Did you know

This motion was passed at the Convention :
2    Rule 10:18 has been replaced with 
If a ball be in the opinion of its owner, unplayable, the player may drop a ball to the nearest point of relief, not nearer the hole and add one penalty stroke or play a ball from the place at which he made his last stroke and add one penalty stroke.
For an unplayable lie in a hazard place (within its confines) and add one penalty stroke.

Due to the bad weather we have had our course has been closed, and will be closed until further notice.

We hope this will be sooner rather than later so fingers crossed for better weather coming our way.

The inexperienced player on each team will now mark the card (this is to get used to marking cards) 

Bonus Number

The winner of the bonus number 47 was Mary Hackett.

Pitch Marks
Leaving Pitch Marks when playing destroys the greens, it takes a lot of care and attention to keep them in pristine condition, so all members and green fees are asked to repair them and use the correct repairer when doing so.
Do not use club heads to repair a pitch mark as this damages the green. Always use a pitch repairer

Also do not use the club head to take balls out of holes on greens as this damages the hole. 

If anyone has an hour or two Mondays to Fridays to spare to give a hand helping on the course you would be very welcome.
