Following feedback from members a number of changes have been made to some competitions in 2019.
Seniors Club Championships - a new category for super seniors (those members aged 65 years or older at the date of the competition) will be instituted in memory of Peter Turner. This competition will be run as part of the usual Seniors Championships and prizes will be awarded to the winners of the Seniors and Super Seniors winners.
John Fosters Masters - to reflect the lower volume of members attending competitions the number of qualifiers will be reduced to 15. The qualification is determined from results in Monthly Stableford & Medals from March to September during the year.
There are a number of changes to the rules of golf for 2019 - these changes are designed to speed up the pace of play. Please read the crib sheet which is on the noticeboard to familiarise yourself with these changes or read them here
Finally - in order to minimise wastage and costs - completion of the cards each week will remain the responsibility of the players themselves rather than them being pre-completed by the competition secretary.
