Bill Martin sadly passed away on Sunday 18th July after a short illness. Our thoughts are with his family and close friends at this difficult time.
Bill has been a member of Stocksfield Golf Club for 45 years and during that time he was one of the club’s greatest ambassadors.
A big thank you to NENW PGA for running a very successful Pro-Am at Stocksfield Golf Club.
Congratulations to Michael Nesbit on winning the best Pro prize with an excellent 66 and congratulations to Team Jobling on an excellent team score.
Coinciding with the June Medal this Saturday 5th June, we have a TGI Srixon Amateur Championship Qualifier. At no extra cost you have the chance of qualifying to play in an event with our Professional Nicky at The Belfry in October. On Saturday, Srixon will be sponsoring our event and have made a donation for the top 3 finishers!

Score Entry Procedure - We are changing the procedure for validating scores. From Saturday 8th May it is not necessary to physically return a scorecard or email a copy of your scorecard to the club, instead we ask that you keep hold of your scorecard and if we need to verify your score (or a 2) we will contact you.
In the circular email to members dated the 19/3/2021 we agreed to process the AGM agenda electronically due to the Coronavirus and associated Government directives, specifically around the avoidance of gatherings and the need for social distancing.
From Saturday 17th April we have access to the PSI (Player Score Input) terminals in the clubhouse. This means we can revert back to the old way of using scorecards as they were intended and entering scores directly into the PSI at the end of the round. Remember when using a PSI you must use the sanitiser both before and after touching the screen and please feel free to wipe the screen with the disinfectant spray.
By now most players will have entered a score into the WHS system and a few may be wondering why their handicap index has changed. Read on for explanation.
In order to simplify Competition and General Play score input we are enabling online ‘sign-in’ as well as online score entry for competitions. This means the procedure is the same if you are signing in to play a General Play score or a Competition score so please ensure you select the correct option as this has been causing a few problems.
