Alternative to Men’s Club AGM 2020…click for more

Alternative to Men’s Club AGM 2020 As a result of COVID19 restrictions and uncertainty around future gatherings the Mens Committee have decided to devolve the functions of the  2020 AGM to the Captain and officers on a once-off basis.  The primary elements of the AGM are to receive and adopt the accounts, to receive reports and Captain’s address and to elect 2021 committee and officers. We believe that motions from members could not be debated equitably or properly even on a virtual platform, so we propose for this year only, not to take any such motions. You should have already received; Captain’s address, Secretary’s report, Statement of accounts, Nomination papers for 2021 committee. Nomination papers must be fully completed, with proposer and seconder signatures. A list of those members already nominated was circulated on Wed.25th. Nominations will be accepted by post or by hand at the club house not later than 3.00 p.m. on Friday, December 4th.  Ballot papers with names of  properly nominated persons who have indicated their willingness to have their names go forward for election will be forwarded to members by December 7th. Completed ballot papers will be accepted by post or by hand at the Clubhouse not later than 3.00 p.m. December 14th.  Counting of votes will be independently supervised. Captain and officers will meet on December 17th. to ratify accounts and declare election results. It  is important to repeat that this process has come about solely as a result of restrictions on movement and gatherings and that while it cannot replace a properly convened meeting it is the best solution for now.   Best wishes,...

World Handicap System

World Handicap System

Developed by The R&A and USGA in close coordination with existing handicapping authorities, the WHS will provide all golfers with a consistent measure of playing ability, with handicaps calculated in the same way wherever they are in the world. A key objective of the initiative was to develop a modern system, enabling as many golfers as possible to obtain and maintain a Handicap Index. Golfers will be able to transport their Handicap Index globally and compete or play a casual round with players from other regions on a fair basis. It will also indicate the score a golfer is reasonably capable of achieving the next time they go out to play. The Joint GUI/ILGU WHS Committee has developed a series of videos for clubs to review the content and prepare further for the forthcoming changes. These presentations are very detailed but allow the viewer to consume the information at their own pace. The password for each of the videos is  WHS2020 Video One https://vimeo.com/425462078 Video Two https://vimeo.com/425563977 Video Three  https://vimeo.com/425839828 Video...
