If you wish to pay by Standing Order but have not yet arranged to do so, please contact Barry.

9-hole Mixed Open Stableford Competitions
On 9-hole competitions, with the high numbers entering, the Competition & Handicap Committee (C&HC) has decided to award prizes for Handicap Indexes up to 20, and from 21 to 54.
Submitting Social, Casual, Recreational or General Play Scores
Formerly called Supplementary Scores, such scores may be submitted at any time for both the 9- and 18-hole courses. Players must pre-register their intent to play such a round by putting their names in the Social Scores book. The cards must be deposited in the box to the right of the Touch Screen – marked cards for computer entry. Members of the C&HC will enter the scores into the system.
Casual Tee Bookings
While it is not mandatory, it is highly recommended, that members continue to book casual golf tee times online. This to ensure that members can play on the day and time they wish to. It also helps with the booking of visitors and societies.
Social, Casual, Recreational or General Play Scores
EnglandGolf has asked clubs to advise members that such rounds can not only be pre-registered at a player’s home club, but also from an away venue. To post a general play score from any venue a player must:
- Pre-register the round with the host club;
- Play the round;
- Ask the host club to enter the round on the player’s behalf either through the WHS Platform or the club’s own software.
If an away club cannot enter the score, then the player should return their card to their home club and request that it be entered into the WHS Platform.
It is recommended that, over the winter months, in order to protect the fairways, players use fairway mats when playing casual rounds of golf. If you don’t have a mat, please tee-up on the fairways. Mats are obtainable online. They may not be used in competitions but may be used in the Winter Eclectic.
