    Sorry to hear that.:(

    That takes the confirmed numbers down to 3:eek:

    Small chance that I can bring a work colleague. What do we think guys?

    Yeah, that's a shame Martin, the numbers do appear to be thinning, who is now confirmed?

    Those are the only 3 that have posted in the last month or so.

    Got in touch with Signs yesterday and sadly he cannot make it.

    Not really as we were paying a normal rate for the round (£24) anyway unless our numbers were 12+.

    I have the day off as well so other than the couple of hours drive it is no problem for me to play still - only thing not looking too good was the weather the last time I checked, don't know if that has changed?

    Not been around that much lately as I handed my notice in here so trying to get things sorted out to hand over before I leave for a new job

    I'm seeing rain Thursday, cloudy Friday, showers Saturday for derbyshire, so fine if that's accurate, not so much if weather forecast timings are off!

    See you all Friday

    Have trimmed the tee off times down a little since we don't need 3 any more!

    Our official tee off time is now 11am.

    Not hit a ball for a few months so might go early and hit a few on the range.

    I'll PM you guys my mobile should you need it for any reason.

    Just noticed the link in the first post is not for Morley Hayes, to confirm, is DE7 6DG where we're headed?

    :oops:

    Have amended that.:D

    DE7 6DG is correct. Not 100% sure that'll take you to the door but it should get you close enough to the signs for the course.

    Cheers for the game fellas, shame more folk couldn't make it. Maybe next time.

    Well done CSS doctor, superb front nine making it tough to catch back nine. Apologies to Dom for sinking that final putt, second thoughts, scratch that, I needed something from the day ;)

    Good days Golf that somehow managed to dodge the rain :thumbsup:

    Thanks from me too, was a good day and the golf wasn't bad either

    Once again, playing with Toasty and I threw in a couple of birdies and a front 9 of +3...he has threatened not to play in the same group as me again to give himself a chance hehe

    Edit - can't remember what time we left the club but I didn't get home until 8.15!

    Good game guys. Well played Doc. Storming front nine.

    :eek:

    We were gone by 4.30 ish:rotfl:

    Traffic up the M1 was still bad at 8pm so not sure if something had happened earlier in the day.

    First time I've played twice in the space of a week for a number of years.:eek:

    Played up at Shirland Golf Course (Derbyshire). Very nice Parkland course but the most dangerous course I've ever played. Many of the holes run parallel and the amount of times you end up ducking behind your bag when someone shouts Four, is, well, a lot.:D

    Nontheless. Quite happy with a Gross 85 (Par 71) considering i had a 6 (4 putt double bogey at the last:suicide:) a 7 and an 8 (7 shots up the wall there) on the card.

    Was aching for 2 days after Morley Hayes but only a few hours after Saturdays round.

    Anyway.....is it worth setting up a new thread for the next golf day:confused:

    Hiya, AVF Golf has had some great days in the past, but the last few outings has seen a decline in attendees to the point there was only 3 of us on this one. While it was still a good day, it was more a knock between friends than an AVF day.

    If interest arises again, I'd be up for attending, its best to avoid summer, so we used to aim for Spring and October days. The main issue is selecting a club and day the majority can attend easily.

    I went to 2 of the Golf days (the next 2 after Edinburgh I think). Both were great days and nights out. The golf was a bit of an inconvenience though!!!

    I meant the 10th year as in 10 years since the first golf day.
