A Charity Golf Day will be run at our club on 19 May in aid of Parkinson's UK. Anyone is welcome to enter.
Beginning with coffee and a bacon roll at 9am, the first tee-off time will be 10.30am and teams will play a fourball betterball stableford format.
A buffet dinner follows, with prize presentations and entertainment provided by a band. The day is expected to finish around 8pm.
Cost is £60 per player - please email Roy Lewis at email@example.com to reserve your spot or enter a team.
If you don't have a team, don't worry, you can enter on your own and you will be placed with other players.
Our enduringly popular Pro-Am is on Tuesday 18 July 2017, with the usual format of three amateurs and a pro in each team.
Entry fees will be around £65 per person, which is around half the price of most Pro-Ams on the circuit.
Either put together your own team (a pro will be assigned to you) or just put your individual name into the ring and we will find a group for you to play in.
Members, guests and visitors have responsibility as golfers, caddies or spectators on the course to ensure that they adhere strictly to the following:
• Practicing is strictly limited to the designated practice areas of the club, which are: (a) the practice areas on the 18th and 13th holes and (b) the practice greens near to the 1st and 13th tees.
• In wet or inclement weather, you should exercise extra care. Steps, mats, paths and slopes may be slippery, particularly in wet or frosty conditions.
• You are advised to approach all trees and spinneys on the course with caution, particularly during windy or other adverse weather conditions.
• You are advised to use caution when going down or up any steep incline on the course, particularly when using trolleys. It is not advisable to play a shot if any doubt exists as to your wellbeing as a result of playing that shot.
• You are advised to avoid oral contact with anything that comes into contact with the golf course (including trees, sand, soil and grass).
• In the event that you come across any dead wildlife on the course, you should avoid coming into contact with it.
• You are advised to exercise caution at all times on the course in respect of identifying areas where you may be at potential risk of being hit by another golfer’s ball.
• You are advised to exercise caution when playing to avoid hitting anybody with your golf ball.
• If you see a shot is heading in the direction of other golfers or members of the public, shout “FORE!” in a loud voice to alert them of possible danger. If “FORE!” is heard when playing, please take evasive action immediately.
• Golfers must always stand well back behind the player who is playing his shot, both on the tee and on all other areas of the course. A swinging golf club can be dangerous and can cause serious injury.
• You are advised to exercise caution when crossing the small road from the 12th green towards the 13th tee, and from the 14th green to the 15th tee.
• It is recommended that golfers are insured against the unlikely event of them being injured or causing injury as a result of an errant shot.
• The green staff are regularly working on the course when play is in progress. Please be careful and courteous to them. In the interests of their health, safety and well-being, please ensure they are aware of and have acknowledged your presence prior to playing in their proximity.
All Members, Guests and Visitors are invited to bring to the attention of the secretary, Steve Barr, any hazards they feel have not been addressed.
