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.
Here is the “roadmap” we will operate to at Stocksfield Golf Club as advised by England Golf.
March 29th - Playing golf can resume with (up to) 4 ball play with pre-booked tee times. Takeaway food and drink only. Outdoor practice facilities may reopen and Coaching may take place for one-to-one lessons or groups of up to 6 (including coach).
We are delighted to announce that we have met the standards set by England Golf and have been awarded the SafeGolf standard.
SafeGolf is a partnership of UK golf bodies committed to promoting a safe and positive environment for all those participating, working and volunteering in the sport of golf.
We have now implemented a system for doing on-line top-up’s of your Competitions purse through the ‘My Golf’ option on the website (or on your smartphone). This means you no longer need to visit the shop to buy a top-up and it also means the top-up is added to your purse immediately with your purse balance increase verifying it has been done.
As we eagerly await March 29th when we can get back on the course there are a few announcements we wish to make. Firstly we are running a full program of Knock out competitions all with an entry fee of £2 per person per competition (including sweep). To enter please email - email@example.com with your name and the competitions you wish to enter. The entry fee will be taken from your purse when the draw is done so please ensure you have sufficient funds in your purse.
Great news, golf resumes on March 29th. Unfortunately the clubhouse can not open yet but at least we can get to playing in fourballs. Remember we must still adhere to the England Golf 'Play Safe - Stay Safe' guidance.
