    Default Hello from Adelaide

    Greetings all, new member from Adelaide here.

    I'm just getting back into golf after a fairly long break (~10 years), although I only ever played sporadically, cricket was my main game.

    I don't have a handicap anymore. First aim is to get one again, then hopefully get into a position where I can break 80 more regularly than I do now.

    My 15 year old Maxfli clubs are probably also due an upgrade, I imagine technology has come a long way since I bought them.

    Welcome, BYU. I'm in your city at the moment, but I'm not a resident.

    The SA guys regularly play rounds together, including this Sunday. You should jump in.

    Nice name, but you left out the apostrophe and the word 'creepy'.

    p.s. Welcome aboard.
    You don't get me. I'm part of the Union.

    And more importantly, how often can BYU be a Kitchener Mule to western Sydney?

    Welcome Bob.
    Fighting the good fight!


    Golf is, in part, a game; but only in part. It is also in part a religion, a fever, a vice, a mirage, a frenzy, a fear, an abscess, a joy, a thrill, a pest, a disease, an uplift, a brooding, a melancholy, a dream of yesterday and a hope for tomorrow. - New York Tribune, 1916.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone. What's the deal with kitchener buns? Are they really that unique to SA? (I've only been here ~5 years)

    Also, how long does it usually take for your forum account to get "approved" so you can post immediately without mod review?

    Welcome to the group BYU, as mentioned the SA group do try and have a hit somewhere on a monthly basis, and yes it is Highercombe tomorrow.

    As for the Kitchener Buns thing, apparently they are only available here and Peppas is hooked on them; tries to get through as many as he can when he's in town.

    "Here ~5 years" as in here in SA or here in Aus!?

    Welcome BYU - oh yes technology has come a long way - there's probably a discussion thread all about it if you have a few days to catch up

    To be fair to Queensland, daylight savings doesn't make any sense for the northern half of Queensland.

    I moved for work, although I do miss the winter weather.
