The new handicap system now in place with a maximum of 54. which is 3 extra shots per hole. I have been given 36 which I feel is right for me at the moment, although I would like to get lower, but due to my age and starting so late in life 28 should be a realistic target. At least I know if i play to my handicap I have a chance of winning and not be wasting a competition entrance fee. Most good players can hit the ball over 200 yards and pro's over 300 yards. My body not so supple send the ball 150 yards on a good drive.
What I really enjoy about the sport I get out and about enjoying the company of other like minded people in the quiet country side, which doubles up as nature reserve.
