Unoriginal title - but Newbie was already taken...

 

I'm based in Sydney and just starting to get back into golf - I played extensively until I was about 20 then haven't played other than about 4 rounds a year socially for the last 20+ years except for a 2 year stint where I got back into it in my late 20s then gave up again when I moved to Sydney. I have oscillated between Soccer and Golf all my life and the body is telling me to move back to Golf :)

 

I'm currently mulling over which club to join, I know no-one who plays competitively here so it will be a straight choice based on location, cost, ability to get a membership and course quality.

 

Anyway - hello everyone, looking forward to some chat and advice..

Welcome to Ward 12.  Whereabouts in Sydney??  A few club members peruse the pages and may be able to assist.  Or you can do what everyone else does to get a handicap while they are deciding and join  Howlong.

Is Barnesy still deciding?

 

As you know, Barnesy is not one to rush into situations without due consideration as to how if may affect him at any given point in time.  Past and future included.  Being very measured in his decision making processes, it could very well be another 3 or 4 years before he makes up his mind.  He went the way of Riverside Oaks and then The Springs, both times to have situations arise that made his decisions "Desperately Unlucky" ones.  I'm sure he just wants to get it right.

 

Either that or he is waiting for Elanora or Magenta Shores to offer him free membership.   Don't forget, "If It's Free, It's For Me" and for that he will wait as long as is required.
