Is that Howlong it is from JB's place then?

So what is wrong with Longyard?
Both courses seem crazy cheap to join

Nothing wrong with The Longyard Rob, I only need to join one club and Tamworth GC play in the Pennant competition and that's the main/only reason I'm leaning toward Tamworh GC. In saying that, I haven't played either course as yet so we will wait and see..... :)

Well our 2 year adventure in the NT has come to an end (after 7 years) and we are relocating to Tamworth. Are there any ISGers on here from Tamworth? If so, drop me a msg so we can line up a hit when I land in Boot Scootersvile after Easter....

Had a litle drive around Tamworth GC yesterday
Looks a lot different to the satellite photos.
Definitely not as many trees in between holes as to what it looks.

Having a look at Longyard around lunchtime on my way out of town

Had a look at Longyard on the way out of town.
Looks like a pretty long walk as it curls between houses and across rounds.

Looks firm under foot

Well I was born and raised in Tamworth, left when I was 27.

Played my first game at TGC when at school. Won a ball...... don't know how....

Only really played there a dozen times. It was fairly wooded back in the late 70's -80's.
Loved that little par 3, the 3rd I think.

The. They built the first nine at the long yard. Two different tracks really. Favourite hole there was the 9th.

Ummmm,, new nine was built after I left in 90. The back nine is the original front nine.

It nearly closed a fair while ago, but managed to survive.

If I had my way I would play LGC any day.

Best of luck with the move Jiminy and all the best with the job interview TammyRob

I wasn't even a greenkeeper at this point in time. Town in my view has gone backwards.
Parents still live there, I don't go back at all tbh...
