It appears that the members section link is now activated. As this is a link to a third party, How did I do, it was out of our hands.
Please bare in mind that it must be the email that is registered to the club that you use.
It will then take you through some verification details.
I've just done mine, eventually, and all is in order it seems.
It takes you to the How did I do site that can also be accessed via the app and their website. This was the last line of communication I intended to use, so hopefully from now, everyone should have some platform to receive our updates.
Please find below the fixtures for the forthcoming 2017 season.
These will also be displayed from the start of the summer season on all section noticeboards, as well as, handy pocket size cards to pop in your golf bag.
As you will see, it includes all sections.
At the start of each month I will send out an overview reminder of all the following months competitions, then each week, another to explain the formats etc of that weeks events.
Tee times are to be booked as normal, with competition entry fees payable at point of checking in with the shop. Cards will be entered as normal, or put in the box for processing. Any change to this format will be explained in the weekly update, for example special events such as captains day.
Any competition changes will be sent out as and when, along with any fixture updates.
For any players who want to play in the competitions that don't have a playing partner, there will be a notice on the board to put names on so we can get those paired up and playing in the competitions together.

D = Dawson course

Following the past few competition committee meetings, we have been deliberating over the best way in taking forward the competition program, and utilising other media in which to promote them. By using the website, the app and "how did I do", it will enable us to increase participation and get results and handicaps finalised almost immediately. From these discussions, it has been mutually decided to dissolve the current committee operation, and replace it with a club management led working group. I thought it best, for the ease of transition, to ask the existing committee members if they'd like to take part, along with representation from the shop. Should a position become available thereafter, then I will promote it to all members. The existing funds built up will be transferred and used in exactly the same way as in the past, for competition pay out, donations to sections, trophies etc, and will be itemised monthly along with competition income reports. The working group will also look after handicap affairs. More detail will follow in due course, but you can be rest assured that any changes are for the betterment of, and playablity of the competition program, making them ultimately much more streamlined for everyone.
We are also looking at renewing our trophy stock. If you currently have possession of a trophy would you please drop into the club so we can see if it needs replacing.
