Playing the Royal St. George?

3 posts in this topic

For our UK based folks or those that have played the Royal St. George.
I'm going on a business trip to UK next month and want to try and play the course but looking at the website visitors aren't allowed to make tee times in the weekend?  I only have a Saturday, is it possible to even play on a Saturday?

Give the club a call and check so they don't have a competition on that day.

Ask if it's possible to play on that day. They might turn you down but if that happens

I would go there on the day and ask in person.

If that still doesn't work just drive to Prince's GC 1 mile away and play there instead.

It's almost as good!

Good luck!

Royal St George's is one of the remaining clubs on the Open rota that don't allow Lady members. I would imagine it takes its visitor restrictions pretty seriously, so unless you can find a member to play with you maybe out of luck.

However, you can but try and as Beach said Princes is supposed to be fantastic. Royal Cinque Ports is nearby too and like Princes is an ex-Open venue, it looks like it takes Saturday visitors but you will need to play in 2-balls.

    • foot-note. The assembled shaft is 43 1/2 inches. This is a little short for a driver which adds to my conclusion that a previous owner had tipped the shaft and the piece was somehow left inside and held there by friction until I tapped it loose during my re-shaft. Also, the fact that it was on an adjustable driver, they probably had to cut it short to accommodate the hosel adapter.   Sorry, if I tend to answer my own questions, but it does not hurt to seek out confirmations.     "golf club forensics". 
    • The new shaft was from an adjustable Tour Edge XCG-7 (Matrix White Tie-Stiff). I did a little research and I am fairly certain it was somehow left in the shaft (maybe on purpose just to piss somebody off -it was not new) when they originally tipped it. There is normally quite a bit of the parallel tip to cut from and the fact that it was exactly 1.75 inches long, leads me to believe that it is the piece cut off. I am surprized it didn't come loose before I switched shafts. I am not positive mind you, but after looking at photos of tip trimming, that's exactly what it looks.  Heck, for all I know, it may even have been trapped inside the shaft  and only came loose after numerous changes in the (so-called) loft adjustment.   Anyway, no biggie, I am just a curious sort and obsessive tinkerer.    Thanks, Shorty.

    • 5/26:  Finally made it out to the club today.  Take that, life. 25 mins. range session, working middle irons; focus on not rushing/flipping, and thumping into the ball.  Got a compliment on my swing/flight from an older guy.  Not sure if he was serious, or making fun. 10 mins. putting session; worked 5 footers for most of it, focusing on stroke, and working to get rid of the little push that's cropped up; then worked lags...good session. Walked 18 holes.  Just tried to incorporate focus from recent sessions into everything without overthinking it.  No birdies, unfortunately.  Had a chip-in that somehow hit the pin - not moving quickly at all - and still bounced out.  Baffled me.  Had a ~30 footer on 18 for birdie that I was just trying to lag over a ridge for an easy par.  Kept trickling right at it, then slid right and curled around the edge to 2" behind the cup.  Cruel.  Still - great to get back out there.
    • Post a photo when your battery is charged. My guess is that it is epoxy that was in the end of a bore through shaft.
