MATCH RESULTS

In the County Scratch Foursomes Rich Grieve and Dave Taylor lost to a 1 handicap and a 5 handicap player from Cotswold Edge at home at the sixteenth.

In the Daily Mail Foursomes Phil Gardner and Dave Brown defeated Forest Hills at home, but lost away at Cotswold Hills to a 1 handicap and 3 handicap player.

G4L league matches: we defeated Naunton Downs away by 2 points which briefly sent Rodway Hill to the top of the league until the following week when we lost at Sherdons by 20 points, where all our players struggled against their higher handicappers. The home match against Tewkesbury Park was also lost, by 12 points – a disappointing result that has sent us from one end of the table to the other. 

Seniors’ match results are as follows, v Ravenmeadow 4.5 – 1.5, v Sherdons  4.5 – 1.5, v Lydney 0 -6, v South Cerney  3 – 3.  To date we have W2 D1 L5

TEMPORARY LOCAL RULE

This has been introduced to take account of the treatment of the daisies on the fairway: re-seeding cannot take place until the autumn.

Preferred Lies 7thFairway

When a players ball lies on the 7thfairway in the area between the 150 yard markers and the front of the green (between the bunkers), the player may take free relief once by placing the original ball or another ball in and playing it from this relief area.

  • Reference Point: Spot of the original ball.
  • Size of Relief Area measured from Reference Point: One club length from the Reference Point, but with these limits.
  • Limits on Location of Relief Area:

Must not be nearer the hole than the reference point,and

Must be in the general area.

In proceeding under this Local Rule, the player must choose a spot to place the ball and use the procedures for replacing a ball under Rules 14.2b(2) and 14.2e. Penalty for Playing Ball from a Wrong Place in Breach of Local Rule: General Penalty Under Rule 14.7a.This Local Rule is effective immediately and shall remain in force until further notice.

IMPROVEMENTS TO THE COURSE FACILITIES

We are close to providing two improvements. Hamish McLean has used his Seniors’ Captain’s gift to purchase a bench for the 16th tee which should arrive soon, and we are investigating investing in a starter’s hut for the first tee, so that the starters can stay warm and dry during club competitions. Again, it should be in place before too long.

WE STILL NEED A CLUB SECRETARY

Unfortunately, pressures of work mean that Hanif Bhula has had to relinquish his role as Treasurer.  So Bob Wolfson has taken on that role, meaning that we need to replace him as secretary.  If you would be interested in joining the Committee and taking on this role, it would be great if you could contact Captain Paul Stevens or Bob Wolfson, who will be able to give you more details of what it involves.
