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.

*****IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ALL GOLFERS*****
A notice was recently placed in the clubhouse advising those using the course that anyone who hits or suspects they may have hit a ball into the dog compound MUST ring and advice the guardroom as soon as possible to ensure the the ball can be removed. This is to ensure the safety of the dogs within the compound.
PLEASE ENSURE YOU ALWAYS ENSURE THAT THE GUARDROOM IS NOTIFIED IMMEDIATELY WHEN THIS HAS HAPPENED TO AVOID INJURY TO THE DOGS
