Golf resumed again nationally this week after a 6-week hiatus. Unfortunately, conditions for the first post-lockdown men’s competition on Sunday the 6th were less than ideal, so the decision was made to change from an 18 hole Stableford to a 9 hole version instead. This was the first competition played under the new World Handicapping System, the results will be delayed for a day or 2.
Next Sunday’s competition is the annual Christmas Bonanza, which is always a popular competition and has traditionally had a very social component to it. Given the current constraints, the prizegiving will have to change from its usual format of one prize for every participant. This has not been finalised yet, but ideas under consideration include having a reduced number of prizes and making a donation to a local cause in lieu of the others. It would be a real positive for the club to see a strong turnout of members for this competition, so please support if you can.
