Are you aware that our Ladies Section has its very own website? Thanks to Virginia for keeping it updated. A very important section on this website is the Privacy Policy. Whether you are a long standing member or quite new please log on to the website

and click on the Privacy Policy. This is a very quick and simple questionnaire which asks you to opt in or opt out of various communications and also photo permission. If you don't want photos of yourself in the newsletter please could you let me know as I don't have access to the Privacy Policy.

While you are on the website - take a look at the Golf Etiquette Power Point Presentation so skilfully produced by Hazel. You can find this under Library, along with lots of other interesting things.

I think you will agree that the bar staff at Chesfield are always cheery and obliging. If you would like to make a comment please ask them for a card which you can then keep and use the QR code to make a comment. 

From Handicap Secretary's Report

General Play cards are to be encouraged for ALL appropriate individual rounds on Tuesdays Thursdays and weekends.This will provide a more accurate handicap for each player and qualifiers won't seem so daunting. Players should message Karen M to advise they intend to play a General Card BEFORE starting their round.
