1st game I played in with a couple of mates I ended up winning and that got me hooked, mate was well hacked off as he'd been playing for about 4 years anyway :D

Yep that's a governing factor, I really REALLY hate playing in the rain, have had two bad experiences of this, one in Devon with torrential rain and thunder and the other at a nearby course again with torrential rain, plus it was so cold I could hardly hit the ball.
I'm a fair weather golfer (when I play) mostly.
Really do notice that if you don't play for a while you completely lose touch/feel with short play and putting so I really do need to get out and start practising :)

I need a golf club set...
