Hole in One
Congratulations go to Vicki T who gained an amazing 'Hole in One' on the 9th last week! Fantastic Vicki. Many thanks for your very kind donation to the Lady Captains Charity.

R&A Finals
Friday saw Amanda M and Ann K compete in the R&A regional final, where 35 clubs were represented. A great day and fantastic experience, both ladies played well, but were unable to match the 38 points from the winners. Nevertheless, a big well done.

General Scores
The England Golf rules for putting in a General Score card are:

You must:
  • Pre-register the round before you play. This can be done on the IG App
  • Play and enjoy the round in accordance with the Rules of Golf
  • Enter your score using the IG App following your round
  • Ensure your final score is verified by a playing partner who has witnessed the round and who holds a World Handicap System handicap index

In order to protect the integrity of the handicap system a time lag is in operation from the point where intent to play a round is registered to the stage when a score can be accepted.

Birdie Badges
It was agreed at the committee meeting on 15th July that the allocation of Birdie Badges would change. With effect from 2021 birdie badges will be presented to individuals when they achieve their:
  • 1st Birdie
  • 10th Birdie
  • 20th Birdie

Touchscreen Score Entry Terminal
The touchscreen is back in place, located in the reception area for those of you who may just prefer to use it instead of your mobile phone to register your score. Please note - this may be relocated to the bar if it doesn’t workout in its current location.

Annual Course Maintenance Week
Will be commencing week beginning Monday 9th August, therefore members will only be able to play 9 holes on Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th August. The Summer Eclectic round 2 will be moved forward a week. Monday 30th August is a bank holiday so round 4 of the Eclectic will take place on Tuesday 7th September 2021.

Enjoy your week!

Kind regards
Pauline Humphrey
Lady Captain 2021
