CLUB NEWS NOVEMBER 2023
The Committee has recently revised its Disciplinary Procedure and its Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy. These, together with the Club’s other key policies, can be found on the Club tab of the website, and members are urged to update themselves on these matters.
There will be six new winter mats in place before or shortly after we start playing from winter tees. Groundstaff are also continuing to re-cover bridges and steps to improve their safety.
We will be reverting shortly to having a ‘Marker’s score’ column on the scorecards.

The November medal, which will be a non-qualifier, will be played in aid of the British Legion Poppy Appeal, with entry fees going to the charity and prizes from the British Legion.
In early November, all members who have won winners’ or runners-up prizes in the form of credit in the Club shop will receive an e-mail advising them of this, and of the value of their credit. You should have this in time for any Black Friday or November sale arrangements that the course makes, thereby enhancing their value. Watch out in your inbox!
In the light of the rising costs of engraving, sign-writing and trophies, the entry fee for mens and seniors competitions will rise to £4 for single round competitions and £8 for multi-round competitions from 1 April 2024. This will enable us to continue to provide worthwhile credit prizes in the shop, which otherwise will be shrinking away.
