Captain's Log - 29 Jan 2015

It’s encouraging to see so many Ladies willing to brave the cold, frosty conditions, anything to avoid housework!  The weather does seem to be improving but please ensure that you wrap up warmly, Chesfield is always colder than you think.

On Tuesday, Sally talked to us about the new system of booking online either on the monitor or on How Did I Do?  If you missed this, there are 2 leaflets on the board, which explain the process.  It seems fairly straight forward and several Ladies who have played on a weekend are already familiar with it.  For our first qualifier on Thursday, March 12th you will need to book online. However there will be a trial run on Feb 26th which will be an 18 hole, non- qualifying competition.  You will be able to book 3 weeks ahead as you can now, so the system will be live from Feb 5th.  The Men’s Section already use this so I am sure that we will find it easy!

For the moment Tuesday Club booking will stay as it is i.e. pencil and paper (not forgetting erasers!)

As mentioned previously I have started a Rules Quiz as a way of learning and remembering the most common rules.  Hopefully this will help with navigating a way around the Rules Book which isn’t always easy.  It is entirely voluntary but there is a bribe of a small prize for everyone who completes the quiz.  There will be 18 rules, one for each hole, though of course most rules can apply to any hole.  If you would like to have a go but have missed some of the questions then just ask me.  I will also be putting illustrations on the board of certain Golf Rules.

There are several books on golf, in one of the bookcases in the changing room, which you are welcome to take home and look at if you wish.  The novels in the other bookcase have recently been changed so please also borrow them.  We charge 50p each for these but books on golf are free, so save money and learn at the same time!!
