Other competition news
The Competitions and Handicaps Committee met last week for the Annual Handicap Review and if you were affected then you would have been contacted with you handicap reduction or increase. However, please double check your handicap before you next play either through ‘HowDidIDo’ or the latest handicap list in the Men’s and Ladies Locker Rooms.
There were also a couple of Committee decisions that I need to make you aware of;
1. Men’s Weekend Monthly Medals/Stableford
We trialled the idea last year of allowing the Men’s Monthly Medals/Stableford to be played over the entire weekend rather than just Sunday mornings as we wanted to make the competitions more accessible to more of the membership. The results were positive as the two months we trialled the idea had the largest participation levels for the entire year. Therefore, the Committee has now decided to make the weekend Medal/Stableford permanent going forwards starting from this weekend in the February Stableford. If you are playing on the Saturday, please sign in to the Pro Shop as you would do a Midweek or Fri/Sat Qualifier. The presentation on Sunday afternoon will still mark the closure of the event so Sunday afternoon rounds will not be eligible. Saturday winners will be informed asap. £5 entry.
2. Midweek and Fri/Sat qualifiers
These events have been traditionally men’s events but The Committee have decided that these competitions are now to be inclusive as possible and ladies are now able to play to compete and help maintain their handicap. We hope this is beneficial to you and helps you both maintain and improve your handicap through competitive play.
If you would like to discuss this or have any other queries or suggestions with regard to competitions and handicaps, please email me and I will pass on to the Committee.
