Boot size

Hi All, Thinking of getting a small car with some character. And which does better than the 22mpg I get out of my Jeep! The '1.2 Active' or '1.2 my life' special edition looks like they might take my fancy as a new car rather than the 2nd hand option I was going to go for. Trouble is the offers seem to expire at the end of this month and I'm not in a position to buy until April.

Anyway, to the question (or maybe the first question...) Is it possible to fit a set of golf clubs in the back of a Panda with the rear seat down?

Re: Boot size

Might even be possible with the seat up - gave up golf about 40 years ago and can't remember how long a driver is - also note that today's golfers seem to carry a huge amount of equipment. When the Old Course at St Andrews was about half a crown a round, open to the public, we used to have six or seven clubs in a bag that you could easily carry without dislocating your shoulder.

Panda owners don't play golf.
Waste of a good walk in the countryside if you ask me!

Agree - and golf courses are often a waste of good countryside.

No problem with the seats down.

Actually, I don't think I play golf either. I play hit the ball, find the ball, miss the ball, hit the ball, lose the ball, get another ball.

On the positive side, some people only get to hit their ball 72 times. Or even less. I get to hit mine at least a hundred. Much better value for money.

This sport needs a new name. Maybe un-golf.

Re: Boot size

I call it flog, because my equipment gets so much abuse in the rough

Actually, it does. You just have to rest the club heads on the wheel arch, then it fits.
