|UPDATE FROM THE MANAGEMENT TEAM |
Fellow golfers, as promised last week we are sending this newsletter to update you on the reopening procedures, the course will open to members and their guests from Monday March 29th, the booking system will be open to members from Monday 15th March, there will be a limited number of four ball slots available on the system as was the case before we closed.
Members will be aware renewal date is 1st April; we aim to distribute membership packs next week to all existing members.
If you are not a Member and would like to join this season, please contact us via email@example.com and we can provide further details in time for our opening.
We expect to be busy so please book early, green fees will be allowed from Wednesday the 7th April, so bookings will open from Thursday 1st April. Members get priority on the booking system being able to book 14 days in advance as opposed to green fees who can only book 6 days in advance.
Please remember Covid restrictions are still in place on the course, no rakes in bunkers, do not touch the flag stick etc, etc. Full details are on the web site, these restrictions are important we ask that you pay attention to them.
Like all golf clubs we are now operating under the new World handicap system, if you have a registered handicap held at PGC and haven’t yet got a new WHS handicap you need to send your date of birth and a unique email address to Tony Osborne via firstname.lastname@example.org Tony will submit this information to England golf who will then issue a WHS handicap, I would remind members without a WHS handicap they will not be able to partake in competitions either at PGC or at any other course, so please get this done now, rather than try to sort it out the day before a competition.
Would all members who took part in last year’s competitions please check the web site and settle any outstanding balances, under normal circumstances we would give out prizes at a presentation night, as that will obviously not be possible under current restrictions we will be distributing prizes directly to winners and runners up in due course.
We will this year be running the Scratch Cup, the Pastures Cup and the Foursomes. All entries should be made via our website. To do this, please log into your account where you will see a new ‘Tournaments’ link under competitions, here you will be able to see all the details relating to these. Stuart Wilkins will be organising these competitions and note that the closing date for entries will be MONDAY the 19th APRIL 2021.
The price will be £3 per player per competition i.e. £9 per player if you enter all three, Stuart will make arrangements to collect the money from each entrant.
Under the new WHS rules as mentioned earlier in this newsletter you will not be allowed to enter unless you have a confirmed new WHS handicap.
Any queries please contact Stuart via the details on the Tournament page .
Finally, we understand that our newsletter emails may be getting caught up in spam/junk mail, please share this email with your fellow players if they are not receiving these newsletters.
The course is looking as good as ever for this time of year, don’t take our word for it, get golfing!
