Club competition mindset - the point in them?
I'll say first - I realise clubs can be different - even more so if they are based in different states or countries. I take that onboard too that this might be impossible to answer or might be universal, some will know better than me.
I've never played in a club tournament at my club. I only took up golf again for the first time in years a couple of months back. I don't wish to make friends or acquaintances currently. If this is a problem of course I won't intrude on the social etiquette at play. It's a traditional type club, most the members are 50 - 70 years old. Some in the 40-50 range. From what I gather most club tournaments are played solely by 45-80 range and based on net handicap (something I hate. I'd rather they were based just on score. I'd only enter one that wasn't based on net).
How I'd approach the tournament - enjoying and improving at golf . If anyone could tell me - are club competitions/events about getting better, enjoying golf or are they really about making friends and acquaintances ? If it's just a social thing I will stay a mile away - especially as most of these competitions almost everyone in them will be 15+ years my senior. I wouldn't want to be intruding either being so much younger than all the competition participants. Of course I'd have good etiquette, be civil and polite like I always am. If we aren't sure I suppose I could actually ask the club direct thoughts on the matter when I get around to it - I need to improve a bit first, but was looking for a heads up about it here first.
