April Medal on March 30th. That makes sense.

Admin reply: Hi Roger, Sorry that the 1st Medal was held on the weekend of 30th March,two days before the 1st of April. This was because there were a lot of important events at the begining of April. This would have meant having the first medal of the year towards the back end of April. It was thought that just for the sake of two days it would be on the last weekend in March. Hope this helps.

I notice on the fixtures list for the 25th June there is a 9 hole stableford comp. The seniors open is that day , though it does state the 24th June on our fixtures list , it is however, when applying to enlist , on the 25th . Could someone please clarify .
Brian

Admin reply: Hi Brian, Most of the 9 hole stable fords are on a Tuesday and it is rare if we get a couple of players and they are mainly later in the day. If you need it to be changed I will remove it from the fixtures list.

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.
