reasonably challenging.

Beckenham is quiet close and relatively well looked after for a council course. I play there in the summer sometimes. I quite enjoy it as Iím crap at golf* and it is quite forgiving.

*Which is a shite game anyway.

Dulwich Golf Course Prices...



I've played Coulsden near Croyden a number of times. Elevated course with a fantastic view of Ldn from one of the holes...

Coulsdon Golf Course...

Ratty walk down through Sydenham Woods from the Woodhouse, branch right and it's there near the allotments - it's really rather splendid with views etc. I played there once but am a bit like Brendan in terrms of ability.

There's always the Aquarius course, plus you get to take practice shots at Marmora Mans' greenhouse...

Yes Sean - I'd be up for a game at some stage - but I have yet to meet anyone on this fourm so maybe I should make it along to the forum drinks first to get acquainted. But if you manage to arrange something in the meantime let me know.

Masters tees off tomorrow, any thoughts on who might win or a good EW bet?
It's fairly open this year, Tiger's back and already in the winning groove, how will Boy Wonder Rory cope with the pressure?, Harrington's going for the the Paddy Slam...I reckon a non-US player will win it and will have an EW punt on Rose (he tees off with Stenson tomorrow, so that should be good for his game), and Goosen who's hit a bit of form and knows how to win a Major...

messageRe: Golf Locker Room
Posted by Mick Mac 08 April, 2009 10:24

I might back Rory for a bit of fun but of course it would be a stretch to see him winning. Rose and Goosen are good calls too. I'm not sure if Harrington has a good Masters record but he must be in the running.

I played golf at Westport at the weekend and there was a picture of McIlroy picking up the Irish Amateur championship there in 2005 aged 15 years old - the best amateur in Ireland at age 15 is amazing - he looked like a child in the picture. Amazing progression. Really would like to see him make the cut and be there for the weekend - after that who knows.

The Masters 9 hole tournament is on BBC red button. Nicklaus is rolling back the years at -3.

I've had a tenner on Zach Johnson for starters Quids - at 50/1 on betfair - not bad for a former champion. He also did well in a recent USPGA tournament.
Outsiders Calcavecchia and Fred Couples? Harrington worth a bet too perhaps.

Its just betting speak daizie...no need to get excited. Although he is apparently one of the worlds sexiest men or so the ladies say (Tiger Woods that is, not Quids)

no, what was so funny was your reaction to my post, hehehee still laughing,

messageRe: Golf Locker Room

Daizie - That was just a little joke. We are all used to the Jimmy Tarbuck / diamond sweater jokes (I have a few)


Quids - Paul Casey has a good Masters record: has finished 6th 10th and 11th in last four years - and a win last week to boot.
I've placed £50 as follows:
Rory McIlroy @ 36 £10.00 £350.00
Paul Casey @ 30 £10.00 £290.00
Zach Johnson @ 50 £10.00 £490.00
Justin Leonard @ 130 £2.75 £354.75
@ 130 £7.25 £935.25
Padraig Harrington 21 £10.00 £200.00

Good luck..............
