A small competition entry fee is levied whenever you take part in a Club competition, along with an optional ball sweep. This usually amounts to a total of £3.
There are certain things you must do when playing in a club competition.
Sign the Competition Sheet in the Competition book in the locker room
You must sign this in order to be in the competition.
You must also pay the nominal entry fee, usually £3. Place the £3 in the envelope provided, sign your name on the envelope and place the envelope in the competition box.
The Competition book will give the relevant details of the days competition.
It is the responsibility of the Competition secretary only to maintain the Competition book
Green fees must be paid to the Professional, who will then issue you with a stamped scorecard.
At the end of your round you must check that your marker has recorded your score and that you agree with his figures. Any query should be sorted out and then make sure that both yourself and your marker sign the card.
The Club now uses new technology to record the player’s scores. In the clubroom a computer has been installed for the members to record their scores. At the end of the day the computer calculates the changes to your handicap, and it also keeps details like eclectic scores. Once you have entered your score into the computer you must place your completed and signed card in the competition box.
Remember it is your responsibility to check your scores are correct, and that your card is placed in the box. It is a rule of golf that any card taken out in competition MUST be returned for handicapping purposes.
In addition ...
It is always a good idea to check the notice boards before going out to play as there maybe one relevant to the days competition. The notice board is also the means by which Club members are kept up to date with the every day business and announcements of events. It is strongly recommended that you look at the board at least once a week. Many things will not change but there may be a new notice that needs attention.
It is the possession of a handicap that is recognized by the Cheshire Union and the CONGU that enables you to play in many open competitions that are held all over the UK and the world.
If you are joining from another club and that club is GONGU recognized then it is simply a matter of transferring your handicap via the 2 Handicap Secretaries. If you are joining us as a second club and wish for your handicap to remain at the other (home) club then it is your responsibility to report any scores to your home club and to notify the second club of any change of handicap (this need only be done when your handicap changes by one or more full shots).
