RECORDING OF NON-QUALIFYING SCORES
From 1st January 2017 England Golf require all players to return all scores in Non Qualifying Competitions,....... to read more click HERE.
You will not be surprised to hear the issue has caused consternation across the country with divided opinion. Some issued cries of despair at the prospect of the additional administrative burden whilst others applauded the efforts to protect the integrity of the handicapping system.
In response to the questions they have received following the introduction of the requirement to return all non-qualifying scores, have now put together a Question and Answer document which will hopefully clarify any points that may have been misunderstood.
CLOTHING RECYCLING BINS
Two bins have been acquired from the Salvation Army for the recycling of old clothing. The bins have been placed in front of the trolley store.
All proceeds derived from this project will accrue to the golf club.
“READY GOLF” is a commonly used term which indicates that players should play when they are ready to do so, rather than adhering strictly to the “farthest from the hole plays first” stipulation in the Rules of Golf.
“Ready golf” is not appropriate in match play due to the strategy involved between opponents and the need to have a set method for determining which player plays first. However, in stroke play formats it is only the act of agreeing to play out of turn to give one of the players an advantage that is prohibited. On this basis, it is permissible for administrators to encourage “ready golf” in stroke play, and there is strong evidence to suggest that playing “ready golf” does improve the pace of play. For example, in a survey of Australian golf clubs conducted by Golf Australia, 94% of clubs that had promoted “ready golf” to their members enjoyed some degree of success in improving pace of play, with 25% stating that they had achieved 'satisfying success'. (R&A pace of play manual).
Ready Golf means BEING READY to play…. not playing when you're ready. Here are some simple reminders.
Ready Golf DOES NOT mean RUSHING. If you prepare in advance, you can take your time AND play Ready Golf.
If every person in a four ball could play each hole just 25 seconds quicker, then we will make up half an hour for each round.
