COMPETITIONS UPDATE

Dear All,

Now that we are back on the course and getting back into the swing of things, literally.  I'm sure that you are all wondering when the competitions will be starting?

As of yet, a decision on when the Gents Club Competitions will re-start has not been decided by myself, The Chairman and The Manager.

There are still several restrictions in place that will have a direct impact on the running of competitions.  Myself and Graham are in close liaison with other golf clubs and the EGU on trying to work out how competitions can commence in line with the current government guidelines on COVID-19.

Realistically, I cannot envisage any competitions being held in June with the middle of July being a more probable scenario.  It may be the case of holding some Roll-Up Stableford comps to start off with before the Major Board Comps start.

The R&A have stated that qualifying competitions can take place with certain rule changes; one being preferred lies in bunkers within 6".  A work around concerning the pins and the positioning of the cups is being discussed.  

As you are all aware, the situation on golf and other sports is changing weekly if not daily in some cases.  As soon as I get more information I will let you know.  

Please just remember that safety is paramount whilst we are in this pandemic.  Just enjoy being on the fairways, soaking up the sun and hitting a few good shots.

GENTS COMPETITIONS UPDATE

Dear All,

I hope that you are all enjoying being back on the course and burning it up as if you had never been away.

This is just a general update on what is happening with the competitions in the current climate of COVID-19.

All Club Open Competitions have been cancelled this year apart from The Over 55's Mixed Open on the 14th Aug which is pending.  This is a Seniors lead competition.

I cannot tell you when, if any this year, the Gents Competitions will start.  As previous emails have stated, I am, on a weekly basis trying to adjust the Gents Comps diary to facilitate the comps if we get the go-ahead to start.  If I do get the green light from the EGU, it won't take long to get the competitions onto the club diary and for the registration sheets to be published. 

Any date for the resumption of club competitions will have an impact on how many can be completed this year.   The most prestigious ones being added first then if I can, and there is enough time permitting this year, get as many in as possible.

Please just enjoy your golf at the moment and as soon as I have any update I'll let you know. 

Aye

GENTS COMPETITIONS UPDATE

Dear Gents,

I hope that you are all keeping well and safe.  This is just a quick notice to let you know that there is stuff going on behind the scenes in preparation for the re-start to the 2020 competitions diary.

At the moment I am working on a 3 step competitions restructuring; short, medium and long term plan and it is my intention to try and get all Major Board Competitions completed in what time we may have left this season.

Please keep an eye on the club website for any updates and as soon as the changes to the fixtures have been finalised by myself and the committee, these will be published accordingly.
