Does anyone here play?

Post your handicap or talk about anything golf in here  :)

I play off 18, B Grade and played at my old man's club Tea Tree Gully this morning for a slightly disappointing 32 points stableford.
Smashed the ball off the tee but 3 putted on too many of the recently cored greens  >:(
I really need to practice more  ::)

I literally live in between two golf courses, though my skills are atrocious and have not had my handicap measures but it would be HIGH. I'm better at sports where the ball is moving towards me - instincts kick in :)

Awesome course. played there once but it like my 2nd or 3rd round of golf ever, so it was pretty bad. Want to visit it again soon! it's $50 a round now isn't it? Normanville have the best bakeries as well...  ;)

Another nice course down that way but a lot cheaper is Wirrina Cove, need a golf cart though if it's a hot day!

I play every now and then with my mates, but not enough to have ever bothered working out my handicap.
I am great with my drives and chips, but rubbish with the irons and putting haha. Always enjoy having a game though.
Recently played in Fiji when I went there on holiday and did pretty well, only played the front 9 and scored 46, which was pretty good for a course I had never played on before and with different clubs to my own

Attamurra is a lovely course, right up in the top 2 or 3 I've played, only played once, would love to play it again. Same with Murray Bridge only played that once, but a very nice course.
