This seasons fixtures for all sections of the club will be released Friday 3rd March.
Happy new year, and great to see so many out on the course over the holiday period.
As you may be aware, we are integrating the competition management through our booking system and "how did I do" for the coming season. The first part of this process is now live, with the introduction of the How did I do app. This is a free download to your smart phone from your relevant app store. From here you will see the results as they happen, handicap changes and news.
The step over the next couple of weeks is to have this integrated into a new "members" section on our existing website.
If you download the app in readiness, which also includes the winter comp results etc, then I will inform you of the going live date for the website members section.
New rule from the R and A
EFFECTIVE FROM 01 Jan 2017
“Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1 are modified as follows:
When a player’s ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty if the ball or ball-marker is accidentally moved by the player, his partner, his opponent, or any of their caddies or equipment.
The moved ball or ball-marker must be replaced as provided in Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1.
This Local Rule applies only when the player’s ball or ball-marker lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental.
Note: If it is determined that a player’s ball on the putting green was moved as a result of wind, water or some other natural cause such as the effects of gravity, the ball must be played as it lies from its new location. A ball-marker moved in such circumstances is replaced."
