FEBRUARY 2018 NEWS

LADIES MAKE A STRONG START

The Ladies have started their NAPGC Mary Forster Bowl competitions.  The two teams have so far played one match in each division, with considerable success:

COMPETITION RESULTS

MONTHLY STABLEFORDS:

Congratulations to the winners of the February monthly Stableford, shown below, together with the value of the vouchers they have won (which reflect the number of entries):

Division 1: Dan Hall (£10), Dave Brown (£5)

Division 2: Brian Webb (£15 and overall winners’ medal), Hanif Bhula (£10), Michael Ogden (£5)

There were insufficient entries to constitute a Division 3 competition.

The website section on club competitions has been updated and improved.  It includes details of how to enter and what the format is of all our competitions – please have a read of this as it will save you a lot of questions and uncertainty.

 

A REMINDER ON RULES ABOUT COMPETITIONS

As we start qualifying competitions again soon (March Saturday Stableford on 10 March and midweek on 14 March), the Committee would like to remind you of the following.

In order to ensure that competitions run smoothly, especially Medals and others

taking place on Saturdays, players are expected to observe the following:

  1. Arrive and report to the starter at least ten minutes before your tee time.
  2. If the starter needs to do so to keep the numbers right, s/he will ask you to change your grouping and/or start time.  You are required to follow such instructions.
  3. If you are unable to play in a competition for which you have signed up, please inform either the Handicap Secretary or the Clubhouse as far in advance as possible – if necessary, on the day.

If you do not follow the above, most obviously by simply not showing up, you will receive a letter or e-mail from the Club Secretary asking if there were any extenuating circumstances.  If there are not, you will receive one warning, after which you can expect to be barred from Club competitions for a period of time.

 

TRAINING DVD FOR DEFIBRILLATOR

We have decided not to purchase a specific training session on using the defibrillator, but rather to recommend that you watch the training DVD.  This will be available from the clubhouse shortly, but can also be viewed at this link - www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KIiRBcCTLM

 

SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR 2018

Subscriptions to the Club are now overdue.  Just in case you were wondering, this is what you get for your money:

  1. Affiliation to the English Golf Union, Gloucestershire Golf Union and National Association of Public Golf Courses. Through this, our members’ handicaps are officially recognised and enable you to play with a ‘live’ handicap on any course. Around two-thirds of your membership subscription is paid across in affiliation fees.
  2. Access to County Cards.  As members, we are entitled to  annual County Cards, which enable us to play at other courses, not just in Gloucestershire, for approximately half price green fees.
  3. Official handicaps and entry to club competitions. We organise a range of competitions for men, women and seniors, through which members get their competition handicaps that enable them to play with other golfers across the country.  The Master Scoreboard section of the website records all of our scores, and enables us to track our scores. 
  4. An annual presentation evening and an Annual General Meeting, at which a drink and refreshments are provided to those who attend from the subscription income.
  5. Through a Committee of volunteers, we liaise with the course owners and managers to ensure that the views of the members are taken into account in course improvements and developments.
  6. An annual calendar of events and competitions is provided to each member, so that we know what is happening when. (These will be sent out at the end of January)
  7. Members are entitled to play for Club teams – we run Mens, Ladies and Seniors teams which play a range of matches and in other competitions.
