Remember not getting on Kilspindie because i was wearing shorts on a hot summers day in July.

Just went round the corner and played Gullane 2

 

If you had read Kilspindies dress code prior to pitching up (pardon the pun), then you're shorts would've been tailored, yours obviously were not. Well done to the administration for upholding their values and moving you on due to your ignorance.

Obviously did not miss my money, and as for reading their dress code, is it on a sign outside., lovely course i had returned 

after a game a few months previously, never been back.

You'll find Kilspindies dress code on their website.

 

If playing unfamiliar courses in the future, I would recommend a quick glance through their websites, this will guarantee you wearing the proper attire for both on and of the golf course. 

 

Happy golfing!

My annoyance of Kilspindie, is that to play in their open, you must have membership of an East Lothian course.

Strange one IMO

Who was it at Kilspindie that knocked you back, an official, manager, or the pro?

Kilspindie is a nice course. It's too short for me though.. last time I played there I shot a 63 scratch. Drove 6 of the par 4s. 

 

No reason for this post other than to say.. I shot a 63 scratch...

Luffness had that reputation a few years back. The East Lothian guys will know if things have changed or if that's still the case.

Holes, 5,6,11,12,17 &18 I assume?

 

Another assumption would be little or no wind, early in the season with benign rough and you can't count.

 

63 you say, 3 times. Of your low handicap, your fantastic score would win you nothing.

A team game, scratch 63, some putts were given and very unlikely you played of the medal tee's?

 

A tarnished 63!

A 63 is a 63.

 

It may have been off forward tees. It may have been benign conditions. It may have been in a team event. .... but it still adds up to a 63 scratch.

 

Probably a good 10 shots better than you have ever managed round there I would wager. Just by the way you post, easy to tell you are no golfer!!

You'd lose the wager. OK Sherlock fill me in why I'm no golfer due to my posting style?

FFS guys, can we lighten up a bit.

 

There has been a bit tongue and cheek from OBE.

mainly he has backed up etiquette,, I see no wrong in that.

 

:wink: anyway I'm hoping for an invite.

Wait for the better weather Tommy. I'm busy up until late spring, maybe you and couple of your friends, won't cost you anymore than £40 for the 3 of you. 43 years playing golf and never played Kilspindie...atrocious behaviour.

Fairmont. Wanted to play Craigielaw but no times available until the afternoon. No good when travelling from Fife.

 

2 over handicap with an 8 at the 6th. Took 4 to get out that greenside bunker :lol:

I think following the chat the last few days, Kilspindie should host the Kickback outing, it appears a very welcoming place and not too long a walk.

Aye but not in the winter as they use mats.

 

And I'd be wary of the summer as the shorts police would be on patrol.

 

Then there's the chance of bumping into OBE.

 

Nah, it's not gonna work.

I was going to suggest OBE ran it, there’d definitely be no cheating under his stewardship.
