    I thoroughly enjoyed Archerfield yesterday although I shudder to think what I actually scored. I seem to spend half the round splashing out from bunkers and the other half looking for lost balls in the tiger rough.

    Its a fantastic place to play golf and you feel totally divorced from the outside world for a few hours at least. If ever I have a spare few million quid to play with then I may contemplate membership.

    Got to play it earlier this year. Good course, very serene and peaceful which is ideal.

    I love the vibe there too. Basically all the way from Longniddry to North Berwick

    It is but I'm sure they ran a debenture scheme which was an eye watering sum when it opened
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    Archefield x 2
    Gullane 2/3
    Monktonhall
    Leven Links
    Monifeith
    Blairgowrie x 2
    Moray x 2
    Fraserburgh
    Goswick

    Kingsbarns, Gullane 1, Nairn and Brora all booked in for October (expensive month )

    I've heard good things about Castle Stuart, and was tempted to book for this weekend but I'm not sure my bank account will allow it.

    How do people get on Renaissance? I know they do the SG thing in winter but I've not seen anything about that this year?

    Castle Stuart is a nice piece of golfing territory. I got it on the perfect day. Have to say its greens are its protection. Some lovely holes. They’re building a new course round the other side of the bay that you can see from the 4th. Looks like it’ll be a favourite weekend resort for the rich folks.

    Played The Machrie on Islay today. Weather good but very strong wind, and it was apparently blowing in an unusual direction, meant that it was a cross wind on a lot of the holes.

    A superb course, well worthy of the acclaim it gets.

    Yesterday was a bad day.

    My faithful Ping G400 driver which I've had for 6 years literally came apart at the seams when the head came away from the shaft , thankfully nobody in the vicinity was injured. And before anyone asks - a temper tantrum was not involved!

    I've been told that it can be glued back together again but somehow or other I have doubts if it will perform as well as it has for me over the last six years.
