Competition Changes 2019

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 60 years or older at the date of the competition) will be instituted. 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.

IGC Cup - the competition will be run as an individual competition. Each week Texas Scramble teams will be drawn in handicap categories with prizes for the top teams as usual.

The score achieved by the team each week will be given to each team member and aggregated over the course of the competition - with the worst score dropped (this may change if weeks are lost to weather).

The winner will be the person with the highest aggregate score with countback over the last 18 holes to determine any ties.

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.

It is with great sadness to have to inform members of the passing of our great friend & Seniors Captain in the early hours of Tuesday 27th November.

Our thoughts are with his wife, Jean, and his sons Matthew, Daniel & Chris.

Peter’s funeral will be held at 1pm on Wednesday 12th December at Holwell Cemetery and collections in Peter’s memory are being taken at present.

He will be greatly missed by everyone at the club - a true gentleman. Rest In Peace Peter.

This coming Sunday is the annual Turkey Trot - Breakfast Rolls will be available from 9am with a start time of 9.30am with 3 clubs and a putter the chosen format this year.

The competition will be followed by prize giving and cheese and biscuits with mince pies.

Here is the final update of the Order Of Merit for 2018
