I played at Theydon Bois GC today (Sunday 12th Aug) and I arrived early so I could hit some practice balls.
When I went into the pro shop I asked the professional if they had a practice ground.
He replied "No, but we've got two nets outside and a putting green".
So imagine my surprise to walk to the first tee and see a sign post saying 'Practice Ground'. Then when we walked up the second fairway I could see to my left a practice ground. Why would they lie to me? After all, you would think a professional would like to see people having a warm-up before playing.
This happened to me once before when I played at Weald Park GC. I phoned up to see if I could get a tee time and asked about a practice ground. The bloke on the phone replied "It's for members only."
Now I always thought that once I'd paid my green fees I was a temporary member of the golf club!

I've never understood why some clubs are so protective of their practice ground. I was a member at The Shropshire in Telford for a year and only members could use the practice ground but they'll let people pay to get balls from the driving range.
I'm sort of torn to be honest.

pathetic, profesional in name only....as for clubs not letting non-members on practice grounds, this is a scandal. you have the same rights as a member when your green fee is paid.
If i turned up for a knock and had paid, and was then told i could not use PG i would demand my money back.....and name and shame on a furum....
