While we’re on the subject of etiquette, I’d like to follow on from my fellow columnist Darren Edwards’ comment: “let’s not forget the landowners”.
We are losing a lot of long-standing courses and must make sure we look after the courses we have left.
Without the landowners, we wouldn’t have courses to run on, but we should also spare a thought for the many volunteers who give up their time to help run meetings, too.
If the chance arises, thank the landowner and organisers, because a thank you goes a long way and without them, pointing wouldn’t happen at all.
