We ask that members assist us and co-operate with the bar staff on duty.

BRIDPORT BOWL COMPETITION
A call to arms - players are required for the two club teams participating in the Bridport Bowl Competition.
This competition replaces that formerly known as the Carpet Barn which ceased last year. It is essentially the same format, being for teams of ten playing five better ball match play matches against an opposing club to win through to the next round. All players should be 50 or older by 1st April 2017.
If you are interested in playing please add you name to the list on the Competitions notice board.
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.
