Dear Roger
The decision to "Postpone" the Charity Auction was taken at around 5.00pm ON THE DAY due to the very small numbers of people present.
The items were all on display.
I announced (AFTER getting approval to postpone from those present) that we would run the auction on Saturday 15th December after the shotgun start competition ends.

After all of the effort in collecting the auction items (numbers of which were much reduced from last year), we were not prepared to see items auctioned off at silly prices due to the poor attendance.
If you were not in the room when the decision was announced I apologise for any inconvenience caused.

One of our commitments as committee members is to maximise the amount of money we collect for the nominated charity....the decision to postpone, in my opinion, was the correct one and would be repeated in the same circumstances.

Came back on Saturday tea time to attend the charity presentation and auction. Found out on arrival that the auction had been cancelled. Why was this not communicated during the day as myself and a fellow member travelled a considerable distance. Needless to say we wont be attending again.

Totally agree with Grahams comment. Surely it would have made sense just to put a couple more drop zones down the left.

Thanks for the explanation Terry. I don't agree but - hey- that's life!

The reason that the drop zones have been removed is that many players...and visitors...have expressed their concerns that they are being penalised if their ball has not quite made a drop zone, they then have to go back several yards to the previous dz.
The big hitters are heavily penalised as their ball could enter the gur many yards further than the last dz. This cannot be correct.
Now, most balls can be found, and if not, it is up to the player and their playing partners to agree where the ball entered, the ball should (as at other clubs with gur) be dropped at the point of entry no nearer the hole.
The same issue applies on the 16th hole where a bad tee shot results in your ball entering the gur near to the path up to the 17th, you can then pick up your ball and walk 30 yards nearer the hole to drop in the dz with no bunker in front of your next shot.
Surely it is not fair to have a local rule which penalises many players, because we may have a few players who abuse the rules.

I have to say I was very disappointed today to play in the Thursday comp and find that the drop zones had been removed from the 17th. We are now back to where we were at the beginning of the season with people guessing where their ball crosses into the GUR and then taking a drop from there. It is clearly open to abuse!
My own view is that it should be OB but was happy to accept the drop zones as a compromise and felt that that was working reasonably. I am therefore confused as to why we have gone back to the original unsatisfactory solution.

Richard Godfrey , the comment was not aimed at your comment but aimed in general. No offence was intended.

Negativity only when there is just cause
The hole had been re-sunk just in time for this mornings competition
The green staff have done some really good work this year
I merely was pointing out something that was below standard and needed attention. This is a comments page and constructive criticism
Is never a bad thing
Applause for fixing the issue so promptly
Regards
Dickie boy

There always appears to be negative comments on our comments page , so for a change , here’s a few positives . I’d like to say well done to the greenkeeping staff for giving us , in my opinion, the best greens in the county . I certainly haven’t played on any better.also , during the current dry spell , the course has been in great condition. I’d also like to say it’s a great pleasure in having Mr Paul Fletcher working in the clubhouse , aiding Sue and the team . He has given our clubhouse a certain “Stewardship” feel .
Rant over 🤓

Who is responsible for the dreadful attempt at hole cutting on the 9th green 17/8/18
Was it Mr Magoo? Seriously though take a look during tomorrow’s competition.Surely We cannot think something like that is acceptable
