Captain's Newsletter - 12 December 2021

Tuesday saw a bitter wind howling with the threat of rain at any minute. But out went the Chesfield ladies battling all the elements, however we did change to a 9 hole competition and thankfully most of us got in before the rain! Many thanks to Helen who kindly donated the prizes for the day. Congratulations go to our winning team:

  • Rosie W, Margaret F, and Sangeeta - Well done ladies!

General Score Competition

Hope you found this competition helpful for when you submit a general score card in the future. Congratulations go to:
  • Kathy D - Division one Winner 31 points
  • Julie R - Division Two Winner 37 points

Well done ladies!

Squad Thanks

Thursday 9th December following the General Score Competition our squad members enjoyed tea and Scones. It was a lovely gathering! I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our team Captains for all the time and effort they have put into making these matches available for our section over the season:
  • Scratch Team Captains: Sarah and Jackie R
  • Pearson Team Captains; Linda B and Rogie
  • Friendly Captain; Hazel

Christmas Jumper Greensomes - 9 Hole Competition: Thursday 16th December

Hope you have all got your Christmas shopping under control and are looking forward to 'Christmas Jumper Greensomes' as much as I am.

  • Both players tee off, the best tee shot is selected (not necessarily the longest drive)
  • Alternative shots are taken to the conclusion of the hole
  • Handicap allowance: 60% of lowest course handicap and 40% of highest course handicap added together
  • Cards will be filled in and available for the off (in the bar area) - Thanks Hazel!

Following your round come and enjoy some fun! A mince pie and mulled wine in the conservatory (approximately 1.30pm). We will also be presenting:
  • Winners of the day!!!
  • Birdie badges won over the season
  • Representatives from our charity at the Lister hospital will be there to say a few words and accept our 'big cheque' from the years' fundraising events

If you are unable to play but would like to join us in the conservatory for mince pies/mulled wine, please sign-up on sheet on the notice board in the ladies changing room, (to help us with catering arrangements). Many thanks.

General Information

We have been made aware of an email from England Golf sent recently regarding general play score; pre-registering a score and penalties for non-completion of rounds.

The contents of the email do not alter how general play scores are managed at present, the message remains the same; but it addresses the problem of how to manage golfers who are starting but not completing their rounds.

The IG app will release a new update version (2.3.7) which will include a forced time delay from starting to finalising a general play score. This will be one hour for 9 holes and two hours for 18 holes. ​It will also check that a pre registered round is entered. This release is planned for next week; however, we are awaiting a news article to let us know when the new version is available.

Due to internet connections at the club not always allowing us to register our general play scored prior to the round I would like to recommend before you play you inform either:

  • Karen M - Handicap Secretary
  • Lin G - Competitions Secretary

If you are genuinely unable to complete your pre-registered round due to e.g. weather, injury can you also inform the above.

By letting Karen or Lin know, they can make sure your pre registered score has been accepted/deleted and therefore you will avoid the penalty set by England Golf. (A WhatsApp or text is sufficient).

You must always register your intent to enter a general score card before play. Registering after a round has been completed is not permitted and will incur the same penalty as a non completed round.

Christmas Party Evening 16th December 2021

This year the Christmas party will not be as we would have liked due to Covid 19. Unfortunately some ladies will not be attending and I fully understand their reasoning. For those of you who still wish to come I just wanted to reassure you that I have requested the tables at far end of the conservatory where we can have the windows open for ventilation (make sure you have a warm top). Maybe even start a new trend of dancing at your table, although I have seen some ladies on the table!!! Should be a good night!

Have a good week ladies!
