Welcome medinah2012, good to have you on board.

We're quite a friendly bunch but watch out for that BlueCoverman fella, he can be a bit strange at times Innocent

If you fancy some Fantasy League golf we have a weekly comp running from now until the end of November.

Looks a nice place from the website - welcome Med.

BCM is ok as long as you take him as he comes - I normally find firmly by the throat until he turns purple works quite well as you can see from his avatar! confused

But that 1GG - well he is just the proverbial Englishman in New York...........and long may he stay so

Welcome aboard Med2012 - your home course looks very nice.

Luckily the reprobates on here have myself and LadyPutt to keep them in order, so it's usually quite civilised. Innocent

LP.

Medinah is a member of the club that banned women from the patio after one of them complained about a bloke swearing on the 18th green when they were having a drink.

Who bar women from the main bar (and I also believe the main restaurant) for most of the year.

And various other things which are incompatible with my own views on things.

Yes it's their club and let them do what they want. Doesn't mean I have to agree with or welcome someone like that though.

As far as I am concerned... Sod off Medinah.

That was all ages ago LJ...I think that even Thorndon Park has emerged from the dark ages as far as ladies are concerned. Perhaps Medinah would care to confirm?

Incidentally my wife, with her long blonde hair, short skirt and high heels was made to feel very welcome there on a visit recently!

I can see the headline in the Essex Golfer magazine now:

"Campaigner for women's equal rights at Thorndon Park in living room lapdance shocker"

i dont agree with them banning females i think its awful that happened, and to be honest i think the club was much better off when females were around there, it was a much better atmoshpere there..

(and no i wont sod off!)

Obviously females are not banned at Thorndon Park (just checked...yes we are in fact in 2012)

I think somebody might be on a wind-up Wink

I never said they weren't welcome... just that they are treated as second class members.

And medinah do what you please. But if it really bothered you then you would have found somewhere else to become a member.

I think you've been welcomed by everyone else Med

Curious to know if you had another username on the dark side though - as I guess that's where you came from - but if you wish to remain anonymous then I guess that's OK also

i did have another name on v2, but i stayed away from the golf section due to a lot of problems on there

i have made a post on the golf part of the board to do with when i played in portugal Smile

For the record i personally feel that golf courses are much better with females there as well so everyone mixes, im not sexist and Thorndon Park do allow females

Ignore LJ - most of the time I think he's on a wind-up but unfrotunately it doesn't always come across like that. He's the same on Facebook - some of his postings are downright weird!!

You are very welcome here, as just about everyone else says. I'm not in favour of sexist golf clubs but it's not your fault personally so I won't hold it against you.

Welcome Med. I don't post that often because I am usually reading on the phone and it is a pain in the @rse to type anything on there.

As we all seem to be establishing our non-sexist credentials I will just add that not only does my wife play but also my 15 year old daughter (and 13 year old son). Added to which my wife's handicap is now 4 shots lower than mine - ouch!
