    Hello all,,,

    I am currently parked up and enjoying the site of the c&cc club at Canterbury,,,
    I have been here before and I like it,

    My location here is approx 50 yds from the Canterbury golf club, where I visited this morning,, approx 6,000 yds, well kept, a few challenging holes ( all are for me) and with a good pro shop and from who I met, nice and friendly staff, especially Daniel, the pro.....

    Ok I am just putting an idea out there to see if I would get a positive reaction?

    A meeting on this site for a week,or even a long weekend? Playing golf for whoever would like, in a competition format ( but not too serious) with prizes,

    I would like to know
    1. Is it of interest to anyone?
    2 how long for?
    3 time of year that would suit?

    I don't expect to get bogged down with details at the moment, and UNTILL I have had a reaction I can't give any idea of prices etc. At this stage it's just an idea I'm having!

    Ps. Singles and couples all welcome and for those with no interest in golf, the town of Canterbury is fantastic and maybe I could sort out something for you all to be involved with also !!

    So, thanks for reading,, let me know what you think,, area, idea, etc.

    All the best. Ianthebuilder xxxxx

    Used to play on 9 hole course at Southend every Sunday morning with a few lads.
    Unfortunately due to my illness I can no longer walk that far but I really miss it. You are sure to get some golfers on here to give you a game. Good luck.... :)

    A nice idea, would be interested but might have to combine with something else to justify distance to Canterbury. It would have to be a choice between clubs or bikes in van!!
    By the way have you seen my PM?

    Hi Ian, I'd certainly be interested just have to be a wee bit further north for me. It would be good if you could find a site with a course, it might be a wee bit far north for most but we have one at Hoddam castle. Lovely site with 9 hole course.

    once my dodgy tennis elbow is sorted (16 months and counting) I would definitely be up for it - may even get more shots back off my handicap secretary !!!!

    It won't be till next year now anyway people, but it's nice to know a few are interested,,,,,, I will do some homework on tinternet this winter'. Enjoy !!
