North v South - The Countdown Commences
Five weeks from today, a band of brave boys and girls will be taking part in the most hotly contested golf competition. The Golfshake North v South. So what are your thoughts?
Which side will win?
Who are you hoping to draw/avoid in the match ups?
Who is stopping over?
Who will have the biggest hangover on Monday morning?
Will Dave Ley nobble his opponents again?
Will the pros be called out for a ruling again this year?
Will there be another 'leafgate'?
Let the banter begin!

Really getting close now and I'm sorry that I will miss it!
When I saw the draw for the Jubilee Cup, it said we would be playing Stoke-by-Nayland in an away match. So I went for the team. Managed to get in the team.
The game against Stoke-by-Nayland is on the Sunday of the North v South so it's scuppered my chances of attending. Shame, I really enjoyed the two days last year.
Hope you have a great event and may the North win (again!)

Obviously the south team are going to win easily :D
Have all the details been announced yet like the price if you want to play the sunday and the monday and if so when does it have to be paid by?
Reply : Wed 6th Jun 2012 22:30
It was £35 for play only on Sunday and Monday Adam. I know cos that's what I was doing but I'm now staying over. I believe everyone has to pay up one month before
Reply : Thu 7th Jun 2012 20:59
I didn't know that either, Ive paid my £15 deposit so owe £20 then!
Reply : Thu 7th Jun 2012 21:10
ok thanks chris.thats very good £35 for the 2 days of golf. sosame asdavid only paid my deposit soowe £20
Reply : Mon 11th Jun 2012 15:56
Just for clarity it's £35 for the Monday, Sunday is TBC.
It's a steal at £89 for the 2 days with the 2 rounds of golf, evening meal and overnight accom plus breakfast on the Monday before the main event.
Confirmation for the Sunday golf only will be provided shortly.
Reply : Mon 11th Jun 2012 19:32
Do you want me to pay my remaining £20 now or can i wait until the sunday cost is announced and pay it all at once? and if now please can i have the account info pm'd to me
Reply : Tue 12th Jun 2012 18:49
The side with Jimmy Govere in will definately win !!!!! (he is presently on the waiting list for both sides)
no one that i want to avoid, but plenty that i would like to spend a few hours in the company of from the north side.
i am definately staying over and hoping that singles can be arranged for those that want it on the sunday.
Dave will not nobble anyone, they will nobble themselves trying to keep up with him.
biggest hangover will be the winning captain on tues morning
not sure about leafgate, but pretty sure there will be some kind of trousergate from the miilichips
less than 30 more sleeps till d day !!!!!
Reply : Tue 12th Jun 2012 19:55
Any idea when the cost of Sunday will be confirmed, its not long now!
Reply : Tue 12th Jun 2012 21:57
I might have to try harder to get a pass for the stay over at that price
Reply : Wed 13th Jun 2012 00:14

Reply : Wed 13th Jun 2012 13:30
South looking strong. Currently have more players and a full team confirmed.
Reply : Wed 13th Jun 2012 17:49
South looking strong !!!! HOW DOES THAT SOUND TO YOU BOYS UP NORTH ? (please keep it civilised)
Reply : Wed 13th Jun 2012 20:12
Flamin eck £35 for one day, if its £70 for 2 im stopping over for the extra, any spaces at the hotel!!
Reply : Wed 13th Jun 2012 23:27
South looking strong? Pffft.
Who are the captains this year? Are they confirmed?
Reply : Thu 14th Jun 2012 10:02
I believe, unless anyone else comes forward, that Tim Greaves and Darren Millichip have put themselves forward to represent the South and North respectively.
Reply : Wed 20th Jun 2012 11:36
North to win - as usual!!!! The South are only LOOKING strong - the North ARE strong!!!! lol Staying over - and staying sat night too.
haha :-D x
Reply : Thu 21st Jun 2012 14:40
South looking strong?? Have they put some Viagra in their eyes!
The North have won before a ball is hit as the South will be quivering in their plus fours, mind you a few shandies should give them enough Dutch courage to hit their opening tee shots!

not sure if you could get more old hat stereotypes into 1 post John ! How are your whippets and your job down pit anyway !!!!
Reply : Thu 21st Jun 2012 22:09
We're only playing at the Abbey bacause there are kennels for our whippets, a loft for our pigeons, have a flat cap cleaning service and sell a decent pint of bitter. And it's cheap
Reply : Fri 22nd Jun 2012 20:19
Has anyone else fully paid yet? I've paid my deposit but heard nothing else about paying the rest. As its only a couple of weeks away now
Reply : Fri 22nd Jun 2012 20:25
I'm all paid up. I'm a good lad I am
Reply : Fri 22nd Jun 2012 23:42
Darren is not forth coming with prices for the Sunday. If he's too late it could see a surge of drop outs?
Reply : Sat 23rd Jun 2012 10:36
i hope not John, i am still hopeful that we can arrange as many singles matchplay games as possible for the sunday.
Reply : Sat 23rd Jun 2012 19:49
Is this the comp at Moor Allerton? If so I would check in with them. They got hit badly by lightening yesterday (clubhouse) and arein a bit of a bad way.
Reply : Sat 23rd Jun 2012 20:51
No, it's at The Abbey in Redditch Judy. Bad news about Moor Allerton though, hope everything is OK
Reply : Sun 24th Jun 2012 18:31
Definately upfor singles matchplay on the sunday. As soon as we know the cost will pay up both amounts all in one go. Anyone know when the cost for the sunday will be announced?
Reply : Tue 26th Jun 2012 08:03
Private members golf clubs seem remarkable efficient and well run organisations so I am sure they will be back to normal soon. I did hear that all their electrics were fried and melted so my main thought was to check your booking as they could have lost them all if their backups died too. But no worries as I was mistaken with the location.
Reply : Wed 27th Jun 2012 20:05
Well I can't wait for this event...missed last year and looking to avenge my loss for the first time I played.
As to who I hope I play....someone who can't hit it straight off the tee and who has the yips of course!
Reply : Wed 27th Jun 2012 20:38
That sounds like me! thankfully I'm not playing unless I don't fill those last 2 Northern spots
Reply : Fri 29th Jun 2012 10:16
Really looking forward to it now ! Spent last night sorting out pairs, so it is at the front of my mind. Weather looks ok aswell ( it could all change i know ) Lets hope everyone plays well and enjoys the event. And of course that the South win !
Reply : Mon 2nd Jul 2012 21:45
I vaguely remember the tee times for Sunday being from 12.00. Can anyone confirm this? Reason I'm asking is because my lift down there on Sunday has let me down so will have to get the train. Earliest train will get me to Redditch train station for 11:53!!!! and then a taxi. Could sure use a late tee time on Sunday Darren.
Reply : Mon 2nd Jul 2012 22:06
First tee time is 12:30 on Sunday. Last time will be around 13:45 on the Sunday, we have 11/12 groups.
Reply : Mon 2nd Jul 2012 22:14
Thanks Darren, If possible could I have a tee time after 1:00 Darren? (North team captain)
Reply : Wed 4th Jul 2012 00:08
Getting excited now, love playing in the rain You are not responsible for it this time Darren,blame the jetstream |
Reply : Wed 4th Jul 2012 07:00
Don't worry Dave the rain will cover up the South's tears when they lose.........AGAIN
Reply : Wed 4th Jul 2012 14:29

Reply : Wed 4th Jul 2012 16:10

Reply : Wed 4th Jul 2012 18:43
I hope it's who I wished for
Reply : Wed 4th Jul 2012 18:55
Hmmm apparently wishes do come true.
Reply : Wed 4th Jul 2012 22:01
Not all of them Dave. You're in the group behind me. Bar will be closed by the time you get in
Reply : Wed 4th Jul 2012 22:03
Dave, I'll have to kick your arse another time Chris, hold him up & stall his game plan.
Reply : Wed 4th Jul 2012 22:12
I'm planning to treat him to his first ever 7 hour round John
Reply : Wed 4th Jul 2012 22:19
Your against me Chris and I hate slow play I'll count your practice swings for you
Reply : Wed 4th Jul 2012 22:32

Reply : Wed 4th Jul 2012 22:46

Reply : Thu 5th Jul 2012 05:38
JF you been sniffing petrol again! We might struggle to keep up with Perry ,I have the other Slug in my group! I'll be bringing the salt don't worry.
Reply : Thu 5th Jul 2012 05:45
Darren, how would Perry know what time the bar closes ?? ...1) he doesn't now what a bar looks like or where it is (tite arse,I heard he drilled a hole in his fridge door to see if the light was off). 2) He's in bed by 10:30!!
Reply : Thu 5th Jul 2012 07:53
It is a misconception that I am slow. I am not. However, that being said you cannot rush perfection
Reply : Thu 5th Jul 2012 18:24
Looks like the countdown clock has been reset
