    Looking forward to the year ahead, all new courses for me pretty much, played Corbalis once in a match play, 8 down after 8 so wasn't a wild fan. 🤣

    Played Mahony's point before too, all the rest are new to me, but looking forward to Kev's online friends stag in Killarney. 😁

    Will be missing one for the sister's wedding unfortunately.

    Firstly Congratulations Roadrunner on your 2023 captaincy,I know you will be a huge success and you have a great list of courses for the year and after a trying couple of years and a recent house move I hope to throw myself back into my golf and take it seriously again and maybe join a new club for a fresh start so looking forward to meeting up again in as many outings as I can and hopefully compete for some prizes..Best of luck

  • Registered Users Posts: 591 ✭✭✭ rickis tache

    Best of luck this year RR as captain. Unfortunately I won't be able to play any outings as Saturdays will be unavailable to me for the foreseeable future (work/kids). Best of luck to all involved.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,079 ✭✭✭ spacecoyote

    You should be having a chat about the Invisible Flying Spaghetti Monster if that's the case then Roadrunner. He's not worshipped by priests, but is worshipped by Pirates instead

    Having not played for about a month, got 13 holes in each of the last 2 weekends.

    a first and second finish, so the year has gotten off to a flyer.

    am really looking forward to getting back out with the society. I’ve been doing a bit of digging and researching, so will be posting some nerdy stats in the next week or 2 so keep your eyes out

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,273 ✭✭✭ blue note

    I hadn't played since the Captains in Mount Juliet, but got out for a round on Saturday (in the European Club, no less). I went to the range before it and hit some decent shots, but played like I hadn't played in 4 months. 6 greens in regulation was decent in that wind. 1 par out of those 6 was not! But I'll get a couple of rounds in before the first outing. It kicking off in February is actually a bit of motivation to get out a couple more times. Not wanting to hit 45 putts again in a round is also motivation. Jesus it was comical. I was so far off line at times you'd swear I was imagining windmills between me and the holes.

  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 22,226 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Kiith

    Here's the real question of the it Cor-ballis or Corb-allis? 🤨

    Have to say, the bad weather these last 2 months or so have really started getting to me, so I'm desperate for things to improve even slightly, and really looking forward to golf not being an absolute mushy wet mess.

    Played on Saturday for the 1st time in 6 weeks, and it was the mixed bag you'd expect, but happy with it overall. Few more lessons to be had before it starts back up big time, so really looking forward to this year.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,659 ✭✭✭ RoadRunner

    Corballis is bliss you wouldn't wanna give it a miss.

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,052 ✭✭✭✭ Seve OB

    6 greens in regulation @ the european in any conditions is great going for a 10 handicapper.

    you are off 18 and think it was only decent because of the wind 🤣

    i guess you are odds on favourite to take the prize on first day out again....

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,052 ✭✭✭✭ Seve OB

    Ladies & Gents, members and potential members.... I will get the couple of people wanting to join set up later on today. if you want to join drop me a pm with your details, name, club, GUI no, mobile & email.

    we will send out subscription invoices this week. you will have to have your sub paid before you can book into outings.

    timesheet for first outing will go live next week

  • Registered Users Posts: 422 ✭✭ bakerbhoy

    Do we still have access to Golfnet this coming year ?

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,079 ✭✭✭ spacecoyote

    Yes, we're continuing with the same model this year

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,273 ✭✭✭ blue note

    13.5 now. Thanks to the two boards rounds I submitted last year more than any other. And had I remembered to declare Tullamore at the start of the round I'd be 12.5. Corballis will sort out any expectations people have of me this year.

    Does the society cut carry forward from year to year? I could end up having my first single digit handicap in February!

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,079 ✭✭✭ spacecoyote

    No, every returns to their base HI at the start of the year

    Please see new thread here for information about the society and how to join, rules & ClubNet setup

    Please do not post in this thread. Mods will sticky and lock it please. I will be adding more information in in next week.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,659 ✭✭✭ RoadRunner

    Just a quick note that the 2023 Boards Golf Society Subscription Invoice emails have been issued. Check your email.

    If you are a new to the society now is a good time to register your interest.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3 oma29

    I've just signed up as new member, superb list of courses for 2023, can't wait for Corballis!

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,052 ✭✭✭✭ Seve OB

    Just to add to that RoadRunner

    Subs have only been issued to those who played last year and a few new members who I just set up (2 already paid 😁)

    In case any of the long timers who weren't able to get out last year (but are set up on ClubNet) are wondering why they haven't received an sub invoice, ClubNet is a super system super system and by default only invoices active members. Drop me a pm and I can change if required

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,510 ✭✭✭ token56
