       Other Items

a) DCGU inter-club mens foursomes: Entrants will be invited and if more than two people enter a draw will be held.   

b) Day Away 2018: The day was enjoyed by all. Ben was very happy with the way Knighton Heath treated us – the food was good and they brought out extra when needed. The course was good. There is thought of going back again next year.

c) Weekend Away 2018: Only the pairings for the hotel remains to be sorted.

d) A free drop  is allowed if a ball comes to rest through the green in a crack caused by the current dry weather

e) The Centre has changed its logo but the Committee agreed that the Club should keep its logo unchanged.

f) After complaints about slow play members are requested  to encourage their playing partners to speed up e.g. not mark cards when it is their honour and let people through if there is a gap ahead.

g) Andy is putting in a ‘French Drain’ on the 8th to help with drainage during the winter.

h) From 1st January 2018 CONGU have introduced Category 5 handicaps for men and Category 6 for men and women providing for a maximum competition handicap of 54.0. Handicap software should automatically adjust for this.

i)  The Folke Golf Centre web site is being redesigned and will contain only information about the centre so a new club web site will be developed for club related information and links to the Centre web site as required.


Next Meeting: The next  meeting will be the Committee Meeting to be held at Folke on Wednesday 15 August at 7:30 pm.  All club members are invited to attend
