Annual Fees: Invoices & Standing Order Mandates
The invoices for the annual fees have been sent out. Prompt payment will be very much appreciated.
For those wishing to pay by Standing Order, the Standing Order Mandate forms for the most common membership categories are available at the bar.
The final payments from the 2019 Standing Order Mandates have been, or shortly will be, made.
New Standing Order Mandate forms are therefore required for 2020.
For those needing bespoke Standing Order forms – e.g. to include buggy storage – please contact Barry Firth on 834072 or email him at email@example.com; or contact Fred Gray on 408115, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prompt submission of the forms – due by January – will be very much appreciated.
Please hand in completed forms to Barry Firth for processing. Please do not take the form to your bank.
Bag Tag Stickers
For those members who have paid, or have made arrangements to pay, their 2020 fees, the 2020 bag-tag stickers are now available from the bar or the office.
The Men’s Senior Section meets every Tuesday throughout the year. We draw for partners and play a mixture of team games and individual competitions. Life Membership is a one off £5 and the weekly competition entry fee is £2. Any club member over 50 is most welcome to join us. We meet at 8.30 in the winter for an 8.45 start, and 8.15 for an 8.30 start during the summer months. There are also friendly (!) matches against some of the other Island clubs during the summer months. If you are free on a Tuesday morning do come and join us – you would be made most welcome!
The Board has decided not to print vouchers for all eligible members. Eligible members who wish to have their quota of Guest Vouchers, please contact our GM Barry Firth.

Care of the Course
Players will have noticed that divots are being removed by birds, to the detriment of the course. It would be very much appreciated, and of great assistance to the greenkeeping staff, if players could repair such divots by using divot anchors which can be found in a bucket at the start sheet station.

John Tinsley will be coaching a select group of juniors each Sunday at around 11.45, for an hour or two.
He will use the Practice Area and will also take the group on to the course at times. It would be appreciated if members refrained from using the Practice Area during these periods and accommodate the juniors when on the Course. Your cooperation will be very much appreciated.
LADIES GET INTO GOLF SESSIONS
The Sunday morning sessions continue, with John Tinsley offering coaching. All are very welcome to come and join in the fun. We meet at 10.30.
Coaching at the club has been very well received and there have been some incredible achievements made by clients. Handicap reductions of 8 shots in 4 months, from beginner to competition winners in 3 months etc. Really amazing improvement.
Details of how the coaching is delivered, why improvement can be so rapid, are on teeitup.im where you can book lessons online. There are lots of videos, blogs and information available to you. The club has also been able to benefit financially from the coaching programme, so everyone is winning.
