    I've played golf for many many years and been fortunate enough to play all the Open Championship Courses in the UK with the exception of the Old Course and the very recently added Royal Portrush.

    I hear a lot of negative reports about St Andrews as a golf course but I suppose I really should make an effort to play it sometime soon - if only to sample the traditions and unique atmosphere of the home of Golf.
    I've played it 4 times, though not since 1989. I've a cine film of my first ever tee shot - it went a long way straight, but about 5 foot off the deck.

    When I viewed the film I realised I was so petrified of hacking up the tee I went up on my toes and hit the ball half way up. And yes, I dumped my second in the burn!

    Covered a few holes at Rutherglen Top Golf last weekend. Great fun but it reminded me why I love fishing and hate golf.

    Absolutely tremendous. Fairways a bit soft in places but greens were really good. Fabulous course and experience. Thatís my 6th time I think and it has never failed to deliver. 36 Stableford points with a couple of doubles on the front nine and 3 jiggles on 15,17 & 18 took a bit of the shine off but it was a difficult day.

    The carrick really is a very good track. Some terrific holes and some real nice scenery. The condition is its downfall. Really struggling in the wet conditions. It really could do with a good few Bob spent on drainage and conditioning. Real shame.

    Carrick is a great layout but their drainage issues are never ending.
    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!"

    I had booked it through GIS for October but had to cancel as it clashed with a family holiday. Booked Cruden Bay instead. I'll get to KB one day....

    I lost two balls that were striped right down the middle of the fairway. Absolute swamp.
