Where did January go?
Is it me or does everything seem to be going faster?? The days are drawing out faster than I remember from last year, technology is moving so fast that if we sleep we have missed a million apps, tweets, status updates. I cant keep up with the twitter conversations, it's like arriving at a party when everyone is leaving!! On the subject of technology, on 2 occasions this week end, I asked customers if they needed a score card for their round of golf. "No Thanks" was the reply, "we've got the app for our iphone" How amazing is that??. You can record all your scores and those of your playing partners at hundreds of golf courses across the world, Ashton included!! I saw it in action and ...A-mazing. I think the app costs about £24, so much cheaper than a sky caddy. We wont need to have paper score cards soon!! Is this the changing face of golf. Our lives are fastest, therefore everything we do must be faster...or not. In my opinion, golf is still a sport where you can relax and enjoy your surroundings. Enjoy the wildlife and take some well earned R&R from the daily rush. It's easy nowadays to fit in a quick 9 holes and not be away all day. AND..we allow mobiles on the course, you can tweet to your hearts content!!! LOL
