Likes...=  The fact that I am still physically capable of playing the game and in the majority, the great people you have the opportunity to meet whilst doing so. 

 

Dislikes = The inconsistency of my game and really slow play that is avoidable with a tad of common sense.

Weeti said he liked the exercise from walking, you never walk 

 

I still get to walk a fair bit, just not as much as if I was a 'walker'.

But you clearly don't enjoy the walking or else you would be a walker.

Plantar fasciitis and crook knees.

So walking hurts and is therefore not enjoyable? 

Or do you find enjoyment in pain?

Like - The occasional drink on course, sinking long putts, drives hitting the fairway, being amongst decent company, competitive golfers regardless of handicap, greens at Eastern GC.

 

Dislike - Slow play, fog delays, missing short putts, rude/entitled/arrogant playing partners, young female golfers that show no interest in me (prick teases), people that bulk order coffees in pro shop at half way when only one staff member there, greenside bunkers at Eastern GC.

Ah these newbies, just haven't a grasp on the culture here. ;)

That would be a thread of the year contender.

"How would you describe the culture on here ?"

Generally sexist
Occasionally racist (mainly the poms)
Parochial
A battle between the funny and unfunny
Sometimes golf related
