Please invest in a dictionary!

If you have been removed from a golf club it is because they have decided that they are better off without you.

You have made it abundantly clear that the directors of this club have a little more respect for their place than you have for them.

Aren't they "rubbish"? Aren't they "hiding behind etiquette?"

You are a vile and despicable blight on the game of golf and a disgarce to your generation.

The fact that you cannot write beyond the level that would be expected of a ten year old should be the issue you are focusing on.

Go and bankrupt your parents in court if that's what it would take for you to learn a lesson you clearly don't like.

Do you seriously want to continue playing at a place where you aren't wanted?

Go and exhibit your majestic game of golf elsewhere.

And it won't be the last until you take your whingeing elsewhere. Don't come on her acting all hurt when you've shown yourself to be an arrogant and rude pratt. As I wrote previously, you were warned every time someone looked in your direction after you disgraced yourself on the golf course.

Why is it OK for you to insult the members of your club?

Why is it OK for you to then enquire about how best to take legal action against them?

Get used to this kind of treatment. You'll have a lifetime of it if you don't like it, and not just from anonymous people across the seas behind computer monitors.

I'd love to see a transcript of your attacks on the membership dragged out in court to support your case.

I suppose the judge would be "rubbish" if he mentioned your (frankly) shocking lack of manners and arrogance.

I had to look it up, but "whinge" is apparently a British form of the word "whine".  Don't know why they made it different.  In the good old USA it's "whine".  I like "whine" better.  The word itself sounds "whiny".

Every private club has their own rules and contracts.  Your club has likely consulted their legal counsel and feels confident they are within their legal right to terminate your membership based on your actions at the club.  Most clubs have contracts which include clauses that give them the right to terminate your membership for numerous causes.  Your only likely recourse would be to request a pro-rated refund of any pre-paid membership fees.

A+ thread, would read again!

Laws? You violated your membership by acting like four year old, so they cancelled it. I believe it's Karmic law.

Learn a lesson from this. You're entitled to nothing, you have to earn everything.

Captain Keith of the Wizard used that line this week on Deadliest Catch when his greenhorn attacked Freddie. The kid was lucky Freddie didn't snap him in half..

I answered your question already. You have no moral or legal standing. They kicked you out, you deserved it.

Sure you can take legal action, but what do you gain by doing so? Even if you were to obtain a court order that you were to remain a member (99.9% sure that wouldn't happen), what kind of experience do you think you would have at the club? You would always be "that kid that sued the club because he got kicked out". I suggest that you 1) grow up and make a change to your behavior and 2) find a new club.

So presumably the committee didn't accept your letter of apology and you've now been officially kicked?

This raises an interesting question about the fine line between encouraging younger members and enforcing standards. Most clubs are bending over backwards to bring in juniors and I know that mine would require some heavy provocation to actually remove a 12 year old entirely. I can only imagine that you must have been acting in a very petulant manner for things to have gone this far.

I'm sorry for you kid, but it sounds like you're not ready for membership yet. If you're already as good a player as you say you are then start working on your attitude and maturity and I'm sure they will take you back in a few years. For the love of all that's holy don't attempt legal action because you won't win and the club will blacklist you for the rest of your life.

It's a private club so they have the right, after a vote of the BoD or membership, to kick people out.  In your case, since you're a junior, it might just be a decision by the BoD.  The bylaws of the club would detail the procedure for how a member would be revoked of his/her membership.

    • I too, have difficulty understanding what is being asked.  Down - obviously Towards the ball - obviously A thought I often use is "point your lead shoulder at the ball" on the backswing. The caveat being, don't get overly steep with your shoulder plane.  
    • Just curious.   I've been watching some of the videos by Mark Crossfield and other youtube pro's and there is an argument to how much shaft stiffness truly matters.  Obviously too whippy is gonna lead to inconsistent strikes and dispersion.  I'm a S stiff guy, like I'm sure a lot of us amateurs are, but what makes these pro's need and prefer X?  Is it all the dispersion?  Because it can't be swing speed.  Bernhard Langer, Tom Gillis and all these guys on the champions tours still swing X even with decreasing swing speeds compared to the younger pro's.  So why is it?   And also are there any pro's that choose to swing a S or R flex and why? 
    • I get what you're saying @Vinsk ... but there might be a little more to it that we don't know.  Like @iacas said, Ernie thought he incurred a penalty so he assessed one. If I had to guess, there's probably slightly more to it than "it came out too good" because I agree with you on that one ... lies in the rough frequently come out differently than even the pros expect.  But perhaps he was having extra trouble getting it back where it needed to go, and the good result was just the confirmation.
    • Hey everyone,   So I've been really investing some time into this game the past couple years and think (hope, its golf ) that I'm making a breakthrough.  I started playing in high school with buddies where my main purpose was to hit the ball as hard as I could.  I'm a long lanky guy and was routinely out hitting my buddies even though they had much more experience.  Where they were really envious of me is with my driver where I could pound it 265+ even back then.  My irons were hit or miss, literally, where I would get a high flying 165 yd 8 iron and stick the green or duff one 10 feet.  So I've been working on the control game ever since I started taking this game more seriously to no avail.  I was still duffing and on the course I would find my self trying to crush it instead of just make solid contact.     My long sought effort of developing a controlled swing finally started to click at the range the other day.  One thing I had to continually fight myself on was coming out of my front foot.  I guess to hit it far I would do the jump out of my shoes like Justin Thomas, except without near the control.  I noticed I also tried to help the ball up a lot doing this, so when contact was good I would hit that high flying, but low spinning iron shot.  I was finally able to just roll onto the outside of my left foot without having these anxious spasms right before I hit the ball.  Honestly I think anxiety has a lot to do with golf.  Many of us amateurs don't know how the shot is going to end up.  Hitting a small ball with a big stick leads to a myriad of results and can literally be quite shocking when striking the ball.  I think I'm finally getting over that and losing my little nervous hop right before impact.  I was able to swing and roll through with a solid grip.  That was another thing I would do is release or tense weird areas of my hand when striking.     Its crazy how these little subtleties made such a difference.  While everyone around me was hitting tops and thin shots, I was able to stay cool and composed and struck the ball great!  Decreasing my nervous hop is decreasing my mishits by a large margin.  I'm also way more relaxed in my stance and grip.  I know its golf and this was just a one time thing, but I truly felt it and hoping I can make this change stick.  Hopefully on my way to lower scores 
    • On which tour did you plan on watching him play? I'm pretty sure he's not even a regular player on the Web.com Tour. This is probably a one and done kind of thing. In all honesty he hasn't been that fun to watch. He's not really cranking the drives because he needs to keep them in play and he's clearly not good enough to compete with PGA Tour players. If he wasn't who he was, he wouldn't even be getting air time.
