Some weeks ago, following the ToffeeWeb meeting in the Excelsior pub in Liverpool, there was some interest in a Golf Day Out where other ToffeeWebbers could meet and 'put a face to the name' so to speak, as well as enjoy a game of golf.
After talking with Derek Knox and a couple of other Blues who sit behind me in the Gwladys St and would enjoy a game, it might be an idea to see if there is sufficient interest in such a day out from other Blues.
No date or venue has been chosen yet, this is an attempt to test the water to see if any other Blues would be interested. I live in North Wales and belong to Rhuddlan Golf Club, however, I appreciate that this may be a bit of a journey for some Liverpool based players so any information and recommendations on Liverpool/Wirral courses would be most welcome, especially from club members.
These sort of Society events usually cost in the region of £30 which normally includes a meal as well as the golf although some deals are available at a lower cost. Anyone who is interested can contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Without stealing your thunder mate, any prospective participants should be aware that most of these 'deals' are only available Monday to Friday, as Weekend is not only always at a Premium rate, but most clubs have their competitions then, and Tee Times are limited.
Hopefully we can get a decent number interested, and if successful, like the Get Togethers, we can have another, or perhaps have one every 3 months or so.
I will try to find out more about the U-23's at Rhyl as Tony Abrahams mentioned.

Haven't seen anything about the U-23's playing Golf at Rhyl mate, where did you hear about it, or see it, I have been on the OS and there was nothing there either?

It is hosting the US Open next week, starting on the Thursday 13th, all of the big names will be there, unfortunately neither Ray or myself were invited. (most unsporting of them)
The famous Jack Nicklaus was always quoted as saying if he was told he could only have one last game of Golf before he passed on, or couldn't physically play any longer, it would be Pebble Beach!

I have been at every British Open in the north west since 1976 in which Johnny Miller won. I was lucky to meet Johnny Miller when I was stewarding at the Open at Birkdale where of course he won in 1976. I was telling him about his final round that year. I said you played with an unknown Spaniard called Seve Ballesteros, he said you have a good memory.
British golf has the best most knowledgeable and respected fans anywhere in the world. As Peter Allis said amazing how a piece of string can keep control of 50,000 people, also amazing how quiet they are when players are putting out. I have never seen anyone ever encroach onto the playing area, and unlike some of our American counterparts each player irrispective of where he comes from is treated with the same respect as our home grown players. What other sport has that respect.
I also was a steward at Tommy Fleetwods British Masters at Hillside a few weeks back. The reception that Tommy got on each green was amazing a true blue Tommy was really taken aback by his reception from the fans.

Certainly being at Pebble there are a few with good track records round this course namely Woods and Mickleson and Graeme Mc Dowell won his US Open there. But like with football there are so many scenarios, funny I have never in my life bet on football or Golf mind horses are a different matter.
Well I think Koepka and Johnson will be right up there and if you are looking for a decent outsider I like Xander Shuffle.

It's set around the early days of Golf @ 1910, but very enjoyable to watch too.

The famous story was that during the game, one of Bayerns coaches went up to the Everton bench complaining about the physical nature of Everton, and was told to “Fuck Off” by everyone who was sitting on it.
I heard Peter Reid, did the same to Jamie Carragher, in a roundabout way last week, and Spit was lost for words?

I think most associated with Liverpool, starting with the Manager have had that operation, where their poo tubes are directly connected to their Gobs!
