Enjoy Perry

from all accounts Capital plays at 6701 m par 73 from Black tees.

bit of a step up for Rossdale members who are used to playing a max of 5936 m. they will all have to buy new drivers which give them extra 90 m off tee,
and wear out 3w and hybrids just getting to green and soon get tired of playing

You play golf? With the extra run from playing on couch , the course will play somewhat shorter than Royal RGC’ s kikuyu tight fairways . No need for hybrids , just need more wedges

Good see our friendly Rossdale member does his research, a modicum of diligence would have revealed to Spade that in fact CB80 does play golf, in fact plays quite a lot of golf.   

 

As to Capital playing shorter than Rossdale, yes I will give Spade the point that there will probably be more run seeing the fairways will not be Kikuyu but 765 more metres of run I do not think so, I would suggest that more wedges would not be the answer.

But i am sure spade hits the ball already the ISG average of 250m with his driver so with the extra run of couch fairways he should be fine and averaging close to 300m.

Not sure how they will afford the ground staff to keep the fairways running at full speed :)

The only thing RGC have shaved to the bone is their current ground staff numbers.

 

Like all failing businesses they've cut from the bottom of the tree first and kept the top end, expensive wages intact !

But if the top end isn't there, who will decide on what further cuts are required?

 

A lose/lose situation.

Why would I waste my time checking another member’s golf record of how often he plays.
You should change your nickname to The Cavalry.. I’m sure he doesn’t need your help.
I will probably get another 2 wedges btw.

I was in fact trying to put some logical view instead of huge generalisation you spout.
Criticising people with out even having basic facts is not very intelligent or playing to this so called friendly and welcoming spirit that you espouse about Rossdale
As to being the cavalry, would that not be supportive which friends do and a friendly club would do
