    Golf

    I have often wondered if I would manage to make it through life without ever playing golf but I'm being sent on a coaching course on Thursday and I can't wriggle out of it because the school gets a load of free gear if I go. So what's the deal on golf? Hit a little ball around some hills? Is that it? I'm tempted to take my walshes and get a few circuits of the course in .
    I'm gonna get that cwazy gwouse...

    Great spirit Marg! take yer Walshes and do it! One of my best days out was when I was a conference at Gleneagles, getting up nice and early for a run around the championship course. Lovely country only spoilt by some blokes wearing funny sweaters yelling sumfink in Gaelic (I think thats what it was) at me!

    Ditto - firm's annual conference at the Belfry October 2001 - Ryder Cup just cancelled as yanks weren't coming over here post 9/11 - huge amounts of infrastructure being disassembled around us - morning run was around the championship course at 7am - how many people can casually drop "Well, when I was on the 18th green of the Ryder Cup course..." into the conversation!

    Other than that - haven't used a golf club since I last took my son to the pitch and putt many years ago - and certainly no interest in starting now!
